August almost done

Holy bat crap! August is almost done.
I have a wicked head cold! WICKED BAD! I am currently sitting in my apartment, with kleenex shoved up my nose- trying to alleviate the pressure in my sinuses. I am insanely crabby and I have to work tomorrow. I hope that it clears up a bit by tomorrow so the students don't get a crabby assed teacher~

Still no word on renewing my contract. Trying not to panic nor overreact. Keeping a smile on my face. I like where I work. I like the students. I hope it all turns out well in the end!

August is almost done

How in love of you know who, has August gone by so damn fast!? Seriously!? Man- it's scary.

The 2nd semester starts on Monday. Happy and excited. My contract expires in 2 months and one week. There is a good/strong possibility that the school will extend my contract for another year. I find out for sure next week. Keeping my fingers crossed. My gut has been in knots for week. I hate this not knowing part. I want to know so I can make plans accordingly. It's a "hurry up and wait game" now. It's a game I don't like but can't change. I can't force anybody here to work/figure it out any faster.

Still on my gym kick. Weight lost: nothing. GRRR! Trying to stay focused and not lose hope. Had a great hour long speed walk last night. I didn't stretch enough before or after so today my legs and hips are a bit sore/tight. My own stupid fault- I know better! I am going to have a late lunch/early dinner on my way home from work and then I am going to have a late-ish workout tonight. Gotta keep on it. Gotta lose this weight. Gotta keep my head on straight.

In the whole "clean up my life" effort, I've also cleaned my house and personal life. I dejunked my apartment here in Korea. I've cleaned up my life- friendship wise. There were a couple of "friends" who were really weighing me down emotionally- and now they're gone. Out of my life. Harsh- yes; necessary- VERY MUCH SO. To be totally healthy- all aspects of my life have to be healthy!
