February was a good month, but not without its frustrations.
The Good: I participated in my third CLLAW, I wrapped pro-bono projects with two different arts organizations, I imparted wisdom to Loyola students via alumni panels and one-on-one mentoring sessions, I also did my own research into potential graduate programs, I started training for the Shamrock Shuffle with Nike, I taught a workshop that I created that combined two of my interests.
The Bad: I think I pulled a muscle in my back and dealt with a lot of pain and stiffness for 5 days, and once I felt recovered from that … I rolled my ankle. (And possibly … re-rolled it a week later.)
- Total miles = 28
- Time working out = 15 hours
- Total workouts = 20
February in Chicago
My Strong & Sexy workshop with Erin
February’s progress on goals:
No Knee Pain
Success! Except I dealt with back pain. And then ankle pain. So … yeah.
I attended some events, spoke to some enrollment advisors and current and former students, did some more research into the curriculum of the programs I’m interested in. At this point, I know which programs I’m going to apply to (um … all of the ones willing to waive the application fee but also don’t require the GMAT or GRE, which is three programs in Chicago), and I know which one is at the top of my list. (The only one of the above that isn’t a cohort, to be honest, but I do really like what I’ve read/heard about the program.) So, there’s a chance I might someday hold degrees from both Catholic universities in Chicago.
I had so much fun teaching workshops at Vaudezilla, and I’m scheduled to teach Strong & Sexy again in April! You can sign up! (Scroll down to the workshops and look for Kitten Von Purr.)
More Focused Freetime
This is still a work in progress. It will always be a work in progress. I did log into one of those “teach yourself code” sites and started going through the SQL program. So I don’t feel like a total failure.
