So Easily Distracted

It’s been pretty silent around these parts lately for a few reasons: 1. I have not been running or working out in any way, 2. I’ve been studying a great deal for a couple exams, and 3. Life is just really annoying right now.

Running
Since last week I’ve been having some knee pain that’s been really out of the ordinary… I got on the treadmill ran a little bit and it just didn’t feel good so I stopped.  After that I noticed that my knees have been hurting in a way that I can’t really explain, and every day I’m like: I should just go do some yoga or something and then I just don’t do it because…

Studying
I’ve been studying for my exams.  They aren’t for school, they are for work, which means that if I fail there will be an entire office of laughing people so I need to pass because I like to blend in.  I’ve been out of school for a long time and my brain is not liking the whole “sit down and read this stupid dry-material-filled-book and learn it” method.  I really do prefer the “guess C every time” method of standardized test taking but I have a feeling that could get me into some trouble.
[Yes, that is an iBook from like 2004 that lives on my Ikea desk.  I use it strictly for Google Reader and iTunes because it can’t handle much else, yet it keeps chugging along] 

Daydreaming
Which also leads me to daydreaming.  I can get through a half a chapter before something in my brain rears up and says, “you know what would be great for Christmas? Pink CEP compression socks… must go find them online because what if pink isn’t the right color for you?” And then yes, I add something to my ongoing Christmas list that started on October 1st.  It takes me a really long time to refine it so I truly know what I want and need under the tree.  Then it’s all like, “a vacation sounds nice right about now, where could we cruise to at the end of December?… is it more expensive to vacation during the holidays?  I always thought the Home Alone family was genius for going on vacation for Christmas…” It rages on.

I’d rather be snorkeling in an ocean full of sharks right now… Ok maybe not sharks, but big fish.

    Love this! My boyfriend is studying for the CFA right now, so I've had to semi-adapt into study habits with him. I may love him to pieces, but I'd rather be making a Christmas list…
