Here We Go...

Oy, school started today. Lemme tell you that 8am start time down in San Marcos sure is early. I think they lured me in with the easy schedule of last semester. Yes, I realize it's summer so we're cramming a ton of stuff into a 5 week period.

My first project has some heavy duty cutting tools in it. I'm hoping not to lose any body parts since I won't have my wits about me for the next 5 weeks. It reminds me of my 6th grade art class and my first experience with the Xacto knife. I can hear Mrs. Johnston telling us now don't put your hands in front of the knife to hold the board down. What do I do??? Put my hand in front of the knife to hold the board down. What do I manage to hold together while chasing down Mrs. Johnston for some paper towels or something to keep my body parts in tact, my left thumb. Let's just say she was a little less than thrilled with me that day. Honestly, are both thumbs necessary?

Some other un-exciting news in my world. Today was my first day for the UT Cycle study. This was just to get my VO2 Max. Friday is a test run and I have to fast 12 hours prior, so I will be attending class on an empty stomach and no caffeine. It's going to be an interesting way to end my first week back at school.

VO2 Max- 45.4
Weight- Nunya
Height- Dear Lord I knew I was short but seriously...this is ridiculous, so again nunya. In my world albeit it's a small one I'm 5'7". It's my world remember!

I always really liked summer school. The classes always seemed more laid back even thought we had less time.

Do you have to wear safety goggles?

Katie said...

I think I need a safety outfit.

No goggles...I think the eyeballs are safe for the moment;)

Katie, good luck with classes!! I could be talked into study hall even though I'm done with my school. I still love coffee shops, good friends, and a good book!

What time at UT? I'll have to try to swing by? (I've tried with Erin a couple of times and am usually forgetful, but let's try).

Jane- I'm at UT for the next 3 Fridays starting at noon. I'm not sure how long I'm on the bike at least an hour would be my guess.

You should definitely come see me!

I think you should wear a chain mesh protective suit to class.

Summer school is cool because you can skip and go to Barton Springs.
