There was a charity bottle-drive at the Library House last night. You brought your bottles, full of alcohol, emptied them accordingly, then donated the emptied to the Student Union. I actually lost my wine bottle mid-emptying, which was probably for the best, since I could have fun regardless and not be hungover for kickboxing. It’s win-win! Presumably, the bottle was adopted and consumed by some vagrant first-year and donated. Win-win-win!
I learnt many fascinating things, including things about book clubs. Did you know, Internet, that the cool book clubs barely involve books at all? And I have been declared cool enough to join these cool book clubs? Now I just need to find one! Or start one! Maybe I could advertise it, like, COME TO MY BOOK CLUB. THERE’S NO READING LIST, ONLY A WINE LIST. VODKA COUNTS AS WINE.
After Library Party, I went out dancing with Andrea and her friend Julie. I haven’t gone out dancing in a million years! I’d seriously forgotten how fun it is. I incorporated my bellydancing, just a little. It doesn’t work too much on the regular dance floor, but I was working the hip circles in, and Andrea assured me I didn’t look completely stupid. That’s all I hope for from any situation, really.
I went to bed at 3 last night, which is the latest I’ve gone to bed in years. How do people function like this? I’ve been making a habit of late nights, what with this blasted social life and all, so I may have to rethink my “always up at 7am” rule. It’s just getting ridiculous.
Coolest thing I learnt in kickboxing in a while. When pregnant, which exercise do you think suffers the most? Try to guess, but it’s totally mindblowing. OK, here it is: pushups! There’s no way to do a full pushup, because you’ll crush your little baby! I just found that so entertaining. You’d think situps or something like that, but it’s pushups. No one argue with me about this, by the way. I have no backing, a kickboxer who had recently had a baby just told me this.
I’ve decided to move towards sparring at some point, so I’m going to buy some boxing gloves and all the other gear. I’ll put up a picture of myself all decked out whenever I get it. If anyone takes a picture of me getting my ass completely whupped, I’ll also post that. Should be good times.
Holy crap, do I see sunlight? Can I leave the house without getting rained all over? I can put on clothes and everything, sweet-ass!
