Yes indeed! Student Loans are the bomb - until you have to pay them back :)



Yeah... won't be as bad for me as it will be for others though. I recieved an $8,000/yr merit scholarship on top of a few other little things... so my loans will only be about $26,000 by the time I finish. Considering the fact that it's a private university and costs in the neighborhood of $30,000 a year, I'm not complaining. But yeah, still won't be fun to pay all of that back.

Oh... and I walk about 2.5 miles today or so. I think I've been walking and not posting...

Wow! Now that was a nice walk.

6.5 miles, uninterrrupted, with a nice sunny blue sky. I finally got around to mapping a route that was longer than 6 miles. Legs were a little fatigued after this one, so I'll stick to this one for a while to build up some more leg strength.

Got in 4.5 miles yesterday too...

I hope I can walk tomorrow... I can already tell that my legs hate me.

I took the same 6.5 mile route that I took yesterday... but when I got back to campus I ran into some friends that drug me on a walk that worked out to be about 2 miles. So... covering almost 20 miles in the past three days doesn't make my legs very happy... but, then again, I guess I at least know that there's still muscle in there somewhere. I'll probably only get about 4 miles in tomorrow anyway, so a little extra today doesn't hurt.

And they were doing construction on one of the roads I walk on today... nothing drives me crazier than having to dodge dump trucks.

Wow, 20 miles in three days is great! Hope your legs aren't too sore. :)

Surprisingly, they're fine. I was expecting them to give me hell, but they weren't sore at all when I woke up this morning.

Okay... so I haven't been posting... but I got new thermals on Saturday and did 4.7 miles late that night to test them out. Then yesterday I did another 6.5 miles. There likely won't be any walking tonight... though my first jazz dance class is tonight. I don't dance... and I have no idea what to expect from a class titled "jazz dance".

Hasta luego, mis amigos!

I actually did walk after class because I needed to do some kind of movement that felt natural. That class must've killed my thighs moreso than I'd thought... I did 4.7 miles and my thighs were killing me and my calves weren't doing so hot either.

At least that class is only once a week... I could drop it if I were feeling really desparate.

I don't usually... but that's what the majority of the dance class was last night, since it was the first day of class.

4.7 miles again today... I've noticed that I've sped up some. Don't remember how much I've walked the last couple of days...

Jazz dance again today... which kills my thighs.

I might get something out of it... other than a dose of humility.

But, in other news, I also walked another 4.7 miles today. I need to get a light for when I'm walking at night... especially so I can walk some of the paths that I do during the day that don't have the best lighting.
