Do I really have nothing to say?
No opinions on life...or anything?
Nothing going on in my life?
C'mon now. I must have something to contribute to the blogosphere, right?
I saw on a friend's blog several weeks ago that she was doing a 30-day posting challenge, and I thought, hey, I want to see if I can do that, too! Since June has 30 days, I figured it would be a perfect time to start this challenge*.
Will I really find something to say every. single. day?
I'm hoping I'll find a good variety of things to share.
Some posts may be long and some may be very short, but I promise** to post something everyday in June.
Be it my thoughts, my goals, my experiences.
A quotation, a video, a song, a picture.
Like I said, hopefully I'll get a good variety.
Now, is where I may need your help.
Are there any particular topics you'd like me to discuss?
Anything I should steer away from?
Any meme you'd like me to revive? Tech Tuesdays? Thankful Thursdays? Flashback Fridays?
Any ideas at all would be most welcome.
Please leave me a comment on this post or send me an email.
*I have the most difficult time starting any new challenge on a day other than the first of the month or the beginning of a week. I just cannot start something in the middle! Just one of my loveable quirks, right?
**Take the word promise with a grain of salt. I will really, really try to keep this promise, but, well, you know....

It's always good to laugh at work.

In honor of Friday the 13th, I present you with a clip of Freaky Friday. The original. With a young Jodie Foster.
Ah. 70s movies. Aren't they grand?!
Hope everyone had a fun and safe weekend! I'll be writing a paper and studying for a final. Exciting, I know.

It's actually quite warm out today. Way too warm for the skyways. I wish I'd had my bike, so I could ride home, but then I would've missed out on the following signs out on Nicollet.
A guy sitting on the sidewalk, eating a big slice of pizza, holding a sign that read:
At first read, I thought, "Why? Because you're already eating a slice? What about later? Why would anyone turn down food?"
Then I read the rest of the sign:
Anything will help"
Oops! This poor man wasn't turning down food, he was simply stating he didn't have any. D'oh! (on my part)
A couple blocks later, there was a kid (late teens, early twenties), holding this sign:
"Wife Kidnapted Ransom .99"
I feel bad for his wife, if he has one. It would suck to be held with such little value by the one who should value you the most.
Then I glimpsed the other side of his sign:
"Will work half assed ... "
I'm not sure how he ended that sentence, but ...
I certainly hope the first guy gets more sympathy.

The sun is shining brightly.
The temps are actually warm, too.
I got out of class early.
I walked outside to work. WITHOUT wearing a jacket.
The traffic lights were favorable in my route, so where I didn't have to stand and wait for too many.
I nicely zigzagged through downtown, coming across a really cool, old building in the midst of the modern skyscrapers.
I also stumbled upon and walked through a small park outside the government center.
My new ID arrived at work; my fidgeting hands broke my old one.

Well, I DID IT!!!
Sadly, with very disappointing results:
Weight: 148.6 → 150.4
Body Fat %: 39.7 → 39.6
BMI: 25.1 → 25.4
Muscle %: 25 → 25.4
Actually, now that I write it down like that, it doesn't seem too bad. I gained a little weight but also muscle. :)
The most depressing was that it turns out we can't really afford even a small shopping spree right now. Boooo!!!
May's goal is to exercise 5-6 days per week, including two days in the weight room.
I should make a food goal, but I'll save that for June. ;)
On a slightly different note - Only SIX weeks until my Pedal 'n Paddle weekend!!! I'm getting excited.
