Life's Making Me Crazy

by - Monday, October 22, 2007

Again apologies for how much I have sucked at keeping up with blogs this week. I kind of feel like my life is spiraling out of control with work and midterms and Octapolluza.

I think the last Octapolluza update I had was Thursday where I was considering whether or not dancing was going to count as my workout. Well, I'm counting it, and I'm counting it for Friday night too. Saturday was another rest day though and strength training didn't happen last week because of everything else that was going on. The days I normally do it, I was either interviewing for jobs and studying for midterms.

I also broke the no-sweets rule over the weekend because I was celebrating getting a job offer. (And I'm pretty sure that's worth an ice cream sundae and a piece of my friends delicious homemade chocolate peanut butter pie!) Whoooo job offer! (I haven't accepted yet, I still have other interviews that I'm going to. Making sure I can explore my options and see everything that's out there.) But yea it's pretty exciting none the less.

I'm back on track with the sweets though starting this morning. I mean there's only like 1o more days in October and I'm going to finish out the month strong even though I've had some deviations in the past few days.

Last night I got my workout via some intramural flag football. At midnight. My friend really needed a girl to play on his co-ed team and I needed a serious study break, soooo I thought what the heck, I'm going to play some football. But that means I didn't get back to my apartment until 1 in the morning and then I wanted to look over my notes some more because I'm not really going to have much time to do that today. Needless to say, I didn't go to bed until really late.

As far as a quick weekend update:
Terps football blew the homecoming game in the last few minutes. Final score 18-17. Terrible play calling and an unfortunate safety led to the outcome.

Terps soccer. Whooo boy. Tied 1-1 after double overtime. Last 10 seconds of the game punctuated by a bench-clearing brawl. Check out the article here. Not a fan of the way the article paints the picture that it was our teams fault. Cal State Northridge played dirty the entire game. They were tackling our guys with their spikes up. We lost one of our best players for who knows how long. He was on crutches on the sidelines before half time and then for the rest of the game. Perhaps their most classy act was spitting on fans calling them D-bags and Mother Fer's. Their coach and two of their players got red cards. It tells you something when the coach gets a red....that he has no control over his team and teaches them not to play like classy soccer players, but like a bunch of thugs.

The brawl broke out with a few seconds left. We were setting up for a corner and one of our guys was in the box jockeying for a position with their defender....who was allll over him like elbowing him in the head/neck etc etc. Now remember this is after 110 minutes of them being all over the thing you know our guy has their guy in a headlock, the benches are clearly and their guys are going nuts all over our guys. Eventually the teams are pulled away from each other. Next thing you know the cops are strolling across the field. Unbelievable. This is soccer people.

I'll try to get some pictures up from the weekend soonish, and I'll try to catch up on blogs, but it's going to be another crazy week and I can't promise much.

    Congrats on the job offer! Good luck with the decision-making. And, good job on the no sweets. I have such a sweet tooth, I wouldn't do so well with that.
