Full Schedule

I'm not sure if I blogged about my excitement/nervousness for the Fall semester. It's going to be crammed.

Here is what I know for sure.

During the day: Classes. Classes chosen are French III, Intro to Mass Media, Horror Lit, Chorus, History of Rock, and Ballet (dance comp). That's my day roughly from 9am to 3pm (except Mondays, Ballet days, which stretches to 5).

Evenings: Work. I've put in my hours as being available from 6pm to 11pm on Weekdays (which, by the hours of the ELC (Electronic Learning Center -the computer lab, my place of employment as part of work study at MCC- Monroe Community College, or McCollege as the kids these days call it) is Mondays - Thursdays, as Fridays, we close early).

That gives me a few hours in between for homework and other, although, I do homework between classes when there are long enough stretches between, and after work (and when the beginning-of-semester rush winds down, during work).

Here is what sort of know.

I will be art director for Cabbages and Kings, MCC's literary magazine. Not sure when we'll meet, and I'm still unsure what this will entail, as I joined them late last semester, just in time to take over the job and put together the magazine. I have yet to hear back about it, too, so I haven't even seen the completed piece.

I will be "Wardrobe Mistress" as Heather (the official Costumer at school) calls me, for Ragtime, the Fall musical. I'm very excited about this, as these are the threads I've been waiting for all my years of wanting to learn costiming :) I have a meeting to go to on the 25th this month. I'm not sure where, and I'm not sure what time. Only then will I gain an idea of the schedule I'll have to wrap around work. Of course it will be in the afternoon, which is why I chose my work schedule to start at six.

I also don't know if I'm going to get a promotion or not. I've been striving for a promotion at work, which does not entail too much of a change from my current job, but does call me PTP- Part Time Professional, instead of Student Consultant, on top of a pay raise.

Here is what I want to know:

Where do I fit in an exercise routine, and I mean a decent one? I am hoping to lose my jumbly tummy and if my ass gets any bigger, I'll need to attach a wagon to the back of me to wheel it around. I do nothing but eat healthy, with the occasional treat to a burger and fries, I always drink water, and still I fluctuate between 210 and 220 lbs. What the douche?

And you know, play? I'm glad to be doing what I like, which is learning, and creating, but I think... comic books (I haven't even had the chance to read comic books over the summer), DRAWING comic books, writing, making jewelry, movie nights, and ugh... I guess I'll have to do play things between classes.

What I'm dying to do:

Get the balls-shit out of here! There is no room left in this apartment for humans! Boyfriend and I are moving out at the end of the year. December? January? February? Oh not that late, I hope. We're headed to the East End, or the Park Ave area. I'm more excited about that than anything else, really.

So... what do you think?

That sounds so exciting!

I didn't know you were a ballerina?

Oh I'm the opposite of a ballerina, sadly. But they offered it this year, so I'm going to try my hand at it... it's a beginner-any-shape-any-size class, so...
We'll see >_

I want to live there, but we can't break the lease.

That sounds like so much work - but also like sooo much fun, especially the Art Director and Wardrobe Mistress parts :D (I want photos of the play ^^")

And since I've had times when my timetable looked very much like this, too, here is what I've learned for myself: Exercise kind of never worked for me before I got that one pilates course. I might force myself to do 10/15 minutes every second or third day for a while, but duh, not more ... So I resort to the lazy way of exercising: taking stairs and generally walking where possible (though I'm pretty aware that this is much easier for me in B. than for you in R.). And the play stuff just somehow happens - funnily the more I have to do, the more I actually do on the creative side. If my days are less full, I'm just too lazy to write or to draw ...

And I hope things work out with the move. Moving itself is awful, but a better place is always worth it in the end.

I resort to lazy exercising, too (except when I have to go up more than just one floor, because I have bad knees- which hopefully is just weight-related and will be fixed upon losing weight). I'll have to look into Pilates. I've never tried it. That's the one with the big ball, right?
I know what you mean about creativity when you have more to do. When I'm on a roll, I don't want to stop to take a breath. Just gotta keep on rolling ;)

I know it's probably not helpful suggesting medical visits to an American (Do you have free/cheap doctors yet? What did Obama get through in the end?) but have you ever had your thyroid checked? My doctoring friend says all women should have theirs checked. If you're only eating healthy things and yet not losing any weight then diet might not be the answer.

That said, I've never had my thyroid checked but then I know what I have to do to not pork up - avoid gluten. It makes a two pants size difference to my own ass.

Well, you were totally bang on about the gluten intolerance... I do need to have my thyroid checked. We don't have free doctors yet, but there are some MSF-like clinics here that will doctor me for 5 bucks a pop. It's murder trying to get in an appointment in a timely fashion, though.

G-free doesn't seem to do it for me, but then again, I don't avoid gluten as well as I should. I need to be more diligent about my guts.
