August came and went. I worked out with Sean a couple of times at the weight lifting gym. After the first time, I could hardly walk for 3 days! I did squats, dead lifts, and bench presses. The second time I did squats and overhead presses... and miraculously wasn't sore at all even though I had increased the weight on the squats. It was pretty neat to be able to see improvement just after going 2 times. I was supposed to do what's called a power clean, but I wimped out after watching this video: power clean gone wrong
. Bad idea.
I did see an awesome meteor shower, probably the best I've ever seen. There was one meteor that was so huge, I'm almost positive that it broke through the earth's atmosphere. It was a fireball. As it got brighter and brighter, I thought, "Uh.... maybe I should... uh, notify someone?" But I think NASA was on their game that night.
I turned 25 on 8/21! I had a party where I mixed my work pals, family, and queer pals. I think it was a success. Check out my facebook or myspace for pictures. My friend Emma took me to see WICKED! That was incredible! I haven't read the book, but I definitely will now.
While my older sister was in Hawaii, she picked up some coconut syrup and chocolate coconut macadamia nut pancake mix for my younger sister, who wanted to give it to me as a bday gift. I decided to give it a try this morning, and made waffles for Sean and myself. They were delish! The kitchen smelled coconutty afterwards. :)
I've been taking rowing (sculling) lessons for a while, and recently had my 4th and final lesson of team rowing that comes with the package. Now the next step is to sign up for a membership! I made a friend in the last rowing class and we decided to be rowing buddies. I'm the kind of gal that needs to be motivated, and usually a buddy is the way to do it.
Ok, I guess I better do something productive. Boo!
