NEDA walk and Cherry Blossoms

Posted Apr 09 2013 12:06am

This weekend was a busy one for me. Not only am I computerless, as I mentioned in my last post, I’m also swamped with work. I’ve spent more time in the library this past week than I have all year and while it is nice to get out and be more social at school, I’m also really looking forward to having a computer so I can do some homework (and blogging!) from the comfort of my couch. Hopefully it will be back in the next day or two. Work with me, Apple. I can only do so much with an iPhone and a really old Dell that takes 45 minutes to turn on. Not even joking.

I love these games. I have never played soccer in my life nor do I know how to play but I really enjoy it. I call myself the MVP-there are usually not enough girls to play so if I’m not there, we’re in trouble-even though I’m by far the worst one on the team and my only job is to stand there and get in the other team’s way. It’s pretty successful since we’re actually pretty good.

Friday night I spent 5 hours in the library working on a chemistry presentation- yes, I’m that girl. I usually boycot homework on the weekends until Sunday nights but I knew that the rest of the weekend was going to be crazy.

Saturday was the track meet that didn’t go very well. While it’s upsetting, I am able to bounce back pretty quickly from these things. However, I also know that I’m the type of person that needs a good race (or good test grade) to boost my confidence. Once I’ve had a crappy race, my confidence in my ability plummets and I have a hard time not getting really anxious for the next one. That’s a common pattern I’ve noticed this season that I’m really trying to change.

Saturday night I was planning on going out but between being exhausted, swamped with work, and not a whole lot going on, I ended up hanging out with my roommate reading for analytical while she watched Hunger Games. I’m destined to be a chem nerd forever at this rate.

Sunday was the big day for the weekend. Not only was it gorgeous outside, I spent the day in DC with Christine. We drove down at 8:30 that morning for the National Eating Disorders Association walk. I can’t say I learned a lot from it or felt truly “inspired” by it but I enjoyed getting out of Baltimore for the day, going for a walk, and doing something for a cause I am passionate about. There was a lot of information out about treatment, statistics, and support and the walk was held on the national mall, just over a mile long.

Christine really had to use the bathroom right before it started so we ran around like madpeople trying to find one. Luckily the Cherry Blossom race was right next to the walk. Have you ever seen so many porta potties in one place? This was row 1 of FOUR.

Afterwards my stomach was screaming for food ironically so we stopped at a little cafe for lunch on our way to find the Cherry Blossoms. We didn’t exactly get there but it was a nice day for a walk and I definitely have no complaints. Eating a bigger than normal lunch did cause me some hesitation at first but I went with it. I was slightly uncomfortable with the full feeling after I finished my wrap but it’s one of the challenges I’ve been working on lately and I know I’ve come a long way with it.

I had a big presentation for my chemistry seminar Monday morning so I spent most of the weekend on that so that I can focus on other things this week. And start a new TV series tradition with my roommate since we’re having PLL withdrawals. We’re thinking Gilmore Girls. A classic.

 Have you ever participated in a walk?
