If you do this, I apologize. For some reason some posts bother me while others don’t phase me.
But anyway…I hate Facebook yet I find myself checking it constantly. I do think it has it’s merits (on occasion) but for the most part all it does is tell me way more than I need to know about people I probably don’t care about.
I subbed a class last night. The instructor used to have a really loyal following but that was years ago so I just wasn’t sure what I’d be walking in to. Thankfully the turnout was good and while the energy was a bit low, they worked hard and seemed to enjoy the class.
At NYSC most of the classes are 45 minutes with a few “Super Spin” classes mixed in, which are 60 minutes. Both of my regular classes are only 45 minutes so when I have to teach a 60, I either need time to modify a playlist or have to act on the fly.
Last night it was a bit of on the fly as all the rides on my ipod are only 45 minutes long. So what did I do? I put in a CD copy of one of the rides, used the first two songs there, and then switched over to my ipod for a 45 minute ride. I don’t think it was exactly an hour, but it was closer (and no-one complained).
In other areas…
I feel like there are so many things I want to do but free-time is always an issue. At least weekly I find myself daydreaming of a time when I have consecutive days of leisure during which I can do the things I want to do.
A couple of examples:
- After my grandfather passed away (three years this May), I took a whole bunch of his old shirts with plans to make a quilt, or some quilt style pillows.
- Spin rides. I need to sit down and make a few instead of doing the one-off thing the night before a class.
- Clean out and organize the garage (which hasn’t seen a car in ages).
The quilt item is at the top of my list and also probably the most time-consuming. I had done some research and bought some of the required materials, I just haven’t had the time to do the work. I really need to work on that.
Spin rides would be nice but at the same time I really could continue with the last-minute planning.
And the garage must happen, it just has to be a coordinated effort between DJ and I which makes things that much more challenging.
Does anyone else just wish for a block of days to get things done?
In theory a weekend should accomplish this, but it’s so rare that there is nothing else going on, so it just never happens. And I guess I could use vacation days to accomplish this, but a) I’d prefer an actual vacation and b) I don’t have many days to take.
Happy Fat Tuesday!!!
