It has been awhile. Sarah and I had decided to give up this blog because Erick and I’s orders to Idaho got cancelled, and that was the main reason we started this thing in the first place. However, I feel like writing right now so here I am :). I don’t even know where to start. Life has been insane lately.
For starters, after our wedding in Vegas (which was buttloads of fun, btw), I came back and started ALS about a month later. For those who don’t know, ALS stands for Airmen Leadership School and it’s a 6 week course you have to go through before you can get promoted to Staff Sergeant (SSgt). When I got back from ALS I got switched to a new office, which was extremely overwhelming because it felt like I was starting over from the beginning and had no idea what I was doing. As I started to pick it up and understand how everything works in the new office, I started to like it. A lot better than my old office actually. The people are nicer and way more welcoming and I even like the job better. It’s just still been very overwhelming because, since getting promoted to SSgt, my responsibility has increased immensely. I love it, though. I like being busy. I’m a very “go, go, go!” kind of person. I’m just not completely used to it yet so I’ve been completely exhausted.
Also, I am working on my Bachelor’s degree and this semester has been the most discouraging yet. One of my classes is Intro to Programming and I figured we would be learning the basics and actually writing programs in Java or some other language. Nope! We use some awful program called Alice and it just feels so tedious and worthless. Only 3 more weeks of it though. I just gotta keep on truckin’ and keep in mind that this is the first class that has made me feel like this and I’m sure next semester will be better again.
Lastly, I am trying SO hard to get back into running. Last summer I ran a half marathon and I was at the lowest weight I’ve been in a long time and felt super in shap. At the time, though, I STILL wasn’t satisfied. But now, 10 lbs heavier, when I look at pictures from last summer I wanna look like THAT again. Side note, I’m not trying to get back into running JUST to lose weight; I like how I feel when I’m running and taking care of myself. I am really excited because yesterday after work I went and got my feet and running style analyzed and bought some new running shoes. Brooks to be exact! I’ve been wanting a pair of Brooks for averylong time so I am pumped and can’t wait to use them! I really wanted to use them today but I worked over night last night and just couldn’t get my energy back today. Plus, it was super cold and rainy today…lame.
So, that leads to tonight. Tonight has been the most relaxing night in SO long and I am enjoying every minute of it. Erick’s friend wanted to hang out and drink some beers so I encouraged him to go and told him I just wanted to stay home. I’ve got some quality ‘me’ time in. Caught up on some cleaning (the tops of our cabinets in the kitchen had such a thick layer of dust on them that they looked gray rather than white…I fixed that right up), did some laundry (our bed set and extra blankets needed to be washed badly), and watched hours of Friends re-runs (never gets old). And ate a lot of food. Dang you, Pinterest, for teaching me how to make a brownie in a mug!!
I have a hair appointment tomorrow… may the relaxing weekend continue :).
Yup, that’s how Intro to Programming makes me feel.
Ok I’m done. Have a good weekend everyone!
