This week honestly flew by. I drove home to Atlanta on Monday, had a doctor's appointment Tuesday morning, drove back that afternoon to get to work at 5:00, spent two nights at my friend Stephanie's house, flew back to Atlanta on Thursday and will move into my apartment tomorrow! Between all of the movement I was doing, I really didn't have downtime to relax but I didn't really mind! I also got to finalize plans for fall break (I'm going to New York City - cannot wait!!), began looking at entry-level jobs for graduation (not sure why I really stress myself out about that so early, but oh well), and played Sims for like 4 hours on Wednesday. I made myself marry one of Team USA's swimmers in the game... hopefully foreshadowing for real life ;) Ha!!
Side note: almost all of these are Olympics related. Sorry, not sorry. The Olympics are like a two-week long Super Bowl for me. Be sure to follow me on Twitter for all of my thoughts and reactions during the rest of the games! (Can't believe that they're already halfway over!)
Sully // I totally remember when the plane crashed into the Hudson River in 2009. Since my dad is a pilot, I was super interested in the whole thing and couldn't ever imagine my dad doing something like that! I saw the trailer for the movie about it and I literally had goosebumps running down my arms. Tom Hanks is going to be amazing in this! I just hope it's not as long and boring as Flight with Denzel Washington was.
Ryan Held Crying // I always joke that if I ever were to win a gold medal at the Olympics, I would be bawling my eyes out on the podium when that national anthem played. Well, Ryan Held did just that after the USA men's 400 free relay won gold. He cried, I cried, America cried. (PS: call me)
The Fine Line: Simone Biles // The New York Times has a history of really cool and innovative interactive articles, and this series on Olympians is no different. I love this feature on Simone Biles and how it walks you through exactly what makes her the greatest gymnast at these Olympics, and possibly of all time. (P.S. Ryan Lochte is also featured, and so are some track and field team members! Definitely worth your time to check out.)
Contempt for Drug Cheats in Rio // After the Russian doping scandal, I would definitely say that doping and the use of PEDs is one of the biggest topics of conversation at these Olympics. This is a really interesting read that discusses all of that: how it affects the "disgraced" athletes, their competition, and what would have happened if Lilly King had not beat out Efimova for the gold medal in 100 meter breaststroke.
