My school is the number one performing elementary school in the Albany area on the New York State ELA tests this year with 84% of 3rd graders scoring a 3 or a 4 on the tests.Congratulations.Curious: I know it's not strictly relevant to your grade level, but is New York still using the Regents track? And do you think it is a beneficial educational method?

The good aspect is that for the first time my boss at the TV station (in case most of you didn't know I work at my local TV station) let me use the NHTV (North Haven Television) Van where a good amount of equipment is when we need to film meetings and the like. It was freaking awesome 'cause I've never seen so much equipment crammed into a medium to large vehicle.
I just got my one mile run time down to 5' 38''. On a less Boo yah! note, I chafed open the back of my foot in the process. Ouch. >_<</p>

I was hoping to check my 5K time sometime this week to see if I can break the 20 minute mark, but I need to find some way to protect my ankles first. Running with open sores is not fun.

Running with open sores is not fun.Unless you are just a sprinter, you should easily be able to crack 20, with that mile time. I'd put you around 18:45-19:30 tops.
Also, a few days off made the weight lifting much easier.

My left brain gets this. The trouble is managing to do that without my right brain insisting that stopping for even one day will mean that I'm a fat lazy slob, and will remain so forever. If I ever manage to balance this, it'll be a bigger boo-yah than I think this thread can contain.
@misakyra: Well done, you've now made a Boo-yah sound like some kind of poo euphemism.
I have now a grand total of 4 bits set to indicate that I have achieved 4 things in the game, these are represented by representations of golden medals.

tomeeto, tomahto. The important thing is I made it 10 minutes every time I started a game.
It's "Tom ate toe", and I still want to play.
Today is my "coming out" day for being a music major. Booh yah!
