Can't Stop... Won't Stop!

I ran two miles today and felt strong and ready to keep going at the end but as a promise to myself I am taking this first week easy as I get back my running feet. Wow that was a long sentences!

I'm having a great week, not that anything too cool or unique is going on just that I am having a great week and keeping the positive energy flowing. I may also be super excited because I'm traveling to see my amazing boyfriend, Chris this weekend. He lives quite far away, 2.5 hours and I have not traveled to his town for several weeks. A few hours in the car is worth it to experience a few days with the guy that I love. :)

Chakotay is out to complete a ritual and gets caught up in a Kazon initiation ritual. In the end all is well and things are set straight. Not a great episode and the first of a whole season arc exploring the Kazon.
Boom that is Nog from DS9, well the actor who plays Nog that is.

The 37's

Now I am not one to typically complain when I am at a place of business but today I had to make an exception to this policy. I was at the gym and a group of loud obnoxious boys were in the pool not for fitness but as some type of party. These boys were not following rules, diving and entering the lap lanes despite signage saying to leave these lanes for swimmers only. When one was in my way I surfaced and said "get out of the lane" and the boy moved away slowly. Later I heard one of the boys mockingly say, "get out of the lane." At this point I was just about done and I ended my swim at 1/4 mile as opposed to my intended 1/2 mile. This is a gym and a fitness center not a public pool for a party or some other shit. There should be parents monitoring the kids and the gym staff should be more aggressive in handling complaints. When I complained the staff said I was not the only on to complain. If I'm not wrong a private business should be able to kick anyone out of their business who is not following rule s and guidelines, right?

On a happier note I had a fantastic session with one of my clients that helped me to really remember why it is that I am a speech/language pathologist and particularly why I enjoy working with adolescents who have some more troubling behaviors.

The 37's
The Voyager finds a group of people from 1937 on a planet in the Delta Quadrant and one of them is Amelia Earhart. Turns out that a bunch of people were taken there way back when and are now living on this planet. Over 100,000 humans. The crew is offered a place to live but they all decide to stay on Voyager.

Learning Curve

I ran my first mile in over 2.5 months and it felt amazingly awesome in every way. Even though the weather was a bit chilled and the wind was a little biting I smiled the entire way. I've been waiting for this moment for a long time and it went the exact way I wanted it to go. :)

Today was also great because I got a lot of work completed on the yearbook at my school and there is only one page left at this point. WOO HOO! The yearbook is a lengthy and time consuming process that I love and at the same time get increasingly annoyed with. You could call it a love hate but truly it is a love fest about 90% of the time.

Today: 1.3 miles at a 9:14 pace. Slow but I'm incredibly happy

Learning Curve
Story A: A bunch of Maquis crew members are douche bags and Tuvok is in charge of whipping them into shape. He ends up succeeding of course as Tuvok is want to do but through a crazy freak accident not his training.

Story B: The gel packs in the engine room have somehow developed an illness that apparently is from some cheese that Neelix was making so someone could have their mac and cheese.

This is a bit of a lame duck ending to the first season but wasn't supposed to be according to wikipedia.
