Long Time No Blog

Haven't been posting much recently. It's not that I haven't had things to post about--absolutely the opposite!--but I've been busy doing stuff and haven't been taking the time to randomly ramble on here. Rachel had a good point yesterday too, when she said it's not as fun to post if you don't think anyone's reading. Shout out to all of you--I have a 2.5 hour commute so I'm reading :)

I think the other thing is that I've always been a creature of phases. Sometimes I get totally excited about things and then after a while, I'm less into them and I get swept up into something else (case in point: the half-finished scarf in my room after a brief fling with knitting last christmas). Who knows, just a weird me thing. But I'm going to put more time into blogging and try not to let it go for so long between posts...

There have been some crazy times in the past few weeks though. Highlights include:
  • NYE--my first in the city, complete with BYOB subway & Fontaine making a new "friend". Also, the NYRC football game, which Brookhattan won for the first time!
  • No Pants Subway Ride 2k8--pretty much just what it sounds like. It was pretty cold!
  • Skiing!! for the first time in 5 years. It took a few runs to get back in the groove but once I did, it felt like flying. I realized how much I missed it and will definitely be getting up to Whistler when I'm home in March!
  • Idiotarod prep--picture the Iditarod, but instead of dogs, sled, and Alaska, it's people, a shopping cart, and Brooklyn. The Angry Whores will sail their pirate ship to victory this Saturday, pillaging and plundering and sabotaging as we go! Yarr!
Plus just a lot of random stuff. I'm doing the Colgan program to get into better shape for rugby and am lifting with a lot of the U19s, so I've been spending a lot of time in the gym. I went back to school this weekend for a few birthdays and had a great night. And I'm trying to fix up my resume and research visa options etc. That's a whole nother can of worms :) It's hard trying to balance everything and I definitely wind up sacrificing sleep and not accomplishing things as soon as I would like, but I'm working on it. First on the agenda: goals for 2008! Yes, it's been 3 weeks and I haven't written out any resolutions. But I'm thinking about them so that counts :)

Also, I just want to note that conversation hearts are now in stores!!! Is it sad that they're the most exciting thing about valentine's day for me? Potentially. But who cares when you have delicious sugary goodness saying "U go girl," "you rule" and "email me"? Mmm...officially addicted. It's a good thing they're not available year-round...
