I haven’t been one to miss this many days of posting, but this past month has kicked my butt. Between being sick for almost three weeks, plus crazy weeks of work, I’ve fallen off the wagon. But here I am trying to get myself back on! (Right before I go to Ireland so … we’ll see how this goes.) Linking up with Katie.
So, since I was pretty much MIA besides last Monday’s post, I’ll fill you in on last week as well! My week was insane! I have to coordinate move in week
(which doesn’t make any sense with my job description, but that’s neither here nor there) and it was a crazy week. I couldn’t do pretty much anything due to being so sick the week prior, but I ran the show! Monday I worked with the cross country team and football team to get all of the loft pieces into the freshman rooms that ordered them. Tuesday I coordinated the volunteers who put together the lofts in all of the rooms (it took almost 5 hours – I felt so bad!). On Wednesday our honors students moved in, so we spent the morning welcoming the students and moving in all of their belongings. Now Thursday was the “big day”, meaning the rest of the freshman class moved in and I had to coordinate the entire campus and my volunteers. CRAZY. They gave me a gator which, after I figured it out, became my new favorite toy.
The day went without too many hiccups somehow and it was over in no time! I was whooped!
Friday came early and with a lot of pain – my back was completely in knots from being so sick/stressed out the few weeks prior that I literally couldn’t move my neck or my right arm. Fun stuff, huh? After working for a few hours (my last half day – WAH), I ran to get my eyebrows waxed, went to the bank to get my money situation figured out for Ireland (!!!!!) and then ate Qdoba because …. sodium.
After downing my Qdoba and feeling like I was going to explode, I went to my travel agent’s office to pick up my CIE Tours information for my trip (!!!!!!!!!!!) and then headed over to a spa in town to get a 20-minute chair massage. I’m so cheap, so I chose the cheapest option even though I really need a full massage, but thankfully the therapist was able to pull some of the knots out of my back so it’s semi-movablenow. GOSH I’M GETTING OLD.
Horrible quality, but you get the point.
The rest of the night I sat on my couch, took a bunch of ibuprofen to help with my back and fell asleep at 8:30. #partyanimal
My weekend was pretty boring since I had to work most of it, but that’s okay. I worked 6:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. on Saturday and then went home and lounged out. Sunday I was able to get rid of half of my shift, so I only worked from 6:30-11 and it was GLORIOUS. I spent the rest of the afternoon trying to figure out my mom’s camera (didn’t go so well), cleaning my apartment, putting my bed back in it’s frame and filming an August Favorites video!
Give that a watch if you’re feeling fun. 🙂
My sister came over after that to drop off my sunglasses that I forgot in her car and then we went to Fazoli’s for pasta (mostly the breadsticks) and then we got FROYO!
I went a litttttle crazy with the toppings and didn’t end up eating it all, BUT sour gummy worms are the BEST.
And now that brings me to today! According to my scale I’m down 4 lbs. (so I’m sure it’s broken because I have no idea how that could’ve happened) and I’m dragging ass this morning after working all weekend. So I decided to dress up today to pretend that I’m awake.
I work tonight and tomorrow night at my part-time job, then Thursday I’m in Wausau, Wis. for an event all night and Friday/Saturday is Alumni Football Weekend that I have to plan/attend. THEN I’M GOING TO IRELAND. So… basically if you have any tips on how to pack or how to do anything at an airport or how not to panic about either of those things, I’d love to know. 🙂
Tell me something about your weekend!
Any tips of traveling when you’re 1) absolutely terrified of flying and 2) a very, very, very beginner when it comes to traveling?
