Looking to the Future

So I’m not entirely sure what I mentioned where, but I have been accepted at Albany, Buffalo, Vermont, and Western New England Law schools.  After some deliberation I decided upon Western New England Law for school  next year.  I’m feeling pretty good about my decision and the most hilarious part is that their mascot is the golden bears. 8e5aa1d9-80c7-42d6-bb91-b272558bab14 So basically I go from the Bears to the Golden Bears….

So that’s been decided, I’m (er my mom) is sending in the deposit money and then I will be able to pick some housing and get all set up! I’m a little nervous, but very excited to graduate in May.  My time at Potsdam has been fun, but I’m more than ready to move on and be challenged on a new level.  Also, one of the gyms in WNE has Crossfit stuff so….

Which brings me to working out related things.  I recently hit a new squat PR of 120 lbs.  I was very excited about it.  Now my goal is going to be to squat my body weight, which means I have 30 lbs. to go.  I actually gained around 5 lbs. in the past few months, which I’m ok with because I’m about 99.9% sure it’s muscle and not fat. And if it somehow does turn out to be fat I’d be damn surprised.  85f9e9a6531e903b7de2fa6cdf2f225e

On an entirely different note, my friend Hollikins got engaged to her boyfriend (well now fiancé) Tim.  It is super exciting and I’m so happy for her!  I hope that she knows that I will in fact be creeping on Facebook for wedding photos when it comes the time, but I digress…

Oh, I’ve also made a NEW color-coordinated schedule for my life.  Our Student Government Executive Board elections are happening next week and I will be thankfully kicked out of office.  I can’t wait! I’m going to have so much time on my hands that I know I won’t know what to do with myself, but I’m kinda ok with it.

So that’s everything that I can remember right now. So I think I’m good and I hope that y’all are too!
So until later, TTFN.


Getting back in the swing

So I got back to Potsdam yesterday afternoon.  I pretty much just spent my day unpacking, grocery shopping and then hanging out with 2 of my pledge brothers from PMA.  I love them because a) they are super duper fun and b) I don’t have a b… I just love them.  Anywhoser, Chris and I always watch movies together, we have a list of movies we need to watch together and somehow it always ends up getting longer. But that’s a topic for another day.  My other pledge brother Rob, is an amazing cook- for reals.  He made stuffed shells last night while at my house, which I was more than happy to eat.  The fact that he cooks and I clean lead us to decide we were getting engaged.  I just found this ring on-line, maybe I’ll make Rob buy it for me hahaha

I think its pretty anyways…. So that was the joke of the night last night.

And today I ran my 5 when I got up this morning.  And I thought I was going to get frost bite.  Like I had multiple layers on, socks, gloves, etc. and when I went to get in the shower I realized how cold I was and almost my entire body was red from the wind.

I’ve since learned that layers are my best friend especially when I run in the mornings wicked early, like this coming week before classes because its going to be seriously cold outside.

Also, I’m trying to stay as de-stressed as possible before my presentation today and before the first week of classes.  As in I’m going to attempt to get a decent amount of work done this weekend before classes start next week so that I can chill during my birthday week, because that’s right I made my birthday a whole week.
So I’ll let you know how it goes, until later TTFN.
