A Mess of Wood and Wire
Did you do drugs? Yes, back in the 70s. (New Years Resolution Week 2)
01/09/11 at 07:15 PM by Spartan789013
Ahh Drexel, I missed you. The city, the people, the armed robbery text message updates. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.

Of course, I'm disappointed that I left my friends at home to go back to school, but I had no choice. Reunited with many friends back here and began my 19 credits of classes. Fun.

Looking back on last week, I find my physics class to be horribly boring and I got my math teacher again (which is a major plus! (pun intended)).

As for the weekend, two nights of bumming out with friends and one night of partying with these friends.

I can't seem to turn off La Dispute's discography. Its absolutely fantastic. I would recommend it to anyone who has any type of interest in smart music and post-hardcore. As well as La Dispute, I grabbed a copy of In/Casino/Out by At the Drive-In, which is stellar nonetheless.

Anyways, back to my New Years Resolutions:

1. Getting in Shape

Alright, somehow I have to learn to write this in an easy, cohesive way. I have two work-outs when I go to the gym, properly called Workout A and Workout B. I go to the gym on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Each week, I do 2 of one of the workouts and 1 of the other in alternating order (First week was A, B, A. This week will be B, A, B.)

Workout A consists of: Squats, Overhead Press, Bend-Over Rows, and Assisted Pull-Ups.
Workout B consists of: Squats, Bench, Dead-Lift, and Assisted Dips.

For my future satisfaction and my current embarrassment at my weakness, here are my current waits for my first week of lifting ever:

Workout A
Squats: 65 lbs. (3x5 repetition)
Overhead Press: 50 lbs. (3x5 repetition)
Assisted Pull-Up: -40 lbs. (3x5 repetition)

Workout B
Squats: 65 lbs. (3x5 repetition)
Dead-Lift: 95 lbs. (3x5 repetition)
Bench: 65 lbs. (3x5 repetition)
Assisted Dips: -40 lbs. (3x5 repetition)

2. School Work Stuff

So far, I mentioned that my classes are overall relatively boring. As far as positives, my engineering class is playing with robots. I got a 5 out of 5 on my math quiz. Thats a good start. I just have to work harder on my weekends because I'm a terrible procrastinator.

As far as reading, I started Catcher in the Rye briefly, I intend to read more this week.

Reading Progress
Catcher in the Rye: 19/214

3. Record a Post-Rock EP

So far, my dorm is tricked out with a keyboard (that has a drum kit and other effects), my electric guitar, my bass guitar and my acoustic guitar. I have the first song all mapped out but I need to figure out what I am adding to it. It looks like piano will be in but I am contemplating string instruments as well. Also, I started working on a second song this weekend. So far, so good.

4. Selling My WoW Account

Last week, I was sick with one of the worst head colds I've ever had. This prompted me to sleep all the time and basically bum out due to the fact that I was, well, sick. During this time, I played WoW. I got my priest to level 85 (woot!) and got him some gear. Next, I'll be working on my level 64 mage, which should level real fast because they are completely overpowered.
