It's a pretty meditative deal for me. I find it really helps me put things in perspective. It's just this time of the day where I go to exert a lot of energy, focus on pretty basic movements, and just breathe. With all that goes on day to day, lifting serves as a real way to refocus.
It's also pretty cool when I lift a box at work, and it gets easier to pick up hahaha.
Hopefully getting back into lifting for fun again. Mom bought me a fit bit, so I figured that was somehow a sign that it's time to get moving on a more regimented schedule again. I go for jogs a few times a week when the weather cooperates, but lifting has been out of my reach until now.
My sister recently picked up baking, and has just went to town making some crazy delicious stuff, but this has placed a huge burden on my family who for the most part keeps a healthier diet. It's pretty cool though.
What's not cool are these confirmation hearings though. I became pretty sick after watching Betsy DeVos' hearing.
I mean towards the end of my college career, and good portions of my early college career I worked 25-30 hours a week, was in lectures for at least 15-18 hours a week, and then library. I still had time to hang out though. I'm just more surprised that 51 of Devac's hours are solely dedicated to in-class related stuff. I mean that doesn't include any library time really. That's the only part that really surprises me.
so 51 hours of just lectures/practicals/labs. Others things amounts to about 4-5 hours? So 56 hours a week? On top of all the other things you listed before, you are well over 60 hours of just school related work every week? Is that how that works? If that's the case that seems a bit wild to me.
Aren't credit hours different school to school though? 15 (about 5 classes) was the average for a liberal arts major at my school (18 was the more common one I found), while STEM tended to have higher degree requirements like 18-21 (6-7 classes, sometimes 8).
So Happy New year again to everyone. Got back from Florida a few days ago, and had a wonderful time. Went to Disney for one day, and while nostalgia was nice I don't see myself returning until I have a child (even then I may never return if that is not my kids thing). The real awesome part of the trip was just getting to chill with my grandparents. Talking to my grandmother is always an interesting bit. I was never aware she had such an open mind about spirituality that I did. I could go on and on though, it was just really great to see them again. With my future I may not get too much time with them, and that makes me a bit sad.
I think one of the most interesting thing about the trip was that on the drive back I got to listen to all the music I had compiled over the year and listen to it in one 15 hour playlist. I could hear my year in review. While good portions of it were random, there were others that summed up pretty important moments, events, or states of mind. It was an interesting experience I created by accident, but I do think I'm going to keep compiling music and see how that goes.
Excited to hopefully get a job, hopeful for a possible Daft Punk concert (wishful thinking honestly), excited for the new Gorillaz album this year, governor's race in my state. Only a few of the many things I'm looking forward to in 2017.
Lotta good stuff on the list. Some of my favorite albums of the year are on there.
Holy shit! I have been waiting to say how shitty this movie actually was. My friends and family think I'm ludicrous, but I ask all of them the same question. Name one character from the movie? You know how many so far have been able to actually name a character? 0 people, or I get the Darth Vader answer which is still as shitty as if they said no one at all. Star Wars has been a long destroyed franchise for me. I watch it because it's nice looking at this point, and I feel dirty for even doing that.
Her name is Jyn Erso btw, and why I'm saying this is because it was a huge point of frustration throughout the movie for me. It was so poorly pronounced throughout the entire movie that I actually had to look it up afterwards for my own sanity.
