Today, I completely forgot to blog. There’s about an hour left to this day and I realized that I was so busy doing homework and working that I didn’t even think about my little space on the internet. Moral of the story: NaBloPoMo is NOT EASY to accomplish while in the middle of finals.
Here are a few tidbits from my weekend worth sharing in a short & sweet post:
1- I had severe caffeine withdrawal for three days while I tried really hard not to drink coffee. The first day was impossible to live through, but it got easier with time. After my third day I was feeling pretty good in terms of headache and fatigue, so I had a cup before work. I cut down on sugar and I didn’t have any more all day. Ideally, I’d like to cut my coffee intake to one cup a day, or every few days, so it’s something I’m still working on!
2- I got absolutely NO homework done in my three days off. I was too tired from caffeine withdrawal. That’s my excuse, and I’m sticking to it.
3- I drank a LOT of hot chocolate in 3 days. I feel like in terms of sugar, it was probably worse for me. But it definitely replaced coffee in terms of comfort and craving, just didn’t help with the withdrawal symptoms!
4- I got to spend a few quality hours with my nephew and I swear he’s just the cutest. I adore him!
Putting him to sleep… ❤
Me, my brother and my nephew who looks rather uncomfortable, but cute nonetheless!
5- I can hardly remember last time I read for fun, rather than for school. This weekend? I didn’t read AT all. I was not in the mood whatsoever, and I feel like that’s school’s fault. I really don’t like being forced into reading for class, it takes the fun out of it completely!
6- I’ve been meaning to enter this contest all week, but can’t think of which story to write about. I read the stories from past winners and they seem so well done, from women who traveled to far and distant lands, I’ve had some amazing vacations, but I just don’t know if it’s worth taking the time to write about a particular moment. I only have a few days left, but I’m still thinking about it!
7- My hairdresser came home from her vacation Saturday and I’m FINALLY getting my hair done tomorrow. I swear, my hair grows so fast it’s not even funny. I JUST got it done and it’s already too long to style.
8- I took two naps this weekend. I can’t even REMEMBER the last time I napped before then. And I’m still just so exhausted. How does that even happen?
9- I’m having major issues with the puppy across the street being mistreated. I basically can’t handle it anymore- it’s below zero outside and he’s being left outside for hours at a time. When my mom and I approached my neighbor about the situation, she said that the dog constantly *asks* to go out. No wonder, when he’s not outside he’s trapped in his tiny cage! It’s just so sad. I want to kidnap him.
10- I have so much homework to do. There’s really nothing else to talk about at this point. Just 4 weeks until I’m done with this semester. I can make it. I CAN make it.
How was your weekend?! What’s new in your life?
