week in review: progress

Linking up with Meghan over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets, as an excuse for my rambling…

This week, I:

-only managed to read one book, Paula Poundstone’s The Totally Unscientific Study of the Search for Human Happinness. An interesting read, just wasn’t what I expected. But I liked it.

-survived the first week of my new class, Leadership Theory in Communication. I have a paper due in 2 1/2 weeks, so that’ll be on the agenda this week for sure. I also got my final grade from my last class, and managed to pull an 87 average…2 whole points higher than the cut-off for academic probation. (Probably would have pulled an A if 1) the prof had actually graded the extra points assignment he gave us and 2) the two reporters who said they’d answer my questions actually had. But that’s okay. I can live with a B…once.)

-worked 3 1/2 days at the day job…and successfully didn’t throat chop anyone (despite immense provocation).

-got in all my workouts for the week! Including a scenic outdoor run:

-enjoyed this


and also this


Can we talk about Andy’s Frozen Custard for a sec? There are no words to describe how good this stuff is. This is the Cherry Bash Concrete, and it is TO DIE FOR! Also, I may have had one last week, too. It is SUCH a good thing that the closest Andy’s is an hour from me…

-listened to Christine Caine speak at my church. She’s really good, even if I don’t agree with her political views.

-finally, FINALLY—after a year—got everything spelled out with a special someone in my life. Now we are BOTH on the SAME page. Pro tip:  when dating someone from a totally different culture, be very sure you both have a clear understanding of each other. It’ll save you some heartache and tears. True story.

And that’s it for me.

  1. I’m intrigued and fascinated about the little clue from your dating life. I’d love to hear more.

    I think a B is awesome and would happily take it.

    I have some stickers for more planner that say “Hooray, I didn’t harm anyone today.” They’d be perfect for you. 🙂

    1. You’re right: those stickers are perfect for me! I would be more happy about a B if I didn’t know I could’ve made higher–if the two journalists who said they’d answer my questions actually HAD answered them. As for my dating life…I’ve been dating possibly the MOST reserved/private man on the planet for over two years, so I’m used to NOT talking about it…but I think I’ll throw some bits and pieces in occasionally. Thanks for reading!

    1. I had never heard of frozen custard either..and I’m not sure how I lived my life without it! If you get the chance, definitely try it! Thanks for commenting.
