OCTOBER IS SO GOOD
October is such a wonderful month. Especially this October. I’d imagine in other areas, October isn’t quite this wonderful, but here the weather is fantastic – some days the weather feels like fall. Others, like today, there’s a high of 79 and I get to wear shorts.
Reasons why this October is especially awesome:
1. Found out I get to study abroad in SCOTLAND next semester!!! 😀
2. Arctic Monkeys concert this Wednesday
3. Fall break – going to Montreal to see two of my friends
4. Humans vs. Zombies starting October 24th
5. State Fair next weekend
I’m sooo excited for all these things. I don’t even know which is most exciting because they’re all completely awesome.
Thirty day challenge: how comfortable I am with my body.
I’d like to think I’m pretty comfortable with it. I go to the gym a few days a week and I walk a lot with classes. Tonight I’m getting exercise in the form of Quidditch! I’ve never played before and I’m super pumped. My friend Steven plays and so Jack and I are going to play with him tonight. I’m pretty thin – I wouldn’t call myself skinny (there’s a difference in my mind) and I’m happy with it. Of course, though, I’m a 19-year-old girl and it is required that I sometimes feel completely upset with my image. Realistically, however, I know I’m in decent shape, especially considering all the crap I eat.
I could probably have the exact body I wanted if I gave up junk food, but I’m happier this way. There’s a happy medium, I think, between sacrificing the small joys of occasional laziness and sweets and completely succumbing to gluttony and sleuth. I like to think I’ve found it.
