None the wiser

Today is the first day of summer school and I haven’t checked the syllabus yet. I hope it isn’t scary. Scary can be just a mid-term & final to determine the grade. Or grading heavily based on participation. Or group work (oh god). Or essay tests only. Or too many true & false questions. Why am I scaring myself?

I just wanted to blog to say: I WON! I won THE FIRE STARTER SESSIONS by Danielle LaPorte! Click the link to read about the book. I can’t wait to get it. I rarely enter giveaways because I never know about them in time but I saw a link on Twitter and decided to enter. I thought I had no chance. YAY! 🙂 Thank you.

I did it again. But this is the last time I swear (unless it goes well). I signed up for 10 yoga classes. It was only $50. That is a bargain. The only yoga class I really hated and didn’t follow through on was the class where the instructor made people stand in a rectangle. Chances of that happening again is slim. So I’m looking forward to it. I wonder how many people will be there. It is a little different because it is at my workplace. I’m not really worried about knowing someone there because we have a huge workplace and while I may recognize a face but I doubt I actually know someone.

Yes knowing someone = bad. LOL.

My beach vacation was awesome. 4 nights at the beach. What wasn’t great was that I was sick for 3 days after I got back. But I’m feeling better now. I had a lot of time to think. It was just me, the beach, and Jason Mraz (his music, not him).

I let one thing I was clutching onto go. If I wasn’t at the beach, I probably would have cried or been depressed about it but I was at peace. I made the decision while staring at the ocean one night. I must have stood in the same spot for about 20 minutes. The cold water on my feet. And I just thought. The ocean gives me clarity.

It was so fun mixing my own drinks! Too bad the drinks are filled with calories. I think I have a new hobby. 🙂 A hobby I will only practice once a week at the most. I don’t have any rum left…only vodka so I can’t make much now without going to the liquor store. hehehe. Me. Going into a liquor store?? LOL. I never would have thought. You have to try the Bikini Martini. It is so good.

I also wrote and read a lot. I’m going to post some of my favorite quotes and a review of one book soon.

Oh, I had the chance to see “Girls“. I can see why people hate the show but I think if I had seen the season opener, I probably would have liked it more. One question: Do people really have this much sex? I guess people asked the same thing about Sex & the City. Anyhow, it wasn’t great but it was watchable. I need to see the premiere before I judge. What intrigued me is that the “girls” weren’t movie star attractive. (No offense). But the writing has to be there too, obviously. I haven’t read anything on it recently but I’m guessing this series won’t last long. I watched Veep too but while I got it (I think), I didn’t really like it. I’ve seen stuff like that before. I’m over it. There is better stuff on network TV (30 Rock, Parks & Rec).

M & M – my dwarf african frogs are doing great. I really think they should have a bigger home but a.) I don’t have room and b.) I’m scared to move them from one home to another. “A” isn’t a big deal. I can give them more space but they won’t be in the same room I’m in. “B” is a huge deal. I can’t find any info on how to move the frogs. I know how to clean fish tanks and move fish. But frogs hop! So um, I’m scared.

African Dwarf frogs are shy. 😉 They need and want places to hide. All they have is one plant. It isn’t a good hiding spot. I want to give them that…after all I get it but they need a bigger home. If they are so shy, why do people recommend they get two? Sometimes M & M get into fights. I can’t help but think they are frustrated by being in such a small place. One of them seems less shy than the other. I’m guessing that the female is the less shy one. She seems to seek out the other frog.

Sharing a small place with no place to hide does not sound fun. I’ve been there. I’ve got to come up with something.

This was supposed to be a short entry. Oh well.
