Hello lovelies! I hope you are having a fabulous weekend. Mine started off pretty rocky. I woke up super early, like going to school early, and could not for the life of me go back to sleep. I was having frantic dreams about selling ads for the yearbook and I was really nervous. Like, stomach doing flips nervous and making me feel all sick and stuff. Gross. But, I was excited and ate breakfast and went to do a workout for the first time since, *sigh* Monday. Darn school has taken over my days and thus removed any and all time for me to work out. I started with a HIIT workout and only got through one circuit because I was singing during the 1 minute break and nearly passed out from lack of oxygen. I decided it was time to move on and drenched in sweat from both the workout and passing out I got down on the mat for a little bit of Pilates. Sounds fun, right? I was so looking forward to having this great intense workout and I guess it was a little too intense. Just a little tip, never sing when you need air. I guess that’s why the gym teachers in middle school always yelled at us when we were talking.
Next came my very first essay of the year. Oh the joys of writing essays. Honestly, sometimes I like writing them. As long as I know what I am writing about and I did not know what I was writing about today. The Green Mile by Stephen King is our first book of the year (great American novel) and I did not get a single thing out of reading it. I think I actually skimmed the whole thing because our brilliant teacher is pulling things out of it that I do not remember actually reading. I stay pretty silent in AP Literature. If he calls on me, someone else answers before I even get a chance to say, “I have no idea what you’re talking about.” So I sat in front of my keyboard not knowing what to do at all, called my boyfriend to ask for help, and then bawled as I wrote the first paragraph. It’s a terrible essay but it’s only due for revision on Monday so I can only go up I suppose.
The last terrible thing on my list today was getting around to selling those ads. I knew it would be hard and I would get a lot of “no”s, but it’s really discouraging to keep hearing it over and over again. I did only go to 3 places but I meant to go to more. They just all had “no soliciting” signs on their doors. Darn. I applied for the positions of Proof Editor and Photo Editor and supposedly I’m the only person that applied for either so I’m bound to get one, but how the heck can I handle an editor position if I cried after getting three “no”s? Stress does not treat me well.
But, after about two hours of saying absolutely nothing and cuddling on the couch with my boyfriend (or Man Friend as my friend calls him) I finally cheered up and we had some fun. Have you ever watched Julie & Julia? It’s a great movie but it made me really hungry. And I’m not too thrilled with the idea of boning an entire duck, either.
I think I’m going to spend Sunday morning trying to work out again, perhaps after making french toast for breakfast, and finding new delicious snack recipes for school. Apple slices are nice, but I want variety.
How is your weekend going? Know any good snack recipes?
How do you handle stress?
Anyone boned a duck lately?
