Some ABCs and the week ahead!

Moving + HTML/CSS class + Internship = one stressed out Kristen. I know I haven’t been the best blogger lately, but as I work to pack everything up (not to mention the stress of the past week of helping my boyfriend actually find a place for him (and me to crash) has been crazy, so I’ve spent a lot of my free time.

But, everything seems to be working itself out and after the next two weeks are over, everything should be in place. And although my shins haven’t been reacting well to running (well, I was stupid and ran a mile a week ago in 10 minutes–super fast for me)–I’m super excited for a Color Me Rad race with my sister in about two weeks. It’s just going to be crazy in the meantime.

Since my brain’s kind of too stressed out to function to come up with a more substantial post (I’ve got to work on defining real goals for myself for August and seriously get myself back on track–but more on that later), I’ve stolen this introductory ABC post from Amanda at Adventure Year since it’s been awhile since I’ve talked a lot about myself:

A. Attached or Single?

My boyfriend and I at a wedding last year. I make the loveliest faces, I know.

From a wedding over a year and a half ago now. He blogs over at The Active Gamer .

B. Best Friend?


This girl. Although we haven’t seen each other in months, we text each other nearly every day. Pic is from the Color Me Rad in Philly last year.

C. Cake or Pie?

Cake. Preferably ice cream cake.

D. Day of Choice?

Thursday. Favorite ballet class of the week because it kicks off my weekend.

E. Essential Item?

Ballet slippers and running sneakers. Don’t make me pick!

F. Favorite Color?

Pink and periwinkle.

G. Gummy Bears or worms?

Sour watermelon. Close enough, right?

H. Hometown?

A little town near Allentown, Pennsylvania no one’s ever heard of.

I. Favorite Induldence?

Cheese dip. I love it, and it seems to be the one thing I can’t give up. That and mac and cheese.

J. January or July?

July. Although this heat wave’s been murder, the cold is not my friend.

K. Kids

They’re pretty awesome. Sometimes I miss working at the pool and my camp buddies.

Life isn’t complete without?

Running and dance.

Marriage date?

Don’t have one. What kind of survey question is that?

N. Number of brothers/sisters?

Just one sister. At her graduation two years ago. Clearly I need to get better at taking up-to-date photos.

O. Oranges or Apples?

Oranges are yummier, although I do enjoy apples, too.

P. Phobias?

Needles. And shots. I cried the last time I needed shots. And I was 18.

Q. Quotes?

I’ve got a lot of favorites, but here’s one:

It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all – in which case, you fail by default.

J.K. Rowling

R. Reason to Smile?

There’s a lot. A great family, best friends, a loving boyfriend, the best dance teacher. I’m lucky to have them all.

S. Season of Choice?

Summer, even if I haven’t gotten to the beach yet.

T. Tag 5 people.

Not going to, but fill out this survey if you like. Or leave me an answer in the comments with an answer to a letter question of your choice.

U. Unknown Fact about me.

I’ve did pretty much ever sport/extracurricular activity when I was little, and failed at most of them.

V. Vegetable?


W. Worst Habit?

Breaking good habits. I’ve yet to be able to stick to a routine and keep falling behind in trying to establish one. Maybe one day I’ll find one that sticks. Like a stretching routine. Or running routine.

X. Xray or Ultrasound?

Never had an ultrasound, but Xrays are relatively quick and painless and I’ve had quite a few in the past year.

Y. Your favorite food?

Right now? Mac and cheese. Can’t. Stop. Eating. It.

Z. Zodiac Sign?

Gemini, but it’s been ages since I’ve followed astrology.
