It's that time of the year again where the country goes wild on material objects. I like to take this time to start taking it down, go inward, quiet down and reflect on the year gone by; this year is a bit different as I'm taking two classes which require a lot of focus, reading and writing. I've been balancing out my time pretty well, and my time on my yoga mat helps a lot with balance........instead of going to my mat with a specific sequence in mind, I let my breath guide my body into the next asana........Ahhhhh.........my practice is vital for me to stay focused and balanced. I'm still running and biking outdoors, even though I'm not a big fan of the cold, and something tells me I'll be taking it inside in a few weeks, it was 32 degrees here today; and my body can't appreciate running in that cold.......though I must admit once I get into a groove I feel really good, not to mention how awesome I always feel after....I love being one with nature, taking it all in......I suppose that's why I'm still exercising outdoors, as there is nothing better for my mental, physical and spiritual body than good old mother nature and all of her moods.
Chicago's Thanksgiving parade was a blast, I volunteered and was assigned to escort the performers.......my primary group was a wonderful group of young ladies from Chicago's Curie Metropolitan High School dance group; it was a wonderful experience. Seeing these young ladies excited to perform, watching them as their faces lit up as all of the hard work they put in was paying off.....Priceless! There was so much talent in all of the groups,dancers, drummers, singers.....It was a great way to start my holiday.
Whelp back to the books...... I'm really enjoying both classes they compliment each other well, but I'm especially enjoying my research class, never thought I'd look forward to the next assignment, nor that I'd actually comprehend and enjoy the readings the first go around, it usually takes me a couple of reads to comprehend heavy stuff....not so in this class....and I like!! Over the summer I took statistics, and glad I did because it's been very useful in this class.....qualitative......quantatative........variables......
populations....problem statements...... Ai yai yai! I'd for sure be one lost puppy without having that statistics class under my belt.
