Today, I am sad. An I-was-caught-pouting-out-the-window-on-the-way-home-from-the-bank-sad.
About mid-December, I landed my first “big-girl” marketing job, my introduction to real life. I was PSYCHED. I am STILL PSYCHED. After two years of post-college job searching, I had finally found something that put my degree to good use!
I picked up my first check this morning.. and reality hit. Where did all my money go? Taxes. Pout. This is the real world. After brushing it off, realizing I have an awesome job, and complaining to my mom (“I thought they’d take like.. eighty dollars!”) I felt ten times better.
And remember the seventy-one degree weather I was pumped for? Seventy-three! Today I ate frozen yogurt outdoors and ran in a t-shirt.
Danny and I took an afternoon work break to Skinny Dip. No, we didn’t swim naked in the Atlantic, we ate frozen yogurt!
I chose a mixture of coconut, dark chocolate, & red velvet yogurt, topped with TONS of pineapple, strawberries, blackberries, and a hint of peanut-buttery chocolate goodness.
My running as of late.. has been ROUGH. I blame this on my hatred for cold weather and treadmills. I almost didn’t even want to get out there today, but I am so glad I did. Today’s run reminded me of how much I ENJOY the sport. Although my legs were slow and lazy the first mile, the last two felt great. The only reason I headed back so soon was because it began to get dark, and I am
I took the run easy, and enjoyed how great and alive my body felt. At one point, I passed a couple walking.. they smiled and said hello, and I smiled back then accidentally spit on them in return.
After I picked up my check today I said, “tonight I’m going to do yoga to relax and think about my taxes.” This is still my plan, although I’d like to do yoga (trying out Jillian Michael’s DVD for the first time) and think about cupcakes, Valentine’s Day, John Stamos, and forever 21 instead. My mind never rests. Cheers!
