A new semester has started and that has brought along with it interesting changes. My biggest announcement is that I was accepted into a new graduate program starting this coming Fall! I will remain here in Austin, but simply take different classes, making it the easiest Big Transition of my entire life! I also found out I can get a Masters in my previous area, meaning all the classes I have taken will be twice as valuable to me, as they also transfer over to my new Phd program. It's been great getting all the positive feedback about this jump, and I am anxious for Fall to start, even if it means I will be a first year student once more.
(Casual reminder if you are a student and ever want to talk about grad school, I'm here for yooou.)
Other than that, life has been kinda slow. I've discovered the wonder that is the indoor track and started running again. My miles are slowly creeping under the 11 minute mark, which is a GREAT motivator to not let myself give it up again. True to form, I tried to run multiple days in a row and my ankles got all weird, so I decided today might be a Zumba day instead. I will say, it is kind of a bummer when I don't feel winded but still have to stop because my ankles start seizing up as I run, even if I stretch. With the conclusion of Buff Buddies, I have noticed my waist-line become a bit more concave instead of convex, which better be because I cut out bread because I miss it SO MUCH. AUGH.
I've been a bit homesick lately, mainly because my close friend went on a big trip abroad and deleted all social media. I didn't realize how vital those monthly phone calls and daily snapchats were until they were gone. His trip is going to be a couple months, so I'm not really looking forward to it. Luckily, I had a friend this weekend who welcomed the opportunity to hole-up together in a coffee shop and do work, thus saving me from sitting alone in my apartment all sad 'n' stuff. I'm also excited to be totally free during Spring Break, so I'm just saying yes to any new experience that comes my way.
This is kinda long, so I'll cut it here. I hope you have a lovely day! Here's to sunnier skies and...something else nice. I dunno.
