It’s kind of a funny word when you see it in big lettering. Back back back back. Anyway, finals are over (for my eight week classes), the post-it notes are crumbled up, the books returned and the agonizing hours are over. Finals are done. I would have liked to have done better, but, like I say, life happens, and I haven’t had the easiest of semesters.
SO, it’s back into action. I miss posting, everyone!
Well, I’ll talk to myself then. HA!
No, I’m just kidding.
So, what’s been going on lately is I have a great new job. It’s a desk job where I am
harassed by boys politely left to my own devices. Actually, it’s been a blast getting to know everyone and making new friends, and I can tell it’s going to be a lot of fun to work in a new environment. It’s completely different from the hospital, and my stress/anxiety level is almost nothing.
So, I’ve been sinking a LOT of time into Skyrim. I’m not sure where I’ve found the time, but it’s really helped let go some of the stress from finals. (Did I mention I despise Econ?)
(Okay, so I made Danerys from Game of Thrones, so shoot me.)
To all of my gamer friends who have not played this. Don’t. It’s ADDICTING. (Just kidding, I highly recommend it!)
Memorial Day Weekend
Did everyone have a good Memorial day weekend? I hope so!
After finals, I stumbled upon the Strawberry Festival in Garden Grove. (It was right across the street from my school! Who knew?) I was in strawberry heaven. I’m not kidding, I think I completely filled up on strawberries and strawberry-flavored everything. A few of my favorites:
Strawberry Mocha! (Because what kind of coffee blog would this be if I didn’t get a strawberry mocha!) This was awesome!!!!
I also picked up a couple strawberry shortcakes for the family, which actually lasted the hour drive back to Rancho.
Sunday, I got caught up on a LOT of sleep. We also barbecued rabbit, which turned out just okay. Not sure if we were the biggest fans, but we’ve been experimenting with our barbecue and different meats on the weekend. (No, we didn’t kill any cute bunnies, we bought it from the Asian market, already dressed.)
On Monday, I spent some time out by the pool with a friend from my old job. It was SO relaxing!

I am READY to get back into my running routine! It’s felt so off, not being able to just get out there and run! In the mornings, I’ve been trying to figure out a good routine, but I’ve been mentally and physically exhausted from school, work and errands. Last week, most of my drives have been to L.A./Orange County, and have averaged about an hour.
This week, I’m back to carpooling and normal life schedules, so I’ll be posting back about my workouts/lunches/etc., by the end of the week.
AND…dun dun dun…I’ll be picking up a new digital camera soon! No more cruddy cell phone pictures! Finally, my blog will have that high-quality look. Excited!
Anyway, for those of you who have been sticking through my blog/life drama, thank you! I appreciate all of the positive comments and follows as this blog has taken a break due to crazy life events.
A big thank you!!
