First week of classes is over! Although there were only 4 days in my week, it felt so long. I haven’t been in real classes in almost a year! My classes in Spain were a joke and I had absolutely no outside obligations besides classes, so it was quite a reality check. My schedule this semester isn’t too bad though.
Monday, Wednesday & Friday: Biopsychology 9:35-10:25, History 1500 to present 10:40-11:30, and Analyzing Spanish Literature from 11:45-12:35
Tuesday & Thursday: 11:00-11:45 Ice Skating and 2:30-3:45 Honors seminar in ancient Greek comedy
Every morning I wake up at 5:30am to be at a local elementary school for a before school research program.
I also have a work-study position at the theatre, a research assistant position in a lab on campus, as well as a thesis to start researching.
I enjoy everything I do and I much prefer to be busy than to have a ton of free time. Structure helps me manage my time better 🙂
To celebrate the end of an exhausting week, I wanted to go ice skating! After an unsuccessful gym adventure (reminder – don’t go to the gym after 5pm, especially in January!), I really wanted to go out and do something at night. I convinced Justin and a friend to go with me and we had a good time skating (or attempting to skate, for some of us ;))
Today I wanted to attend a beginner spin class at the gym, which was FREE and especially for beginners, which I was really into. Unfortunately when I got to the gym, I realized I had left my sneakers at home and wouldn’t have had enough time to go home and grab them. I decided to try and run outside. I ended up running close to 2 miles in 14 degree weather. Not too bad! I’m not keeping track of times, I just want to get the distance in. My training plan for the 10k doesn’t start until next week, but I wanted to get a head start.
I’m currently avoiding homework/laundry/cleaning my room so I should probably get to that!
