It's official, I've been SHREDDED!
Today was the first day. The workout was like The Firm (which I did last year) but shorter. It was hard, but short enough (20 minutes) to get through it. My boobs were everywhere though. I think I'll go look for a new sports bra tomorrow... they're going to hurt more than anything else.
On another note, I've been in a pretty bad mood all day. I'm in a youth studies class and we have a lot of speakers come in and talk to us about problems that the kids today suffer with. Well, a 15 year old girl who has dealt with gang prevention was going to come chat with us next week. She was 15 years old and already advocating for eliminating gang violence in her neighborhood; no doubt this girl was going to go on to bigger and better things. Well, we get to class today and the teacher was pretty quiet (which is not like him). He procedes to tell us that the girl who was going to come talk to us next week was killed by a gang member.
What has this world come to? I don't feel like I live in a bad place (Twin Cities, MN). I ride the city bus to school and feel fairly safe on it. Here is a girl trying to better her community by actively trying to eliminate gangs in her area and she gets shot. And by a gang member no less.
Pardon me, but this world is fucked up.
