With a little over a week to go, I have been opportunistic during my spring break visit by going to the gym near my family. I cycled 5 miles and swam 20 lengths yesterday. Since participating in lacrosse and marching band in high school I have not felt as physically fit as I do now.
Many Doctor Who episodes later, I have finished Season 4. What draws me in each time is The Doctor’s perspective on relative morality and humanity. Unlike other aliens from shows I have watched (Torchwood, SG-1, Atlantis, BSG), The Doctor has empathy for the humanity of the characters around him, in particular by showing compassion in the most dolorous (grievous) situations. I am excited for next weekend because my boyfriend requested the theme to be Sci-Fi at our favorite nightclub to celebrate our birthdays. I plan to cosplay as Samantha Carter, searching for a pair cargo pants this week.
