Loving this runner’s high I’ve been on all week. I keep replaying last weekend over and over in my head and reminiscing about how awesome it was. I’ve also been researching future half marathons to sign up for early next year. I do have a 10K planned for November, but that’s about it. Time to fill up my race calendar!
Loathing that it’s still so warm and dry in Sacramento lately even though it’s officially fall. Even when I went to the Bay Area last weekend, it was pretty warm. It’s like Mother Nature refuses to acknowledge the fact that there’s a drought in California and we need rain. RUDE.
Watching nothing at the moment. Waiting for the last season of Glee to start up this fall. I do want to see Gone Girl in the theaters, but I’d like to read the book first. Not sure when I’ll have time to do that, so I might just skip the book for now and see the movie first.
Feeling kind of relieved that my half marathon is over. Don’t get me wrong, it was an amazing experience. But now that it’s over, I can focus my attention on other things in my life, like finding a new job and putting our apartment back together (it’s still a mess from replacing some of our furniture and reorganizing these last few weeks). Chris and I also want to start seriously searching for a pug to adopt; we’ve been wanting to get a dog for a while now, so it’s time to make it happen.
Planning for Halloween. Our friends invited me and Chris to a Halloween party happening in Downtown Sacramento, so that’s what we’ll be doing. I’m looking forward to actually doing something for Halloween this year because last year, Chris was sick, and the year before that, I had to work. As for my costume, I was going to be a panda bear, but instead, I’m just going to recycle an old costume in my costume box. Gotta save that money!
Working on applying for full-time jobs again. I applied for one last week that I actually qualify for, so hopefully I at least get an interview. I’m going to try to get some more job apps done over the weekend. I’m hopeful I can find something these next two months because during the holidays, most people tend to take a break from job-searching. Maybe this will give me an advantage during my job search and I’ll start 2015 with a full-time job.
Wishing cancer would stop affecting my family. I just found out that my cousins’ dad (formerly my uncle before he and my aunt got divorced) just found out he has stage 4 prostate cancer. I couldn’t believe it when I found out, and immediately felt for my cousins since I lost my mom to cancer. Stage 4 cancer is serious; I don’t even know if there’s anything he can do at this point but start chemo and hope for a miracle. Fucking cancer.
Looking forward to celebrating my and Chris’ 2-year wedding anniversary this Sunday. We actually don’t have anything super exciting planned since we are still recovering from spending a lot of money on our New York trip and buying some new furniture for our apartment. We did go out to a nice dinner at our favorite San Francisco restaurant last Sunday night. (This restaurant also happens to be the restaurant where we had our wedding reception.) As for this Sunday, we just plan to go out to brunch, carve pumpkins for Halloween, order a pizza, and watch movies. Should be a nice, low-key anniversary celebration with my love.
