total randomness

~there is no better title for today's post since random is exactly what this will be.

~down to 16 days left in this semester. I really need to get crackin' on the two projects I have left.

~i got a new (to me) computer at work today. it is TONS better (so far) than the old one I had. at least it doesn't take 15-20 minutes to boot up in the mornings anyway.

~i remain quite UNmotivated in all things school or work related.

~well, maybe not entirely since I did complete my on-line employment application for the local school district today.

~didn't realize that I have to take 6 credit hours per semester in order to get financial aid...so if I don't get a job come August, that poses a problem...or, well I'll need to take another class in the Fall just for kicks. Ugh!

~i ran a 5K on Saturday. I had not run for about 13 days (per doc's orders) and holy moly, I am still sore today...I'm talking post-1/2-marathon sore!! Ouch! But on a positive note, I was free of back pain and still feel good today. Hopefully once my meds are gone I'm still pain-free.

~I didn't get a new PR (like I had hoped for) and I disliked the course, or at least the last mile of the course -which was UPHILL and twisty...very poor finish line setup and honestly a poorly run race from all aspects. Even picking up my packet on Thursday night (at a different location) was ridiculous. I'm just glad I didn't have to pick it up on Saturday - that would have been awful.

~my iPod Touch failed me during the race and stopped tracking my run, so I have no time or pace data. and my Nike-Mini remains unhappy as well. Boo!

~I'm quite looking forward to having the ENTIRE Summer free from school commitments and being able to read books for fun once again. hoping to read at least 1 per week, a lofty goal, but one I hope to reach.

~the only class I'm taking over the Summer is Yoga!!! I'm so excited! Since my classes are free @ the university and I've wanted to "learn" Yoga for a while, I figure this is the best way to do it. Class will be Monday through Thursday mornings 8-9am for the month of June. The real challenge will be arriving on time.

If you have to take another class to reach 6 credits, can it be any class you want as an elective, if you don't have any more to take for your degree?

Yes, it can be an elective, but that would still be an academic course requiring papers, presentations etc. etc. It couldn't be Advanced Yoga for example. :(

sorry the race didn't go well :-/ at least you finished? back pain is no fun, feel free to blame it on that.

fun about the yoga class!
