Today was actually a rather productive day for me. I woke up at 8, and my mom asked if I wanted to go Christmas Shopping with her at 8:30. Not only was I able to completely get ready, I also made gingerbread pancakes. All in about 30 minutes. It was rather successful and a prouder moment in my life.
On our shopping adventure I ended up finding a cute sweater and headbands. Go figure. Oh well-I’ll use both of them but I suppose I should be looking for other things. I don’t normally shop at Hollister (or actually ever) but this sweater caught my eye.
Then after getting back I had another Asian Pear and a Swiss cheese and turkey sandwich. We were all out of wheat bread so I ate wonder kids white bread. It has 6 grams of fiber per two slices,-it wants to pretend its wheat bread I suppose. Also on that sandwich was my undying love-spinach. Nom nom nom.
Then off to practice:
6X200s odds-kick-swim, evens drill-swim
3X100 fly-free by 25, back-free, breast-free
3X400IM (they were so upset, but I was just like hell, all we do in college are 400 ims.)
6X50s sprint free off the blocks
6X200 Free sprint
All in all, it was a nice club practice. I am at the highest of 7 levels on the club team and have been since I was 15 years old. It was a big deal when I moved into that group at 15 (because it was normally 17 and above), well today there is a young lady by the name of Abby who is 8. Eight years old. Incase you were curious of her times, she swims a 50 yard freestyle in 30 seconds flat and 100 in 1:01. She is eight. Not eighteen, but eight. Not only does she work her booty off, but the coach often makes her do less and she begs him to allow her to stay and finish. That girl is going to be quick. Can I just refresh in your mind an eight year old swimming a 1:01 100 freestyle?
I was supposed to go to a grimy Chinese buffet to celebrate Anna getting into a study abroad program in China but she bailed. She got into a very intense yearlong study abroad program where she takes 16 credits of pure Chinese for a solid year. Oh well, there is always another day before I leave. Actually not really because I have to go home on Monday.
So I just had chicken and a baked potato and salad number 17. But no really-why are sweet potatoes so good?
Because my brother thinks he is on America’s Next Top Model.
Day 7: You’re most Prized possession
That is so simple. My teddy bear bloomy has been with me since I was 1 year old. He is like a creepy old man now and I love him. I will never get rid of him even if he has permanent coffee stains on his face and somehow his nose was sucked into his insides.
Question for you:
What is your wardrobe staple?
Most prized possession?
Did you/would you study abroad?
I would if I wouldn’t miss sports seasons. The program I’m in though would push my graduation back pretty far due to student teaching. They do offer student teaching in Australia which I have been contemplating.
