Happy Friday! I think I can actually scrounge up a little schoolwork to do this weekend, and I’m actually okay with it. I have a short essay due next Friday and a mostly-done problem set due next Thursday, and then there will be another lull. I’m not sure what else the weekend holds. It’s not supposed to be as nice, weather-wise, and I hurt my ankle a little on Monday (see: why I never run two days in a row… but I needed it), so no
long runs this weekend. Today is a class day, and then I have a couple appointments, and then it’ll be a fun surprise to see what I actually do. Before all that, let’s take a look back at some of our favorites from the week. Sound good? Sweet.
You already knew it. So much fun.
Cuckoo for Coconuts Trek Mix
All I have to say is that this stuff is crack. I even bought the individual packages, but it’s hard not to plow through more than one when they’re so tasty. It has toasted coconut, some coconut-praline cashews, almonds, and dark chocolate coconut butter cups. Ahhh it’s so good. Gonna go get some. Be right back.
A Pippa picture
This is the slightly confused look my dog gives you whenever you stop petting her for a second. “Really? You’re going to stop? But I’m so cute and cuddly.” And then she shifts a little closer to you just to make sure you get the message. I get to see her in 6 weeks!
Chicago in general
Look, I’m pretty freaking excited to be almost done with college and to be back in Columbus. Both of those things sound very (very, very) good to me. However, if I could live in two places at once, like I sort of do now, Chicago would undoubtedly be the other one. Actually, I want three places because I need a warm escape in February sometimes.
The running, the food, the shopping, the prettiness, the lake, the walkability… just know that it’s great and I love it and leaving will be hard.
A Blue Jackets win
Gonna nerd out about hockey for a second. The Blue Jackets, who I love dearly, have essentially sucked for their lifetime as a team (just the truth, guys). This year, it was different. It wasn’t a matter of just barely making the playoffs, but of being one of the best teams in the league. It was really freaking cool. They kinda sucked in the playoffs, though, losing the first three games of the series to Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh is a very good team, and this was a relatively likely occurrence, but it was still very un-fun given that the Blue Jackets won 16 games in a row earlier in the season (very rare in hockey).
ANYWAY. The Blue Jackets managed a (shaky) win on Tuesday night, and you can bet I watched. I also watched them lose last night, but it was nice to not get swept. There’s always next year.
If you could live anywhere, where would you choose?
