August Recap!

Well, it's September and that means back to school! Classes start on Wednesday and it's my last semester of course work before I start my thesis which means sh*t is gettin' real!

I'm so excited for this semester. I'm taking some pretty interesting (I hope!) classes and doing an awesome research project with a wonderful professor and I can't wait to tell you all about it!

I've been in a weird funk lately but I had an absolutely amazing day yesterday and I feel like I'm on top of the world after it. The Pilot is finally home (thanks, Irene, you're a hoe) and all set to start flying planes! Next time you fly, take a peek in the cockpit! You might see him! I can't wait to have weekly dates with him! I hope we don't get sick of each other...just kidding!

So with the end of another month, means another recap! With less than 6 months to go on The List, I've acknowledged that I'm not going to be able to cross everything odd but you know what? I'm having an awesome time with it so I'm going to keep up with it and just see how much I can cross off! So let's see how I'm doing?

In the month of August, I:

  • Ran 140 miles total...the most mileage I've ever hit in 1 month and am well under way in training for Marathon #2
  • Finally started working on my college scrapbook again
  • Read the Books of Isaiah, Jeremiah and Lamentations from The Holy Bible
  • Reached 400 followers on my blog (hello new friends!) and wrote more blog posts than in any other month since I started blogging
  • Visited Minute Maid and PNC Parks, homes of the Houston Astros and Pittsburgh Pirates, my visit to exactly half of all of the Major League ballparks!
  • Read "Heart of Darkness" by Joseph Conrad and "Sonnets" by William Shakespeare (and didn't really care for either) from The Book List
  • Watched "To Kill a Mockingbird," "12 Angry Men" and "Apocalypse Now" (all during Hurricane Irene...loved the first 2, hated the second) 

So there you have it! Another productive month out of the way! September is going to be crazy busy and super exciting!

I can't wait.

How did your month shape up?


  1. Isn't it great how one good day change totally change your perspective on things. Cheers for high mileage, a new semester, Pilot, and the start of fall!

  2. are you enjoying the books on the BBC list? I started to do that list awhile ago but was too overwhelmed by it!

  3. I can only imagine how happy you must be to have your pilot back! :)
