The one with two running things, two sights and two dogs

Two running things:

Saw this quote and loved it:


I definitely think I am a better ‘me’ because I am a runner… And I am sure that anyone who has encountered me when I haven’t run for a few days would agree 🙂


I’ve had a busy few days getting an assignment handed in and Curtis being the sweetheart that he is sent me Eminem’s new song to motivate me:


Result: I LOVE IT. Okay so I love all things Eminem but I really thought it was not only a great song for powering me through my assignment, but also for running:

Cause I worked my butt off now
It’s a subject that I don’t know how to shut up about
Cause I stuck it out…

I am phenomenal
With every ounce of my blood
With every breath in my lungs
Won’t stop until I’m phenomenal
I am phenomenal.

Thank you Eminem, for not only using one of my favourite words multiple times in your song (phenomenal), but also for making it relatable to both my studies and to my running. He is just so considerate like that.

Two beautiful sights during my run:

-A flower during my run:


– And palm trees + sunshine…. Sydney’s winter is not too shabby 😉



What I have been up to (I know you are all dying to know 🙂 )….I went to one of my best uni friends’ house yesterday for a beastie study sesh and she cooked me the most amazing persian feast (you may have noticed that I am smart and mainly make friends with people who can cook… ): 


Please take a moment to admire the mountain of rice. I made a substantial dent in that bad boy.

Anyway I handed it in which is very exciting, first essay of the trimester done and DONE! 🙂 

And to finish up this post on a completely random note as usual, two dogs that made me LOL:

Friend’s dog- named Goose. I honestly could not think of a more perfect name for it. So hilarious.


And this stylish dog that I creepily took a photo of on the street. Me and bestie LOLed at this one for a good ten minutes. That face… those pink ears… too much. 




Tell me two things about your day! 

What are your pets’ names? – No pets right now for me but in the past… A cat called Milly, a fish called Smoochie, a calf called Cecelia (having a calf is prob a little more normal in NZ…) a miniature pony (briefly) called Merrylegs, and two more fish called Flippy and Sooty. My family’s current cat is called Molly.

Fave cuisine? – I am thinking Persian is my new fave cuisine…. Hint hint Yalda… feel free to invite me to live with you 😉

    Goose!!! OMG that pic is so amazing!!

    I just listened to that song – it’s not half bad! It definitely might end up on one of my running mixes. Does he have a new album coming out soon?
