i am infamous for taking on a million and one things…and somehow managing to pull them off by the skin of my teeth. usually to the detriment of my sleep schedule and my wallet (damn you, necessary daily coffee run!).
we are barely one month into the semester, and i’m already feeling the heat. coursework, my teaching assignments, my fellowship, and my group fitness classes…plus training for the derb (yes, i’ve nicknamed the derby half marathon “the derb”) and falling faster and harder in love with lifting. i’m going to indiana a week from today to give a paper, and the damn thing isn’t even finished.
i have a genuine love for everything i do (except maybe teaching cycling…that, i’m not so in love with), and i need to keep reminding myself how lucky i am to have so much fun “working.”
but on days like today, when i think, ‘oh i should call dad back, he called…tuesday?! it’s been three days already?!’ and then realize that i’m going at breakneck speed over here.
i like to set little goals and deadlines for myself. right now, i just need to make it to and through this conference in indy. after that, i’ll be pushing through until spring break and the railrunner. along the way i want my 200# deadlift, a visit to my hairdresser, and one gratuitous shopping trip to tj maxx/marshall’s to look for some fitness gear. and ice cream. one day, i would like to find time to go to orange leaf and get some damn froyo.
until then i shall drink coffee and look terrified.
