Rejection #2

I just got rejected by Wisconsin. That's too bad, I would have liked the cheese and wanted to pick up their accent, don'cha know?

So I've been meaning to get into shape for a very long time now, but my problem is that I can't find any physical activities that I really enjoy doing. I bike to and from work everyday, but it only takes about 20-30 minutes both ways. I wanted to do something extra, and for a while I ran 2-3 times a week, but since it's definitely one of my least favorite activities it only lasted a month. I would find any excuse to get out of it: too windy, it's raining, too cold, etc.

So now I'm trying to pick up yoga and pilates. I'm taking those classes where they heat up the room from 80-105 degrees. I thought it was gonna be nasty in such a warm room, but it's actually quite nice and toasty. So far, I've found out that I am totally not flexible, and that I have no core strength whatsoever. I can't even sit up straight with my legs flat in front of me. I was seriously sore from both the yoga and pilates class. But I think it's a nice challenge. Hopefully I'll stick with these classes and become stronger and more flexible. I can't wait to touch my toes!


Since all the Harvard kids have midterms on or before Halloween, they had to create midterm-o-ween so they could all dress up and get butt drunk.

Here are some pics from the party:
This is me and Carlos as a lovely Bavarian couple. Yes, I made Carlos' costume too. =) Not bad eh?

This is Cressida, one of the girls that I knit with and the host. She sewed every single sequin on to her costume. Isn't she insane?

This is Mary (another fellow knitter), with her boyfriend. Can you guess what her costume is?

Lorena (knitter also), a power puff girl.

The goth couple (Dave and Haley)

President Adminijad (Mike) with uranium and one of his 72 (virgin) wives. Of course, he chooses the devil (Kathryn).

Dorothy (Joyce) and a burglar(?)(Dan)

Then we've got Pablo, proudly representing the only Olympic medal in Ecuador for speed walking. Carlos is loving this costume because that's all Mexico has too.

Here's Simon as one of the characters from Life Aquatic. (Not my favorite movie-I fell asleep)

It's JAZZERCISE TIME!!! Oh yeah!!!

And what is a party without the classy divorced couple, Britney and K-fed?

Hope you enjoyed the pics!!!
Happy Midterm-O-Ween!
