I’m frustrated. Extremely annoyed. Completely over technology. Which is a bit of a problem considering I’m a few weeks into classes that involve nothing but computers. My computer hates me.

Yesterday afternoon I headed out with a goal to run my 3.1 miles for the Christmas Virtual 5K race and I made it…I didn’t exactly love it at first but I made it.
