Just finished exercising for an hour. Going to shower, get dressed and run out the door to walk to school for my first day back of the term.
07:40 AM September 06, 2007 from Twadget
I'm awake early on purpose. I want to get myself into the habit of exercising before school @ the start of the day before I lose ambition.
04:58 AM September 07, 2007 from Twadget
two days in a row -that's a start- another 1 hour of exercise -going to dress & walk to class. It's supposed to be hot, humid & rain today.
08:12 AM September 07, 2007 from Twadget
Yesterday wasn't as humid as I expected it to be & there was a strong (lovely) breeze & today will be a good day to get my laundry done.
10:18 AM September 08, 2007 from Twadget
Turns out I'll have to wait around the house as Dad's going to have things dropped over by my Uncle sometime today. Laundromat later, d'oh.
10:35 AM September 08, 2007 from Twadget
The overhead livingroom fan was fixed today. Didn't get my laundry done; slept a lot. Sunday I'll go rain or shine. Today was a day of rest.
11:00 PM September 08, 2007 from Twadget
So... I didn't make it to the laundromat today. It was raining & I slept a lot & I can do it tomorrow after my morning class. Lazy Sunday. ?
06:32 PM September 09, 2007 from Twadget
I don't have to make excuses to you or anyone! If I want to do nothing with my weekend, that's my choice! I don't have to answer to anybody!
06:34 PM September 09, 2007 from Twadget
Of course, it sure would have been nice to get that sort of thing out of the way, seeing as how this week looks like it's going to be busy.
06:35 PM September 09, 2007 from Twadget
I'm craving hummus sandwiches.
06:35 PM September 09, 2007 from Twadget
I have chills watching a live broadcast from Washington re: the US Iraq Strategy. It's incredible to hear the truth for once.
12:58 PM September 10, 2007 from Twadget
Not that it matters. Bush will do as Bush does, regardless of what the majority of the public (or world) wants.
01:00 PM September 10, 2007 from Twadget
It offends me now to hear 'September 11th' used as a tool to continue on with a disastrous war. How many 11th's = every day everywhere else?
01:09 PM September 10, 2007 from Twadget
Back from the laundromat - took the hiking pack. A good day is change left over after the clothes are clean & reading that passes the time.
05:14 PM September 10, 2007 from Twadget
There are times when I attempt to express myself artistically or believe I can perhaps convey some emotions in an abstract way, but I fail.
04:40 PM September 11, 2007 from Twadget
Back from my 1st session of Reiki - First Degree - it was fantastic. My bicycle ride home was cold autumn air - fast tires on smooth cement.
09:16 PM September 12, 2007 from Twadget
I'm in my first ever college class. (Finally, eh?) I got here way too early & wrote in my paper journal for a bit. I'm writing again, wow!
08:12 PM September 13, 2007 from web
Testing new phone.

Catching part of documentary called Alive Day Memories: Home From Iraq - one third of injured come back with brain injuries.

Exhausted mentally. Going to have a nap before I get ready for tonight's Tai Chi class. Oh, and I need to study for my test sometime, too.
02:51 PM September 18, 2007 from Twadget
I'm leaving now to how long it will take me to walk to the college from here. Slept a little in between mobile beeps. Dream of cousin Toni.
04:54 PM September 18, 2007 from Twadget
I made it to the college and I'm early. Now I have an estimate of my time, give or take a few minutes of dawdling and alternate routes.
06:22 PM September 18, 2007 from txt
I need to remember to restrict my Twittering to 140 characters! I'm here half an hour early. I could read or text people.
06:35 PM September 18, 2007 from txt
Done first session of Tai Chi. Knew I'd love it. Feet sore from walk here - might take longer to get home.
08:42 PM September 18, 2007 from txt
Off to Reiki class. Was able to practice a treatment with a partner (Heather) on Sunday but neglected to practice on myself. stilllearning
06:12 PM September 19, 2007 from Twadget
If only I would make it click in my mind about how simple it is to be. I'm so far out in search of balance - I've no footing to be still...
04:10 PM September 20, 2007 from Twadget
Sitting @ the computer in a college class for 'Microsoft Office Essentials' --- hoping that I'm able to 'get' the essentials when it's done.
06:29 PM September 20, 2007 from web
Class is over (although the instructor is going over instructions for saving our work online) & I'm going to ride my bicycle home.
09:31 PM September 20, 2007 from web
My status on Facebook last night was, "Amber Dawn Pullin is wondering why people connect if they don't want to make a connection." Dig it?
08:28 AM September 21, 2007 from Twadget
In English class. Next term I'll do full days while continuing to take the two night classes during the week @ the college. Work Harder.
09:45 AM September 21, 2007 from web
I need to build myself up to a greater tolerance level (while hopefully getting anxiety to settle) so I'll do well in January @full college.
09:46 AM September 21, 2007 from web
This weekend I will attempt to catch up on some ho0mework assignments. I've missed classes & yet got only 3 wrong on Unit 1 test. No excuse.
09:49 AM September 21, 2007 from web
Is it the end of the month yet? Despite things keeping me busy, all I can think about is being in Toronto. Train, subway, streetcar, Cliff.
09:53 AM September 21, 2007 from web
I sorted through old clothes & various things into bags & boxes for either donation or the trash. This kept me busy along with Cliph online.
04:41 AM September 23, 2007 from Twadget
My bedroom is ever so much better now that I've rid it of bags of old clothes. Boxes of books & random things, gone, donated. Ah, lightness!

[...] an increasingly popular setting for horror movies and thrillers, perhaps in response to the real-life images of the U.S. war in Iraq.

Home from 2nd class of Tai Chi. I am thankful that I'm finally able to learn from a teacher, in person. So much to learn. It's so beautiful.
09:16 PM September 25, 2007 from Twadget
I'm learning more than just the moves. I'm learning history, self-defense, balance, about my body, patience, practice, acceptance, movement.
09:18 PM September 25, 2007 from Twadget
On Monday night, I attended a meditation group and it was also very good for me. I hope to continue with the group after their 2 week break.
09:20 PM September 25, 2007 from Twadget
On Monday afternoon, I went to group therapy which is a self-esteem workshop. I mentally know all the stuff, it's just a matter of practice.
09:22 PM September 25, 2007 from Twadget
Going to Toronto to see Cliph (& the 'Nuit Blanche' events). Be back Sunday. I'm more nervous this time than the previous visit! excitedtoo.
02:01 PM September 28, 2007 from Twadget
I'm in Toronto. I've been here since yesterday. I'm a lucky girl.
01:10 PM September 29, 2007 from twitterrific
Twitter wants me to say what I'm doing but I doubt it wants the details. In bed w/Cliff &discussing brunch.

I'm in my evening computer class (office computer essentials) & feeling a bit sore / out of sorts but I'm here. (I live too much in my head)
07:29 PM October 04, 2007 from web
I find the night air exhilerating when I'm on my bicycle moving fast... i wonder if it only SEEMS as though I peddle faster, smoother, easy?
09:59 PM October 04, 2007 from Twadget
I just finished writing a test in English & organized a stack of assignments (that are overdue) which I intend to put effort into this week.
10:49 AM October 09, 2007 from web
I've not been sleeping right or feeling well but I'm here. When I get home I'll have a nap so that I can be fresh for Tai Chi class tonight
10:50 AM October 09, 2007 from web
To get myself into some sort of routine would be a good thing. One that can discipline me for health, creativity, getting things done. Idea.
10:56 AM October 09, 2007 from web
I'm looking forward to being with Cliff this weekend (3 more days!) & being in Toronto again. We're going to try to do this every two weeks.
11:05 AM October 09, 2007 from web
I got PERFECT on my English test today. Must complete assignments to pass this course and not sabotage this chance at earning this credit.
11:38 AM October 09, 2007 from web
Although my day was all off kilter & I felt unrested & blah, I went to Tai Chi! I was only a couple minutes late & I'm so glad I went. love.
09:06 PM October 09, 2007 from Twadget
My bicycle riding speedtime has increased. I was running behind all day today & yet I arrived almost on time for everything. Go speed racer!
09:08 PM October 09, 2007 from Twadget
Moved my desk (the livingroom is rearranged). Tacked up CDBrewster's paintings on the wall behind me. I feel better w/o my back to the room.
05:46 PM October 10, 2007 from Twadget
1 more sleep and then I'll be in Toronto visiting Cliff again, yay! We're even going out on a date, ooo! & yes, we're doing well together...

I slept very well last night. I only hit the snooze once. Yesterday started feeling like Autumn. It was too hot last week and now it's cold.
