What's happening? Or should I ask, "What's cooking?" Since Alisa was gracious enough to write on a Saturday, I will too! First, allow me to set the record straight about the Jonas Brothers. I'm not saying I like them, or that I'm a fan. The music appealed to most of the kids in class, it brought energy, and you know I like energy! Also, they're my homies. Yup. They're from New Jersey. Of course, they've gone Hollywood. Who can blame them?
So today is another workout day. For the first time in a year I've been able to workout for one continuous hour. After 10 - 20 minutes on the Concept 2 rowing machine, I move to the Rogue Monster Squat Stand, with Olympic weights for bench and cleans. So there's the morning. After that, it's Khan Academy. Really. I'm trying to reach 100% on Statistics. From what I'm reading, Data Science is one of the new frontiers, especially with visualization software like Esri.

If piano isn't your thing right now, well, if you practice, it will be your thing a year from now and you will be glad you made the effort just like you did in PE. Change doesn't happen in a day, a week, or a month. As Rocky said, "Keep moving forward." Thanks for writing. Your ideas and comments make my day.
