I think I’m finally starting to get into the swing of school. There was a kid in my class the other day who informed our teacher that he was now mentally there (after two weeks). That got me thinking. I had been doing my homework and blogging, but I wasn’t getting the ideas I was hoping for. My heart and mind took a little while to catch up to one another.
I also had another shiny revelation today: exercise really does help you focus! Usually I just feel more centered with myself after exercising. Then there I was today, sitting on my leopard printed couch, firing through my Spanish flash cards. To clear up any questions, the couch is covered with a leopard print comforter…and it is not mine. Either way, my memory was working overtime with ease, and it was swell.
That brings me to my Blerd (Blog Word…I added the e just for grammatical spite). That word is Focus. You all know what focus means, but I found it interesting that Webster’s Dictionary said it was “the point where rays of light, heat, etc. come together…” Meaning, the light in your brain coincides with the heat you’re producing from that cardio session.
Eh, okay, I agree that’s a stretch of the imagination, but still way more fun than what Mr. Webster meant.
