Favorite Things: February 2-8, 2019

favorite things

Happy Friday! This is the last weekend for the big two days — the dissertation defense and public presentation. I have been a bundle of nerves these last few days, especially as I begin to work on my presentation. What am I going to say? What if it is boring? I will admit that it has been hard to stay calm and an emergency double-bacon cheeseburger from a new burger place was ordered last night. Do not judge me.

So — not much is planned for this week. I have some family coming up for the presentation, so the house will have to be cleaned, the presentation written, and hopefully some time spent outside to calm my frazzled nerves. Assuming all goes well, this will be the last weekend when someone asks what I’m doing, I’ll respond, “I have to work on my dissertation.” I hope to end it on a high note.

Here are a few favorites for this week:

Appropriate for my birthday week.

I agree. Getting a Ph.D. is harder than running a marathon.

I love Allie Kiefer.

And Liza Howard might also be my new hero.

An article about mental toughness and running, but I think it is helpful for all aspects in life.

This cracked me up: pretentious foodie mom declares child will never eat from kid’s menu.

Great article on Crossfit and pregnancy.

Happy a great and relaxing weekend!
