I'm taking up Japanese again! ^_^2007 - on going
Status:I have decided to start working on learning Japanese again after about a year of hiatus. I had stopped because I think I had gotten burned out. There's only so much of flashcards one can take!I am amazed at how fast it can all come back. I was using these flashcards and I needed something more flexible, so I did a Google search and found Flash My Brain. What I like most about it is how flexible it is. Hopefully I won't get as bored as quickly as with regular flashcards!I think what drew me back was that I have been taking a lot of general education courses, while talking and having discussions is all find and good, I think I needed to exercise a different part of my brain for awhile.A little about my skills:I am not fluent. My speaking skills are poorly since I have no one to speak it with but I can do simple sentences (X is Y, etc.) I've been mainly focusing on reading Kana and Kanji and vocab building. I definitely have the Kana learned as I don't need any sort of English phonetics to help me read my vocabulary words.
Pilates and YogaJuly 2008 - on going
Status:I started doing Yoga back in July '08 because I was sick and tired of feeling hunched over all the time. I would go to the Chiropractor, I would feel better but for only a day or two. So I joined the YMCA and took a class at 6:15am on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I did this until December when the weather was just too icky to drive down there. However, I still do it at home in my free time. Pilates is the next level after Yoga. I was working at the South Central College Bookstore and they had a textbook that I would see everyday. The pictures were great, the explanations were too so I said, "why not?" I try to do Pilates at least once a day for 10 minutes. My posture hasn't been this good since I was a child! I feel like I'm a foot taller and I wish I had started this stuff sooner.
Walking/RunningMay 2008 - on going
Status:I had taken up walking a few miles in the mornings last Spring before it got too hot out. I use a Garmin Forerunner 201 that I had bought years ago and have finally put to good use!Between April and May '08 I had walked 89.79 miles and burned 18,044 calories. This year I am planning on beating that, to also incorporate running into my routine, and to use the social training website Dailymile to help me achieve my goals.
I would like to someday either join the Peace Corps or teach English overseas.
