Not Dead Yet

Not dead, just busy. Busy with school, busy with household stuff which is becoming the norm. Also busy trying to lose this stupid weigh gain. I'm worried I'm not going to be able to get these few pounds off no matter what I do. I haven't been eating all healthy, all the time, but I'm not really eating any worse than I was before I gained the weight. I am pretty sure it's just from the birth control pills I take to control my endometriosis symptoms. I'm counting calories and using the elliptical, but not much seems to be helping. It's especially annoying since fall is creeping up and I can't fit in my favorite corduroy pants. And let's not even discuss my khaki slacks. Sigh.

On the positive side, they announced they are accepting internship applications for Conan's new show. That's my big, numero uno goal so now the task is to make myself the best internship candidate I can possibly be. I won't be eligible for a slot for a couple of years, but just knowing that the opportunity I most wanted is an actual option was very exciting. Need to get to work joining clubs, volunteering, etc. to pad out my resume and transcript.

My sleep patterns have become absolute crap lately. I'm not really having any trouble getting up for school, but I am not sleeping well, and I certainly have trouble dragging my tush out of bed on workdays. I remarked to Josh last night that I just don't think I'll ever be a morning person. No matter how early I get up each day, I'm still tired all day through until evening when I perk up and am ready to do stuff. Always been a night owl, and guess things won't be changing.

So yeah, not dead and now you're all caught up on what's been up with me.
