I will admit, I am a sucker for these get to know you type surveys. I have seriously dropped the ball on doing the blogger awards so let’s call this a makeup for all those I missed – ok?
I could have left you with a brain dump of a post because boy has this week been a whirlwind and sadly not even at the end of it. Tonight is the big event for work meaning I won’t be near my computer or even sitting till about 10 pm. Tomorrow is a full day of work at both jobs with a weekend full of, oh hey, more work at the running store. What I have realized is that a. if I am going to hold this crazy schedule, sticky notes are a must (I have between 3-5 per day with to do’s, schedules and lists) and b. I may have to *gasp* start meal planning and prepping. I have been so averse to this because I like just going with what I feel like eating that night but getting home at 8 and trying to scrounge together stuff slash stuff my face all before bed is tight. I am planning on mapping out the best sales Friday so that Saturday night shopping is easier. That means getting enough food to last me the week and stick to my budget. Daunting to say the least. It also doesn’t help that the weather is going to the dumps from Sunday to Tuesday meaning I need to plan my life accordingly due to how much I depend on walking and public transportation. Throw another one at me world, I dare you.
Now to the survey, I saw this on Tamzin’s blog.
A is for age:
22, nothing special about this age to be honest. Still feel young yet old at the same time. Barely even celebrated this birthday – 23 doesn’t seem that special either. I am not a big birthday celebration person, I rarely do anything special if anything at all.
B is for breakfast today:
I am the ‘bad blogger’ and rarely eat breakfast. I am a huge snacker so I am usually racing out the door with a coffee in hand. If my stomach doesn’t want it, not going to force it.
C is for currently craving:
Seafood like whoa. I think homesickness coupled with stress makes me crave all things that remind me of home aka New England seafood.
D is for dinner tonight:
I have the bare minimum on hand right now so last night I roasted some kabocha squash and lite firm tofu (I have that gluten free soy sauce I was sent in the GF Connect box to try!) Tonight, no idea. I have popcorn, eggs and carrots left. I am getting home so late I will see how I feel.
E is for favorite type of exercise:
Running is really what I crave. I do like to do classes if I had time slash money for them but right now the ease of running is making it my go to.
F is for an irrational fear:
Being broke and have no money to my name. Yep, I swear I have nightmares over this.
G is for gross food:
Peanut butter, gag. It is hard to even type it.
H is for hometown: !
South Shore in Massachusetts. Oh I do miss home. Lived in the same house my whole life.
I is for something important:
Finding balance in life and reminding myself of what I have fought so hard for. We all need those motivational reminders.
J is for current favorite jam:
Again, not a big music person and actually have no jam in my apartment SO I am going to say roasted squash. Where would I be without the ease of this?
K is for kids:
Again, 22. Don’t rush me!
L is for current location:
The lovely Washington DC. New home right out of college.
M is for the most recent way you spent money:
My money is only spent on the Metro to get to work, to pay my bills and food to eat. Lame but true. I haven’t spent my money on anything else since moving here.
N is for something you need:
Time, lots of time. A day off would be nice too. Oh and money. Man I guess I need more than I thought.
O is for occupation:
I work full time for a non-profit and part time at a running store.
P is for pet peeve:
Eek I have a lot of these. I guess I will place a focus on the blog world in general. WIAW is a pet peeve, mostly due to some of the unrealistic things that are put out there. Another one in real life is people dropping the ball and being flakey. Hate it, probably because I am always that go to, on time type person.
Q is for a quote:
Easy – “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it is about learning to dance in the rain”
R is for random fact about you:
I wear my janky timex watch (that has seen way better days in the 10 + years I have had it) every day. I also wear it so the time faces me. That is actually how I wear all my watches.
S is for favorite healthy snack:
I adore snacks. Really any kind. I love me some popcorn but I guess one of my all time crunch loves is carrots. The big ones, not those little baby ones although I do eat both.
T is for favorite treat:
Again, I try not to label food so my favorite ‘treat’ is a night to myself with no expectations or responsibilities.
U is for something that makes you unique:
Hmm…I don’t consider myself that unique but I guess my running without music. All distances with no music.
V is for favorite vegetable:
This is tough, real tough. I love zucchini so I will go with that but I have some close runner ups with asparagus and mushrooms.
W is for today’s workout:
10 mile run this morning in slightly hotter DC weather.
X is for X-rays you’ve had:
Pelvic bone xray for my stress fracture over a year ago plus lots of teeth ones because you know me and my bad luck with the dentist.
Y is for yesterday’s highlight:
Catching up on the new 90210. Yep all four seasons of it. Holy crap my last two plus weeks have been consumed by that show but I am finally caught up and can watch it on tv now.
Z is for your time zone:
Eastern standard time, well duh.
I really liked this one. Exactly what I needed when my mind was in about a billion places. Bear with me the rest of this week, no idea what I will have time for.
Keep truckin’, hopefully you guys are at least looking forward to Friday. Not sure if Fridays mean anything to me anymore.
Questions: Pick a letter and do it for yourself, heck take the whole survey if you want!
