I participated in this link up a while ago and then stopped. But when Bek invited me to join . . . I had to! This link up is hosted by: Jen at The Arizona Russums, Nicole at Three 31, Lisa at Coastlined, and Becky at The Java Mama. Here are my answers for the week 🙂
I feel an adrenaline rush when . . . a good song comes on when I exercise, I used to perform in musicals, I’m watching an inspiring video or moment in a movie, or I have to unexpectedly speak in front of people. Someday I want to go zip-lining, and I imagine that I would experience a tad bit of adrenaline with that too 🙂
I feel energized when . . . I get enough sleep, pray, and am organized. Yay for responsibility!
I feel small when . . . standing next to tall people (story of my life as a person who is 5 feet), I’m part of a big crowd (ie. March for Life), or standing near something like the ocean.
I feel big when . . . I’m confident about what I’m doing, or I’m not the shortest one in the room.
I feel indestructible when . . . I’m in the middle of a good workout. This is especially the case when I exercise regularly and get strong and do something I realize I could not have done in the last couple weeks. I’ve gotten a lot stronger in my yoga class this semester and it feels amazing to be able to power through the intense plank – push-up -push-forward – downward-dog – plank – repeat routines.
I feel stupid when . . . I instantly forget a person’s name. Beginning of freshman year all over again! I’m generally good with names, but every so often this still happens.
I feel smart when . . . I know the answer to something a professor asks and no one has raised their hand. Talking more in class is definitely something I’m planning to work on more next year because I have something to say much more often than I actually say it.
Thanks for tagging me, Bek!

Welcome back, so glad you decided to join us again! Kudos to the yoga and plank, I feel like a superhero if I can plank for 10-15 seconds without dying. You should definitely go zip-lining! I did it one summer at camp through the trees and forest and it was SO MUCH FUN and such a rush. I’d love to do it again in a rainforest or some place really cool. xo, Nicole (co-host)
Thanks, Nicole! Ooooh, now I really want to zip line!
Yay! You’re back! 🙂
Omg, not being the shortest person in a group is always a cool thing. Thankfully, or not? my bestie is a couple inches shorter than I am, so that’s a perk for me 😉
Do you do zumba and yoga? You are totally a beast!
Hehehe, it’s fun to find people shorter than me for sure! And to find chairs where my feet can actually touch the floor . . . I’ve taken zumba and yoga at school (and lots of other stuff at home like step and kickboxing). I really enjoyed zumba and would like to find a DVD of it that’s not super dirty. Do you take classes or do a DVD? And I was a little apprehensive of yoga, but it turned out to be mostly pilates which is hugely challenging but very rewarding after doing it for a while. It really builds strength and oh my goodness, it feels great! Is zumba your fav?
Zip lining looks like such an adrenaline rush…but I’m afraid I’d be in a “rush” to get down to the bathroom!
