The Crazy Little Thing

  1. Shoulder injury still irritating me on certain exercises. I don’t know if I should stop them or power through it. Ugh. Really annoying.
  2. I finally saw the fabled chicken legged beast. Kind of cool to see one in real life. They exist. Don’t skip leg day.
  3. On that note, I also find myself critiquing people’s form a lot more now. Not sure I have exactly perfect form, but I’ve turned into one of those people. Ew.
  4. Along with wildlife documentaries, I now watch American Ninja Warrior. Like damn though, I could probably get past the first obstacle and then I’d die.
  5. I videotaped myself doing deadlifts because I was worried about form, but it turns out I’ve been doing them pretty solidly, so yay!

That’s all old news I forgot to publish like a month ago.

But it’s been a hot minute! I feel like I’ve been so busy, it seems ridiculous how fast the past month has sped by.

Working out has become so routine, there’s not much news to report. Still doing it regularly, eating and gaining weight. I see differences, but there’s nothing too drastic yet. Gotta start mixing it up and going harder. I think my shoulder is better now! I think I figured out that I’ve become super lactose intolerant, which sucks. It used to be just milk that affected me, but now I can’t eat ice cream, milkshakes, or even the tiniest dollop of soft serve. I mean, I still do it, but just not as regularly. Makes me sad because I love ice cream so much. I did start going to the gym all by myself in the past couple of weeks. It’s a bit weird at first, but I got used to it. Knowing what I need to do, turning on some music, and getting to work, ignoring pretty much everyone else.

I’ve been working a lot more. Working two part-time jobs really feels like a full-time, even though it’s not as many hours. I’m glad I have work every day so I can wake up early and take on the day with a good start. I’ve started napping less…I don’t think I’ve napped in the past couple of weeks, so that’s nice. Trying to stop the habit that seemed to start recently. Work has kept me busy.

In my free time, I’ve started hitting the GRE more intensively. It’s been way too long and I still need to sign up, but soon! It will be over. And then I have other, more pressing things to focus on. Ugh. Every time I think about it, I just want to stop. I want to take a break, even though I’ve been pretty much on break for the last couple of years since graduation. I want to read more, watch new shows, rewatch favorite movies/shows, and just take a breath. But there’s really no time.

So I’m currently on a dating hiatus since my last dip in the pool didn’t go so hot and it’s been a few weeks and it’s like I’m so sick of people right now. Basically, if it happens naturally cool, but for now, no more set-ups. Can’t say I’m “heartbroken”, but there is some residual emotions. Sigh. It’s been a rough month.

I think I’ve been keeping myself busy so I can stay distracted, but sooner or later (now), I gotta deal with everything. I would just like some good news.
