School Work

There is a point in most people’s life when they hit the wall and can’t do anymore school. For some that time comes in jr. high or high school. Perhaps that is why they do not go on to college. For others that time doesn’t ever come. That is how we get professors. For the rest that time comes somewhere in between. I hit that wall to some degree during my last semester at Weber State, but here at KU during the summer I was excited and did well in my classes. I know it’s sad, but it’s 2 weeks into the semester and I have officially hit that wall. In order to combat the urge that I have to just not do my homework I have done what I always do in these situations: set a goal! My new goal is that I cannot go to or watch football on the Saturdays unless I have done 2 hours of homework every day that week. I know that this is the only way that I can salvage my grades for the next two semesters.

Here are this week’s numbers:

Weight Loss –

Cecilia – This Week: 3.5 pounds Total: 18.5 pounds

Ryan – This Week: 2.0 pounds Total: 22.0 pounds

Morning & Evening Prayer and Scripture Study –

Morning Prayer – 6 out of 7

Evening prayer and S.S. – 7 out of 7

Tennis –

We hit the ball 47 consecutive times! Slowly but surely we are getting better, or just more lucky.

Exercise –

Cecilia – She did ABA 3 days and kick-butt home cardio the other 3 days. She is looking GOOD!

Ryan – Ran 27 miles this week. Ran 3.1 miles in 22:00.

Stay-at-home-mom –

Cecilia – She turned in both stories about her dad to her first competition. We might be getting some extra money!

Missionary Work –

I got to visit Jimmy Dean with the missionaries again this week. He is ready for baptism, he just has to decide whether to marry Peggy (his girlfriend) or move out.

TV/Reading –

We still have not touched our book since before the Olympics. My schoolwork has me very busy.
