Where have I been?!? That was what you were thinking, right? Haha, well let’s just say it was. I’ve been taking summer classes which, for those of you who don’t know, is basically compressing a semesters worth of class days into about a month. This summer I’m taking 2 classes on Special Education which are part of my college’s SP curriculum. It’s a pretty fun class, it’s just tiring as all hell.
We got to do a social experiment today where we went to the mall and pretended to be blind/be in a wheelchair. It’s for a paper we have to write and besides being an eye-opening (no pun intended) experience it was also challenging(I bumped into a lot of things…and people). The week before we had to create a booklet on learning disabilities and give a report on them. We also got to watch “Adam”, which is a movie about a guy with Asperger’s.
That’s the short summary of what I’ve been busy with lately. Hopefully, I get to post more interesting things before the summer is over. Our batch is headed into junior year which is probably the most academically challenging part of our undergrad days (senior year is a league of its own) so it might be a little tougher to post then, but we’ll see.
Pretty much two of the things I love dearly right now. Florence + the Machine’s “Seven Devils” and Game of Thrones. It’s a beautiful video, probably something you could show people who haven’t watched the series or read the books to convince them to watch/read it.
Even though it’s Sunday here already, I want to write about the awesome Friday I had. ‘Cause that’s just the way I roll. Deal with it.
So, last Friday started like any other Friday before it. I woke up at
4.30AM (okay maybe it was 5AM), got dressed really quick and headed out with my sister. Her class is at around 8 and mine is 7-7.30, but she gets to school at around 6.30-7 because her school is closer. I get to school a few minutes after just in time for my P.E. class at 7AM although our teacher usually has us start at 7.30.
Now the P.E. I have this semester is Weight Training. We start off with crazy aerobics—the go-up-and-down-on-an-aerobench-with-matching-arm-movements kind—and then do whatever the assigned weight program we have that week tells us to do. And this week it was strength training. The core principle of strength training is basically, a heavy load, but less repetitions to create micro-tears in your muscles so that they regenerate and become more awesome (clearly the last part was made up).

I doubt you’d need a Halloween costume with this.
I get incredibly bored sometimes. And in my incredible boredom I decide to fiddle around on Photoshop to see if my boredom can amount to decent shirts or hoodies. Apparently, the theme of today’s editing-induced boredom is The Shining. Isn’t Jack Nicholson menacing? I think this is, by far, one of my favorite pictures of all time mostly because it’s kind of funny and creepy/scary at the same time. The hoodie template is from TheApparelGuy on deviantART and I absolutely love his templates (I use them a lot!).
So, my godfather invited us to the (re-)opening of his restaurant, Breakfast at Antonio’s, which is an all day breakfast type place. We were supposed to be there at around 4PM, but ended up leaving our house late and running into traffic and basically ending up there at around 7PM. When I saw the menu I was pretty much torn between getting breakfast food or getting the lunch-y/dinner-y food they had cause I was so hungry and I didn’t think pancakes would’ve cut it. I decided to get the MOST AMAZING omelette EVER, it was a 3 egg omelette with bacon, mushrooms and cheese with a side of hash browns and a panini. While I was too hungry to take a picture of my food, my sister got this:
pancakes & sausages with a side of cinnamon covered banana & pineapple
