Since summer started, I have been running around like crazy feeling like I can never get anything done. I got back from Portland (from my friend's wedding) this afternoon, and hit the ground running. I'm actually debating these next two days if I should really begin my second job as planned (I've been asked to come back to the Starbucks I worked out before law school) but I've realized it may all be just too much. With a clerkship, and a boyfriend out of state....I may need to re-prioritize what I do outside of the clerkship. (which is also why I had to temporarily discontinue Tute Tuesdays!!)
While I am ranting, I wanted to share a few more of those random interesting facts about being me!
I grew up in a weight watchers household, so my mind converts all food to "points". I try to be aware of what I'm eating, and my parents brought us up to be very aware of healthy foods. But I cannot look at a crispy creme donut without converting it to how many points it would be, and how many pretzels I could eat instead.
I don't dye my hair...often. I've highlighted it once in law school, and used to dye it off and on. I was a true blonde until my hair started getting dark in high school. Now the muted dirty blonde look is what I have. The good thing, my leg hair is still blonde....which means I shave MUCH less often than I should.
I don't drink (alcohol that is). I've actually never had alcohol. Yes, I am 24 so it is legal. No, I do not have any problem with anyone else drinking. I don't think it is unbiblical to drink, I just don't do it. I'm not opposed for others to drink, and I don't care either way if you do it around me. Most of my friends do, and I've been out with them, I really have no issue with it. I just decided its not for me. It is odd at times, being in a law school where every social event revolves around it. Teachers take us out for beer, your employer very well may take you to a bar after work or an interview, and the school brings it in for our social events, ("open bar" is the key phrase for getting people to attend). But other than the few awkward moments I've had, I'm sure it is the right decision for me!
I'll eat about anything...but I don't eat celery. I know it is healthy...I've tried to like it so many times. But no, I cannot eat the stuff unless it is cooked in a stew. I really do eat practically everything. Oh, except for gyros. I really think those are pretty awful.
If you're a parent, and looking for a good way to discipline your children...you're going to love this next one. When I got in trouble as a kid (which was QUITE often) my punishment was to run up and down the stairs. The worst part, up and down counted as 1 time. I received a punishment of 200 on multiple occasion, and of course, once argued my way up to 400 (I never did learn to keep my mouth shut). Surprisingly, I was still a chubby kid. However, I'm still not sure if treating your children that exercise is punishment is the best idea (yes mom and dad...I called you out on that) but my sister and I both exercise regularly a few times a week...so it couldn't have scared us that badly.
