More Randomness

~ My grades are in, and the lowest was an A-.  It will surprise noone that the ” – ” bugs me, but I’ll live.

~ Columbia has contacted me to tell me it wants another essay.  I also have to take an entrance exam because it has been over 8 years since I took the SATs.  From what they’ve posted of the content, however, it’s nothing to worry about.

~ I bought a Wii fit and, in the 3 days that I’ve had it, I’ve used it once.  Isn’t that how exercise is supposed to go?  It’s going to yell at me when I start it up again.  I like the thing, and I find its comments amusing.  According to the cartoon Wii board, my Wii age is 73 (my Mii bent over and groaned), and I have no balance.  Well, at the end of a very long day on your feet, how adept are you at fine motor skills such as balancing your weight perfectly evenly between left and right, and maintaining it?  Or is it just me?  That’s alright, I can accept the fact that I can be uncoordinated.  It’s not like that’s news to me or anything.  So far skiing is my favorite game, but I’m looking forward to trying yoga next.  As for the hula hoops… they keep hitting me on the head.  I’m better at catching them from the right than from the left.  I think we’re back to that coordination thing again.

~ I began the annual First Weeding.  I don’t think it has been this bad since I first reclaimed that flower bed years ago!  Most of the front is done, and I plan to finish that this afternoon.  Next I have to tackle the side flower bed, but that one isn’t so bad.  Having the iPod to listen to while I work makes the time pass better for me, although I’m not sure how my neighbors feel about my singing.  After considering it for a few minutes yesterday, I decided that I just don’t care.  If I’m going to be stuck with this chore, I’m going to sing and they can just suck it up.  After all, it’s not like I weed very often.  Which is, of course, part of the problem to begin with.

~ At work yesterday, someone ordered a series of books on making a go in real estate.  But then they ordered a book on boxing.  I guess if you don’t agree to buy the house they’re trying to sell you, they’ll beat you until you do.

    YOU ARE A STRAIGHT A STUDENT! Fantastic work, Aravis. You should feel really proud of yourself. And you’ll be fine with that extra essay.

    Loved the book buyer explanation. What a great mental image!

    Have fun with both the Wii and the wii-ding. (oh dear…)

  2. Always enjoy getting an update on your excellent grades. Does working in a bookstore improve your ability to find good sources for essays and other info?
    Looking forward to your garden photos. This is the year I have decided to let mine do its own thing and sprout whatever. I have moved soil back and forth so now have a mixture of plants in my garden. Yes – i even have reeds growing in the same soil, right next to cactus.
    Of course with my blog crashing I may have more time to get in there and get dirty. (in the soil that is)

    I’d get over that minus thing pretty quick. An A is an A.
    Those book orders always crack me up when you write about them.

    Cor Columbia!

    Good luck with the essay and test. Nice to see you’re up and about again… and skiing!

  6. Congratulations! on completing…and how exciting about the next step.

    I’ve figured out the trick to weeding…only plant 2 things. In pots. Now I just have to figure out how to keep the squirrel away.

    I can just picture you singing away as you’re pulling weeds! Congrats on the great grades :) And my little red dot is all over the place on my Wii Fit. I’m surprised I don’t have multiple broken toes based on my lack of coordination.
