I never really intend for my blog to be have very many whiney posts but it is realistic updates of what is going on in my life, whether it’s pancakes, running or life in general. There haven’t been a lot of life in general posts because quite frankly I haven’t had a lot to report. I’m boring…sue me. I don’t have a lot of friends…sue me. I don’t go out binge drinking with undergradates that I’m trying to teach them alternatives to that culture…sue me. What am I going to recap each weekend…hanging out and eating popcorn while gossiping on a Friday night with my housemate? I know it probably thrills you. I can’t say it’s completely being busys fault but I can say that I haven’t really made the biggest effort to stay busy
I just quite frankly don’t care and I don’t plan to stay in the arctic tundra for my entire life. I really love my job (and educating students…that’s a post in itself) but outside of that…I don’t know. Long story short, I’m in a bit of a funk.
So yes, this WIAW with my parents has kind of turned into a bit of a life update which I’m fine with. As long as I attach a photo of ice cream, I’ll get everyone to just comment on how good ice cream is right? Moving on, I think part of the reason that I’ve had a hard time here is that the town itself is not runner friendly.
Not runner friendly meaning the terrain and packed snow make it impossible to run outside. There aren’t many people that run…in Syracuse sure but that is 45 minutes away and if I plan to never eat again I guess I could make that drive everyday. Plus it’s obviously just a touch to cold to be outdoors anyways…Running isn’t my whole life though and that’s fine. I can mindlessly watch TV.
While I’ve made great friends, most of my friends aren’t here. Though I’m not really sure where they are. Who exactly am I considering my friends that aren’t here, my family and Tim? I mean I guess both technically are.
For me personally, I find February to be an overall funky month. Last year at this time I was just recovering from a broken arm. We did have a warmer winter last year (compared to the winter 2 years ago when it was -30 quite a few times (good thing my hair froze multiple times to and from swim practice) This year it’s much more snowy and winter like but at least not that cold. Some people might enjoy the winter I’m not one of them…I just find February a month to get through. Though it’s the shortest month, it sure feels like the longest.
Here is some food because I did title it a WIAW post with my parents:
Finally, I’m taking requests for more main girl videos so feel free to comment here, email or tweet me ideas.
Question for you:
What month is the hardest for you to get through?
Do you have a handful of closer friends or a bunch of good friends?
