It feels like it has been an eternity since I’ve sat down to write a post for this blog. I could blame my lack of writing on the busy holiday season, or on the fact that I was having too much fun with my free time in between semesters, but the truth is I have felt completely uninspired to write anything. It is not that I haven’t pondered anything or had anything interesting happen to me over the last couple of weeks, but I’m just not sure how to start again, or where to take things.
Maybe I’ll start by just catch up to today. Holiday’s this year were AMAZING. I was able to be home in Winnipeg for the first time in a number of years for Christmas and really enjoyed seeing my family. I think my favourite part was watching my little cousins be caught up in the wonder, mystery, and joy of the season, but I also enjoyed stuffing my face with all of the Christmas treats. I also was able to spend a couple of days with my wife’s family and had fun watching hockey, relaxing, and eating with them as well
The Holiday Season is now over, and its time to get back into the swing of things with work, school, and home life. This semester I am taking 5 classes which end up including 3 different volunteer projects. I will be observing and assisting in a classroom, working with an ESL student in another, and have the opportunity to choose one area of volunteer for the third. I’m thinking I’m going to choose something that has to do with students who have special needs so if you know of any places in Regina that need some help, please feel free to leave them in the comment section and I’ll take a look. I am really looking forward to being able to get out of the classroom and actually interact with students and workers in the field. I also have a feeling they will give me some good experiences and some interesting stories.
My wife and I have also decided to do P90X (at this moment, I’m on Day 5 of 90). P90x is a workout series that I’m hoping will be able to help restart my healthy eating and living habits. I have written before about losing weight, and I’m hoping now that I can take things to the next level with this workout. Maybe when I’m finished, I’ll post some before and after pics.
Well, I guess that’s everything for right now. It feels good to step out of my writer’s drought I hope you were able to spend some time with family and friends this Christmas and also to take sometime for yourself to reflect and refocus. Enjoy the hot weather we’re having by taking a stroll with a friend, family member or pet. Peace.
