Each year, I get a spousal allowance which I can spend towards taking classes or joining clubs, etc. It’s one of those things which if I don’t spend, I don’t get in cash. So I’ve been taking piano and music theory and I took a knitting class and now I’m taking rowing lessons. Today I went out to the Pandang Resevoir where I learned how to capsize my shell and then get myself out of the shoes which are tied into the boat and then bring myself and the boat back to shore. I do like to row, it’s really nice being out on the water, but I think joining this club might mean that I get the chance to row single scull by myself. The boathouse is actually pretty far from the water and I’m not really sure I can carry a single scull from the boathouse to the water. At MIT there was the boathouse and 20 feet later, there was the dock. Here it’s about 250 feet, a flight of stairs, a left turn and a steep ramp down to the dock.
