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 day. And 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 ), 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?
