Have I really not posted since Monday?! I knew that it had been a couple of days, but geez. I'm so sorry that I have been such a slacker.

I am still resting my knee because I don't want to mess it up even more by running on it too soon, so I'm gonna wait until its 100%. Me (being the stupid, stubborn girl that I am) decided that it would be a good idea to run 3 miles on Tuesday and on Wednesday at work, I was almost in tears by how bad my knee hurt. I have been icing it, wrapping it, resting it, giving it some good ol TLC. I just hope it gets better soon!!

Honestly, I have nothing really of interest to post...which is why I guess I have been avoiding it. But here are a couple of key points that have happened over the course of the week:

  • Mike came back in the picture...sort the form of some weird and confusing texts.
  • Lucas went out of the picture...mainly because of the above mentioned...and because he is staying at school for the summer to play ball and attend summer school.
  • I got a call for a phone interview tomorrow from a really awesome school in Charlotte, NC!! Im going to be brushing up on my interview questions all day today.
  • I played pool last night, totally killed the first game...then got slaughter for the next two.
  • Got tatted up
tat 001

haha. just kidding, its fake. I got WAY to bored yesterday. But my sister pointed out that that would be a cool place for a tattoo, and I think I agree. I have always wanted to get a tattoo of an OWL (because that is the symbol of education) and possibly the words "carpe noctem" (thanks for the heads up Mica, yes thats what a meant...typo! haha) which is Latin for seize the night. I liked the phrase "carpe diem" but thought that was too cliche...and night goes with owls, so its perfect!

  • Of course I made some wraps:

My mom bought me some groceries, so I got the good expensive kind of pickles, that I would never buy on my own :)

Since I really have nothing else to post and I just did the 25 things about myself...I thought it would be fun to do an "interview" type post next, but with different questions from you guys. A "FAQ" post, if you will. Hey, everyone else has done it...ITS MY TURN! So ask me anything! You can e-mail me or leave me a comment with your question if you would like. Whatever floats ya boat.

Time for breakfast and another cup-o-crack...errr...I mean coffee.

Lots of Love, <3 Ems.

i love that your splurge is expensive pickles!
Good luck on the interview!

Mica said...

Good luck on your interview and so sorry about your knee!

I've heard that the ankle (specifically right there) is one of the more painful places to get a tattoo because it's not very fleshy and there are a lot of small bones. I didn't feel very much pain, but my mom said it hurt a lot.

(Just so you don't get a misspelled tattoo--did you mean "carpe noctem"?)

Megan said...

GOOD LUCK on the interview... you'll rock it! =)

Oh dear, boys :/ I hope they don't cause too much stress! Well done for getting the interview, and good luck :) That would be a really cool place for a tattoo but I'd be too squeamish to get one there - needles+back of ankle = ack! Very cute design though.

Stef said...

YAY interview! I hope it goes well, but you are so charismatic and such a smarty-pants I'm sure you'll have no problem! That owl tattoo is perfect...time to get a real one lol! And carpe noctem is a brillz idea!

Amy said...

And an owl tattoo WOULD be very cute.

I am so excitied for you and the job interview.
Glad you're taking care of your knee-with just a little bit of rest and lots of TLC, you'll be back to running in no time. Maybe just some yoga for a little?
I may have missed this, but who is Mike?

My interview question for you? Where were you born? Where have you lived throughout your life?

Anna said...

Congrats on the interview! You'll rock it, I'm sure!

Your tattoo sounds awesome. I've always wanted one but need something (like yours) that's totally meaningful, appropriate, and not a cliche!

Meg said...

Hey girl! I love that 'tattoo' - you should go for it - get a real one! I'm SO happy you got a call for a job in Charlotte, that's exciting! I'm sure the interview will go awesommeee!

Hope your knee feels better soon - it's so frustrating when injuries prevent you from doing the stuff you wanna do, ya know?!

Love, Meg
