Sorry for the day off yesterday, I have this annoying project to finish in which I have to cut a 10,000 word chapter of my dissertation to 3,000 words for a conference I’m presenting my research at this week. And I can’t lose any of the content that makes it all make sense and be so innovative. It’s impossible, I’m pretty sure. I’m working on it though. I’ll let you know how it goes on Friday and whether everyone just stared at me blankly or if they grasped what I was saying and think I’m a genius. I’m feeling one of these is far more likely but I really hope it just goes well. It’s my seventh or eighth conference but I’ve never had to edit so much that I feel is crucial to my point so it’s by far the most stressful.
Anyway, you know what cures stress? TACOS.
If you guessed that that’s just MY plate, you’d be right. Those are my 6. Joe’s are out of view. If you also guessed that I was still hungry afterward, you’d be right again, you little smartypants. So rungry. All the time.
And because I was procrastinating my paper editing, I took a quiz on which Disney princess I am.
I was a little bummed about Pocahontas at first (mostly because I forgot she was a Disney princess) but those two descriptions are spot on which is funny. My friend got Cinderella and I can’t think of anyone I’m less like in the universe.
I also just got done with my Sunday morning run, which I finished 5 seconds before it started raining. It was the absolute best kind of run where every single second of it is fun and easy and energized and you just never feel tired or sore or anything the whole way, even though you’re pushing the pace. It was insane and the kind of run I only get every few weeks or so (while running a bit faster anyway, not like recovery pace) and one of those that reminds you why you love to run. I’m in the best mood ever and on a total runner’s high.
But I overheated a bit in my Nike Epic Sweatshirt under my jacket and so my face got suuuuuuuper red. Side note: I love this jacket. I love being neon. I do not love how my waist-length hair is impossible to tie up for running but yet I do not want to cut it. Ok, enough off-topic rambling.
When was your last absolutely amazing run?
Does having a fun meal help you feel less stressed or is that just me?
