10th-Mar-2010 06:40 am - Not a real F-list Cut
I just went through and cut dead and deleted journals. If I cut anyone by mistake that shouldn't have been, let me know.

I ♥ my F-list!!

Ummm...Is a public post no longer an option?

Edit: NM, I had to post it, then when I went back to edit, public was an option.

Hi. I'm Curious. Have we met?

Seriously, as many of you know, I am trying to change this small corner of the world through sex and sex education. In a paper, due on Dec. 3rd, I am going to look at teenage sexual habits and I am going to try to take a global perspective. I already have some sources from the last big paper I wrote, but in this one we have to do some *unofficial, informal, qualitative* field work. These are the questions that I asked some of my former students that were willing to help me, as well as my niece in the 8th grade (her questions stop @ #10).

So, for the sake of me being nosy (any responses I get from LJ friends will not be included in my paper) I would love to get some responses on these from my flist. Under the cut are 18 fairly personal questions. If you choose to answer, comments will be screened. If you would like to answer, but don't like the screening skillz of LJ, feel free to message me or email knic26_at_yahoo_dot_com. If you don't want to answer, that's cool too. I am just curious as to the sex education in the schools** across the country and the world.

*these statements cover our asses for right now in doing a little project for this one class so that we do not have to ask permission from National Boards of Something or Other to use actual human participants. No names or identifying characteristics will be assigned to anything in my paper.

** Take the term 'school' to mean any time that sex education was or could have been taught in a formal classroom-like setting

***If anyone is interested, when I figure out how to get my school webpage up and running, I may post the final paper for you all to point and laugh at :D

Thanks a bunch for taking a look at what I've been up to.

Jamaican Flower
I have started walking this week. I am going to the cemetery after dropping the little man off at school and walking around once (a bit over a mile). As I build endurance, I will add more twists and turns, but the perimeter is good right now. This is a very popular place to walk or run, but I got some really interesting looks while singing "Every little thing she does is magic...everything she do just turns me on...." while on my trek this morning.

I have now lost a bit over a pound since the last time I trusted the scale, which is good :D

Almost back down to Jamaica weight. One more pound to get back to where I was two months ago and 21 more to go overall. YAY!

My weigh-in this week is exactly the same as last week. It is time to make use of the Student Rec Center and see what kinds of aerobics/dance/martial arts classes they are offering.

Not quite a pound off this week, but I have lost an inch and a half off the waist!

YAY!!! I have been doing pretty well this week (despite the cravings for Krispy Kreme) I even had a really good salad for lunch one day. Now, I just have to do more exercising.

I am going to keep working at this weight-loss thing! Today is weigh-day, so here we go for the week of Aug 1-7...

Down almost 3 pounds in a couple of was hormonal. Next week will be more of a normal weightloss.

EDIT: Hmmm...the old one moves too... how did I miss that?
From now on, these will be up on my Profile page...that's motivation, right?....except that I usually go straight to my flist....
29th-Jul-2008 02:19 pm - Losing it...Again!
A while back, I started dieting in order to loose 30 pounds before I went to Jamaica. I actually lost a little over 10, which I thought was really good. Unfortunately, I have found 8 of the 10, so now I need to get rid of those again, and really get down to where I want to be.

Today I joined fandomweighs_in and I also got the little ticker bar to help have something tangible to look at.

Yay for loosing some weight.

Now if I could just get a stationary bike or treadmill that had internet access....
