So if you know anything about my life you know that since moving to Washington I have been trying to do two things: Volunteer at the Temple and volunteer at a speech clinic.

I have been contacting people about this for months, literally since July. It is now November. Finally I have started volunteering.

Yesterday was my first day at Evergreen Speech and Hearing clinic. I mostly did office stuff which is fine. You have to pay your dues before you get to do the cool stuff. Talking with the manager lady though I do think that soon I'll be able to at least sit in on some sessions and maybe eventually help out. But really I wouldn't mind learning all of the office stuff, it's useful to know how to the insurance stuff especially if I want to have my own little speech business.

Today will be my first training for helping at the Temple child center. I'll let you know how it goes afterward.

Well I just wanted to let you all know that I actually started my volunteer work and so far it's awesome.

The secret to yogging

First of all watch this clip

(What language are the subtitles?)

I have learned the secret to jogging .... Dramatic Pause ......


I have recently found that if I walk for about a mile and a half first I can jog for over half a mile. If I try to jog first thing I can't sustain it, get really tired and generally shorten my workout because I'm exhausted. But if I walk for first, a fast walk, while I read then I can jog for longer, I don't get as tired and I extend my session with a long cool down. In all I walk/jog about 2.5 to 3 miles a workout.

Seriously you have to try it.
