Back to the Books & Bells

Back to school, Back to school… my Human Anatomy book (pictured backwards) finally arrived.  It’s been many years since I’ve lugged around one of these beasts; this one is a hefty 870 pages.  This will be the first of many courses for my PFT diploma, but I am pretty ambitious and excited about it!  Not sure if I’ll still be smiling like this come mid-term, but I figure that if I’ve completed two degrees already, this one should be okay!  I’m really happy with my selection of this correspondence program through NAIT, as it’s one of the only ones recognized by CSEP, NSCA, and NASM, so I will be qualified to write my national exams with them once I’ve completed my journey.

It’s finally Friday, after quite a long week.  Off to dinner at an undecided location… Tomorrow, Adam and I have lots of yard work to do, as long as the rain holds off!
