2 miles + walking around + 2 miles = 4 miles untimed. Ran to Target/Jamba Juice/etc. shopping complex and back. Not a fun run because I kept having to stop and look at my map and stop at crosswalks. Plus, it sucked running back in the dark because there were a buttload of potholes and I couldn’t even see where I was running. Wouldn’t do it again. Wasn’t in the mood to run...
me: What were Charles V four problems?
Mari: The French, the Turks, German princes, and the papacy. Ugh, I hate that word.
me: Why, 'cause it sounds like Pap smear?
unloading (not that way)
A few hours or so, I called my mom to ask her what she wanted for Mother’s Day. She suggested some black flats, a belt, and coconut body wash. All was fine in our conversation until she asked me how I was and much to my surprise, I totally unloaded on her. I knew I was stressed but oh my God, she pretty much saw an existential crisis happening right before her eyes. I vented about everything...
being honest with myself
If I am being completely honest with myself, I really don’t want to stay in L.A. during the summer. Hawaii in the summer is home more than me “real home” is and not being there would suck. At the same time, I don’t feel like I deserve to be there since now that I’m in college, I can’t expect to spend two months on one of the most beautiful islands in the world. ...
Ten Things Men Can Do To Prevent Gender Violence →
(From suzyxisntreal.) Because your freedom, men, is intertwined with ours. Until we as a world realize that gender violence isn’t a “women’s issue” but rather an issue facing all humanity, we’ll never be able to move toward a just and equitable world.
"Groping, Sexual Assault Policies and the... →
(From suzyxisntreal.) “In the United States, the cultural narrative surrounding a college student’s sexual experience tends to by extremely hypersexualized. It’s not just that undergraduates are assumed to be promiscuous—it’s also that the sexuality of college students is presented as ‘out of control’ and ‘gone wild.’ The subtext here is that when people choose to...

(From genderconfusion.) Ridiculous.
Dear Tumblverse, I just finished taking my second midterm this morning. Hooray for 8:00 a.m.’s! I got four hours of sleep before my MedAnthro one yesterday and five hours of sleep before this History midterm so…woo! I’m kinda loopy and exhausted but as per usual, I still have paper and group project deadlines so I can’t completely jump onto my bed just yet. I do believe...

Perfect time for a Dwight quote: “If I could menstruate I wouldn’t have to deal with idiotic calendars anymore. I’d just be able to count down from my previous cycle. Plus I’d be more in tune to the moon and the tides.”
touch and be touched
So today in my Online Journalism class, my professor waxed poetic about how great my friend and my photos were.* He noted that close-up headshot-y pictures are so much more meaningful than full-body ones that can seem rather impersonal. He said that he understands most people have their own personal space and that comfort zones vary in size. Then he cited a study that found that Caucasians tended...
FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS is coming back!
This morning I woke up at 5:00 a.m. to start studying for my MedAnthro midterm at 10:30. Yes, I realize how awfully well I procrastinated for it. At 8:55, I was tired of studying so I turned on the boob tube to catch just five minutes of whatever was show was playing on HGTV. Now, I pretty much always regret turning on the TV because 95% of the time, its a huge time-waster but today, no, today was...
40 minutes running + bathroom break + 62 minutes running = 9.15 miles in 102 minutes total. I am never running this much. Ever. Again. After 1.5 laps around the school, a sharp pain hit me in the gut and wouldn’t go away. On top of that, I needed to go to the bathroom STAT (“Stat means now!”) so I ran the rest of the lap as fast as I could and thankfully got to the bathroom on...

I'm a poor fool
A classmate of mine had her car broken into. The only thing the thieves stole was her backpack which had her notebook in it, meaning that she has no notes to study for our midterm in two days. Our teacher announced this at the beginning of class and asked if anyone with neat handwriting would like to share his/her notes. I volunteered because I was feeling nice and for some reason thought she only...
runner's log: Don't Stop the Beat 5K edition
3.1 miles untimed. I did it! I ran my first-ish 5K race! (First-ish because I walked a 5K earlier this year.) It was pretty fun and outrageously hot but I am proud of myself. I was really nervous beforehand so I’m glad I got it all out of my system. I don’t think I got anywhere near my usual 5K time because of the nervousness and heat but you know what? I DGAF. All I care about is how...

U Can't Touch This
Dad: If your shoes are too tight, you might get this thing called hammertoe. So if your toes start to feel really squished, you shouldn't run anymore.
