Of success and strife

Jun 22, 2009

I got my grades back for Spring quarter. You may recall that this was the quarter I worked two jobs, studied for the GRE, prepared my grad school applications, and took 15 credits, plus I maintained a rich social life and volunteered at an elementary school. I earned a 4.0 this quarter. I'm not even going to pretend I'm not proud of that. I am in such a good place right now.

I also went clothes shopping this last week, since once again, everything I own is comically large on me. I'm down to a pant size around 18-22, women's large or extra-large in shirts, and a 10 in shoes as opposed to a 10W or 11. I think I look pretty good.

Except for all the grody hanging skin, that is. My arms are the worst. When I lift them, it's like... well, imagine a grocery bag full of water hanging from a tree branch. Nasty. The rest of me isn't much better, but at least I consistently hide everything else with clothes. But it's summer and maybe I want to wear short sleeves sometimes. My arms are way too gross to consider it though.

This summer, I have goals. I intend to visit the gym at least once a week (I'd like to commit to more, but I'm going to leave it at that and if I go more, I go more.) I'm also going to try to read at least one book every two weeks in addition to my school books. Oh, and I need another 4.0, which hopefully won't be too hard since I only have two classes this summer.
