For the record, I started writing this post on Thursday. Thursday. Sigh.
I was more productive Wednesday than I have been in a loooong time. Although not all of it had to do with school…in fact most of it didn’t. Most of the week I’ve been working on a paper that was due yesterday and I’ve been up pretty late every night. Now usually I go into the museum Wednesday mornings for my internship, but the internship gods (my supervisor) emailed me Tuesday night and said something came up and not to come in this week, just work from home. Best. News. Ever. I got to sneak in a few hours of sleep yesterday morning that I normally wouldn’t have and it made all the difference.
For as much as I’ve complained about the papers in my American Studies class, the class itself is super interesting. My professor is just full of random facts and finds really cool ways and different ways to look at objects. Plus, I don’t feel the pressure to participate in class like I did this summer. That was the worst. Kind of loving classes this semester even if I am busy and stressed all the time. I enjoy the content. I guess that makes it worth it, right?
Anyway, I came home from class feeling very much relieved. My paper was turned in and I could relax for a bit. Would I catch up on sleep? Nah. I decided to bake the pumpkin bread I’d been dreaming of (and whose ingredients I had been staring at) for the past week. I attempted another bread a few weeks ago and it was a massive failure. Luckily this one turned out perfectly! I got the recipe from this site and added pumpkin seeds to the top! Here are a few pictures:
Unfortunately, I didn’t realize how blurry my bread pictures were until I uploaded them, and by then the bread was mostly gone. Oh well, hopefully you get the idea.
So after I finished baking the bread I actually wanted to go running. Who am I seriously? I hadn’t run in months, but it was gorgeous outside and I figured I should take advantage of it. The only disappointment was my Nike+ sportsband seems to be broken, so I couldn’t calculate my run like I wanted to. I also had never run since moving into our new place. I decided to run to Mike’s apartment to see if I could. The distance really isn’t that much. I don’t know how much really, maybe a mile and a half, but parts of it are very hilly and I am definitely not used to running on hills. I was really pushing myself towards the end, but I made it! And then I made Mike drive me home haha. Now that the weather is cooler I’m hoping to make time to run more often. I’m really pissed that my sportsband broke though. I’m hoping I can get some answers from Nike.
So, paper, class, baking, run, came home for some dinner, and then we decided to watch a movie. I passed out about 15 minutes into it. I must’ve worn myself out! I felt pretty accomplished with my day though, but I probably should’ve done a bit more school work. That’s what today is for though!
What’s your favorite fall food? If you’re a runner, what are some of your favorite songs to listen to while you run?
