Senior Pictures

I realized that because I was so busy with my job this summer, I didn’t even give you a recap of my senior pictures! I only posted a few!

I didn’t pay a professional photographer to take them, I just asked two of my best friends to do it with their fancy shmancy camera. Which they did. During part of the shoot it was pouring rain….which was super fun.

We’re doing another session this November when they come home for Thanksgiving! :)

Not too shabby in my opinion!

Senior Quote

It’s that time of year where I decide my senior quote (gasp!) and submit my senior picture (gasp!) and my baby pictures (gasp!) to all of the various committees that need them for senior-y thingies.

My senior quote is:

“What’s coming will come and we’ll meet it when it does.” -Hagrid

If there’s one thing you need to know about me, it’s that my love for Harry Potter is endless.

10 Reasons To Be Stoked

Do people still say stoked? Am I going to bring back a fad? Anywho…

SOOOO many awesome things are happening in the next couple of months and I’m so excited for it!!

1. I get to go visit two of my best friends at their college and stay with them for a weekend!

2. Halloween

3. Thanksgiving

4. Christmas

5. MY EIGHTEENTH BIRTHDAY! That’s right noodle heads, I’m going to be an adult! How fuhriggin weird is that? It’s really weird for me and I’ve been living in this body for (almost) 18 years now. My mother is also freaked out by it.

6. Basically all of the best holidays of the year. ;)

7. It’s the end of the quarter in a week which means my Chemistry grade will be back to a 100%….word of advice, don’t take chemistry if you suck at science. Because you will get a B in the class and it will possibly ruin your GPA.

8. Time to choose a senior quote (but I already have mine).

9. I have a hair salon appointment next week, prepare for a change!!

10. I’ve set my workout goals for the next year and it makes me unbelievably happy.

Boom, Clap! The Sound of my Thighs as I Run On and On and On

Hey lovelies! Yesterday I almost died…..in that I ran the longest run I have ever run. Pretty proud of myself for that.

Repeat: I ALMOST DIED. I AM NOT A LONG DISTANCE RUNNER. “Oh but Callan, you’re a soccer player you should totally be able to do this.”

UHM NOPE. Let me tell you why. Yes, my body is physically capable of running for hours and hours and hours (thanks conditioning and drill sergeant-like coach!) but I simply do not want to. I have a mental block that prevents me from running a long period of time. But I’m working on it. By bribing myself.

Bribe #1: New workout drink….but it didn’t turn out very good.

Bribe #2: This GORGEOUS VIEW! The run was up in the mountains and wove along above this gorgeous valley where I live. So so so so pretty.

Bribe #3: Dese shoes here and here and here.

Bribe #4: TO FEEL FIT.

Goal is to lose ten pounds….and still maintain my muscular legs and my butt. I like my legs and my butt and also: I DO NOT HAVE A THIGH GAP. And I like it that wayy. :) The goal is to be fit, not skinny. :)

Ps. I am so sore today I can barely walk…..

xoxo <3

Thoughts I Had While Running

running thoughts

Am I there yet?

Could these shoes BE ANYMORE UNCOMFORTABLE?

Daydream about the cute Nike shoes I will soon be getting. I could nike ID them.

Why the eff did I wear a sweatshirt? Note to self, don’t wear a sweatshirt while running. You will want to take it off after five minutes no matter the weather.

………..that cute boy from class shirtless………….

My muscles hurt.

I’m a whiner aren’t I?

How can my friends stand all this whining? I’m annoying myself with all the whining I’m doing mentally on this run.

Hmmm I should stop and take a scenic picture.

OOOH! I can post it on my blog later! And on instagram! Yipee!

Look how many miles I’m running….proud of myself.

Single Ladies came on! This is my jam!

4 miles is an unusually long ways.

This uphill section will kill me while simultaneously making my ass fabulous.

I want chocolate. And avocados. And pumpkin stuff.

I’m going to make pumpkin bars tonight and I’ll be damned if anyone tells me I can’t!

Oooh look! I’m almost done. Thank goodness.

50 minutes with nothing but my thoughts and music is a really long time….

I should totally post all of these thoughts on my blog tonight.

Oh look, I just did! ;) xoxo

Blogs YOU Should Read

As you can tell, I’m a blogger. But that’s a little obvious ;)

My little blog isn’t that well known, and mostly I just write it for myself. I write it hoping that eventually it’ll become popular and famous, but right now it’s just for me. I know that there are ways to grow my popularity…….but I’m lazy and I’ve tried to do those things and I got confused and freaked out and this whole internet domain thingy is A LOT harder than I originally thought.

Yay for internet.

ANYWHO, I thought I’d give y’all a little insight into the blogs that inspired me to blog in the first place! I read them pretty regularly and they’re super entertaining.

Fit Personality

Currently this is my favorite blog! It’s written by a girl named Katy and it originally started out to track her weight loss progress. Since then I guess it has morphed into more of a life style blog. But it’s still full of workout tips and tricks. I wouldn’t call it purely a health blog….more of a healthy living blog….not sure but I looooove it. I’m constantly in search of bloggers close to my own age! She is only three years older than me so I love that about it. It’s relatable.

Girl Meets Life

Written by a 20-something named Gracie Gordon. I’ve been subscribed to her blog for over a year now and I still read it almost daily. I love love love it. Maybe it’s because of my obsession with NYC, but she also is adorable.

The Londoner

Just followed this blog, but so far loving it! :) Another lifestyle blog, but this one is about London (duh!)

Simply Taralynn

Another new discovery! This girl is also adorable and I love how she posts about food all the time. Her dog Grumples is equally cute as she is.

Love Sex Pizza

Thiiiiiis blog is a little different than the ones listed above. It’s kind of like a book, but you only get a chunk a week. It started out as one story about a girl in NYC on Cosmopolitan’s web page! But since then, the original story ended and the author created this webpage. On it there is two stories that are being sent out weekly. On Tuesday a story about a girl in NYC is posted. And on Thursday a spin off from the original story is sent out..

I’m not sure if I’m making sense………..but trust me it’s good. It’s a couple months into the stories though so you’ll have to backtrack to figure out what’s happening.

How Sweet it Is

EVERYTHING DELICIOUS IS POSTED ON HERE. Go read it and prepare to be starving. I love it. I love food.

I decided to write this list today mainly because a reader commented on one of my recent posts and said how much they related to my blog. That comment honestly made my whole day. I’ve had people comment on  my blog before, but no one has told me how much they related to it!

It made me realize that some people may not have access to some great blogs….and I thought you all might want some to read! Other than when you read mine, duh ;)

Maybe someday I’ll be given a shout out on a famous blog? We shall see….but for now, you few readers and your kind words are enough for me. <3 Much love. Thanks for listening to my random ass rants.

xoxo
