Feeling Like a Hurricane of Emotions

Hi. Remember me?

I’m sorry for the 2 week lull in posting. I promise to come back tomorrow with a real post… about running, motivation, and all that good stuff that you can typically expect from me.

Where I have been? Well, for some of the time, I was literally on the edge of civilization in Vermont (and not the correct side of civilization) for a wedding on a Thursday afternoon (who gets married on a Thursday afternoon?!) It was a nice – although “interesting” – wedding. And then we had another wedding to attend that Saturday. Yep, two weddings in 48 hours! We only have one wedding left in October and then wedding season is finally done for us this year. Yippee! I promise to update about the weddings as soon as I upload the pictures from my camera.

While in VT though, I did manage to go for a 9 mile “run” (there may have been some walking involved… I was literally running up – and then back down – a mountain). It was GORGEOUS! But it may have felt a bit dangerous as well… it was on an unfamiliar set of dirt roads that were sparsely populated. Very different from running past grocery stores and a bus stop, that’s for sure! I was gone for so long that my wonderful boyfriend was afraid that I had gotten lost, been kidnapped, or eaten by a bear… (like I said, wrong edge of civilization). But really, my phone wasn’t getting reception so I went without it. I didn’t know the time or my distance (until I got back)… I just went and enjoyed!

The other part of my absence from blogging is just because I’m a swirl of mixed emotions that aren’t interesting to process on a blog. We put an offer on a house, but a developer bid more so they can tear it down. They won. And then there is the prospect that my neurologist will be changing my generally innocuous (and extremely helpful) meds which just makes me uneasy and anxious. There was some happiness and excitement in those 2 weeks as well, but nothing worth noting yet. If things pan out, I’ll let you know. (Although, some of the happiness was the house… and we see how that went…)

See? Lame! But I should be back tomorrow to talk about a race I’m about to sign up for that will happen in 2 days… oh and there may be costumes involved! (sort of… not like Halloween costumes that Jill will enjoy… but some “extreme outfits”).

Back to School – PhD vs Marriage

Good luck on your way back to school, students! I thought I’d throw a comic out to everyone on their way to higher learning.

This fall for me is all about 2 things. 1) Weddings! (and all of the stuff that goes with them: bridal showers, bachelorette parties, and rehearsal dinners. Note: for other people, I’m not getting married). 2) Sending in my PhD applications again. Woo! So I personally enjoy that this comic mixes the two!

Good luck, all!

Silly Pictures… examples

I mentioned this morning that I’m in a silly picture phase. (I hope it lasts forever) But I thought maybe I should give a better set of examples. So I’m sharing some pictures from this summer, specifically, my best friend’s wedding. She’s the lovely bride and I’m the silly maid of honor.

Now I ask you, which two girls would you rather be friends with? Personally, I would choose the latter. (side note, I have no idea why her photographer couldn’t place us in the center of either photo)

I just wish I was more creative with silly faces…
