I am blown away by today’s weather. Today I got up to head to the same school that on Monday I canceled due to snow…and today it is the most perfect day ever. Seriously. Sunny, 60 degrees…beautiful. (I know that’s cold for some of my friends, but trust me, it’s perfect.)
I ran outside for 6 miles too. I love when I get to wear my Phoenix RnR t-shirt to work out . I don’t know why, I just feel fancy wearing it. It’s a little challenging as it is navy blue, and sometimes I get bothered wearing a navy blue shirt with black shorts or capris (my usual color) so today I paired it with blue capris. Then I put on my black water belt…so I’m not really sure what I accomplished. A six mile run, I guess. No one is concerned about my fashion—I’m sure they are just wondering why somebody would run so slowly.
I started reading Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother by Amy Chua. There was quite a bit of press about this book when it came out, so naturally I have to read it. Here’s a link to the NY Times article about it, and here’s a link to the Wall Street Journal article. I’m reading the book from the standpoint of a child, a violin teacher, and a hypothetical parent, and it’s interesting thinking about her story from those angles. And my upbringing was a little bit “Chinese” as well, so I can definitely relate! Have you read the book? Thoughts??
