I really enjoyed keeping a tally on everything I've read over the past few days. I have never been asked to do this in any class before, and my results were very interesting. I actually found that I have no life besides facebook, reading about celebrities, and food. Pretty pathetic huh??
Everyday I try my best to hit the gym. I played soccer my whole life, and never really had to worry about working out on my own time because I would have practice everyday. Since being in college, that all has changed. I realized that I can't eat as much as I want and not gain a pound. That is not how it's supposed to work. Therefore, by attending the gym everyday, I can still eat all the ice cream I want! When at the gym, I always check to see what classes are at that time, and will have my ipod playing constantly. Also, I tend to bring magazines when on the stair stepper so I'm not staring at the amount of time I have left while I'm dying. Therefore, hitting the gym keeps my body in shape and myself updated on all my favorite celebrities. I think that is a pretty good combination.
I've also learned I am a pretty big procrastinator. For instance, right now I'm trying to read the articles online for this class, and yet I'm still on facebook. I definitely know I should cancel my account; however, I always tend to persuade myself out of it.
Furthermore, I am a huge health freak. I like to know what ingredients/nutritious value everything I eat has. Therefore, before I eat something, I tend to look at the facts on the back. However, most of the time, even though I know what I'm eating is bad, I'll still eat it. I think I just make myself feel better by knowing that I atleast attempted being healthy.
The past school week was considered "syllabus week", so I also had to read all of those for my classes. I have always been the type of student that puts school work ahead of everything else, so I tried to stay ontop of all my readings for my class, especially this class!
I tried my best to keep tally of everything I read over the weekend, but I'm sure I missed a few things. I never realized how difficult it could be when trying to keep track. I never pay attention to the things I read, I just read it because I have to. For instance, street signs. I would never really consider that "reading", yet if I didn't know how to read, I would never know what a stop sign is.
