That’s what you wanted

Guess who just got back from her first spin class AKA bicycle class? LOL. I just did it because there was a Groupon offering 5 classes at another gym and I wanted to try it. I definitely won’t be buying that Groupon now. I didn’t hate it but I don’t think it is for me. I can see why people like spin. It’s a great workout.  I just don’t know whether someone with leg pain should be on a bike. My leg only slightly hurt when I was standing on the bike. So…

I’m just going to the free gym once a week like I planned. I really wished I loved spin. Damn. :/ Oh, but the really cool thing is they are doing a meditation class at the not free gym once a week. I hope they expand that. I guess it is just a trial run. I have been wanting to try a meditation class for years.


Taylor Swift pulls her music off Spotify. So what?  I don’t know what planet people are living on that think it will hurt her. But it could potentially hurt Spotify if other artists pull their music. All I know is that I pay for Spotify. Spotify pays the record labels. Who is shock to hear  the music acts rarely see that money? The record labels are pocketing all the pennies. However, artists like Tristan Prettyman and Ani DiFranco do get paid by Spotify because they own their music. Tristan was on twitter asking people to listen to her music on Spotify because she is getting paid for each listen.

I have to cut some things from my budget. As of right now, Spotify will be the last thing I cut. It will take a lot of music acts to take their music off Spotify before I stop paying. I have two book subscriptions.  I know that is ridiculous when there are places called libraries. I’m trying to decide which one to cut. Or I may cut both. I love music and books. If I had to choose between them….ugh, I hate to admit that I would choose music right now.

I don’t know how the following will come across (as if that ever stopped me before!). I follow Taylor Swift on Twitter. I follow her because she rarely tweets…that was until these past two weeks. Not the point. She is bragging about how much her album sold. (hardcore bragging) I HATE BRAGGING. That is so off putting. If someone asks what traits do I hate the most, I would probably say busy bodies and bragging.

I could do a whole entry on bragging but I probably won’t.

Books of the week:  I stopped reading my other books to read a library book: Leaving Time by Jodi Picoult

When someone leaves you once, you expect it to happen again. Eventually you stop getting close enough to people to let them become important to you, because then you don’t notice when they drop out of your world.

Yep. Happened to me at age 11.

Knitting projects of the week: I don’t know why I bother posting pics of my shawl. You can’t really see how big it is while it is on the needles. I worked on it almost everyday this week. I started my fingerless mitts on Friday night. I don’t know what I’m doing but at least I’m practicing. I hope to have something to show next week. I keep getting stuck. Frustrating.
