Well, CrossFit is officially addicting

T-minus 4 days until my very first CrossFit competition and I've already registered for my second. I guess I'm a little over-zealous?

Every year CrossFitters across the United States begin to train and compete for the national games, and just like any sport they have to work their way up through victories. Starting tomorrow we will all compete in Sectionals in hopes of doing well enough to get to Regionals. I have a better chance of sleeping with Ryan Reynolds than I do of getting on our Regionals team! Yet I can't turn down the opportunity to compete with the other Elite athletes and try and prove myself. Maybe even get stronger? Better? Faster? The whole point behind CrossFit was to excel and dammit I will.

On a happy note... I am now acquainted with the blue band for my pullups. Boom.

Bye Social Life, It Was Nice Knowing You

Sometimes to take a big step forward you have to take a big step back to brace yourself for the leap and the landing. That's exactly what I'm doing with my life right now by taking an unpaid internship to gain the valuable skills needed to continue with my career in public relations.

Yesterday I had an interview with a second internship and against all luck, I got it. I actually rocked it so hard they said I'm "too talented" for the actual internship and they're going to create a specific task and title for me. Also, this company is my DREAM company so yesterday was a great big ego boost and success.

However, that now means I will be handling two internships at once. After my interview with Dream Company I came in to the office for my primary internship and my boss informed me we have about four major events coming up in the next two months we need to start planning for.

How will I balance both? I have no clue, but I'm going to have to do it.

Let's not forget I also CrossFit pretty regularly for a few hours a day so my life will basically revolve around busting my ass, in a literal and figurative way. This is good though because my ass needs to go down in shape anyway...

Hopefully I can balance it all and gain some great experience to make me a contender for a full-time position somewhere?

In the meantime I guess it's safe to say my social life is going to disappear in a few weeks... it was nice knowing you.
