In the classroom the windows actually have glass in them. If you’ll recall, the windows in the other buildings have been covered with white painted steel plates. From my seat I have a view of the area to the south of the unit. It’s refreshing to see something a little different. It sort of looks like an area where you might see a deer step out from behind a tree. Maybe I’ll see one someday.
The seats in the classroom aren’t too bad. I guess they are pretty much just like the normal individual desks that you would find in a high school classroom. I guess it’s going to take a few days to adjust to my new schedule. I’m pretty much starving right now. It’s about 12:45 pm, but I have grown accustomed to eating lunch between 11:00 and 11:30 am. However, this new schedule should be best in the long run.
I got a really lousy night of sleep last night. The bed that I sleep on is just so incredibly hard that it is impossible to lie in the same position for over a couple of hours, so I wake up a few times each and every night to reposition myself. What I wouldn’t do for 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep.
I’ve got to find some sort of way to get more padding on my bed. That’s my goal for this week. Not sure how it’s gonna happen, but where there is a will, there is a way.
I had a very good workout earlier this morning, and I will be able to exercise during the rec session later this evening. I was becoming burned out on the 3-a-day workouts, but I didn’t want to feel lazy by giving up any of my exercising. I’m relieved that this mandated course came along to stave off some of my ill-conceived thoughts and provide me with a physical break. I was able to make this morning’s session pretty intense. If I can maintain a fairly high level of intensity it should be a level of exercise and activity that is more realistic to what I’ll have time for during the course of a normal day once I get out of here. At some point this week, or possibly this coming weekend, I’m going to set some actual fitness goals that I’d like to attain by the time I get out. As in the past, I’ll try to devise a program that is apt to help me reach the goals. Once it starts to get cold outside, I’ll probably have to change some stuff up a little. That will be a quality problem to address at the appropriate time. Once it gets cold, that will only mean it’s closer to the time I’ll go home. Enough talk about home stuff. I hope I can get most of those thoughts out of my head for a couple of months.
