I’m in all sorts of pain! My right thumb has been absolutely killing me, the tip of it is really tender and sore and I could not figure out what what wrong! Then it hit me…


That’s right. I have been so addicted to my new Blackberry and am constantly playing brickbreaker checking very important e-mails that my thumb is sore from the little ball in the middle to move around the screen. No good! I need a technology break or something!

Also, I got my 3rd HPV vaccine today and I don’t think I’m going to be able to lift my arm for a week, it’s so sore! I’m such a baby.


I got up early, as always, and started the day with a nice bowl of yogurt, cereal, and a pear. Then I spent way too much time on GoodReads.com setting up my account for the blogger book club that Jenn coordinated. 


I eventually made it to the gym for a great workout. I took the advice that I learned yesterday and followed up my workout with a nice soy latte to replenish my body with some nice protein, carbs, and fat. I could feel my muscles repairing, haha!


Then I had a long afternoon of work, meetings, shot, and tons of studying.


I stopped midway through my crazy afternoon for a lunch break of a giant salad. It was v. refreshing.



I hit the books for a while and had some study snacks to get me through: popcorn and yogurt.



I also saw that Kristin tagged me in a ‘post 7 things you love’ game. How fun! I love things like this. It was hard to just choose 7 but here it goes:

1. My Family— As you guys know I am really close to my family and have such a hard time when I’m away at school. Even though we sometimes drive each other crazy disagree, they mean everything to me! I’m including my 2 best friends in this category too because honestly they are like family to me!

2. Reading— Honestly, there is nothing better than a good book. I love getting totally immersed in a story to the point where I look at the clock and hours have gone by without me realizing it. I’m so excited for the Blogger Book Club to start up so that I can find even more good books to read!

3. Warm Weather— I am a completely different person when I don’t have to bundle up. Days where I can go outside without a jacket on put me in an instantaneously better mood. I love going outside when the sun is shining and it’s warm, it just makes everything better.

4. Hot Drinks—Coffee, tea, hot chocolate…There is just something so comforting about a nice warm beverage, you know?

5. Cooking— I love creating healthy, fresh, wholesome meals for myself and my family. I feel so much better when I take the time to create a delicious meal that I can feel good about eating. I miss my kitchen so much when I’m at school!

6. Traveling— Even though I am a homebody I really like exploring new places. I studied abroad in Israel and in Spain and I loved sightseeing and visiting new cities. Paris is my all time favorite!

7. Blogging— Honestly, I don’t know what I would do without you guys! I love blogging so much and I adore this supporting, fun, and welcoming community we have. I have made so many good friends through blogging which I am so thankful for. I really don’t know what I would do with all my time if I didn’t have this great hobby!


Alright, I’m off to study a little more then it’s out to dinner and party time for my friends’ 21st birthday! See you tomorrow!

    Ah, yes…carpal tunnel on the good ol’ CrackBerry! What make do you have? I’ve had the 8830 World Edition for over a year now and I honestly don’t know what I’d do without it! 🙂

    Oh no! Not the dreaded CRACKBERRY!! 🙂 It is so addicting. I think I need to lay off the technology once in a while, too.

    Thanks for the Blogger Book Club shout out! I’m so excited that you’re excited because I’m excited. Haha.

    Glad you got a latte to rebuild those muscles 😉 And I love your 7 loves! They closely mirror my own – especially number 6 (love Paris and can’t wait to go back some day!) and 7 (because I count YOU as one of those amazing friends I’ve made)!

    Have so much fun tonight, girly!
