This Week - Life Update

This week has been really crazy for me so far! I don't want to miss a post this year as per my New Year's Resolutions, so here I am!

One of the main things that's been going on this week is that the window on my car broke while partially rolled down. I was able to get it into a shop to get it fixed on the same day, but it turned out to be a bigger deal than I thought... I would've left it as it was until I was able to go home next (although a drive that long with the window partially down wouldn't be super ideal), but my area has been getting almost nonstop rain, and I was worried that my car would be broken into because the window was down enough for someone to get their arm through.

Although I live about a 15-20 minute walk from campus, it's been really frustrating to me not having my car! I guess you don't realize how good something is until you don't have it anymore! I was meant to get my car back today, nice and fixed up, but unfortunately the wrong part was sent so they were unable to finish fixing it. The correct part is meant to get there tomorrow morning, and then I'll have my car by the afternoon. 

Not having my car has been hardest for me because most days I need to be at work by 6:45am, which means that I need to get up earlier to be ready in time to walk the 20 min to my office from my apartment. With all of the rain, it's not very ideal. 

I've also been pretty worried about Pepe, who I know is in the beginnings of a respiratory infection. At the moment, I have no means of transporting him to get to a Veterinarian, so I'm trying to keep a close eye on him to make sure he doesn't get any worse before I'm able to get him the medicine that he needs to get all healed up.

I'm working on a long, photo filled update about all of my pets, so at that point I'll hopefully have a healthy Pepe and a lot of other good news as well.

This week, I've been the most excited about the athletic class that I signed up for and started doing through my school. It's called "20/20/20" and I've really enjoyed it so far! It's 20 min of Spin, 20 min of Rowing, and then 20 min of strength and core work. It's much more intense than the yoga classes that I've taken in the past, but I've actually been really enjoying it! On top of all the extra walking I've been doing this week, I feel like I've got a great start to the year and to my health goals. 

This week has also been the first true look into all of my classes, and so far it all seems to be going pretty well. I'm doing another 17 credits, and working part time, along with continuing to take care of the rabbits. I think that I have a pretty good handle on everything. I've got my planner totally filled out with due dates, exams, and homework reading assignments. I'm hoping that this semester will be easier for me to keep up with so I won't have the end of the semester panic like I did this last semester.

All in all, I wouldn't say that my feelings of stability have improved at all. Things seem to continue to go wrong, but I'm doing my best to hang onto the few things that are going well, and to my guinea pigs who I know will always be happy to see me (especially if I have food for them). 

I'll see you on Tuesday!
