Spotify and FICO Score and Exercise

October 8th, 2015 at 09:26 am

Things on my mind (which is all over the place these days; I think it's because my new project hasn't started yet, and maybe I'm a little bit bored).

Spotify:
I signed up for the free version on my computer. I can't usually work with music on, but as I said, I don't have a lot to do until my new project starts up. I can't stop singing! If I told you my taste in music, you'd be horrified. I like any song I've heard more than 5 times, so there are a lot of songs I like. Oh - and I still remember all the words to all of the songs I listened to in High School (think: Duran Duran, Adam Ant, the GoGo's). My singing is pretty appalling; Taylor Swift (who I also like) would cringe. Thank you, Spotify, because otherwise I'd probably buy a lot on itunes.

FICO Score:
American Express said I could see my FICO score for free, so I did. Do you think it's real? I got an 849.... yay! Not sure what I'd actually do with my score. Is it like these Chinese "citizen scores" - hope not. If you haven't heard about that, google it - totally frightening.

Exercise:
After running two laps around the horse track and then walking as a cool down during F's soccer practice, my friend T and I decided we are definitely social exercisers. It's hard to do it on your own. Which is why I teach exercise classes. Tomorrow is the day I run on my own from the office. And it's cold out. Not that cold; I'm such a whiner! Wish T could go with me, but her job (elementary school counselor) allows for a 2 minute lunch at her desk. Anyway, I am a little faster than T, but my friend B is faster than I am. Need to find a running partner who gets lunch and is right at my level. Do you like to exercise with people or alone? Or not at all? Or only one type of exercise? If you are here in Santa Fe, you should come to the gym and work out with me, because I need the social thing when I exercise! We can talk about how much money we're saving by investing in our future health!!!

    If I lived by you I would definitely socialize with you and get exercise in! I was in my best health when exercising with some neighbor friends several years ago now. I just haven't found the right people again.

    Awww! It is hard to find the right people... You'll just have to visit!

    Yeah, I'd join your guys! Smile
    Just getting back into the swing of things after gaining back 3.5#. Been riding the recumbent bike (is that right, encumbent?) at the Y and reading. 4 miles on Tues, five yesterday, today I'm hoping for 6.

    And if you were a FB friend, you'd see that I post daily on the song of the day (in my mind). Most recent were Erasure and Yazoo (been on a Vince Clarke kick of late), Richard Thompson, and a various assortment of artists. Spotify didn't have Lightning Seeds "Pure" last I looked.

    I would love to hang out with you!

    There were a few things spotify didn't have (namely the Whatever song that my daughter loves so much) but they weirdly had the album by this tiny band called Crazy 8s that my friend and I listened to in college 30 years ago!

    I would love to join your exercise class too.

  6. Buendia Says:

    If any of you are ever visiting Santa Fe, you have to let me know first! At the very least, there are some wonderful walks!

    I do better with people to exercise with too! When I walk on Saturday afternoons with some ladies from church, I hardly even notice that we've walked 4+ miles.
