Summer Update

I have three minutes before midnight, so to keep up the "every two days" posting thing, here's a quick update of my life this summer, as it is officially summer now that the Summer Solstice has passed. Summer is truly in full swing, as I am now covered in bug bites. I started work this week with the Speech and Debate program. It is now 11:59 so I'm hitting publish before it turns into Friday. I'm managing the third grade workshops and helping to reorganize H7a again, clearing out the old things, putting up all the award plaques that we've earned this year, and later, recreating the middle school organization system. I've been having a lot of fun, but it's also been quite tiring, as I have to be at Leland by 8:30AM to set up the workshops.

On Mondays and Thursdays, WW and I have been going to yoga, which has been an interesting experience. I know most people think that yoga is very relaxing and not real exercise, but this is the first organized exercise that I've done since I stopped swimming at the end of the year, and it is a real challenge. I've tried Hatha yoga, which is a more slow, guided yoga, and Tone yoga, which is meant to tone your muscles. It was incredibly hot today, which actually made me glad that I couldn't find my tank top to wear over the sports bra, because I was sweating like a pig. I also had so much difficulty with the exercises, and I was trembling the whole time, but I feel like it'll be worth it at the end of the summer when I'm fit and ready for college. I'm working on trying to get a solid six-pack back on, so I can be one of those health and fitness blogs in college, where I Instagram all the quinoa and kale I eat, and take pictures of workout gear (which I have a slight obsession with at the moment). But in the meantime, I'm still struggling through basic exercise. Hopefully it'll help with my skin problems, because my pores are still ridiculously clogged.

On the contrary, as much as I say I'm going to be exercising and working and being productive, I've also somehow found myself more heavily invested in social media as well. I've created two new side blogs on Tumblr: "cakeandrendezvous" for aesthetic blogging and original writing (and quotes and music maybe), and "officialbuddhism" which I haven't figured out what I wanted to use for yet, but it sounded cool, so I guess I'm just hoarding it for now. I also want to revamp this blog some more, but with work and everything, I don't have much time (it's interesting how I always have so many things I want to do when I'm busy, but nothing to do when I'm bored). The last few days have flown by and I've been pretty happy about how it's been going. I guess that's it for now, summer's been pretty great, and I hope you're doing well too! ◊
