Gah! Totally rolled my left ankle today on my afternoon run, and it isn’t feeling pretty. That’s probably the extra karma added to the absolutely terrible yet delicious breakfast that I had this morning, consisting of a buttery/fluffy scrambled egg plate, bacon and mini-wheats cereal. I finished up with some soy sauce chicken that I put way too much salt in, and not enough sugar….which is ok because I used it to make soy sauce eggs later, so hopefully tm that salt will have seeped in nicely into my delicious chicken products.
I also am definitely lactose intolerant. I had been under the belief that I was losing my intolerance and had been chugging milk like crazy, about 4 L a week (not as much as 4L per 3 days like before, but a lot more than 4 L per month that I was at last year)…and it definitely has hit me. I am running to the bathroom constantly and mourning my lost hope in drinking the delicious cow juice. Am definitely sad about that.
Other than that, I am completely and utterly behind on schoolwork. At least I am not behind on everything, I feel pretty happy about my running routine and despite my lack of left ankle, I am pretty stoked about what running is giving me- new challenges.
I am also super stoked about a new project that I will be doing with my prof, looking at the clinical psychology behind adolescent deviance that turns into gang membership and activity. I REALLY want to do this for a PhD, it would be my grand dream to research this, I love this stuff so much. I really hope this turns out. If it doesn’t, I am taking a year off to build my CV and research this stuff and then reapplying for the PhD again. I really want to do this! My current project is alright, but this one is mindblowingly exciting for me. :0
