“We are all faced with a series of great opportunities brilliantly disguised as impossible situations.” – Charles R. Swindoll
I found this quote today and just can't seem to keep it to myself. There are so many situations in my life right now that I can apply this to. I would like to keep this perspective when things start to get tough. We just have to start looking at them in a different light.
For the month of April, a few friends and I are setting little weekly goals for self-betterment. We all need support and enouragement from time to time. Its part of a healthy lifestyle. Whether you find inspriation in a church, a book, a classroom, a walk around the campus Bell Tower, or listening to music - use the inspiration to fuel a new task or complete an old one. This quote was my inspiration for the day and now it will be my mantra for the whole month of April! Stay Strong completing this last month of class!

Award Winning bathrooms at Jungle Jim's
Contributed by Brad Fuller
What a crazy week it has been! Actually, it has been a crazy past four weeks. Like I keep saying, first semester of junior year is really really hard. But I’m learning a lot and I know it will prepare me well for physical therapy school.
This past weekend I hosted a hall activity where we went to Jungle Jim’s International Marketplace during the day (with a stop at chipotle) and I cooked an Indian meal for my residents afterwards. If you have never been to Jungle Jim's, I highly recommend it. They have any type of food you could imagine! I love to cook but I have never really cooked Indian food because it is difficult to find the spices and all the essential ingredients at Kroger in Wilmington. However, I took advantage of the Indian section at Jungle Jim’s and bought all kinds of spices to make different curries and dals. I decided to cook masoor dal with cinnamon rice and asparagus. It was delicious! And the leftovers are lasting all week. If you like spicy food at all, you would love Indian cuisine. I’m hoping to make a somewhat authentic Asian dish of some sort for my residents next month, any suggestions on what to make??

Every year students have to figure out how manage their time so they can get a few minutes into the gym. The need to stay active is important because the way one keeps their body shows how they keep their life. This year the students of WC are lucky that the school is providing fitness classes. The classes include spinning classes and “The Program”. “The Program”, which happens every Tuesday and Thursday, is a mix of weight loss and muscle building exercises. It is much like the workout regimes of “Insanity” and “P90X”. Last night was the first time that I have gone to “The Program” and I am not regretting it at all, even though I am a bit sore all over.
I walked into the axillary gym with a fellow student to fall under the trainers’ fitness expertise. We did everything from Jumping jacks to pushups to mountain climbers. The sweat that dripped off the body was earned as we worked the legs, abs, the arms and the chest. I would defiantly recommend “The Program” to anyone who is at Wilmington College. I mean it’s, free, fun, and only an hour long. I am really excited to go back Thursday night and burn calories and get even more Quaker Fit.
Welcome to the Wilmington student blogs, where several students contribute to this column.
