I can apparently run about a 15/16 minute mile. I remember in grade school, during gym when we had to run a mile, I was always the last one to finish, OR I remember a couple times where the gym teacher took pity on me and didn’t make me finish the last laps.
And I added another 1.83 miles to my tracker! I’ve fallen behind a bit (I should be closer to 20 miles) but oh well! I’m still getting into the hang of being back at school and I haven’t gone to the gym as much as I would like.
School itself has been nice. I do my work-study at the library, and I sorta forget over winter break how much squatting, bending, and heavy lifting it entails XD Seriously though, some of our books are HUGE and I always grab at least 5-7 of the big books when I’m shelving.
I think I’m also definitely starting to see a difference in the way my clothes fit. I was almost certainly wearing clothes that were too small because I didn’t want to admit to myself that I had gained weight or anything. Now everything fits really well, and some things are even loose! My go-to skinny jeans are for sure looser than ever before.
I just keep thinking about how I was a year ago and just how much I have changed. I am so much happier than I can ever remember being. I like myself- which is not something I ever thought I would say and actually mean. I have actual friends. I like all my teachers (please, there are no ‘professors’ in art school) and my classes. I have friends. I’m getting along with my roommates a lot better than last year or even last semester. Everything is going so well for me right now, and it’s just really great to be able to say that.
Haha this ended up being a lot longer than I intended. I have class again at 7 so I’m gonna go grab something to eat. Be happy, be healthy, folks!
