Longest Week Ever

As some of you are aware (from Twitter, recent posts, and my life in general), this week has been kind of crazy for me. Well, sorry to bore you with a lengthy post, but here goes!

Tuesday was just an off dayAnd since waking up Tuesday, my whole life has felt kind of strange. Ever have that happen? It’s felt like I went into a mini-depressed state (weird, right?). I just wanted to sleep, eat, curl up in a ball, watch TV, etc.  As a result, I didn’t do a single bit of homework, only worked out once, probably gained 5 pounds, and ended up totally exhausted.  How I am exhausted from napping twice is beyond me!


Here’s my life story since Tuesday morning:

I woke up at 6:10 in order to put clothes on and head to work at the gym at 6:30.  As I sat at the desk watching people begin their workouts, I started thinking about how awful I felt.  My belly was funny, my head felt wobbly.  I had intended on sticking around for my workout, but when 10 o’clock rolled around, I was out that door faster than lightning.  I went home to take a nap, but had to wake up quickly in order to make it to an interview.  I interviewed for an assistant swim coach position, and I find out the results tomorrow. Fingers crossed! The interview went well in my opinion!

Following the interview, I was feeling pretty good, and decided to squeeze in a 40 minute run before I had to head to class.  I ended up going about 4.5 miles, but regretted it after.  I went right back into my sickly stage again, and it lasted all night. 

For class, we headed on a field trip! We went to a speaker presentation.  The speaker told us about her experience living with a mental health disability.  She even escaped from the Harrisburg State Hospital in order to find the life she deserved and start advocating for herself.  It was awesome!!!!!

When I got home, though, I felt feverish and quickly hit the sack.  Woke up Wednesday to substitute in the class I student taught in.  It is an emotional support classroom for grades 3-5, so a lot of the kiddos were ones that I had in my room last year.  I really enjoyed being there…never a dull moment! It did leave me quite exhausted though.  I decided to not push the exercise again and skipped it! I took part in a swimming pasta party at my house instead.  The team has their first meet this weekend my roommate cooked some yummy food and the team came over to carbo-load!


Swim team chow down from when I was still on the team!

I was in bed watching Tuesday’s Glee by 9.  I loved the episode.  Somehow, though, I went into breakdown mode while watching.  I guess I am overly stressed! I cried for a solid hour for no good reason.  It made me feel better though! Then, I helped out a friend in need (once again, love you Rach Smile), and passed out…only to wake up for work again this morning!

While all of this commotion was taking place, I totally forgot about WIAW and neglected to take a single picture. I did get to watch the New Girl though and it is quickly becoming one of my fave shows!

I am still feeling kind of blah and tired, but I have a few awesome things to look forward to in the next few days:

1. Going to the swim meet to cheer on my friends, roommate, teammates, etc. Plus the boy is coming with me as well as my little 4th grade friend!

2. Jack’s Mannequin concert Saturday. I am obsessed with them…if you didn’t know that already.

3. Heading home Sunday – Tuesday! YAY!

4. Mommy’s birthday and a baby shower Sunday! 🙂

Gotta get through today and subbing tomorrow and I will get a break.  There is a light! Thanks for bearing with me!

Something helping me get by:

Those who sow in tears will reap a harvest of joy; for though they may weep while going forth to plant their seed, if they persevere, they will undoubtedly return rejoicing—bringing their sheaves with them. (Psalms 126:5-6)

Anyone ever get into a funk like the one I have been in?

If so, what do you do to get out of it?

  1. I feel you. I don’t know why but I feel SO worn out. This weekend is fall break and I am really hoping it refreshes me!

  2. yep I think we all get in to funks some times…. some times it just helps to cry but i think talking to someone is always the best.

    if you get the job, we can be twinnies. :p good luck!

    what is an emotional support classroom?

    Aw 😦 I’m sorry for the lack of motivation. I’m pretty sure that we all fall into slumps like that sometimes, but the best thing to do is just count your blessings and focus on what makes you happy. 🙂

  4. I think we all go through those downs. Maybe our bodies (or minds) are telling us to chill a moment. And we usually shake it off pretty quickly as well. I hope your tummy feels better though. We have some nasty crud peeps are trying to pass around here at work too. I’m desperately trying not to catch any of it 😉

  5. I have definitely been in a funk before. I feel like there is usually something I need to take a break from or change, whether it be changing up my exercise routine, my sleeping habits, or just what I’m doing. So jealous that you’re going to a Jack’s Mannequin concert! I haven’t been to a concert in forever.

  6. Oh girl, I was definitely in a funk yesterday. Until last night when my husband made me laugh… and once I started I couldn’t stop. I laughed so hard that he started laughing and we couldn’t stop. I think we laughed for a good 20 minutes… it was wonderful. 🙂

  7. i totally know what you mean about being in a funk. not fun stuff
    😦 i hope things start to look up!

  8. I have definitely, definitely felt this way before. In fact, I feel like I have been in a funk the past couple weeks. Just tired and want to chill—mainly because I know that I just need to chill. Sometimes just talking a walk by the water for me really helps. I love being outside and quiet for a bit to just ‘detox’ and really think about my feelings.

  9. AWe. It’s been a long week for a lot of people. I hope everything clears up during the weekend. You can always come to my swim meets. 😉 Although we don’t have any remotely close to you. #sadday

    Sorry about being in a funk, I definitely get those from time to time and honestly is seems like letting a good cry out it always necessary! Hang in there girlie and keep your head up even through emotional funky days! 😉

    Weird, I just posted about how I have been anxious lately and have not been myself. Sometimes I think we just have to make ourselves the priority and do whatever makes us happy! That is my focus this week. Hope you feel better soon!
