I don’t think I have ever woken up to my alarm, until Monday morning. Signs of a good weekend? I think yes. Nothing a cooler run can’t fix though, that got me awake and ready for the day (plus three coffees…).
I would trade… the next four months of limited/non-existent sister time for unlimited time. My sister officially is off for her study abroad in Turks and Caicos. Because it is a research center there that is sort of in the middle of nowhere, she gets barely any internet (and barely any real showers!). I am so happy she is doing this though, I think her adventure is something that will really give her a remembered experience. I will miss her though – her blog better give me enough info to keep my sanity of missing her at bay.
I would trade…a throw in your face jam packed work week for a little slower pace to ease me back in. Going from working three days last week to a full five days this week was already enough. Now add in three presentations to big organizations, two school visits, two nighttime mentor sessions, a five hour training session on Friday and a three hour recruitment event for 9/11 and you have yourself a ‘is this real life’ week. On the bright side, I have a feeling this week will fly by.
I would trade… the sleep I am not getting back from the weekend for a full uninterrupted night sleep. I am trying to just get everything done so I can go to bed earlier but without fail I wake up multiple times during the night for the bathroom. Just the ups and downs make for restless night sleeps no matter what. I swear, one day on here you guys will hear me say I AM HEALED. One day…
I would trade… the cracked iphone for nothing other than a break free phone. Luckily it is the back but it is pretty badly shattered. Whoops. Dancing, it falling multiple times due to that… not a good mix. Sorry iphone, I was having too much fun.
I would trade… the low of having to come off such a great weekend for something to look forward to. I never thought I would even consider going to young Alumni weekend the first weekend in October. All of a sudden I want to, like really want to. I probably won’t pay for the events but just stay with friends and hang with them as long as I can find a ride. What I realized on the lonely 3 hour drive back was that I missed that social aspect, that ease of being able to see people, that release of just letting go and having fun. All of those things I have not found in Dc yet, I say yet because I do hope I can find it. DC will be bearable without it but who wants to go through a year like that? Even my coworkers remarked that a. I looked exhausted but b. I was at the top of my game and ready to go. That is what a weekend like that does, it recharges you for what is to come.
But of course there are things I would not trade…I would not trade
- the cooler temps. My apartment feels great with open windows and no fan. Probably going to help the sleeping situation as well. Even better, using my oven will be bearable! Won’t feel like a heat box.
- Running motivation. Lately, I am getting this great motivation to push myself a bit harder, try new routes and really test my running capabilities due to the overwhelming blogging friends support. That is what I like to feel.
- This past weekend. Who the frick cares if I am tired? I want to do it all over again.
- A buddy to gush to. Thanks girl, you know this girl just needed to ramble about her weekend fun to someone!
- Winning $100 to lululemon through Bess be fit. Hello a broke girls heaven!!!
And power on.
Questions: What would you trade up this Tuesday? What wouldn’t you trade?
