Wow. I MIGHT be in a little over my head. I'm taking a graduate-level course this semester, Choral Literature. It's stressing me out. I'm not really too familiar with a lot of choral repertoire, so for the take home quizzes and stuff I kind of feel like I'm shooting blindly and randomly into the woods hoping I'll hit a deer. But I have to do this class. I have to finish, or else I don't graduate. So I'll manage somehow.
Also, I've been walking A LOT lately. Like when I'm bored in the afternoons/evenings with nothing to do (correction: nothing that I care to do, such as homework), I'll go on a walk. Also, I've been walking to school a lot lately, which is almost 2 miles. My size 10 pants are starting to fit a lot looser (I have to wear a belt, even!), although I don't think that I'm small enough yet to go back to my size 8 pants. Okay, you may say, "But Leah, size 10 isn't big at all!" I know. But it's not my best. I was a size 8 for a long time before I gained weight over the summer. I know I can be a size 8. So that's what I'm striving for. Also, my senior recital dress is a size 8. So if I don't fit in it, I'll look BAD.
While I'm on the note of fulfilling semester goals (re: my post a few weeks ago regarding things I wanted to accomplish this semester), my acne is starting to clear up. Huzzah! I think it was so bad because:
A) I wasn't drinking nearly enough water as I should have been. I've been better about this lately.
B) My stress level was slightly higher, and has since gone down a little. Or maybe I'm just getting better about dealing with it. I don't know.
C) For a while after I got back to school, my hormones were going all insane and stuff because all of a sudden I was living with 3 other girls. I think they're starting to adjust now.
D) (more of a sub-point of A) I'm eating a lot healthier than I was this summer.
E) (also mor of a sub-point of A) I'm a lot more physically active than I was over the summer.
So overall, my self-esteem is starting to up a little bit. I do have my moments, but who doesn't?
Oh, annoying story. So, I get in my car to go to church this morning, and it doesn't start. The battery is dead. So by the time AAA gets someone out to my house to jump it, it's 10am. Church is at 10:15 out in Woodridge, 40 minutes away. So...there goes church this morning. And on top of it, the guy didn't even have a new battery to put in my car, like AAA said they would. The battery truck doesn't go out on the weekends. So I have to wait until tomorrow to call AAA AGAIN so they can send ANOTHER PERSON out to my house to replace the battery. Which means that I either have to ride my bike to school tomorrow at 6:30am (I'm not a fan of this option. Riding my bike makes me more tired than I care to be. Also sweaty. I don't like being sweaty all day.) OR get up WAY before the butt-crack of dawn so I can leave my apartment at 6am to walk to school to be at work by 7am. (I like walking infinitely better than riding my bike, but I'm not a fan of getting up that early.) Eff. Whatevs. I'm still not sure what I'll do. I probably won't decide until right before I go to bed.
Oh, on top of the car thing, my computer isn't working. None of the programs will run. I took it to cougarnet today. Hopefully they can fix it. If not, I might be screwed.
