On Friday night I went to the gym. Not my regular one that I signed up in, but rather the one closest to my house. I joined one of those 24-hr gym franchises. So glad I did. It meant that on Friday when I got the guilts for just sitting and bumming around the house all day, I could pack my bag, get into gym gear and go exercise - at 10pm at night. Loved it.
For starters, the gym space at this second location is bigger - way bigger. It had more weight machines and better layout, so that I actually have space to do ab work at the end of my routine. The gym that I signed up at, well, it's looking a little bit sad and pathetic. I even questioned whether I had made the right choice when I first went in. (I picked this franchise because it had locations that were most convenient to me - for where I am studying (1), working & living (2) and even near my mum's house(3) ). Now, as it turned out, I saved myself the $180 joining fee, because the (1) gym I use is actually going to relocate soon. Luckily, it's still convenient for me. It's little closer down the road, and its meant to end up with more parking, more change rooms, and more equipment. If (2) is anything to go by, then (1) is going to end up great!
The other reason why I liked (2) is it had better music! The music at (1) is crap. Even through headphones, you can hear it. Overall, (2) feels more modern and updated too. So I can't wait to use it again.
Although not today. Today, I'm off to a major celebration milestone that my city is putting on.
For a bridge.
Yep! One of Brisbane's iconic bridges is turning 75 and the city is making a pretty big deal out of it and making it pretty spesh. Tickets were only available online through an allotment? allocation? system. Not entirely sure how to put it. There were only so many tickets made available and you could only reserve up to 10. And they were gone within minutes! Like, 25,000-tickets-snapped-up-in-less-than-20-minutes kind of thing. I'm a bit worried about how I will go with the crowds today, but I've been having a good run of people interactions lately so I'm feeling confident? calm? Like, I have to leave the house in an hour, and I'm still not panicking yet. Normally, I'd have been feeling sick and dread from this time yesterday.
But so far so good. :)
Wish me luck!
