love/don't love

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

Hi everyone! I linked up with Carissa for Miscellany Monday once before and I don't know why I never did again, but let's see if I can start making these a bit more regular! Ironically, a lot of the things I posted about in my last Miscellany Monday (in June!) are repeats of what's going on with me now.

[1] My blog was named one of the Best Running Blogs of 2011 by Jake from Broken Hearted Runner! I'm so excited and honored about this! Love. Love. Love. 
[2] I moved into my new apartment yesterday and am settled in for the most part. The move went fairly easy since I moved into a furnished apartment and I just have a few more things that I need to bring from home. I also have to put some pictures and things on the walls and set up some utilities and then I'll be all set! Love.
[3] It was 6 degrees this morning and I have a 15 minute walk from my new place to the train station. This makes me hate not being in Florida so much more. Don't love.

[4] Classes start tomorrow! I'm so excited for the classes I'm taking this semester and can't wait to see all my friends again! Love.
[5] I skipped my 8 mile long run this weekend :/. Saturday I was feeling under the weather all day and Sunday I was moving and watching the Jets game. Don't Love. 
[6] So that I don't continue to skip my runs, I'm joining a local running club in my new 'hood. They meet tonight for a 4 mile run. I'm excited because it'll be a way for me to meet some new people as well as to be able to keep running when it's dark and cold out. I'm hoping they'll guilt me into frequently coming back. Love. 
[7] I started reading "The Sound and the Fury" from The Book List. So far, I hate it. I have no idea what is going on, who the characters are, etc. I don't understand how this is in the Top 10 of the list. What's worse is that there are 2 other William Faulkner books on the list. Has anyone read anything by Faulkner? What did you think? Don't love.
[8] Before I left Florida, The Pilot and I went to see Country Strong. This movie was incredible and brought me to tears. I can't wait to buy the soundtrack! It was the best movie I've seen in a really long time. If you like country music, go see this movie. Love.

[9]I finished reading Pride & Prejudice and absolutely adored it. I can't believe I never read that book until now. I can't wait to watch the movie(s). Love.

That's what's going on with me! What's going on with you? 
Anyone have anything exciting going on this week? 


  1. Saying hi from Mingle Monday! Good luck with that running club. I just bought a rec pass hoping spending the money will guilt me into going... we'll see! Good luck staying warm, too... I guess the 50 degrees it is here in Texas isn't too bad!

  2. visiting from mingle monday and i love EVERYTHING about this blog! great style, fun posts, everything. :) can't wait to follow you...


  3. I loved Country Strong too! I got kind of mad at the end because I was hoping for her to pull through, but after thinking about it, it was a good movie.


  4. [1]The best running blog list is how I found your [fantastic] blog! :) Im so happy I did!
    [2] I skipped a run this week too and I dont love doing that either. Its such a battle with me everyday!
    [3] Its awesome you're joing a running club, its on my to-do list this very week as well, for the very same reasons!!!
    [4] LOVED COUNTRY STRONG! Soo much!

  5. I saw Country Strong as well and I have to say I loved it too! There are actually two soundtracks one is already out and the second, which includes more garrett hedlund and leighton meester songs, is on itunes but not yet available in stores. Just FYI.

    I've read one short story by faulkner and am hoping to attend a college that claims him. He's famous for his long sentences. The short story was good I that- but must not have been memorable as I can't recall the name...all else fails, sparknote as you read. When I am seriously confused by a book or a chapter I use sparknotes or cliffnotes or whatever. It really helps to clarify and sometimes even aides in better understanding the author.

    Hope that helps! Have a great day! Can't wait to hear about the running club and your classes!

  6. i absolutely hated the sound and the fury- so you are not alone!

    now that you've read pride and prejudice you really should read more jane austen! she is amazing. persuasion is one of my favorites.

  7. Congrats on the blog honor, my dear! You certainly deserve it!

    Can't wait to see pics of the new place! Enjoy the new semester!

  8. oh pride and prejudice. i read that some time ago and cant really remember if i liked it...i may have to try it again soon if it was good though! :)

  9. ahhhh I've been wanting to see Country Strong but wasn't sure how good it would be! I'm glad to hear it's amazing! I'll have to see it soon!
