Now that my graduate work and volleyball season is done, I have a lot more time to myself. I almost don’t know what to do with all the time.
I have been working out for 30-45 minutes every night (yay me!). It is helping me feel better. I need to strengthen my muscles in my core and back, but first work on healing my shoulders from some major knots and pain I am having in them. So, I am trying to take it somewhat easy on my workouts.
I have also been back to reading books every night. My most recent read is that of Intensity by Dean Koontz. A fellow blogger recommended this book to me. Let’s just say that the title of the book is exactly what it is….intense. It’s about a killer living “with intensity” as he craves feeling all worldly sensations and a girl who just happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. The book was so intense that I could not put it down. I read all 430 pages in two nights and found myself wanting to skim at the end so I could find out what happened. A GREAT read. I highly recommend it, but it you get queasy easily over reading murder scenes I would recommend you maybe not read it. Or, you just skip over those parts. It does get pretty detailed in some parts and there were parts were I definitely gagged over the details provided. All in all, I would highly recommend this book!
I am now working on reading The Memorist by M.J. Rose (suspense/thriller) and Hero at Large by Janet Evanovich. I am also studying for the GRE and finishing up some grad school applications. Basically anything to avoid watching television because I CANNOT STAND holiday shows this year. They just make me angry. So, I do other things instead.
