I am ok. I've been hitting the gym like mad and not getting tons of
sleep. I am a bit addicted. But I have a free membership with my
work, and it is amazing. There is a pool, spinning, yoga, pilates, I
have a personal trainer, I am starting boxing training and get to
punch things, there is a rad sauna and steam room...etc etc. And it's
in Westport, so it's all really fancy pants and nice. Consequently, I
am getting ill. My boss came in this morning with a big thing of tea
from Starbucks to make my throat feel better, because she is the shit.
I love her. This weekend is for recuperating. It's the first
weekend in a while that I have nothing planned, and my DVD arsenal is
well stocked. I rented a bunch of French films from the 60's (best
genre ever) including my favorite film of all time, Godard's "Le
Mepris". Plus, I'm house sitting for our upstairs neighbor, so I've
got some privacy and space for once.
I am starting drum lessons next week, and am starting fencing lessons
in March. I have been learning French in the car from a course on CD
that I asked for for Christmas, and it's going well. I tried to start
Russian, but two languages at once was getting kind of confusing, so
that's for later. My neighbor is going to start learning Polish, and
my best friend back in London is Polish, so we are going to try to
learn that together. Languages are fun.
I'm also joining an orchestra again because I really miss playing the viola.
My sister and I are practicing to perform at a local open mic
night...me on guitar and backing vocals, her on lead vocals.
Ummm...what else? I got a car awarded to me by a charity. That's
pretty cool. It's a 1990 Toyota Tercel. I have to pick it up this
week. I also got my first speeding ticket ever the other night. I
was going 70 in a 40 in my neighbor's BMW X5 that I've been borrowing
for the last few months. I have to go to court on the 29th. I'm
nervous! It was 1AM and I really wanted to get home. Bad.
Hoping to go to Coachella, but I'm not sure I want to (or can afford
to) drop a grand on it. Been trying to get Sony UK to get me a pass
to write some editorial and take pictures for them, but that's looking
In the middle of 6 applications to grad schools in Europe. STRESSFUL!
