Baby, It's Hot Outside

I got the short desk today. And you know when I'm saying that, it means that it's really short. I got this desk in the Blocker lab that is kind of cut in half horizontally, and the half that has the keyboard on it is lower than the part with the monitor. So my knees are hitting the keyboard part and my neck is strained from looking up to see the monitor. I can't figure out how to change it. Hmm, oh well.

We got out of pilates really early today (at least 20 minutes early), so I have lots of extra blogging time. But I can't think of what I want to say. I'm mostly very tired, and I need a nap today for sure. Tonight, I am doing something very exciting.

I'm going dancing.

For me, this is big.

It's not "normal" dancing, though, but it's two-stepping. My friend Austin has been trying to convince me to go to the Hall for weeks now, and I was very nervous about it. I mentioned this on the phone when I was talking to my mom yesterday, and she said

"You need to just suck it up and go, Katie."

Okay, mom. I'm going.

Apparently, by the end of the night, I'll be doing flips and stuff.

I think I just peed in my pants.

That scares me so much! I am very much a comfort zone person, and dancing is out of my comfort zone. Well, serious dancing, I mean. I can do crazy dancing when I'm in the apartment with my roommates and we're listening to something cheesy and funny. But serious dancing is beyond me. I've never learnt how, and I honestly think that is part of the problem. I guess tonight will be my night to learn!

I'll let y'all know how it goes.

For the past week or so, I have been getting out of bed and then leaving for class 30 minutes later. I look like I'm wearing pajamas (pilates attire), and my hair is messy (I don't do anything to it once I get out of bed) and I have no makeup on. It's awesome. Especially the no makeup thing. I probably look drugged or scary or something, but whatever. I can go home, take a nap, then wake up and take a shower and get to looking normal. It works for me.

I hope that once I become a mom, I don't let myself go. Carolyn, Kellie, Anna and I made a promise to each other years ago -- if one of us started letting ourselves go, we would give them a good talking to. It's all about accountability. But I'm all about comfort. I could just see myself getting into that baggy t-shirt and sweats thing. But for my husband's sake, I won't. :)

I listened to Christmas music yesterday. For some people, that's considered a sin. But for me... it's not. I love Christmas, and I love Christmas music! I listened to "Baby, It's Cold Outside" from the Elf Soundtrack as I walked to the bus stop yesterday. It was about 95 degrees outside, but it made me think of the cold weather that we'll get... eventually.

I want to go here.

Yeah I'm fresh out of stuff to say. I'm a little distracted because my sister Claire is talking to me online. I think I shouldn't try to multitask right now.

I hate the short desks! They're so annoying! ;)
