A cactus!

Can cacti hurt cats? And do they get very big? I know Home Depot. usually carries little baby ones that are super cute, but I don’t know anything about them!

Herbs! Wheatgrass (for wheatgrass shots!), basil, mint, etc. Saves a lot of hassle and it’s really handy!

I don’t really have anything to use herbs for at the moment, but I could start an herb “garden” to bring back home (I’ve always wanted one). Plus for the time being, they’d make our room smell fresh. The problem will be having someone take care of it while I’m overseas! Can you get seeds or small starter plants at pretty much any gardening/home improvement store?

aloe vera!

Ooh this is another great idea! Aloe vera is one of my favorite plants (weird as that may be). I don’t know much about it either though!

Hens and chickens. They are this little succulent that is almost impossible to kill. They are great. For that matter any succulent is a good option.

Okay, not going to lie, when I read this, I pictured: 

Google quickly informed me that I was mistaken, and I LOVE the actual plant! Hopefully, Ill have lots of green around the room soon! 

Thank you so much everyone! These are all great! I’ll post pictures when I finally get around to it (hopefully next week as my weekend is already full).

Get out and run.

Do not worry about the rest.
Make running a lifestyle. A daily habit, like brushing your teeth. If you run 300+ days a year, every year, for several years, good things will come your way. Start now. Doesn’t matter if you are 16 years old or 66.

If you want to be a decent runner you must get out and run; the rest is just noise.

Get the running in first— that is the foundation. Then: Eat mostly good stuff. Get enough sleep. Stretch if you want to— or don’t. Lift if you like lifting. Cross-train if it makes you happy. Wear minimalist shoes or big bulky ones, whichever you prefer. Listen to music when you run, or not. You can carry water with you on a long run, or you can go without. If you want to do a core routine, then do it— but first you must get out and run.

Run on trails, or streets, or on a treadmill, whatever works for you. Run slowly. Run quickly. Run up hills. Run in the rain. Run in the snow, the heat, the cold. Run into the wind. Run on the days that you do not feel like running. Run on the days that you can’t wait to get out and run. Run with friends. Run alone. Run races. Run in the country. Run in the city. Run in parks. Run when you feel happy. Run when you are depressed. Run when you have a ton of energy. Run when you are feeling like shit. Run when you feel good. Run in the morning. Run at night. Run before work. Run after work. Run.

2. When did your last hug take place?

On my best friend’s birthday after I gave her her present! (August 27th)

21. Who was the first person you talked to today?

I talked to my mom on the phone first. I’m sick, and she wants me to go to the school nurse practitioner. 

In person I talked to a guy named Bennet. He’s in my History class, and he sat near me in chapel. We talked about- wait for it- the stupid amount of reading we have for class.

35. If you could move somewhere else, would you?

At the moment, no probably not. I’m settled into my school, and all of my friends are here. After I graduate, most definitely.

Thanks, Anon!
