Derailed again (Day 5 of finals: bonus edition)

While everyone is already done and celebrating by drowning away their failures with alcohol, I have the distinction... no the privilege of having one more test to take. Today I'll take on probably the most important test I'll have to take during my college career.

So why did I say I was 'derailed again?' Well in multiple ways. First off, the mere fact that I have to take another test on Friday is pretty messed up. The fact that I have to go into work before that test is even more messed up. Then, yesterday... as a way to relax before taking the test, we (Wayne, Rich, Han, Chris and co.) went to a Korean karaoke place, I have successfully lost my voice singing 'a whole new world,' 'kissing you,' 'breaking free,' and more Mariah Carey than I wish to admit. This part isn't that much of a negative so we'll consider it a positive on the week. I did a carb up yesterday as a means of preparing for a long run this morning (16k was the target) and uh... let's just say my run got derailed more than anything else.

This morning was not a good run at all. There's a subject that I've actually discussed with another blogger (whom I won't mention because the topic is kind of embarrassing perhaps) about, quite thoroughly actually. It's the idea of having to go to the bathroom in the middle of a run. Well, let's just say the combination of 'woorijip' (아주 싸요), half a dozen bagels, and half a jar of peanut butter does not agree with you very well when you're trying to run. I felt pretty odd at around the 1 mile marker, felt pretty much on the brink of disaster around the 2 mile marker, but I decided to man up and at least finish the 5k lol. No incident, but it we'll leave it at... it was probably for the best that I stopped after the 5k or I would've been like the motivational poster of the runner that says 'priorites, he has none.' Anyway, last day at Dodge, last day as a varsity athlete in an NCAA school (it's so messed up that I can say that truthfully), and last day as a junior. I'm not sure how I should feel. Probably worried and anxious since I have a test in about 5 hours, but (un)surpringly my main concern right now is sodium bloat... pretty messed up I'll admit haha. Oh yeah, the food porn will resume... uh June 5th. Seriously, I'll get off the plane and go have a bowl of real beef noodle soup just to appease certain readers, and it'll probably cost me around $2. It makes midtownlunch's $10 rule look like a joke.
