Car damage and skybox views!

And it happens again, it has been over a week since I have posted, I want to be more consistent with my blogging and commenting not because I have to but because I want to. I enjoy reading blogs and taking a peek into others lives. But this prelim preparation is making me crazy. To get some quality study time in the evening I have shifted my gym time yet again. I was well settled in my evening schedule to exercise but that leaves me with very little time to do some quality work. Hence the change. I have been waking at 5:45 am in the morning to get to the gym and if you know me, it is a big deal for me. I am NOT a morning person.

It is funny how your mind play games with ya in the morning. Procrastination seems just so easy!I need every ounce of motivation in the morning to subside the inner voice that tells me to pull the covers back on and go back to sleeping like a baby!

I have managed to wake up on two weekdays straight in a row now, but the real test is going to be tomorrow. We will see!

In other news, just like Averie, my car got damaged by a hit and run too! And that too at my work parking lot, so no teenagers involved here just grown, mature adults who I think should have had the decency to leave a note. The damage is nothing severe but I hate it when people prefer being so uncourteous like that.

I was mad like really really mad and since there are no cameras installed in the parking lot, there is nothing much that can be done!!!
{RANT OVER} and calm down!

In other news we had the fantastic opportunity to go to the East skybox of the Neyland football stadium at UT. I have yet to watch a foot ball game here, but until then the spectacular views from the skybox should do!

Tennessee Vols gave football the very famed quarterback Peyton Manning!

My knowledge about American football is very limited so don’t hate me, but I am making an effort!

The CLAMS i.e. my girlfriends and me!

Sorry for the poor lighting!

Well in case you are wondering why I was here ,every year my graduate program holds our annual orientation for the incoming class in fall here. Pretty cool if you ask me, the only problem being that the food sucks big time!

Q. Do you go to watch college football games? I want to go to one this time!!!

Q. Did you anything fun this weekend? Me I just spent a lot of time meeting a self inflicted deadline for my prelim preparation!

  1. So sorry about your car…I’ve had two people hit me and take off in the last 6 months! It drives me nuts.

    I love reading and commenting on blogs too and wish I could do it more often but I don’t have enough time in the day! Good luck getting in your study time! You will do fantastic!!

  2. Bummer about your car, I hate it when someone causes grievous bodily harm to Tango (that’s my car.., I figure if I named it we’d bond & look after each other better…, well., that’s the plan anyway)
    Don’t usually get up to much in the way of exciting non work related ‘stuff’ as I work weekends, this weekend I had 2 weddings going off at the same time in 2 of the function centres, one wedding was amazing, beautiful loving people & that was pretty special to be part of – kind of left you with the “Awwwhhh” factor:)
    Have an awesome week Priyanka πŸ™‚
    Cheers Anna

  3. Great job with the gym and so sorry to hear about your car- that is totally annoying! Ah! I am a college football fan!! I went to Penn State so its basically a requirement for me to be a football fan. This weekend- lots of great stuff- lots of relax, times with friends and family πŸ™‚

  4. grr too bad about your car! I hate stuff like that! A few weeks ago we were trying to change our windshield wiper and had someone at my boyfriend’s mom’s apt complex helping us. He let go of the wiper blade by accident and it came down really hard on the windshield and made a huge crack! I was sooo mad and he offered to pay for it but of course we haven’t heard from him after we sent him the invoice…
    I’m not a huge football fan which is bad since I came from a Big 12 school…I just can’t get into it!!

  5. I hear ya! I totally want to be a more active blogger/commenter because it gives me joy but man, it’s really hard fitting all of that in! I’m so glad to hear others are in the same boat. And um, not cool about your car. I imagine that karma ain’t gonna be pleasant there πŸ™‚

  6. Thank you for the beautiful comment on my blog! You are beautiful too by the way. Good luck with all that you’ve got on the go! And keep reading πŸ™‚

  7. Indeed I DO go to college football games, I mean I live in Columbus and OSU football is out LIFE!!! πŸ™‚ No joke.

    Sorry about your car. That same thing happened to me about three months ago and I was furious. Then I realized getting mad wasn’t doing anything so I just thought positively and said, “I suppose it could have been worse…”

    Regarding your comment on my blog, I have not tried tofu mayo, but I would think it’s a great substitute for real mayo! More healthy fats, fiber, and phytonutrients, perhaps? I wonder if it would give me gas like actual tofu does….that’s how I find out whether a product is highly processed.

    I hope you get up tomorrow and stay motivated!! We’re holding you accountale πŸ™‚

  8. Ugh, I’m having car problems too -not fun!

  9. Priyanka you are speaking to procrastinator extraordinaire!

    I am a pilates personal trainer, a journalism student and a food blogger. I get up at 5:15 to welcome the day before gym time starts (I am a morning person fortunately) but then suddenly it’s the end of the day and I’ve blogged, I’ve worked out and I HAVEN’T done my uni work. Blogging and gyming are my procrastinations…and now that I’ve found your blog, so aligned with my own food interests, I fear university slides further down the scale!

    Hope you had insurance for your car πŸ™‚

  10. Priyanka, that’s awesome that you’re on the morning train! When I lived in Ottawa, I used to race to be at the gym before my crush (who is now my husband), so I think that extra incentive to be at the gym at 5:29am really helped! A little healthy competition never hurts. Now, we have different schedules and he gets up every morning at 4:20am to squeeze in a workout before he starts work. I don’t know how he does it, but he is chirpy as a bird in the mornings! Once you start the early rising routine, I think you feel like you are in on some morning secret. The morning is a really magical time.
    I’m sorry to hear about your car! I can’t believe that anyone could sleep at night after damaging someone else’s vehicle :/ Hoping for better luck for you from hereon in!

  11. So sorry about your car!!! Good luck with your morning gym plans!

    I am sure you will succeed πŸ™‚
