Patience! Diligence!

October 23, 2013

In which I did a bunch of things in the last 3 months that I had been putting off for a while:

1. I had lunch with Elias waaaaay back in August and we caught up over a ton of Korean food. I haven’t been very good about meeting up with friends and it had been a long time since we last saw each other, but as always, it was easy to pick up right where we left off. SCANDALOUS CONVERSATION FOR HOURS ♡

2. Had all 4 of my wisdom teeth pulled and it was a rather miserable experience.

3. I picked up swimming this summer!!! Or rather, resumed swimming after not doing so regularly since I was in high school. It was exhausting the first two weeks and I could barely do a lap without wanting to keel over, but it became a lot easier the more I did it (like all things right?). It’s taking a lot of self-motivation and determination to continue with it since I go in at 6AM and it’s really a struggle keeping myself from crawling back into bed. I fell back into bad habits this month when the pool was closed for cleaning, and I could feel my health getting weird so I really have to push through with starting again this week now that the pool has re-opened. It’s going to be such a test when winter rolls around. Check this membership out! Full access to all the rec centers in NYC for $25 if you’re 18 – 24 years of age. It’s a great opportunity and so much cheaper than a gym membership.

4. Working on my eyebrows, working on my hair. I’m trying to get over the heebie jeebies that plucking gives me so it’s a slow journey, but it’s happening!! I also officially gave up on heat styling and trying to learn how to manage/love/baby my natural hair.

5. Job apps. haha. sigh.

6. Read more books, watched more movies, listened to more music (‘High Society’ – summer mix & “It’s you, entire” – part 1 of a series of songs about love)

    YEAH GURL YEAH @ this whole post.

    Swimming seems like such a wonderful activity to get into! I live in the land of the eternal summer (it was 92F today… IT IS THE END OF OCTOBER) and I feel like it’s such a suitable thing to do.
