1. A couple of days ago, a (male) coworker said to me, “This is probably a long shot, but you don’t happen to have any ibuprofen on you, do you?” It always fascinates me when I’m asked this question, because of course I have ibuprofen on me. I’m a girl, after all, and without that magical medicine, I am quite literally unable to function when my body’s coming to terms with the fact that it is, once again, not pregnant. I find it weirder that there are people who walk around in their normal life without ibuprofen on them than that I carry a small bottle with me pretty much at all times. Is this abnormal? If so, I blame my mother.
2. In a most tragic twist of fate, I got an e-mail containing my Zooma race day pictures last week, and the pictures, of course, turned out great. How does that even happen?! There’s one in particular that is, hands down, the best picture that’s ever been taken of me running, although, to be honest, there’s not really that much competition for that title:
Bahahahaha. Oh, the things you all missed in my early blogging days! Also spotted: New Balance 890s. I still miss you 😦
Anyway, I have zero desire to spend a single penny more on anything related to Zooma, so I will not be ordering any prints of my photos. The injustice of it all! Hopefully the photogs at the marathon will capture me looking as majestic as I look in one of my Zooma pictures, because I fully expect that I’ll be dropping some $$$ on marathon photos.
3. All right team. Real talk. What’s with the Internet’s recent obsession on whether you’re an introvert or extrovert? I’m mostly looking at you, BuzzFeed, but then the Huffington Post felt like they needed to throw their hat into the mix, and I’m just flabbergasted by all of this. Do we all need this much validation on our personality types? Can someone just write a comprehensive list, “53 Signs You’re Insecure About Who You Are As A Person And Need Justification For How You Feel About Things Via Every Internet Resource, Ever” so we can call it a day? Personally, I think most of these lists are a bunch of baloney anyway. For me, at least, they’ve done nothing but make me think I’m half extroverted, half introverted. And ultimately, do we all really need the Internet to tell us that some people like their alone time and some people don’t: that we’re not all exactly the same? Hey! What a novel concept!
Do you have things other than basic necessities you always carry with you? Like, for example, ibuprofen…
Are you an introvert or an extrovert? Even though I tend to be quiet, I really think I’m more of an extrovert than an introvert, if for no other reason than that I rarely enjoy alone time. Usually the only time I actively choose to be by myself is if I don’t want to deal with a particular person, not people in general.
