Incoming 1Ls / Re: I just bought a SONY Vaio S150

Mine was about $600 less than retail. 

I chose the particular model because of size, brand, memory, and specs.  It's a great computer...and I definintely recommend going to the outlet!  I got my digital camera there 2 years ago, and it's been great!

I like it.  Got a good deal on a refurbished one at a Sony outlet.  3-yr protection plan was only 99.99.  It's 4 pounds and the display is great. 

General Off-Topic Board / What is your favorite commercial?

There are so few good ones. 

Here are a few of mine.

1. The Sonic commercial where the guy thinks that the beginning of the word is not silent....w-rench...
2. The FedEx commercial where the guy goes, "you are always wrong." Fringe benefits, not french, Steely dan not one guy...

I got a waitlist too (163/3.71).  But, I've decided that I'm going to Pitt anyway.  I have to say I was surprised by the WL, but I don't really care.

I gained about 45 or 55 lbs in undergrad and have spent the last 4+ years getting rid of it. I have no idea how to balance study and exercise. Can someone please give advice on committing to a gym routine in LS (for someone who HATES the gym, particularly cardio)?

I really don't want to have to go through that severe weight gain/loss all over again. It was depressing and demoralizing.

I started spinning (in lieu of nasty treadmill cardio), and fell in love.  I've been an instructor for almost 3 years, and it doesn't get old!  OR, get a gym buddy who will make you feel like a bad person if you back out on them.  Gym buddies are great motivators!  No need to do the same workout, just commit to travelling to the the gym together or meeting there at a certain time.

that's a noble objective.. i suck at mornings.

either way i'll continue to work out while in school.  i'm thinking right after classes, and before any reading/assignments i have to do.  it may be a nice "break up" as opposed to trudging straight through all of my work.  then again, i may have a slight issue getting back to work after a workout.

i've been checking out a few apartment complexes outside of pittsburgh that have fitness centers, pending a decision to attend duquesne.  that, or there is a nice gym in shadyside just off of walnut street that my friend has been raving about.

Whatever you do, do not live in Chestnut Ridge.  I speak from experience.

I currently go to the gym 3-4 times per week, two of which I teach Spinning classes.  I'm thinking of continuing to teach, but changing from 6:30 pm to 6:00 am classes.  Then, maybe working out the other times in the morning as well.  I think being physically active is going to be so important to my sanity; taking out the stress of LS on the treadmill or spinner will feel great.

What are everyone's plans for continuing to stay/beginning to be physically fit while in LS?

I have a 3 1/2 yr old boxer, Ella.  She's going to live with my parents for the 3 yrs. I'm in law school.  Spending most of my time in class/the library/mentally unavailable, I'll feel extremely guilty that she won't be a high priority in my life.  Plus after selling my house, and moving to a small apartment, the 5+ acres that my parents live on will be very appealing to my pooch.  I'll still visit her once per week when we have Sunday family dinners.  So, if you're going to Pitt, have no family in the area, and you become my friend, there may be homecooked dinners in your future!  :D Haha.

It is in both the handbook and on the student resources area (both online).  The handbook is very helpful.  Long, but helpful.
