In a shocking and unexpected turn of events, I have nothing to complain about.
I am so happy that I could cry. Prepare to puke in your mouth a little bit, because it’s about to get annoying.
This week I got to enjoy the legendary queso from Kerbey Lane. It has a layer of guacamole in it!!! Match made in dining heaven.
For better or worse, there is one about two miles from my house. That could end both deliciously and tragically (for my pants, not my taste buds). Oh well.
On Monday, I started my official half marathon training for the Shiner Half. I took a couple of weeks off because I basically couldn’t handle moving and changing jobs (sooo weak) and any other task, but I’m excited to be back.
Thankfully, I have a few weeks to get my legs back under me before things start getting serious. I’m so excited to be excited about running again. I feel like it has been so long. I am beyond excited about running in this city once the weather cools down. For now, I’m still on the treadmill, but at least it’s one inside the super nice Rec Centers at UT. There are four gyms just on the main campus. My brain has still not adjusted to being on a large campus at all. Hopefully, I can stick to lifting weights 2-3 times per week along with running. I’m not great about mixing things up exercise-wise, but since it’s on a spreadsheet (a different spreadsheet apart from the strict running plan) now, I have no choice but to do it.
In other good things, I had the opportunity to eat at Mellow Mushroom across from campus. I had the most phenomenal salad ever. I never thought I’d be glad I ordered salad over pizza, but it was incredible. It was spinach with candied pecans, apples, feta, bacon, and balsamic vinaigrette. Such good bacon. I thought I had died and gone to heaven. Just look at this beauty:

Mine didn’t have the dried cherries, because eww. But, my boss said they were amazing.
Also, yesterday, we got cable and internet. Bardot is super excited.
She stores her joy in her neck fat, that’s how you can tell there is a large quantity of it. Don’t use her face as a gauge.
