Hiking, Travelling and Dreaming

This was intended to be my thoughts on travelling, but I'll have to tame my wanderlust for a while longer....

Kritter's having a great time in NZ!! Check out her blog if you haven't already.

Today we cleaned the cold-water flat. It's so nice to say we instead of I. The place was dusted, mopped, vacuumed and couches were moved!

I'm going to France this summer, if all goes well and I can continue to live cheap!

Well I gtg study... I'm at the bibliotheque and then off to Joanne's class:)

Cold Fx worked for me!

Sorry, that sounds like hooked on phonics. But Jayne was sick this past weekend and I started to feel it... Many pills later, I'm nearly in full strength. BTW, Jayne, I hope you're feeling better as you were not at fusion.

Critter has officially left North America and today is election day. I guess I will hope that it's only a conservative minority. I'm rooting for my blue-eyed separatist! At least he's better than Bush's marionette :)

I finally understand the parlimentary system of Canada, well in a condensed wikipedia kinda way. That may make me sound like a moron, but my world knowledge sucks. One of my resolutions was to educate myself and that I have.

Anyways... c'est tout!

Please people just vote!

I'll try to write more often even if it's not interesting....

Starting this week will be my pre-training for the half marathon. I'm gonna run 4-5 times per week for 30-60 minutes to increase my mileage. Then, I will start the actual training.

E's my coach this time round... And I woke up ready to jog, although the weather wasn't cooperative. I may resort to running indoors at the Y....

Okay, c'est tout pour aujourd'hui.

You Are an Espresso
Doesn't really surprise me....

Although I think that fusion class helped to reduce my "high strunginess"!

At your best, you are: straight shooting, ambitious, and energetic
At your worst, you are: anxious and high strung
You drink coffee when: anytime you're not sleeping
Your caffeine addiction level: high
What Kind of Coffee Are You?

This past weekend I disappeared up north to St Agathe. A friend invited me weeks ago, but I didn't think I was going till Friday morning. I basically ran out of the flat in a hurry... packed and got ready in 20 minutes!

I skiied (cross-country style) and snowshoed and ate like a vegan. It was a fun weekend, great exercise and a great excuse not to shower! (Who cares when you're in the woods).

But now I'm back to the city where I gotta shower and focus!! I am having difficulty motivating myself to listen in class and to start reading.

Critter is leaving on the 21st... so we gotta plan goodbye events! Lora (her replacement) has moved in and everyone has to meet her!!! (Jayne!!)

I also need a freakin WHY-EM-SEE-EH schedule. I checked online and it's not posted. This makes me consider taking the night off... Not sure what classes are scheduled.

Okay enough Barbara-ing (inside joke for those who know my mom)...

School has started. I'm home alone in the coldwater flat... which ain't so cold. I turned up the heat to 21C!! I figured that since we pay for it, I'd rather not freeze and still pay a chunk.

My main goal for the new years is to stop biting my nails!! (I've already broken it) And also to complete my 2nd half marathon in April. That means that I'll have to start training for it again... (Damn the Montreal winters!)

Well that's enough.. gtg shower
