The Millennial's Guide To Changing The World Review

This post is sponsored by The Millennial's Guide To Changing The World book by Allison Sher.

I was given a digital copy of this book. I thought that it would be good to read, even though I am a Gen X'er. There is just so much talk about the Millennial's right now that I thought that it would be good to get to know what is going on inside their head.

About the Book  The Millennial's Guide to Changing the World teaches young people everything they need to know to change the world, while building a happy, healthy adult life for themselves. It explains how our current social systems work, the challenges young people are inheriting and how millennials can step into our power to create a critical mass conversion to solve them. Everything from politics to spirituality to love relationships to education to sex to economics to mental health is covered. And it includes 50 or so juicy, true life stories from millennials across the country…

Ooops, I'm Late

I think I have my hand in too many pots this month. I totally forgot about some homework that was due on the 26th. I finished it today, the 28th. Ooops. I was totally late. Looked at my syllabus for my class (addiction studies) and I have to find time to go to AA next week and write a paper on my experience before the 10th. I have put important things like that into my phone calendar.

I also have a few product reviews and giveaways to do here on the blog that I am kinda late on, and I may cancel some things to get some other things done so I don't overwhelm myself. You can't say Yes to everything. I have to focus on one thing at a time, and plod away to get things done.

This weekend is going to involve lots of plodding. TWO half marathons! I am excited about the challenge. Yesterday was packet pick-up for Saturdays race. I didn't get my shirt because I got my entry just a few days ago. If there are some available at the finish, I will get it then. I got to sign a clipboard because this is a small town race, and this is the first year doing it. They thought that it would be fun for everyone doing this years race to sign a clipboard that they will use in the future years. I thought it was a sweet thing to do. I signed my name in pink in the upper right corner. I didn't get a pic at the time. In my goodie bag, I got my bib number, lots of flyers, a baggie of granola, a coupon for a free Subway sandwich, a BOGO for the Thunder Mountain Line, sunscreen, Spider Tech tape sample, pencil, Laffy Taffy & a coupon for the Sonora Mexican Restaurant. Oh, and a race sponsor doing pictures will give you a free race print. I have never heard of anyone doing that before in a race, so I am pretty excited I got a new outfit to wear. Fingers crossed I don't have a horrible pic taken!

And SUNDAY'S half marathon will have wine on the course! The directors had to modify the route because the transportation dept. didn't want to have wine-ing runners on a highway.

Anyways, lots of stuff to do. Next biggest decision will be what to have for pre-race dinner. I usually have pizza, but this tweet makes me think that I should do something else.
But maybe use this recipe instead. Or maybe I will go to Chik-Fil-A and get a sandwich. Or maybe just order pizza?

What is your pre-race dinner? Have you ever had a race give out a free print? What do you do when you say yes to too many things?
