Tequila shots were prolly a bad idea. In fact, it’s 1500 right now and I can still feel the burn in my esophagus.
But part one of the birthday celebrations went well. It was a little lackluster but I think it’s because I had really really high expectations and of course nothing can ever compare to the “perfect” night.
My friends and I pre-gamed before going out dancing at the local (read: sketchy) bar. I definitely had a blast dancing away! However all the drinking definitely left me feeling a little out of it as I hadn’t drunk enough to be drunk but I definitely wasn’t sober. I think that the fact that I A) wasn’t well hydrated (oops) and B) hadn’t eaten a lot prior to drinking (double oops) left me feeling in a lightheaded state. But I still had lots of fun 🙂
So that coupled with the fact that I could feel my legs being slow and fatigued while dancing led me to *gasp* take a rest day. Definitely LONG overdue. But my stupid body wouldn’t let me enjoy the extra two hours of sleep that I wanted to take advantage of. Boo! But it did feel really nice to be able to lay in bed with my quilt wrapped around me and listen to the wind that I was NOT out in haha.
All this lack of sleep + running lots + partying lots finally caught up to me today and I was soooo out of it (I even skipped one of my classes *gasp*. The only reason I didn’t skip more was because I had to physically turn things in. Boo!) I’m definitely not hungover (record secure!) but I’m out of it enough that my Spanish prof totally called me out on it in class today as I wasn’t able to participate with the usual enthusiasm that I give. And of course my friend next to me goes (in Spanish) “Too much tequila last night” haha. But with this prof it wasn’t really all that awkward. But still slightly embarrassing to be called out.
And I was no out of it that I *almost* didn’t respond when Hot Spanish TA said hi to me in the hallway as I was waiting for one of my classes. Nothing special but still, it was a little boost this morning 🙂
So not much running today (well none actually) but I’m gearing up for my 23k run tmrw. The weather forecast looks horrendous as Hurricane Ida will be blessing us with her presence but I think I can do it. What better present to myself that a long run in a Nor’Easter? I’m so bamf that I’ll rock it hahaha.
Off to go privately tutor a kid in statistics. He contacted me earlier this week and despite my school having a really good — and FREE — tutoring program (of which I am a part of in both stats and physics) he wants to pay me. So between yesterday, today and Sunday I’m tutoring him for 4 hours total and he already wrote me a $100 check for my time. Holllllleeeerrrrrrr. So I better go earn that cash!
And then: Birthday Round 2 haha
