I forgot to post this earlier. I got residency for tuition purposes at ASU :) So I am finally recognized by the school as a person who is likely to stick around. I mean…I have a house here, I really don’t think I’m leaving just out of the blue.
So! I get reimbursed for the extra I paid last semester, so I can pay back my loan a little quicker. And things will be cheaper from now on.
The only problem now: I want to take my comps in July, and they are saying I need to register for summer if I want to do that. I need to register for a single credit, which costs nearly 700$. The credit is “research” which I am doing regardless, and I will be paying in order to be tortured basically. Guh! Why are they so ridiculous? Just let me take this exam!
2 miles flat in 30 min with insane Dobby trying to murder me and Boyfriend getting into the groove of running. My shoulders are swollen from Dobby pulling so much (he is excited by new things, boyfriend is newly running w us, ergo insanity).
Arms and chest at the gym today. Other than that, I will be writing and reading (I’m going to try for 6 hours total) and my cardiologist appointment. Woo!
You won’t be stressing this summer if you’re sipping on this tasty glass of general badassery. The antioxidant loaded in theses blackberries will make sure free radicals aren’t fucking up your day. And the bourbon? YOU EARNED THAT SHIT.
BLACKBERRY BOURBON FIZZ
5 ice cubes
1 shot of bourbon
¾ cup cold ginger ale (none of that high fructose corn syrup, aspartame nonsense either. Get good shit that has fucking ginger root as an ingredient)
¼ cup cold club soda (optional)
Put the blackberries in the bottom of a tall glass and mash them around with a spoon. Keep some big chunks because it looks cool. Add the ice and then the bourbon, ginger ale, and club soda. I like adding club soda because it keeps it tasting refreshing as fuck but you can save some cash and just add more ginger ale. Garnish with fresh basil if you are trying to impress somebody.
Serves 1 but invite a fucking friend, no need to drink alone
We made this for our friend Dara over at Cosmo.com
Ugh, all my favorite things.
Took my walk tonight with Dobby and Boyfriend and managed to spend the entire 45 min talking about phosphorylated tau. I might be more prepared for this exam than I thought I was.
This afternoon, I did legs/back with squats (115lbs 5x5), deadlifts (110, 5x5), Romanian deadlifts (90, 5x5), goblet squats (20, 15x3), decline sit ups (12.5, 10x5), and reverse flyes (12.5, 5x5). Tomorrow I run in the morning w Dobby and Boyfriend! Boyfriend apparently has started exercising again, since he isn’t at school constantly now.

My bad it’s so hard to reply to this on my phone. Uh we did the Westworld indoor course. It looks like it could have been an old home depo in a sketchy neighborhood. I’ll let you know next time we come down to paintball!
That’s the one we go to, also! Definitely let me know, I would love to kick ass and take names w you! :)
Okay. So I got invited by a coworker to go to a birthday party a couple weeks ago, and I bailed because my anxiety said nobody would like me and it all made me feel so awful I went to bed at like 8pm so I wouldn’t have to go.
Same coworker invited me to go out tonight (she invited me yesterday) and I told boyfriend and he is MAKING me go which is very sweet because I really should. So I showered, I put on my cute dress, I’m drinking coffee so I can stay awake, and I’m telling myself that people will like me, damnit.
