Alias Katie.

I would consider myself a fairly patient person, but lately I have been loosing my mind patience with one of my classmates.  For the sake of privacy, we’ll call call her Katie.  Honestly speaking, Katie is super sweet and innocent–but, well…she’s also incredibly frustrating to talk to.  Allow me to give you an example of a phone conversation we had a couple of days ago:

Phone rings….

Me: Hi Katie

Katie: Hi Laura, its Katie.

Me: Yes, Katie I know.  How are you?

Katie: Hello??

Me: Hi Katie its Laura!

Katie: Oh, Hi Laura, It’s Katie.

Me: Hi, what’s up?

Katie: Umm. Well.  Oh, wait. I um forgot.

Me: Oh, ok. Do you want to call me back when you remember?

Katie: No, hold on…..ummmm……hello?? Laura??

Me: Yes.

Katie: Oh hey, ok yea so you know that email that we got. Ummm, well… wait what? What did I just say?

I am not even exaggerating in the slightest with this telephone conversation.  I don’t want to annoy you with the rest of it, but I am sure you could only image how it continued.  What do I do with this girl?? I can’t be rude to her, it’s just not my style.  But I wanted to jump through the phone and shake her!! I just wanted her to speak what she was thinking.  Talking to her in person results in a similar conversation, but she usually gets distracted and the conversation comes to quick end.

I guess I just have to hope that either her communication skills improve or that I become more patient. Oh, Katie.

UPDATED: A messy home makes me anxious!!

Our place is my version of a DISASTER!!! I feel like EVERY room is a mess. I’m pretty sure that a normal person would walk in here and laugh at me and tell me I’m crazy, because really it’s not that bad.  So, I’m a little OCD, what’s the big deal?  Sure I’m having a little trouble breathing as I walk from one room to another making lists of all things I need to do.  And yes, I am pacing back and forth as I make sure that my list of things to do is complete before I can start, because if I start cleaning before I complete my list it might throw everything off.  Okay, so maybe I am a little more than a little OCD, but thats okay…I accept this flaw of mine and well, there’s nothing I can do about it.  Time to clean. Such an exciting thought.

UPDATE: Training for a 5k…

This week I started week 4 of training! So far, so good!! I am so surprised at myself, I can’t believe I am still on track.  (I am probably jinxing myself, so knock on wood). This weeks interval training consists of:

Run 3 min

Walk 90 sec

Run 5 min

Walk 2.5 min

Run 3 min

Walk 90 sec

Run 5 min

I am struggling a little during the last 5 min run, I just can’t seem to maintain my breathing very well.  I am hoping today’s run is a little better and I am able to maintain a good pace the entire time.  One thing that I am noticing is achey legs.  My muscles aren’t necessarily sore, but at the end of some days my legs hurt and sharp pains are running though them.  I usually take advil on nights like those, but is that normal?  Will my body eventually adjust to all this running?  I sure hope so! Anyways, keep cheering me on :)!

Admitting I have a problem.

Hi, my name is Laura and I am addicted to trashy television shows.

Seriously, I have a problem.  It’s been a ridiculously long day and all I really want to do is lay in bed and watch all the episodes of the The Bachelor that I have missed this season. I am pretty much addicted to reality TV – classy, trashy…you name it, I’ll watch it.  Don’t ask me why, I have no idea.  Recently I have watched:

– Mama’s Boys

– Rock of Love Bus

– Celebrity Rehab

– The Bachelor

Pretty embarrassing, I know.  I am not proud of this unfortunate addiction, but I don’t know how to stop!!! It’s not like these shows make me laugh,  cry or inspire me by any means… but I can’t go one week without my regular fix of reality tv.  You know what though, it’s not like I am addicted to anything else that I am not proud of (oh, except for trashy magazines like Life & Style – notice a trend?) so maybe it is okay to have this one addiction.  Right?

Well, admitting I have a problem is the first step to recovery, or so they say.  Now that I have pubilicly admitted it, I am going to go watch another episode of The Bachelor…
