My attempts at being fitter

Me, Nathan and Mom went on a 1.25 mile jog last night. I haven't worked out hardly at all this summer and it was hard! Two days ago we jogged 1 mile without stopping. I think it took 12:51, which is reallllllyyy slow. Ugh. We didn't stop to walk. If we could, I wanted to go 1.5 miles without walking but we just stopped at 1.25. We went late, it was dark, and there are no streetlights in our dumb neighborhood, and it's muggy and humid, but it was fun. I run best when I'm talking so I was blabbing the whole time to my mom and brother.



I want to run a 5k so bad! I think we're going again tonight and we'll try to go 1.5 miles. When we got home we all went swimming, it is soooo nice to have a pool! It was so refreshing. They have all these cool Color runs, and Glo runs and Halloween runs and I want to do one so bad! One mile seems like such a long way though, and 3.1 sounds impossible to me right now! But I'm going to keep progressing!

Schtuff

I just purchased the 50mm 1.8 on Amazon, a brand new one. And I'm kind of feeling stupid about getting it. I should be saving my money. But I really have been wanting it. I know I don't need it. But I think it will take my photography to the next level. Plus, from reviews and stuff, it's a great portrait lens and my friends want me to do their senior photos before I leave! It will probably be here soon, I can't wait!

This is really bad but I'm already eyeing this 8mm fish eye lens. Need to start saving again!

I'm all signed up and registered for my classes for the Fall! Eek! I'm leaving in less than a month! Like what the heck?!

Sometimes I feel so happy about going to Rexburg that I cry tears of happiness. Seriously. I cannot wait. There is an apple orchard. On campus. Right next to one of my classes. And it's open til the end of November. 50 cents a pound. LIKE CAN I ALREADY BE THERE?

oh and there's MOUNTAINS! I can't wait to go on hikes! it is so flat here!

Studio C is having live tapings! I wish I lived in Utah so I could go!!

I literally idolize the Pioneer Woman. Like is there anything she cannot do? Seriously.

Miami Zoo
















We had fun at the zoo today. It was so hot. We rented a 6 seater bike and drove all around. It was quite a sight. The gorillas were so cute, it was signing with its trainer and pounded his chest!

10 Random Things

1. I danced ballet for seven years, until I tried out for my middle school's soccer team and did that instead. Now I don't do either, so there you have it.

2. I've never lived in a state with all four seasons. (that I can remember, I was too little when we lived in Utah and Oklahoma)

3. Top five places I want to visit : New York City, Ireland, London, Australia, Paris

4. I love movies and TV shows from or based on the 1920s to 1960s.

5. I want to work at DisneyWorld. The last time I was there, I cried when I was leaving.

6. My favorite superheroes are Spiderman and Superman. I love their nerdy alter egos, Clark and Peter. 

7. In five years, I want to be living in a place where I can travel by walking, bike riding or by public transportation and not need my own car.

8. I'm related to Princess Diana. She's my ever-so-great aunt on my mom's side. So technically the new prince is my cousin. :) 

9. It freaks me out how accurate my horoscope is. I mean I'm not superstitious and all that, but it really is so true!!

10. I've always been self conscious about my eyes but they're a feature I get complimented on often.

I took this from Hannah.
