Teaching Step Aerobics and What a Strange Trip it's Been...
  • 41. Never in my dreams did I think I would be teaching aerobics.
  • 42. First it was just looking for a class to take at the gym during lunch, then I got better at the class (Step), then they couldn't find instructors to teach at noon, then...
  • 43. The gym manager joked and asked me "So when are you gonna teach?" I said, "moi?"
  • 44. I was never someone who would say no before trying anything. Plus the fringe benefit of getting paid for working out - how cool is that?
  • 45. The last time I could not fall asleep all night was the night before my first class.
  • 46. Thought I would suck and it will be over with in two weeks. That was 1993. I am still teaching.
  • 47. Most class taught in a day: 4. Different Ballys clubs taught: 15. Earliest class: 5:45 a.m. Latest class: 11 p.m. Biggest class: 95 people. Smallest: 2.
  • 48. Total number of classes taught since 11/16/1993: probably over 3,500
  • 49. At the current level of my classes, I call a 4-beat move every 1.6 seconds, or 38 moves per minute.
  • 50. I get paid less than a newhire. Go figure.
Coming up next: Parts 6-10 Pet peeves, bad habits, little known facts, ideas and thoughts in one big o' postarama.

You Are a New School Democrat

You like partying and politics - and are likely to be young and affluent.

You're less religious, traditional, and uptight than most Democrats.

Smoking pot, homosexuality, and gambling are all okay in your book.

You prefer that the government help people take care of themselves.

What political persuasion are you?

You Are 32 Years Old

Under 12: You are a kid at heart. You still have an optimistic life view - and you look at the world with awe.

13-19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place in this world.

20-29: You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.

30-39: You are a thirtysomething at heart. You've had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!

40+: You are a mature adult. You've been through most of the ups and downs of life already. Now you get to sit back and relax.

What Age Do You Act?

You Belong in 1981

If you scored...

1950 - 1959: You're fun loving, romantic, and more than a little innocent. See you at the drive in!

1960 - 1969: You are a free spirit with a huge heart. Love, peace, and happiness rule - oh, and drugs too.

1970 - 1979: Bold and brash, you take life by the horns. Whether you're partying or protesting, you give it your all!

1980 - 1989: Wild, over the top, and just a little bit cheesy. You're colorful at night - and successful during the day.

1990 - 1999: With you anything goes! You're grunge one day, ghetto fabulous the next. It's all good!

What Year Do You Belong In?

Your Dominant Intelligence is Logical-Mathematical Intelligence

You are great at finding patterns and relationships between things.
Always curious about how things work, you love to set up experiments.
You need for the world to make sense - and are good at making sense of it.
You have a head for numbers and math ... and you can solve almost any logic puzzle.

You would make a great scientist, engineer, computer programmer, researcher, accountant, or mathematician.

What Kind of Intelligence Do You Have?
