Today, in words that rhyme
Rushed to statistics to learn about stats, but ended up sleeping until getting slapped, by Kim who sits next to me and eats a Luna bar, while we both count down until we get to depart for lunch with our buddies: Camilla, Herodes, and Eric; whom we have lots of fun with and absolutely cherish. From there it’s off to the library and our favorite room for dillydallying. By watching a...

About the Struggles of a Farmerworker
Ok so I had my internship with TABLE today. For those of you who don’t know TABLE is a nonprofit in Carrboro that helps distribute food to underprivileged kids in Durham, Chapel Hill, and Carrboro (orange county). On Tuesdays we have a roundtable session where we discuss an article we read about food issues and usually have guest speakers come talk and on Thursdays we mentor young kids...

Song of the day: In Transit by Albert Hammond Jr.
Today Kim and I went to Weaver St. Market and did some grocery shopping. On the way we were talking about how it’s fun to cook and share food with others. To gather about friends and talk and eat. We bought a giant cantaloupe and split the cost and the melon in half. I wanted some basil but the bag was too big so a couple of shoppers gave me a couple bucks and we split the bag. This...

Kernersville Rotary Club 4th of July 5k Run NEXT...
Yay I will be running a 5k next Saturday in Kernersville. My runs have been much faster the past couple days so hopefully I can get sub 20 minutes or at least close like before I tore my leg muscle. Blah that was almost 2 months ago but I can still tell its a weak spot. Plenty of stretch breaks and good stretching afterwards help. Working on getting a new bike. If i go with formigli it will...
True True and Scary
Start with a cage containing five monkeys. Inside the cage, hang a banana on a string and place a set of stairs under it. Before long, a monkey will go to the stairs and start to climb towards the banana. As soon as he touches the stairs, spray all of the other monkeys with cold water. After a while, another monkey makes an attempt with the same result - all the other monkeys are sprayed with...
I am exhausted! Training for triathlons is tough. Planning out my next one as we speak! Had fun with my peeps at Gourmet Kingdom for lunch but left my phone in a friend of a friend’s car and feel totally out of the loop and lonely. :( In other news, tomorrow is Italy’s independence day! Yay for Italy!
It’s amazing that after all I’ve done today I feel so energized! I just danced to Lady Gaga’s Love Game in my room, which reminds me of this video Camilla showed me today in the UL. haha Zumba tomorrow!! So pumped but I’ve never had this instructor so I hope she’s good. Scuz me while I dance some more… Yes I WOULD Katie. Not ashamed. You know you’re...
Ya learn something new everyday
So today my friend Camilla taught me to fence. I just learned basic foot and arm positions, how to hold the weapon, and how to get dressed for it. Then we just fenced each other. It was fun and hard. I didn’t know what to do with myself and apparently I was jumping all over the place. I think I will definitely try again! Thanks Camilla!
Sooo Here's What's Up
So today I did a Turbo kickboxing class (read: “so you want to be a ninja” class). haha it was hard core. I felt so awesome like I could take somebody down if they looked at me the wrong way. and my bud Katherine was there too so we are now partners in kickin butt! I also may have a future position as ambassador for an Italian bike company that makes custom bikes for people....
