not enough sleep

Class has begun. So far so good? My professor uses power point like it's going out of style. Nothing fancy, mostly text, a few scanned pictures thus far. Took like an hour to get into the room, though. Heard mixed things about the prof. We're studying blood. Hopefully this means I can ace my first exam. Five exams, one is dropped. I don't know about anything else in the grading policy. Seven week classes can be a challenge. But, I should get it done quickly enough.

Today FitDay and SparkPeople are 100 calories or so different.


And in the morning.. (I forgot to post last night). I'm, well, tired. 6 hours of sleep isn't enough. I really shouldn't get to bed at 1am. Doesn't give me enough sleep, and then I wake up like I am now, grogggy. I gotta get organized to run off to workie.


I'm sleepy. I wonder if I can get to the morning yoga thing at the gym. I can take the train in, do yoga (starts at 8:30), get to work, take the train home. I'm feeling a bit beat up from getting back in to biking, and it's nice to have a day offa school. Sad I won't get much sleep, though. I wonder if I can muster leaving the house by 7:30 if I wake up at my usual time - 3 alarm clocks between 6:45 and 7:15 with snooze snooze snooze. It would be nice to get the morning yoga done, though, and have a day offa biking. Two weekdays off would be nice (wed and Friday) and then doing a training ride on the weekends would be super, and mebbe try running. I managed a whole mile (well, almost - gave up on the hill at the end). Right now, my legs are just sore. And I think I'm too dehydrated to drink wine - I wake up groggy sometimes.

School seems okay so far. Class is starting dreadfully late since the classroom is in a computer room that needs to be unlocked before we can begin. Not sure why he needs a computer room to show us a power point presentation when he could just as easily get a laptop with projector in any other room. Not sure how it'll go. I want an A, of course, so I guess I hafta study. BLEH. When can I crochet if I'm studying?

MS Bike Tours

I'm going to try to plug for some donations to the National MS Society. I have $250 minimums for two rides:

The Pennsylvania Dutch Tour

The City to Shore Tour

Both rides are raising money for the local (tri-state) chapter of the National MS Society. They provide assistance to local people living with MS, as well as offer research grants to find effective treatments and perhaps a cure.

I'm looking for donations, people that want to join either team, (I'm going to start setting up some training rides) - but I think you can join a team and just volunteer without having to actually bike the routes.
