Believe me you guys, I am painfully aware of the fact that I haven’t blogged for a week. It hurts. I feel guilting. I miss writing. Blah blah blah. The truth is, though, I do sort of have a very valid reason. We’re going about this Thinking Out Loud style, because
a) Amanda’s link up is the bomb.freaking com
b) I can.
1. I moved out.
I actually, legitimately no longer live at home full time. Last weekend was spent packing up all my favourite clothes, makeup, nut butter (obvs) and a WHOLE BUNCH of dorm decorations because we all know that’s necessary. And then on Tuesday morning I woke up and drove away.
Am I sad about it? HELL NO. I am SO excited for every single day to be a new adventure. Heck – it already is.
2. Cheap coffee = not actually so bad. I drank both Keurig coffee and coffee from a cheap grinder and guess what? I actually liked it. I know – personal growth, people. I’m not planning on spending $5/per day on coffee, and I am DEFINITELY not buying a $250 grinder, so this was a necessary adjustment. Be proud of me.
In terms of actual adventures, though, I had one of those too!
3. We hiked to the top of Mount Revelstoke! Is it just me, or does anyone else absolutely love that feeling standing over a cliff knowing that with one wrong step you would be a goner? I’m sort of an adrenaline junkie that way. But for the most part, I will keep getting my adrenaline fix from running – there are no crazy suspension bridge plans over here.
4. I’m sore from a 20 minute workout. I always plan to go running on trips since it’s so easy, but then I wimp out because I’m lazy/hungry/scared of getting lost. Yesterday morning I did a circuit of squats, lunges, and random bodyweight leg workouts and HOLY MAN ALIVE my poor glutes. Love that feeling.
5. Bees are my worst enemy. I have never, EVER been stung by a bee nor wasp. I’m not sure when I transitioned from “kinda scared” to “full-out terrified” but on our hike, every time I heard a buzzing I LOST IT. It is honestly not an attempt to be dramatic or get attention. I literally feel my heart stop and speed up at the same time when I hear/see one. And yet I can’t remember the last time I wore bug spray…
6. Apparently I’m not good with essential equipment. Do you want to know the one thing I forgot at home? AN UMBRELLA. Seriously. I am moving to THE rainiest city in Canada and I can’t even remember an umbrella. I’m hoping that there’s time before the nonstop rain for my mom to get home and mail it to me because I”m a poor student now and don’t want to buy another one. Still, though. #fail.
What is the dumbest thing you have ever forgotten?
How old were you when you moved out?
