Last Assignment for 2011

When I submitted my last paper at 10:35 tonight, it felt like a giant weight just fell off my shoulders.  Of course I’ll have to wait for my marks, but the feeling of finishing the last paper of the term, of the month, of the year, of all the seven required classes for my masters degree in health informatics, It felt pretty damn good.  I felt like a miner about to climb out of a long tunnel preparing to see the sunlight.  2011 is about to come to an end, and I still remember setting goals for this year back in January.  I have somehow managed to finish six graduate classes, work as information analyst and personal trainer, and deliver one speech at the Belmont Babblers club in 2011.  I am amazed by how fast time travels.

I have also had a jammed packed weekend:

Saturday: 11 hours of writing and 5 hours of home inspection

Sunday: 7 hours of TRX suspension training course and 3 hours of writing and editing

I’m so looking forward to our Mt. Washington Trip this year.  It will be an awesome holiday to celebrate the busy 2011 and welcome an exciting 2012.

One thing after another

Many things happened these days.  Things just came one after another.  They are happening at a rate that I didn’t think my brain was able to capture all the information processed in my head sometimes.

  • Interviews = 0 acceptance
  • Hectic work life = 2 workouts/week if lucky
  • Wife = 30
  • RAL 30 party = 3 kegs, countless cups of beer, 4am
  • Preliminary thesis proposal = 12 hours of writing
  • Firewood = 3 truck loads
  • Crownwood = OMG!

I. Will. Survive.

Ssstutter

I came across this video while searching something online.  Besides feeling bad for her, I can empathize.  Although my stuttering is not as severe, it kills me every time when I stutter in public.  I think it’s really brave of Hanna to agree to do this video with Vancouver Film School (VFS) and explain to the world that stutterers work twice as hard, if not more, to do something non-stutterers can easily perform: speaking.  I truly hope Hanna can work with her speech pathologist, practice speaking techniques, and eventually overcome her stuttering.  I know these exercises work because they have helped me to correct my stuttering.  My speech therapist told me that if stuttering is not corrected before the age of 8, people will have it with them all their lives.  It’s like a disability.  The good news is there are speech exercises I can practice to overcome or lessen the degree I stutter.  Just like exercising everyday is good for our health.  Stutterers have to do speech exercises everyday in order to speak normally with confidence.  Good luck, Hanna.
