I was reading Kathleen's journal and one thing she mentioned was that she had just gotten back to working out after being sick. So I felt inspired to start my journal that way. After finals week and the craziness of the holidays (just yesterday), my friend invited me to play football. So about 3 hours of that and two more of martial arts (doing mostly kicks to each other's legs) left me pretty sore today. BUT, it got me thinking, "wow that's a really good kind of sore!" So the point of it all IS: it's really great to get out and do stuff. This brings me to my next point, it's really great to get out and do stuff with FRIENDS
. If you pick good friends, they'll drag you out into life, and really, it feels great in so many ways. You get PLENTY of laughs (which came in the form of a touch game turning into tackle, and stealing my friend's candy
I encourage everyone to drag some of your friends out to do something fun. Also, I very much look forward to hanging with many of my friends at TO this summer!
As for the person that in part inspired this journal, I'm glad you're feeling better!
