Me (when I have no homework):Bored. Miserable Lethargic. Life sucks. The world is devoid of fun. The universe is painfully dull. Breathing is tedious.
Me (when I have tons of homework):I SHOULD GO OUT FOR LUNCH AND THEN MARATHON MY TOP 5 FAVORITE TV SHOWS AND I HAVEN'T BEEN ARTISTIC IN A WHILE SO MAYBE I COULD SKETCH THAT CELEBRITY'S FACE AND THAT CELEBRITY'S ASS AND ALSO WHAT'S HAPPENING ON TUMBLR AND TWITTER AND FACEBOOK AND LIVEJOURNAL AND THERE MUST BE SOME FANFICTION I HAVEN'T READ SO I'D BETTER FIND ONE THAT'S AT LEAST 75K WORDS AND I THINK I'M HUNGRY AGAIN AND PACING AROUND THE HOUSE 63 TIMES SOUNDS LIKE FUN AND I WONDER WHAT MY FRIENDS ARE DOING AND IF THEY WANT TO HANG OUT
Don’t mind me, I just need to vent to the internet.
I’ve started this purification/detox program because I weigh much more than I am comfortable with, and I’ve realized I have an addiction to sugar, and worst of all, there’s been no physical change from me going to the gym for an hour every morning before work for the past 2 months.
So I figured I’d do this program, which I did two years ago when I was in Canada, but was definitely in much better shape even then because I am having a ridiculously hard time with this.
The first 10 days you can only eat fruits and veggies, brown rice/lentils, and any sort of pure oils/spices/vitamins/supplements/etc, but damn, do I want sweets. I feel like Ewan McGregor when he was locked in that room in Trainspotting, or Sherlock looking for his cigarettes (no offense to anyone with drug addictions).
The past few days I have been so angry, picking a fight with family members, video games, laundry, everything. Everywhere I look I see delicious stuff I can’t eat. LUCKILY we can re-introduce things like eggs and cheese and chicken and fish on the 11th day, but that is still not until Thursday.
So I’ve thought about quitting, but there’s a lot of reasons to keep going, first and foremost is I do actually want to get into healthy habits for the rest of my life.
I’ve been reading all the books on the sad and horrible state of nutrition America is currently in, and I’d like to get out while I’m still relatively young and can undo some of the damage.
But the thing is right now I don’t want to give up all those unhealthy foods. I know the damage they are doing but I am still craving them?! I am trying to bargain with myself like, well maybe I can eat chocolate ONCE a week. I have no problem giving up processed foods, and I hardly ever eat out and never crave fast food, but chocolate and coffee and even wine, which I drink maybe once a month, sound SO GOOD right now.
Vegetables are supposed to fill me up or something, but I am hating it. So I hope that’s the addiction dying and after these three weeks are over I won’t crave crap. BAH. WHY DOESN’T MY BODY NATURALLY CRAVE WHAT IS GOOD FOR IT?!
With the great DVD/BR and international sales of season one, and now the big ratings numbers for season two, this was a foregone conclusion. But now it is official: HBO has renewed Game of Thrones for a third season! Here is the press release HBO just sent out.
I do hope they split the third book into two seasons, though. It would be impossible to give the whole thing only 10 episodes.
I thought I read somewhere that if they did split it then they would end with the third season with the RW?! That would be so cruel! And it might lose more viewers that way, or they’d develop false hope and theories for a year, only to come back and have it all crushed. I don’t think they’d be that mean. I don’t know. I guess HBO will be more worried about viewership than I ever could be, anyways.
But yeah, SEASON 3! Can’t wait for all the BERIC!!
