How is August treating you so far? It was rainy and gross all day Thursday, so August was definitely not off to a good start for me. I also was told not to come in for my internship yesterday since they knew it would be really slow an didn’t want me to just sit there. Haha! (sounds familiar). In other news I started reading the Aeneid (by: Virgil, translated by Robert Fitzgerald) for AP Latin next year (or this year…whatever). We just have to read the whole book and take notes (just bullet pointed summaries of events in books 1,2,4,6,8, and 12). So it is not too bad. Then right when school starts we will begin working with the Latin translation…should be fun :P. The Common App is finally up! Now I can start seriously working on my college applications! (I have been so mad that they wait this long to put it up. School is starting in a few weeks; so much for getting things out of the way. But I am planning on making this weekend great. I think I will go on a bike ride, do some cooking, cleaning, and cross other stuff on my to-do list. I want to be productive and hopefully that will happen!

Blog Posts I loved this week:
Are you truly living up to you full potential? Or are you just doing your usual “best”?
I thought this report was pretty interesting. There really are only a few “Big Brands” that drive and hold the mass food market. (With sugar and lies).
It is okay to say no. You don’t have to be perfect all the time.
I have never waitressed but this is really interesting. Be nice to your waitress/waiter.
Do you find yourself unable to sleep during a full moon?
Such a great list; love this!
Are you able to stay present and focus on what really matters in life?
#7, 12, and 15. Which are you guilty of?
A few things I loved about my week or am grateful for:
+ My iHerb buys! (although I had 1 disappointment. The NY Superfoods Inc. Gator Grit peanut butter I bought was a no go. I opened the lid and the foil safety seal was already about 3/4 of the way off. I didn’t feel safe eating it so I emailed iHerb for a replacement and am still waiting for a reply. Sad day :(.
+ 54 days (and going strong) of being (eyebrow and eyelash) trich free.
+ I love the new workout I created on Wednesday and my two weekly HIIT sessions went really well this week. My endurance is getting better and better. I think it helps that I read and catchup on my bloglovin’ feed while doing it. Makes the time fly by!
+ Pink Nail Polish. I love Clinique nail polishes, they stay on forever! But I still only ever paint my toenails. Painting my finger nails just doesn’t work out.
Any good posts from the week you want to share?
What language did you take in High School (or College)? Did you like it and continue it through to AP level?
Do you hate painting your fingernails too? I just use my hands to much, no matter how strong the polish, it chips so quickly!
