love/don't love

Before I start this post in true Christy-fashion, I have a big 'Don't Love' that I need to get out of the way. I got some pretty off color comments in response to my visit to Yankee Stadium. First of all, this is my blog and I'm entitled to my opinion so if you are going to leave an off color comment on my blog, you need to give me a chance to respond to you and if you don't, I'm not going to post it because well hey, that's just rude. I wrote that post about a negative experience I had at a ballpark. I didn't write a post bashing the team, the fans, etc. so the off color comments were really off putting. Telling me that "there are Yankee fans and there's everyone else" is exactly why so many people commented about why they weren't surprised at my experience. Also, telling me that mascots and entertainment between innings is "cheesy high school kids stuff" is entirely false since the Yankees are only 1 out of 4 teams to not have a mascot. Oh and telling me that I need to go back with a positive attitude just demonstrates that you didn't read the entire post because I was really excited to go to the game until everything happened. And for the record, I brought my Kindle to the game because I keep my text books on it and had to go to class after the game, not so I could sit there and read it during the game so don't tell me that I'm not a true baseball fan because I had a Kindle in my purse. DON'T LOVE.

Now, moving on:

1. I had a great weekend. It was the perfect mix of relaxing, fun and family filled. Love.
2. I didn't get in my last run for the weekend because I was exhausted and at the advice of the Redhead, I needed to just listen to my body and take the rest day. Don't Love.
3. I crossed something else off The List this weekend! I took a photography class! Pictures and review to come this week! I can't wait to use my new photography skills on my trip this summer! Love.

 4. Its hard to believe that this weekend was my last weekend in the states for 2 months! It's weird, I've definitely been out of the country for much longer than 2 months but this time, everything just feels so different! I think it's because I'm going to be bouncing around so much. Don't Love. 
5. The Pilot got some fantastic news last week which I'll be sharing at a later point in time but I'm so unbelievably happy for him and so proud of him. Love.

6. I have a ridiculous amount of packing to do. I always pack light and I hate that I can't do that this time around! 6 different countries with 6 different climates is not very easy to lightly pack for. Backpacker's backpack, here I come! Don't worry, I will be posting ridiculous photos of me with my backpack that is 2x larger than me. Don't Love. 
7. I slept for 13 hours on Saturday and it was glorious. Love.
8. It's been a month since The Pilot and I have seen each other and while we were planning on seeing each other as soon as I get back to the states, that might not happen anymore meaning it'll have been over 3 months since we've seen each other. Don't Love. (I miss him so much)

That's that!  I've got a busy day ahead of me. On the schedule: starting to pack, lunch with Chloe (first time we're finally meeting!), a 6 mile run, tracking down foreign currencies and my passport which is somewhere at the Indian Consulate and trying to get my life in order sooner rather than later!

Sorry for the mini rant on this post but I was a little bit less than pleased with the way some people responded to my post.

Happy Monday everyone! Have a fantastic week!


  1. BOO to all the horrible people who posted negative comments to you...that's just really rude and I'm sorry that they did that. Some people just don't get it....

    I SO want to take a photography class sometime! I need to get a nicer camera, first, but that's on my 101 Things list...I'm excited to see your pictures that you post!

  2. I'm sorry people weren't nice to your post, I never understand why anyone would feel the need to be rude about another person's experience/opinion.

    Anyway, good luck with the packing and I hope you're able to check in with us while you're traversing the world. Big hugs to you girl!!!

  3. I would love to hear about your photography class! I have been thinking about getting a nicer camera but I think even just learning how to use mine would make a big difference! :)

    Sorry about the people who felt the need to be nasty. Rude comments are so not cool :(

  4. I didn't see the negative comments, but I loved your response. You are so right-on, my dear! Best of luck with all of the packing! I would be a little overwhelmed, too!

  5. ugh people who leave nasty comments on blogs are so ridiculous. they make me so mad! and i think it's awesome that you took a photography class!

  6. I can't believe people sent you rude comments. You wrote your review very objective and you are right, it's your blog. Don't worry and just ignore them

  7. I'm sorry to hear that you had a bad experience :( And that people were not nice to you. I never understood that in the blog world.

    On the bright side, I gave you a blog award, so be sure to check out my blog this afternoon, Christy!

  8. Lol my boyfriend would love to go backpacking somewhere, but I'm pretty sure I couldn't handle the backpack part haha he would end up wearing one on the front and one on the back :P
