First day back, and I already got stood up by my freaking bitchass TA for my 9am class (would an email be too much to ask for??), was late to lecture, and am back to my sad lazy college diet of eggs, carrots, and dried fruit. I miss home =[
But at least some good did come out of today. The first Taekwondo practice (even though I was SERIOUSLY debating feigning a fatal illness to get out of going) ended up being more rewarding than expected. Coach worked me hard, even though I’m not even competing this weekend. Not that I’m complaining, because it actually makes me feel really good whenever I get through an intense training session. It’s hard to explain why, but every time I drag my feet and feel bad for myself about having to practice, I’m always glad I did go. We went to Tapioca Express and Los Primos afterwards, but I was a good little girl and stuck to my water and good conversation to fuel me, instead of caving into my usual midnight greasy food temptations. *sigh. It’s ok, you did good kid.
ALSO, I got printed in The Guardian today!!! First issue of the quarter, too. I wish I could post a link to my article, but for some reason the online archive is being a little f#cker and wont grant me access. In a nutshell, it’s about a spacecraft project funded by NASA called MoonKam that’s being used to help get middle schoolers interested in science and technology. I’ll post the next one I write, for sure. But seeing my name and something I wrote circulated on something besides tumblr (ha ha) was really reassuring. Hmm…more on that later. Maybe.
So it ended up being a pretty great first day, despite, you know, the actual school part.
