It’s late, for me. (….10:47 pm….)
Well, compared to my normal bedtime these days, it’s early. I’m laying here in bed and I have 13 minutes before I am forcing lights out. So I might as well write, right? I don’t even know where to start!
First of all. Remember that post I tried to give some funny advice on picking your NCAA bracket? …yeah don’t follow it, I’m in the bottom 3 in all my brackets. (WHOOPS). But my Badgers are still hanging in there! They play tonight and need all the love they can get!
Another professor went on maternity leave and I am covering her class and labs. To say these first couple days have been insane is an understatement. I clear my desk, only to have papers/tests/quizzes pile up the next minute. While this is going to look awesome on my file to say I took this on in my 1st year as a professor, I will now say it’s going to be a miracle if I make it through the next month without any gray hair or having an anxiety attack.
In addition to my work life taking over my life, coaching frisbee + trying to find a new place to live + trying to buy a road bike when I have no idea what I’m doing has been challenging. For the record, I LOVE COACHING FRISBEE! It is the best 1.5 hours of my day…but it’s 1.5 hours of my day that I’m not working out and not catching up on life things. I tell myself it’s all about choices, so I have no right to complain. But is it too much to ask for more hours in a day?
Did anyone see the GIRLS season finale? It was my favorite of any of the season finales! I was totally in love with this season…and not just because Hannah went to Iowa. I loved seeing all four of them grow up and mature more so this season than any before. Shosh is by far my fave. Thoughts?
Um. Greek Yogurt Alfredo Spaghetti Squash Bowls. CAN WE SAY AMAZE? My friend Beth led me to the recipe and I altered it to fit my needs…recipe coming soon! (so like in 2 months).
The best surprise of this semester is how much fun I’ve had teaching a nutrition class to non-majors. Most of them are seniors, so the motivation can be lacking some days, but most days they have so many great questions! It’s a much more laid back atmosphere than teaching intro nutrition classes to nutrition majors where we have a very strict and robust curriculum to get through. Although it’s been a lot of work, I’ve had fun with them this semester. I’m still on the no-repeat outfit challenge and my sneaky office snapchat selfie game is as strong as eva.
The fact that I actually did laundry and my dishes today is a miracle. So I’m celebrating that…it’s the little things right?
I went on a date with a guy a couple weeks ago (yes, a real date with a real guy…WHAT UP 27). But that’s not the real story here. He asked me if I wanted kids. Without thinking I said yes.. Followed by (still without thinking) “actually i have no idea. I thought I did, but now I don’t know”…he was confused, but I was crystal clear…..and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about this convo. I have been so focused on grad school/starting my career that thinking about finding someone + starting a family has been in the background. Over the past few years I didn’t realize how much I had changed until that date with that guy when I got asked 1023 life questions and was surprised at more of my answers than just the kids one. It was wierd, but a good wierd.
Still wanting to recap the Nashville trip I took with the sis a few weeks ago.
I’m going to Boston, tomorrow! RANDOM I KNOW.
Any advice on what to do and what to eat?
Ok so that blogpost took 21 minutes. Whoops! Tell me something about your life!
