It’s oddly quiet out today. There’s hardly anyone on the streets, hardly any cars, and the CS studio has been very quiet for a Friday (usually its packed on Friday mornings – I assume everyone wants to look good for the weekend!) Maybe it’s becasue its 78 degrees out. Perhaps they are all at the beach… I’m jealous.
Last night, I took the Bootycamp SB class that I might start working for. This is a weird word to use to describe a workout, but it was refreshing. It was an evening class, so we sprinted, crunched, and squatted underneath the stars. It’s been a while since I worked out outside in the dark, but I got reminded how peaceful and rejuvenating it could be. I thoroughly enjoyed the class, and my buns are SO SORE today, I can hardly sit down! (This is a problem for me, because when I try to use the bathroom, it HURTS to sit down…. woah, TMI !! haha) I’m excited that I might be able to start being involved with this.
Question: Have you ever worked out under the moonlight? What’s your favorite time of day to work out?
Now. Sorry to be a bummer, especially on a Friday, but I just wanted to gripe about something real quick. Throughout my college career, (and right now too) I’ve lived with multiple housemates. I’ve never lived with fewer than 6 people. It’s nice to have the company, but there is JUST ONE THING that really gets to me. (Now please understand, I’m usually extremely mild tempered)
What really ticks me off makes me sad 😦 is when my housemates think it’s OK to steal/eat/thow away your food that you work so hard to buy. I’ve had this same problem no matter how many different groups of people I live with.
Like today, I noticed an entire bottle of salad dressing had been used up (at least throw it away if you’re gonna use it, don’t make ME do it! oh, and HOW ON EARTH do you use up an ENTIRE bottle in one day….????) I also noticed that my brand new container of hummus was half gone, and my sweet potatoes were gone too. Another housemate is missing an entire container of pasta salad and box of Wheat Thins. And no one is owing up to it.
WHY????? I just don’t understand why some people think that this is acceptable behavior? (I mean, I thought we were all adults here!) I just don’t understand – do they feel entitled to it? Do they not remember that they didn’t buy it? Do they just not care? Do they not feel guilty? Why can’t they buy their own stuff?
I like the foods I buy, and unfortunately, I’m not at the stage (yet) where I can afford to buy food for other people to just take. Don’t get me wrong; I would be MORE THAN HAPPY TO SHARE, as long as THEY ASK ME. I live on a bidget, and it kind of throws me off when other people just snake stuff. But more than anything, it just makes me sad, that there are people out there who feel no shame just taking stuff FROM THEIR OWN HOUSEMATES/FRIENDS. 😦 And it seems like I’m not the only one this happens to. I’ve discussed this with other people, and they have experienced rude housemates as well. Boo.
I apologize for being a downer, but I’m just bumming out right now, becasue my food supply is being taken from me! Has this happened to any of you? What do you do in these situations? What’s a diplomatic approach? (I’m really not a confrontational person) sigh…
But, I will leave you with a happy thought: At least my stash of Larabars are safe! 🙂
