So I’m almost halfway done with finals and it’s the most freeing feeling. I have excellent plans with my job, family, friends and my boyfriend for the month of August. I hate to say that school has put my life on hold, because I really love learning and I definitely identify myself as a student. Let’s just say that I’m going to be really glad to show people how much I love them and I really am not trying to ignore them! Ha!
This evening, I plan on an excellent run after my anatomy lab final. I really really REALLY need to feel the road beneath my feet. I need to hear my heart beat and feel myself against the wind. It’s an unexplainable love that I so miss when I go 3 or 4 days without it because an “A” in a class is sadly temporarily more important.
I love the ad below. Running has changed my body in so many fantastic ways that will help me live a longer, more vital life! But it has its, err, unflattering side effects— scraped knees, busted stank feet and toes, chafing, etc. Not so glamorous, eh?
My knees are tomboys… They get bruised and cut every time I play soccer run. I’m proud of them and wear my dresses short. My mother worries I will never marry with knees like that. But I know there’s someone out there who will say to me “I LOVE YOU and I LOVE YOUR KNEES and I want the four of us to grow old together.” Just Do It.
How do you handle very stressful weeks? To whom or to what do you turn to ease your stress??? XOXO
