Well, here's what's been going on:
School: I'm taking four classes (one of which meets twice a week) and I really enjoy all of them, which is great. That's not to say that they all go well all the time - a crummy test score here, a poor filming job there - but I feel pretty stuffed with information at the end of the week.
Church: I am now on three committees; CE, Stewardship, Centennial Planning. I like being on committees and helping to plan events and what not, but it also means being required to go to church certain Sundays, which I find makes me want to go less. I take that as proof that I should not be a minister.
Gym: I got a membership to the YWCA in January and have been going pretty regularly. But, I was having a hard time going everyday because i can talk my self out of things pretty easily. So I made a Lenten Devotion out of it. I decided that for Lent I am going to go to the Gym at least 5 days a week. The first week didn't go so well. I was super sick and since it was hard to breath out of my nose, I decided it better to use the time for sleep. But this week I've been feeling quite a bit better, and I went Mon. through Thurs. and am going to go today, too! On Tuesdays and Thrusdays I have a class called Chisel! (there's really an exclamation point) I like i a lot. It's strength training with some cardio built in and it changes every time s I never get bored. Plus we listen to music that has a good beat to keep you going.
I discovered that music is the most important part of my workout - surprise surprise. I went a few weeks without an iPod, and I couldn't believe how hard it was to get going on the exercise bike, not to mention keep going! Now I am figuring out which songs are the best to keep me motivated and moving fast. I can't wait for my MNCare stuff to pull through so I can go to the doctor. I really want to know what the deal is with heart rate, cause I have to work really hard to get my heart rate up on the bike.
Travel: I decided I needed a vacation, and what with Spring Break coming up, I decided to do something fun, just for me! So I booked a plane ticket and a hotel for Seattle!
OK, I know a lot of people go to sunny beaches for S.B., but really, does that sound like something I want to do? Instead, I'm going to a city near the ocean, a walkable downtown and lots of fun cultural stuff. So far my most exciting plan is to see Wings of Desire at the Seattle International Film Festival Cinema, and maybe a few other films as well. (Don't worry, I'll blog all about that on FilmAching). The hotel I'm staying at is awesome with a super hip-artsy feel to it. I'm also going to email a couple people I know out there to try and get together, but really, this is more a trip about me exploring the city by myself, having a nice adventure!
So, thats' a bit of what's going on with me. I may be a little absent again because I have a 6 page paper due Thursday and a new editing project to work on...not to mention a documentary I'm making for Stewardship...hmmm, I better get cracking...But I'll try to keep you "posted"!
