I want to become purposeful in my use of time. I tend to let the mornings slip away. I was laid off from work, and there is plenty I could do, but the Internet and puttering wastes time. I’m all for resting and laying about—up to a point. I’ve gone beyond that!
I joined Curves in 2003 and was amazed at the changes it wrought. I feel so much stronger and more alive. It’s very affordable to join, and I like how it’s focused only on women.
I have used both Mac and PC extensively, and Mac is the better computer, bar none. I own and love to use my 12-inch Powerbook. They cost more than a PC, but are far less vulnerable to hacking, viruses, and spyware. Now that there’s the Mac Mini, it’s within reason that most people can afford one. Definitely worth it!
In the past 27 days I walked an average of 2 miles a day, and I’m proud of that! I also feel much better. I found a neat way to track miles at http://mywalks.com. Check it out!
I witnessed how helpful and loving my in-laws’ church was when illness struck them. I live in a new city and am now pregnant, so I feel my husband and I need a broader community for friendship and support. I want to give as well as receive it. I plan to visit a local Unitarian Universalist church next Sunday.
I moved to Silicon Valley from Austin, TX last year. I’ve had some difficulty adapting to the dense urban environment. I miss my friends. But this is where I am, and I mean to embrace it.
I’ve always been an avid reader. New worlds open to me, and it certainly helps at games like Trivial Pursuit! I aim for a balance of fiction and non-fiction. Litearcy is the key to academic and employment success. Being well-read broadens horizons and helps you discover yourself. Here are some facts to consider:
One-third of high school graduates never read another book for the rest of their lives. Many do not even graduate from high school. 58% of the US adult population never reads another book after high school. 42% of college graduates never read another book. 80% of US families did not buy or read a book last year. 70% of US adults have not been in a bookstore in the last five years. 57% of new books are not read to completion.
