I'm a College Girl Now.

Yes, it turns out. I do kind of like school.

Today was my first day of classes, and it went well. Despite my near heart-attack-induced-by-fear-and-intimidation of the early morning, it turned out well, and I think both my fiction writing and my italian classes are going to be good.

I did the rest of my homework for my Public Service class and wrote the little paper that went along with it, and I think it is very interesting. Which is really good, because today I found out that it is, in fact, a GRADUATE course, not an undergrad course. This probably means absolutely nothing except that I will be super intimidated until I get my first graded thing back, and all the older folk in the class will be scary in the beginning (and maybe through 'til the end, in reality). So I'll keep you posted on how THAT goes!

But as for me promising I'd go to the gym.... I did! And it was great! I went grocery shopping after, and let me just say, THAT is a great idea! Go to the grocery after the gym- cookies will not tempt you after you just spend an hour trying to burn your thunder thighs off! And I made my own dinner... as me about those two things whenever you want: did I go to the gym, and did I make my own food that day!? Because those are two things I'm working on.

Besides my 10 real pushup challenge (was it 10? I think so...) and my 60 crunch challenge, I'm also adding this goal, and I really want to do it: I want to be able to touch my toes by the end of the semester. I have NO idea if that is reasonable, but I reall want to, and it's about time that I get working on my flexibility before my joints ever get worse. Ya know? (and trust me, I so would have made some joke about a kama sutra position in there somewhere if I wasn't actually me... no fear folks, never even seen the inside of the book, much less made use of it.)

SO.. that was awkward... ANYWAY.... it has been a great day, and I'm hoping tomorrow's classes will be super as well!


PS> Looks like, so far, my last class (2 of 4, so this could be all royally messed up, of course, but I just have to share it now cause its crazy!) is on April 27th. CRAZY!
