College Track

I’m not saying being a runner makes you better than anyone else. But one thing is for sure. Running makes you different. You begin to understand the connection between your feet and the ground. You start to believe in the beauty of unfiltered conversation. You learn that you have to face your deepest demons on 10 mile runs when no one else is around. You become the wind. You love to high five your rivals, the people who just beat you. You learn that your mind and body must coexist in a healthy relationship. So no, running does not make you special. But it sure as hell wakes you up.

Keep Track! Self-Gradebook

I am the type of person that likes to keep my own tally of grades and dates so that I am reliant on someone else. Also, not all of my professors post all grades to the online gradebook we can view. So, anytime I turn in an assignment I write down what is was, what date it was due, and what my grade was once we get it back.

I also do the same with exams and papers. I keep a running total so that I can easily calculate how well or poorly I am doing in a class. Professors make mistakes, but if you have all of the information, they can easily corrected. Example being, my Shakespeare professor lost out midterm objective tests, but I had written down everything when she gave them back (before losing them), and the problem was easily fixed.

Assignment/Exam Logs are a great way to monitor yourself. You will always have a reference on hand. I put my logs in my Erin Condren planner. In the back, there are blank pages which I taped the printable template into. They are cute and functional! 

If anyone cares for the templates, shoot me a message and I can email them to you. They’re basic ones I made real quick in word, so they’re nothing fancy!

Keep studying, midterms are among us!

friendly reminder

As everyone is complaining about the tumblr update, praising the xkit guy for updating xkit so quickly and already planning to add new features, and ‘petitioning’ for the xkit guy to make his own social media platform; how about all of you go donate to the xkit guy to keep him going with his beautiful mission.

Why donate? (as copy and pasted form the xkit website)

  • XKit is free, and always will be, absolutely without any ads or anything else that can make me any money.
  • STUDIOXENIX is not a huge corporation, but only one man in his early 20s, still in college.
  • Keeping track of Tumblr changes is time consuming and causes hair loss.
  • I work on XKit between college and work, with little time left for myself.
  • XIM and XKit servers cost a lot of money, monthly.
  • Delicious good karma instantly delivered by the cosmos.

So yes, go DONATE and help out the guy who has made our tumblr life so much more enjoyable.


This past Friday I proved myself and my coach wrong
I did what we thought wouldn’t happen for months to come
I beat the only high school PR I had left and it happened to be the hardest one.
I had this PR for 4 years and had every intention of the world on breaking it.
The 5:45 wasn’t going to hold me back much longer.
I came into my race on Friday thinking I could run a sub 6 min mile since I’m just coming back from my injury and cross country and I’ve been pretty consistent with my training. I thought running a 5:50 was pushing it but achievable
I ran my whole race thinking I was running 45 per 200
But I was quickly proven wrong.
I never not pay attention to my splits but this race I felt exceptionally smooth and good so I just went by feel.
Looking back I must’ve fed of my team going nuts watching me hold 45,44,42,42,42,41,41,37 and hit the best time I’ve ran in forever.
I came through the last turn completely kicking to try and win my heat and I saw the clock
I instantly found a gear I never knew I had and pulled off a 5:42 mile
A 5:fucking42
I crossed the line crying to be greeted by my coach picking me up and holding me for 5 mins
He couldn’t stop saying how he’s never taking me off the elliptical and how surprised and proud he was
Once he finally let me down I was greeted by some of the girls running in the heat after me and my best friend ( @journeybacktostrong ) with hugs and support
We were all shocked
I’m still hyped over it
Which leads me to my tattoo
My mantra
“Never settle”
The whole race I told myself how I had to own up to it and not let my dad & boyfriend down who drill this into my mind
Well I did it
And I’m not slowing down now

ok i just have really strong feelings about modern au eponine livin the inner city gang life and dreaming about getting out.

(im just going to leave these feelings right here)

Let’s get wasted
