Guess who won another giveaway!
The answer is me, if you missed that.
Thanks, Kelley! I’ve been dying to try Nuun, because it may be a good solution the next time I’m at a race where the sports drink tastes like pee. I can’t wait to have a long enough race to try it out! Anyone ever used Nuun? Tell me what you think!
I really do have a bunch of blog posts planned out, I just have to get around to it. I have a feeling I’m going to have quite a bit to do as far as work for the next few weeks, but I want to recap my Sunday race (another PR!) and finish the survey Kara sent me. I am not ashamed to admit that I drank way too much wine at book club last night and was not up to drafting any posts. It was our first book club and at my house. I was worried it would be awkward because everyone there knew me, but not everyone knew each other. I should have know better because everyone seemed to have a great time (I know I did) and I have WAY too much food left over!
We read “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.” I didn’t actually like it, but for some reason I’m reading the second one. The books are really gritty and make me sad, but I can’t stop reading them. I also did this with the Twilight books and the tv shows Nip/Tuck and Heroes. I cannot explain my love of a good train wreck. I think the real problem with the book is that there isn’t much to discuss without making some people really uncomfortable. There’s a lot of sexual violence in the book and I know it brought up some unpleasant memories for a lot of people, including me.
On an unrelated note, Abby asked why I switched from history to biology in college. I’d actually flirted with pre-medicine as I changed to a history major, but an amazing professor in the history department introduced me to the study of history of medicine and I was hooked…until I had to write my senior thesis. Turns out I like to read about history in my spare time (and I can recite a surprising amount of random facts), but when it comes to researching it, it just wasn’t my bag. I also felt like the job opportunities weren’t there and I didn’t want to spend 10 years on a PhD. I went back to pre-med/biology because I knew I loved learning about diseases. Turns out I belong in med school like a cat belongs in a bath, so I dropped the pre-med and went for the PhD. Also turns out I just hate research period. Lessons learned.
Can I admit I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up? I have yet to hold a job I love that makes me excited to get out of bed in the morning. Can I get a job that involves running and watch lots of tv? What’s your job? Do you love it? Would you recommend your career?
