Today in a Nutshell

So my thoughts for the blog today consist of two topics; school and my new venture, walking and getting healthy. The topics don't relate to each other except that they are both starts to a new and better life for me and my family.

I had my orientation at school today. I start tomorrow and I am so very excited and appropriately scared. I'm going into the RCP(Respiratory Care Practitioner) program at Kaplan College.

I will graduate at the end of 2012 and from there my options in my career and really in life are limitless! There seem to be some really great, motivated, people in my class. This is a relief to me as I have taken SO many class with young punks who have no idea what life is about and don't care to really listen, learn, or be respectful of others.

I'm sure my blog will be filled with all the triumphs, frustrations, and observations from college. I have much I could say here today but I will only touch on a bit of the humorous of the day. If you've seen the TV show Angel then you will totally relate and laugh. If you don't, well then this will be lost on you. In season 5 each of the characters take over a division of Wolfram and Hart. Wesley Wyndam-Pryce takes over their research division. He goes from previous seasons of having every occult book under the sun, as every Watcher has, to a library of a few magic reference books that he is told will find him ANYTHING he is looking for. Well as I sit in the library at school listening to the librarian talk about the limitless resources at our fingertips I look around the very small room and the 2 shelves of books and pray dearly that they are magic!

When I got home from school I took my daily walk around our lake. This was my breathtaking view!

It's literally right out my back door but I'm not sure how long the distance is around it. I need to find this out (I'm think half a mile to a mile). Yesterday I walked it, with 5lb weights on each ankle, in about 25 minutes. Today I walked it again, with my ankle weights, in about 20 minutes and this time stopped three times to take a pictures and slowed once to go around a flock of geese, ducks, and mud hens.
January 4 - 4 days on the wagon, 3 days eating healthy, and 2 days exercising! It's gonna be and awesome 2011!
