17.1 is officially in the books. I unfortunately did not finish. Out of the 225 reps for the WOD, I capped off at 212 at the 20min mark. Which means I was 13 short of finishing. And let me tell you, IT. WAS. TERRIBLE!!!!! Lol. I did the Rx weight which is the 50lb dumbbell snatch. That part was easy to me. It was the Burpee box jump overs that got me.

Most of you guys don’t know this, but I have really bad chronic asthma. (Seriously I’ve gone to a specialist my entire life). During the WOD, I had to use my inhaler twice to avoid completely passing out. One for after the 3rd set of burpee box jumps overs and another for after the 4th set. By the end I basically felt like I was breathing in glass shards and literally could not breathe. My lungs were so inflamed lol. For the last 50 reps of dumbbell snatches, a good 20 of them were done with my eyes closed because it was the only way I could focus. Anyways I’m still proud of myself for what I’ve done today. I hope everyone else did well too. If anyone else would like to discuss how they did. I would love to hear from you guys.

Btw, that’s my box owner judging me and his wife took that photo. Thank god she didn’t take one of me literally dying afterwards lol.

When I was little I was in the tv show the suite life of Zack and Cody but I was like 8 months old. According to my mom the sprouse twins used to always hang out with me because she was a friend of the producer. The other day I met one of them and they remembered me and honestly I have never been more frightened yet absolutely happy in my entire life.

oh my go sh that’s so cool? i loved that show (correction: i still love it but i have to stay up until like three am to watch it and i just) like i wasn’t a cool child at all, like when i was three or four i broke out of my crib, went down into the basement and broke a dvd player or something

and you come away with a great little story of a mess of a dreamer with the nerve to adore you!!!!! the lyric that basically changed my entire life tbh.

rating: 13.1313131313/10

send me the taylor swift lyrics u don’t think get enough attention and i’ll rate them out of 10

Sometimes I want to make fun of old and middle aged people for the Alex Jones conspiracy-level shit they fall for, but then I remember that this site is full of the most gullible bunch of fucks I’ve ever seen in my entire goddamn life

I feel like your whole life is doing homework or other school related activities and being stressed. That's not a way to live life. What type of experiences are you having ? life is about a balance between experiences, going places meeting people doing things... you appear to be missing that from your blog tbh. You should give yourself more time to have these experiences and live life not spending every second of everyday working. There's more to life than academic accolades and the ivy league

hey there,

I very much appreciate the sentiment behind your words, and truly appreciate your concern; thank you very much for wanting a well-balanced life for my ol’ self :-) 

I, however, would have to respectfully disagree. Whereas I wholeheartedly agree with you that being stressed all the time, 24/7, is in no way healthy–I would be amiss if I didn’t assert that my life is not entirely doing homework and other school-related activities. I don’t reveal every aspect of my collegiate life on this blog (and I am woefully behind on college diaries this semester), but–believe it or not–I do make sure to take time to relax and unwind when I feel truly burnt out, and I do spend time laughing and being carefree with my friends. That being said, I do recognize that I spend an inordinate amount of time on school and extracurricular activities–but that is my choice and, as stressed as I am sometimes (a lot of the time), I chose this for myself, and this is the way that I am ultimately happy. I have a goal that I want to reach, and have wanted to reach for the longest time, and I am happiest when I am pursuing this goal. Do I wish that I could go out more? Yes. (Kind of… not really… tbh I feel too old for frat parties; it’s the same thing over and over again, and I’ve gotten it out of my system in the last 2 years) Do I wish that I could have free time/time to spend just watching TV shows and lounging around? Yes. 

But do I regret any of the effort, the stress, the hours of sleep forgone? No. Absolument not. 

Because it is that effort, those stresses, those hours lost that have got me to this point in my life, with the GPA that I have; the job lined up for this summer; the leadership positions I hold on campus. And, as stressed as I am, sometimes, the stresses are burdens that I take upon myself because I thrive the most when I am working towards a goal. I get tired along the way, to be sure–but when I do, I take time to take care of myself and rejuvenate. But then I am up and back at it, because this is the home stretch–because all these hours studying and stresses taken on now will hopefully carry me on to my next dream, my ultimate dream of studying what I truly, wholeheartedly love and using that knowledge and degree to bring a voice to those who lack the means to share their issues and stories. 

I don’t know when I said that academic accolades and the Ivy League (what? what even lmao I avoid telling people where I go to school irl b/c I hate the undeserved ~wow~ factor behind it and it makes me feel v awkward so???? what) were life, but I am assuming that you’ve come to such conclusions having drawn from my self-pep-talk text posts. Which is a reasonable conclusion to come to, I s’pose, but I’m going to clarify here that my effort and my work is not for a “pretty” GPA. I want to do well in school for a myriad of reasons (being the daughter that my parents deserve, after having immigrated to this country and having supported me through everything and letting me explore any and all of my passions; because I have a deep respect and love for academia and want to do as well as possible and be deserving of the education that I’ve been so bless to have received throughout my whole life) but, most notably, I strive for a high GPA because it is ultimately one of the biggest factors to achieving the dream that I’ve had since forever (read: law school) and I absolument, absolument believe that some of the sacrifices I do make are so, so worth it for that moment hopefully to come, when I open (hopefully) acceptance letters (please) to the schools I’ve been hoping for for so long. Also a huge believer in that university is, first and foremost, a place of academics so it’s only naturally imo to prioritize school and give it my all??? from a personal standpoint??? but I won’t get too much into that

AH anyway: thank you so much for your concern, and I appreciate your sentiments very much! I do wish that you’d worded this message with a little less judgment, but ! thank you all the same for your concern, and wishing you a lovely weekend xx

What is your favorite fanfic besides one you have written and why?

I’ll Be Yours for a Song by @dynamicsymmetry because that fic literally changed my life and my ideas about what writing can do and also makes me feel like shit because I WILL NEVER BE THIS GOOD but also fills my soul because it’s the most beautiful piece of art i have read in my entire life

lads you know the song puff the magic dragon? you know the part that goes “and brought him strings and sealing wax and other fancy stuff”? for my entire life the question at the back of my mind has been “what in the world is ceiling wax?” and the correct homophone just at this moment hit me out of nowhere
