My love/hate relationship with Math!

This is me before I begin to do math homework, happy, skipping along and enjoying life... I open my math book and start to look at equations such as this one... and I start to feel like this aaaaaaahhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!

Get the picture? Yeah me and Mr. Math do not get along so great. In fact I would say that Mr. Math and I have a rocky, dysfunctional relationship. When I actually understand the concepts and it's all flowing we get along splendidly. But that is a rare occasion. For the most part I don't get math. It's like someone is speaking a different language to me, and I am so LOST!! It is extremely frustrating because, as many of you know, this lovely class is my one and only class left before I am officially graduated. I am not a quitter and I am not giving up, I will graduate, but it's just taken a bit longer than I expected, so I'm getting anxious. I wish I were more left brained like all the math lab people. But instead I was blessed with a very right brain. My mind thinks in images, feelings, etc. Which is probably why when I go to the math lab, I am more concerned with looking at people's outfits and what would look better on them. I have to repeatedly say to myself, "Bev, it does not matter that they have high waters on, you are here to do Math!" If there was a left brained pill, I would buy it in an instant, but until then, me and my very right brain will make the best of it!

Spain on the road Again...a pleasure beyond measure

Back in the Fall I was flipping through channels and stumbled across this show, Spain on the road Again. I was glued to the tv set. It had one of my favorite actresses Gwyneth Paltrow, and world known chef Mario Batali along with food writer for the NY Times Mark Bittman and Spanish actress Claudia Bassols. The foursome were hilarious and entertaining. They took a road trip across beautiful Spain and let you in on the culture, history and food they ate. I was addicted and felt like I was on a tour of Spain with them. I loved the show so much I bought all the episodes on iTunes. I thought I should share the love with you all, so here's a little clip. I am sure you will be as tempted as I was to go onto iTunes and make a purchase of one episode, which trust me will leave you wanting to purchase them all!

Felicity + Nyquil = A happier sick person

Last thursday I could feel the nasty cold coming on as I was leaving the gym. I'm sure you all know the feeling, throat closes up, congestion in the nasal area, eyes feel like they're going to pop out of sockets, and the pressure in the head. As I walked out of pilates, I knew I was a goner! I was so upset b/c there was the 3 day weekend and I had plans of going snowshoeing and doing other fun things, perhaps shopping. I did get to do some low key activities, but my bed was the main place during the holiday weekend. Luckily my friend had lent me Felicity. I'm sure all the girls will know about this show, the guys, I don't blame you if you don't. But lets just say I love Felicity! I love the show and the love triangle between Felicity, Ben and Noel, so good. So between my lovely drug Nyquil and Felicity, staying home sick in bed wasn't so bad after all.
PS. Out of curiosity who liked Ben and who liked Noel better?? I have always been partial to Ben, I know, must be his bad boy reputation!

Moi a blogger??? Apparently so...

So here I am blogging! I know, everyone's been doing this for years and I'm JUST catching the vision of it.  But with me I seem to catch onto things a little slower than the rest of you.  So I must say its a little stressful to start this whole blog thing.  I had to pick a title for my blog, the email and then don't even get me started on the look of the blog, which i am obviously still working on. A little overwhelming, but soon I'll be an expert blogger with the rest of you!!
