a/n: i’m so sorry for the wait guys! work has been stressing me lately along with some personal issues but i appreciate your guy’s patience. the next chapter will already be written out but requests will be taken care of before i post the next so please continue to be patient until then and check the schedule if you’re wondering about it.
This past weekend I raced steeple for the first time of the season! (Peep the new spikes😏) it was a great start to the season considering that I hardly had any practice going over hurdles so far, had not been able to work on my water jumps, and had to run the whole race by myself because there wasn’t any competition.
While I didn’t run the time that I wanted, I have to keep reminding myself that this is only my first race of the season and that it is 25 seconds faster than where I started last year. I know that with more practice, I will be able to do great things.
How's your favorite x-men character from the comics? What's your favorite mutant power?
Favorite X-Men character would be Jean Grey. Always has been and always will be. Although I kinda hated her in Xmen Forever. Like how many team members is she gonna get with? Lol.
Favorite mutant power? Well I usually say telekinesis but tbh, I’m not sure if that would be a power that I actually wanted, if I could really have superpowers I mean. Like what good would it do me really? If I had a mutant power, I would want it to be something more practical. I mean, something that I could actually benefit from. Like that chick from the show Heroes with the infinite memory. You could literally become fluent in a new language in maybe a day or so! Or read the entire textbook for a class and never have to study!! Or maybe teleportation, cause I could pop over to see my family in Ireland in the blink of an eye!
Auntie Jilli, I have a suggestion for organising your jabots (or more mundane items like socks so your jabots can get more glorious space): what about getting one of those hanging 'shoe' organisers for your wardrobe. They look like a big sheet of canvas or something with pockets sewn on - I'm sure you could make your own too so you could match it to your own aesthetic. Much love from Denmark
Oooh, what a clever idea! And much more practical than storing them in hatboxes. Thank you, nice Denmark anon!
Today I spent 4 hours traveling back home from the island, bought myself a pint of vegan ben and jerrys, ate some, sent in my overdue assignment, took a nap, and did more research on schools for my PhD. I also did some more of the math practice for the GRE and it’s incredible how much you forget after six years without a math class.
I’m still not super happy with the assignment, but at least it’s done. I beat myself up over that one way too much - for it being late, for it not being good enough. I really let my imposter syndrome get the best of me this time, and that sucks, but it happens. Time to move on!
I have no pictures of my work set up or books I read because neither of those things really happened today, so here is my face with my current favorite Snapchat filter. You’re welcome.
