Brain Train, Minnesota Rate of Manipulation, and a Good Day

Today was actually a pretty good day. The first good day I've had in weeks, it seems!

We learned about Brain Train in the morning (a computer program that teaches patience, focusing, etc) – had a long break to work on projects – then had a class on the Quality of Life scales and the Minnesota Rate of Manipulation Test (or something like that). Then a class on Group, and then Allison and I went and worked out. I came home and started laundry, did errands, etc, and now I'm finishing laundry, finishing dinner, and then going to settle down and start working on homework. My goal is to finish several different OT-related projects tonight, since we have finals coming up somewhat soon! It's kind of crazy – every time I think we can give a sigh of relief, we end up with new projects! Oh well!

I also got my new camcorder (a Flip Ultra) and my graphics tablet today – it was my birthday present from my parents, which I bought on Amazon. So I spent easily an hour messing with those two things when I should have been more productive. The good news is, I plan to use both to my advantage, and use them for putting on lots more videos on my blog/Youtube, as well as add captions or silly stuff to my pictures! So both new items should enhance the blog experience.

I'm really good at rationalization.

Ok, I need to get my laundry out of the dryer now. I got stuck in rose bushes earlier, trying to get to the laundry area (across the garden in my landlord's house). For a few seconds I was literally unable to move. You can't make this stuff up.

I plan to put up some mini videos within the next few days, from today's Brain Train and Minnesota Rate of Manipulation Tests. My handwriting post will probably be the last thing I do tonight! My handwriting is horrible by the way! I blame my sinister hand!
