So, last week I thought that it was fall. Why is it now ninety degrees again? I'm sufficiently confused. I thought the days of sweating your bodyweight were over, but I was apparently wrong. Now, this may not be a big problem for some of you non-sweaty people out there, but that is not the case for the rest of us. I don't understand why my body chooses to sweat when the weather is anywhere over seventy degrees. My mom says I should just embrace it because I'm "sweating out impurities," but it's hard to have that positive attitude when I'm worried about getting pit-stains down to my waist. Additionally, pretty much everything makes me sweat.

Things that make me sweat:
1) drinking coffee. Sure, I could stop drinking coffee, but I'm not going to. Like right now, for example, I'm sitting on my couch drinking a cup of coffee and just sweating profusely.

2) moving. And by moving, I mean any time my body is moving, I'm probably sweating. You should see me at the gym. Wait, no. I hate when people see me at the gym because I'm always that sweaty girl who sweats through every article of clothing on her body. I go to these exercise classes at the gym and I'm pretty much the only person that gets super sweaty. I DON'T GET IT! Other people in the classes come in from work, exercise, and then just go back to work because they look the same as they did coming in. But me? I'm so drenched in sweat I have to reserve time to shower before I do ANYTHING else. I'm even embarrassed to go to Walmart after I exercise.

3) typing. Currently, my palms are sweating. Maybe it's because I've become such a speedy typer. Seriously. I remember middle school when I could only get like 30 wpm (that means words per minute, for those of you who didn't have to take typing classes in middle school). You should see me know. I'm a typing fiend!

4) sleeping. Even when I sleep without covers, I wake up sweaty. Ugh.

5) cooking. This is probably a semi-normal time to sweat. Standing by a stove or oven would make anyone sweaty, right? Then why do I literally drip sweat from my body when I cook. Sometimes I'm so hot I just open the refrigerator and freezer and stand there, letting the cold air freeze the perspiration to my face.

6) being outdoors. And I don't just mean being outdoors in the summer. I mean being outdoors at all, in any season. Maybe it's because I live in moist Missouri.

Anyway, I have to end this post because my computer exerting heat and making me sweatier than I already was.

The end.

hello again.

It seems like every blog I post is apologizing for my lack of blogging. I remember the days when I was an efficient, timely blogger; back in the days of retirement and apple butter. Well now those days are gone (at least for another 50 years or so).

But, I vow to at least attempt to be more punctual in my blogging. I mean, if my law school and med school friends can do it, then I can too!

Let me start by saying how I am insanely happy that I'm NOT in law school or med school. I mean, no offense to those of you who are, but I just don't think it is for me. I hear all these stories about killer tests and job interviews and it makes me sick to my stomach. Literally. Then, you all tell me how you never get to sleep and it makes me throw up in my mouth a little. You all know how much I love and need my sleep. I couldn't do it. But I'm glad you guys can. Mad props!

Anyway, here is a little update on my life:
1) I think I'm starting to like chocolate! Isn't that crazy!? My roomie made brownies this weekend and I actually like them! I mean, the aftertaste is still terrible, but I like them while I'm eating them. I know, I'm practically a grown-up now!

2) Speaking of being a grown-up, I'm now 25 years old! I'm probably over a fourth of the way through my life!! I'm half-way to 50! Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesh!

3) I got another job! Shocker, I know. I mean, how could I go through an entire year with only 2 jobs?! Now I have 3 and I'm sufficiently busy. Something must be wrong with me, but I still get my 8 hours of sleep every night, so I'm doing okay. And before you start telling me how I overbook myself, you should consider the state of my bank account, which is very bleak.

4) I also discovered that I like mustard! Man, I really am a grown-up! I really like the kind of mustard with all the little mustard seeds in it...maybe it's called beer mustard? I'm not really sure, but I love how the seeds explode in your mouth when you bite them. And if you listen really carefully, you can hear them "pop." Speaking of popping, the other day at work, I was giving some kids Rice Krispies and we were listening to them snap, crackle and pop and I asked them if they wanted sugar on their cereal, and do you want to know what they said? They said "no!" Can you believe it?! I always put sugar on my Rice Krispies and I'm 25 years old! It really caught me of guard. Kids these days.

Well, that's about all that I've got right now. Basically everything else in my life is still the same. I still like ice cream, I still go to class, I still do homework, I still have brown hair and short fingernails, and I'm still really bad at video games. A few days ago I was playing football with one of the kids at work (and by "playing" I mean I was attempting to play catch with him, but was mostly just flailing my arms and trying to catch the ball) and after a while, he told me we could play video games instead if I wanted since I'm not very good at football. Unfortunately, I am not very good at video games, either. So after a few minutes of playing with me, he told me I could just watch him play. Oh well. Isn't it nice to know that some things will never change?
