Well here we are at the start of February. So much has happened, I don’t know where to begin. I guess at the beginning.
You know that lovely treadmill I put together? It died. I don’t know what happened, I was using it religously and the tread stopped moving. So I called and got refunded the money and they are suppose to come pick it up, but it looks like I’ll have to call and remind them again. I don’t want to be stuck with this thing. I plan on getting a new one at some point.
I am proud to report that I lost 16 pounds, woot but that too is going to be short lived. I do zumba, but I don’t feel like that is enough…I must admit I miss my treadmill.
Next bit of bad news, which is really good news I guess. I was told I had sleep apnea a year ago and have a machine and such. I found out today that I don’t. So what have I been doing for the last year? Wasting money on a machine that I don’t need. Ugghhh…And I have to get my tonsils and adnoids removed, fun fun.
The good new is that I recieved two A’s in my Grad classes, but I wonder if I am truly receiving a quality education. It’s through a university and is NON profit, which is better than what I was going to start with. I just don’t know. I guess I miss the classroom that i don’t have time for.
Next week starts a new round of classes. Screenwriting and American Modernism.
On a Funny note, Jimmy Fallon makes my day!!
Okay I have a problem and I have 8 days to fix it!! Here it is,
I have entered into a Short Story challenge with NUC Midnight LLC. Its a fun contest, but it seems like every year I get landed with Historical Fiction.
This year I even prayed about it, but was still stuck with it. So I don’t even know where to begin. The other part of my assignment has to include a shoe shiner and then moving to a new city.
First I think of Mew York City and then I think of the Titanic. But O am sure that everyone in my group of twenty is going to write something about that. Then I thought of the stock market crash. So I think I will use this event to center my short story around.
Also I had to write a story based off f the movie “Moonrise Kingdom”. I’ll have to post it on here soon!
In other news I have lost ten pounds since the start of the nee year. Go me!! I have a long way to go! Wish me luck!!
So today was sort of productive. I got up at 8:30 thanks in most part to my dog having to go out. Then I made breakfast (microwaved two waffles and ate a banana). Most of my day was spent mapping out a rough draft for my literary analysis paper that is due tomorrow. Its still a work in progress. I chose to free write this papers so I need to clean it up cite a ton of stuff. You know how it is, the life of a student. I swear I could be a career student. I love learning so much. I also love the structure that school brings to my life. I guess I am a routine person. I am a Virgo afterall.
In other news next week I start the short story challenge. I am very excited to do this. This is will be the second time I have participated. The first time I was way under experienced than I am now. I’m not saying I’m going to win, being that my grammar still sucks, but I have some pretty nifty ideas.
I also start an eight week long weight related challenge at work. I am so not looking forward to this. When it comes to challenges I tend to start out strong but then my energy fizzles out by the 2nd or 3rd week. Anyone else have this experience? I guess I have to keep it interesting.
I was thinking of having guest bloggers any idea of what questions I should ask?
Well I guess that’s all for now. Live long and prosperous.
