200th Post!

Monday, June 25, 2012

Welcome to my 200th post!  Even though I've had this blog for four and a half years I think I've done most of that writing in just the past year alone.  For a while it just covered individual trips I've taken, but I had a feeling you were dying to hear more amazing and exciting stories from my every day life.  I know I thrilled you all with my carrot story from yesterday, and who could forget the day I fought with my duvet, or the time I shanked a wall and saw a proposal in Pizza Hut in the SAME DAY!?  I know you all live for it and don't worry there's much more where that came from!

So, while other people give out prizes to celebrate their blogging milestones, I give you... some more randomness.

1.) I hate my freezer.  Anyone who has lived in a college dorm will probably know what I'm talking about.  The little freezer that is really just a box inside the fridge with a slightly lower temperature.  I don't know if I just have bad luck with these freezers, but I've never had one that actually freezes things.  It's kind of ironic because, while it can't keep my ice cream in a solid state, it does have the ability to amass three inches of solid ice all around the inside of the box.  I don't understand the science behind it, but I spent most of the afternoon on my knees scraping the ice out because I bought myself ice cream today and I'll be damned if that ice cream is going to melt!
That's a whole lot of ice for something that can't freeze an ice cube
2.) I think I've figured out why my shins were hurting while running!  I was so focused on not running too hard or fast and tiring myself out that I was actually using a lot of energy to keep myself at a jogging pace.  Not only was this wasting energy but I think I was putting a lot of pressure on my shins by trying to keep my self at the slower pace.  Today I just focused that energy on moving myself forward and I felt so much better and a lot faster, too!

3.) I am in desperate need of a good book.  Over the past few weeks I've started 5 or 6 of them.  I've finally struggled my way to the end of one and I've completely given up on another (which I don't think I have ever done before!). Doing a bit of reading (anything but school work) is usually what I do right before bed and it has been killing me that I haven't found a single book that has kept my interest! I would be happy with ANY suggestions!

Well, I think I've rambled on long enough for now.  Thank you for sharing this momentous occasion with me! 


  1. The freezer is a pain and you'll be happy to toss it out when your college days are over.

    1. I will be sad to be done with my program but beyond happy to be done with that freezer!

  2. AHHH When I first moved to Ireland we lived in an apartment over a printer shop...that had one of those tiny fridges with the box "freezer" (I used that term loosely) things would melt in there but for some strange reason, it was able to frost itself like none other....if I left it go for more than 2 weeks I would have a teeny tiiinnyy space that i could barely get my hand into. We refuse to ever live in a place with tiny fridges EVER AGAIN! haha!

    1. Yes! That is exactly what I'm talking about. It's terrible and I can't wait to be done with it!
