I haven't written for a long time, and I've had a lot of changes in my life. I've moved twice, now live with my boyfriend, and am planning for a serious future with him. (There isn't a ring yet, but it's probably just a matter of time.) I've been knitting (big surprise) and trying to keep my footing with all the change.
I don't do very well with change, but I'm trying.
I've started jogging, not terribly successfully, but I figure some is better than none. I'm going to keep working on that. I'd like to run a 5K by the summer, which seems a realistic goal.
I'm going back to grad school in March to finish my Master's degree, and I think that's a good thing. There's 4 classes left. It needs to happen. I should be done with that by the end of the summer.
I'm trying to do yoga 3X a week or more. When I do that, I don't get tension headaches, and the chronic pain in my hip goes away. At 30, I'm too young for chronic pain.
I got whooping cough at Thanksgiving, and spent a month sick. For the record, make sure the next tetanus shot you get also has the whooping cough vaccine built in (pertussis). There are two kinds of tetanus shots, and I got the wrong one. You don't want this disease. It made the move a lot more complicated since any exertion, like say walking up the stairs, started me coughing unless I laid down for 2 hours. And that was after TWO different prescription cough meds.
I got a wii for Christmas, and it's a wonderful gadget. Lots of fun, although I'm crap at Boom Blox.
I'm the GM for a Trinity campaign. It's an old White Wolf RPG, which has a lot of problems (probably why they sold it off) but has a fabulous concept. Every time we do a session, we all end up laughing, so that's a good thing. Yesterday, a doctor character got a 4 die botch in combat and stabbed himself in the neck with a syringe of sedative that he was allergic to. And then another character with minimal medicine skill wanted to try to give him a tracheotomy and was surprised to learn that she would probably have killed the doctor if another character had not stopped this plan. It was a good time. The party also stopped the bad guy. The fact that they were supposed to take him alive was just details, and will in no way complicate their lives down the road. I swear.
I'm still teaching high school science. There was some stupid politics at the beginning of the year, but I'm hanging in. The kids remain both wonderful and frustrating, sometimes at the same time, as teenagers are wont to do.
Other than that, same old, same old. I'm going to try to write more often again. I've missed it, so it's time to do that too.
Wish me luck.
