Today was busy busy. I was working on two big projects at work that were due today and tomorrow, and then I got a third semi-last minute assignment. I’m usually not one to stress out too much, but since I’m new, I’m doing things really slowly. And then there was a miscommunication and I had to start my task all over again! I didn’t even have a second to enjoy my lunch because I had to shove it in between phone calls and spreadsheets. But just when I thought I might need to spend the night in the office, three people came over and helped me finish everything! It’s so nice to work in a team-oriented office. Despite the hectic day, I do love being busy at work and the hours flew by, which means I’m now closer to Friday. But, enough about work.
So, I went to my first Duke spinning class today. It wasn’t bad or good, just really different than my Northeastern classes. The Northeastern gym was intense and strict, but the spinning classes were serious and the equipment and space were really nice. Duke spinning was crammed in a corner of the basement, one of the speakers wasn’t working, and it was very casual – i.e. people were texting during the class!!! The instructor was really good, but we did three long loops and I prefer doing something different for each song. I also felt like I didn’t challenge myself as much because the class was so informal. But, it felt great to be back on the bike and I’m sure there will be a lot of variation based on the instructor.
After days of fun food and drinking, it was time for a salad night. It was loaded with good stuff though: a masala burger, sweet potatoes, and chili feta with peaches and hummus toast on the side – it hit the spot.
Any fun plans for the weekend?
I actually don’t have any at all, so I’m curious to see where the weekend will take me!!
