Awesome news on the truck front!
I'm pleased. I tried looking up the blue book value on it yesterday and it was like $1900 and I was so worried. But that's such great news. I'll get a big chunk of it and Matt will be able to get his new-ish truck repaired and.. well, we're keeping our fingers crossed. In other news, how are you?
*carefully rubs your back*
Chellies? My hair looks like crap because I can't hold my head at the right angle to put it in a bun or something. I look like a mentally deficient wannabe librarian. *weep*
Hi. YAY FOR INTERNET AT HOME FOR YOU!
*brushes your hair and braids it for you*
There now. *kisses your forehead* Don't you look pretty.
As long as I look pretty to you that's all that matters to me. :)
How's your kitchen?
It's... sort of unpacked? *grimaces* I had to go take an hour of "me" time last night. I really like cal's family, but sometimes, it's a struggle. i think it's the stress talking.
i have a suggestion, miss melly! you do not see lala often enough! this is a HUGE GAPING HOLE in your wellbeing behavior. please remedy immediately. :D
but seriously, honeybee, take it easy. numbness is never good, and although most likely a few trips to the chiropracter ARE all you need, i don't want you hurting. *applies warm compress*
Lala? Did you know that my name means honeybee?
I adore you so much :)
melly, i loff! pls feel better soon!
I will, promise promise.
Embarrassing moment? Looking at my semi-numb hand and thinking.. "I wonder what it would be like to wank with those fingers?" And then thinking "That would be a great fic.. someone should write that fic." And then thinking "Melly, someone did. You did. You big dork."
aw, but you're our big dork. and we love ya. *kisses your numb fingers*
oh how I hate touchy-feely professors who want to do group activities and be all about the participation. I'll participate if you motivate me too and I hate interacting with the other students. I may be old fashioned, but I like to be lectured at. I like to take notes. I like to occasionally ask a pointed and related question.
This is how I have always been in school as well. I hated mandatory discussion classes, and my class participation marks were always the ultimate suck. But lectures, I could really get behind. There's something wonderful about taking notes--you feel like you're really learning. At least I do.
I mean.. I'll chip in, I'll ask questions, I'll even figure out the damned group project like I did last night.. but I won't *like* it.. and it'll make me irritated rather than enthused. You're right, too. Taking notes makes me feel like I'm learning something.
Great news on the truck!
Last night we talked about how important good nutrition is and how you need to balance out your wellness factors. Yes. Thank you. I was unaware.
And thank goodness you told us!! What other secrets will this class reveal?
Apparently? Trans-fats? Not good. Who knew!? Also, some people don't handle stress well.
I tell you, Steph, this class is just going to blow the doors wide open for me. I'm learning all KINDS of new things.
When you're done, you can write a tell-all book and blow the doors off the health industry!
"Next week's assignment is to find a weakness in your personal wellbeing behaviors that you would like to modify and observe that behavior for a week."
Ooo, ooo, I have some ideas!
Stress reduction. After all, this week has been very high stress, so it should be easier to achieve a lower-stress state.
Avoidance of biochemical warfare, aka putting Matt's boots on the porch.
Reduction in environmental hazards, aka making sure there's no goat shit on the driveway before walking out to Dumpster the trash.
I'm sure I could come up with more than this if I tried.
Stress reduction might work. My other one is lowering my sodium intake. because you know me.. the world is one bit salt lick.
Yeah, but if your blood pressure is okay, does reducing sodium matter?
I'm thinking you should go for stress reduction. That way you can point to your new yoga class as an initiative in response.
