Not going to lie, I really haven’t really been feeling the whole electronic world (blogging, Twitter, Facebook, etc.) lately. For lack of a better word, I’m in a “funk”.
My eating has improved this week, as I knew it would as my hormones aren’t all crazy anymore. I even went out to lunch with my dad the other day to Noodles & Co. in between my classes and work. I feel bad because, since I live with my mom and just have a stronger relationship with my mom in general, I sort of “forget” about my dad. We only talk maybe once a week and we see each other maybe once or twice a month. I feel like my sister, since she lives so far away from us. I’ll be leaving the state (hopefully) in two years and I don’t know how often I’ll be seeing my family after that since I don’t have any plans to work in Michigan after I pass the RD exam.
Back to my “funk”. The other day, I received an e-mail that said that the paper that I wrote (the 13-page research one that I worked for so long on) was rejected and that I would not be getting my honors credit for the class. My heart immediately sank. I was not given any details or information on why I was rejected, just that I was. I’m going to try and fight this, but it’s going to be a lengthy process that I’m not at all looking forward to. But, if it weren’t for the fact that I worked my butt off for that paper and was never given any feedback as I was writing the paper to make me feel that it was not an excellent paper, then I would not be bothering with the appeals process. I’m only at step one right now, and this may have to be brought to a few higher-up faculty members, but I really do think that I deserve my credit. I’ve spoken with other Honors College members and the system is supposed to be set up so that this sort of thing doesn’t happen.
Workouts are becoming second-nature to me. Part of my everyday life and schedule now. I feel a little weird only running 3 days a week now, like I barely run at all, but I know that in the long run (pardon the pun) that I really should be cross-training and that it will help me overall. When I’m stressed out I’ve been following the following pattern: cry my eyes out, talk to someone about it, have a good workout, and then maybe cozy up with some spoonfuls of nut butter. Although, since Wednesday I’ve been having some tightness (not pain) on the inner side of my right knee. I have no idea what it is, and it doesn’t seem to be a problem when I’m walking or running. I only really feel the tightness if I’m sitting down or just stood up from a seated position. I’m hoping it’s nothing, but I really don’t know what it is or what caused it.
And now to wrap this post up with some recent food pics:
Now I’m off to the health food store to pick up some items for a special someone in UK and then get myself ready for my Skype date tonight! I don’t care if they can’t smell me, I want to be fresh and clean, haha.
Any ideas on what my leg pain is all about?
What do you do when you get into a “funk”?
