I made another attempt at Couch to 5k, Week One, Day One today. I got a little further, and I feel a LOT better afterwards… though, I admit I stopped to pet a cat for awhile.
I haven’t worked out in a week. I should have left for work already. I’ve been having ragefits over stupid things. Basically everything is stupid and I don’t want to do it.
My doctor put me on hormones a week ago. It’s not been fun.
(In better news, I bought a new bed and it’s like sleeping on a fluffy, supportive cloud.)
how is that “unmotivated”?? that psych student sounds like a real jerk.
I don’t think he’d heard me say that I went to community college for culinary arts, work in a restaurant, and don’t have a car until after he’d talked about ‘unmotivated’ people he knows, but basically I think there was a pretty big lack of understanding that some people don’t exactly have those opportunities.
The funny thing is, when I was in high school, I really wanted to go to WMU for Psychology, but received basically zero encouragement (and occasionally active discouragement) from family and even my career center’s counselor. Not to mention I had no money and a pretty big social phobia that made the idea of dorm life terrifying.
C’est la vie, I suppose.
Headed out to volunteer at the food bank again today. There was a great group of people last week, not counting the psychology student who “had to” be there for his program (helping people! imagine!) and who implied community college, service work, and not owning a car was “unmotivated.” I kept my temper down by telling myself he can’t imagine my life any more than I can imagine what it must be like to be able to afford to do “better.”
Anyway. This is probably my last time working in the garden. Starting next month I want to start working in the kitchen, which is actually just down the street from me.
