Nikki said a high point in her life was finding my blog?
I’m pretty bummed that no one else thinks that I am the highlight of the life. Actually, I’m really excited no one said finding my blog was the low point of their year.
I couldn’t think of any Tuesday morning songs to greet you with today so booo. I woke up this morning to about 1000 text messages. I wonder if people, especially my housemates, have realized I am in bed at 11, I’m not at the library. I turned the tv on to find the Muary Show on. Normally I watch CNN, but I just couldn’t stop watching the Maury show. How embarrassing…
Today I had a nice chocolately waffle with peanut butter topping. I added about 10 times more peanut butter after this photo, but I couldn’t get it off the spoon so it would take a decent photo.
Tuesday and Thursday mornings are spent cleaning my room and getting my life together. I cannot sleep in a dirty room and I can’t even begin to do homework-I get terribly sidetracked.
For lunch I had another quiche (asparagus) and some conscous. I had never tried coscous before, but I’m really glad I did. It’s a mixture of organic rice, melon, some seasonings and other things that I’m honestly not too sure about and I don’t think the people at the café were either. After my education class on Tuesdays and Thursdays, I work on my homework in the organic food café on campus so I always like to try something new (with my quiche of course).
After my last practice of the season today I got dinner with Tyler. She counted for me all season in my distance events. Did you know distance swimmers need counters? God knows that is a good thing, because I can’t count to 66 while swimming and racing. (and singing songs in my head).
I only do well because of her awesome countage.
I got a new wrap today called the Oregon Hills wrap. Do I have any readers from the Oregon area to contest this is mostly what you eat? Well inside were grilled veggies, rice and cheese sauce all wrapped up in a spinach wrap. It’s not as good as the baja fajita but it was still really good.
Tonight, I still need to pack for my swim meet. We are leaving at 9am tomorrow, so I’ll probably be packing at like 8:50…
Oh yes Three Tangent Tuesday. My life is one long tangent and I tend to go way around my destination and then double loop back to my destination. I’m basically a pro at tangents. (But not finding the area under a curve using a tangent vector.) UMM-I’m sorry about my inner nerd.
1. I used to want to be a zoologist. Can we talk about my love for animals? I always wanted to work with big cats but then I fell in love with math.
Can't you tell I'm a natural with animals?
2. My favorite color is yellow. Call me sunshine, I don’t care.
3. I want to go teach in Washington State after college, but first I plan to get my masters possibly back in VA. I wouldn’t mind teaching in VA either so we will just see where the wind takes me.
Day 18: How do you feel about disrespecting or not being close with your parents.
Well that is really hard for me. I am extremely, 100% loyal to my parents. Honestly, there has not been one point in my life that my parents didn’t support or weren’t there for me. I love my family terribly and can’t imagine growing up anywhere else.
That being said, I understand in special cases where you may not feel close to either parents and I don’t shove my beliefs on you. If you aren’t close to your family, that is your call 100%, but I will always be extremely close with mine.
This may be the only family photo in the last decade.
Speaking of which, I can’t wait to see my brother and dad in Buffalo on Thursday. They are driving 8 hours to come see me swim. <3
Last Year at Niagra Falls
Question for you:
1. Are you coming to see me swim in Buffalo?
Bonus points if you are.
2. Are you close with your family?
