It only just occurred to me that I work at a university that resembles nothing so much as a country club, and that I can use its facilities for free.

First, there's apparently a decent climbing wall (top rope and boulder) open afternoons and evenings. Free for Stanford people; $5 for guests. I want to find people around Stanford to toprope with. It would be awesome to have a regular climbing partner again, since it's the only thing that gets me going every week, but I could also just go occasionally with random friends.

Second, I've been looking for a nice wood floor where I can practice Irish dance once or twice a week. I wonder if there's anything on campus that would work for that, maybe even a room with mirrors. I feel self-conscious if there are people doing other things in the same room, but I could probably get over that. (There's a Stanford undergrad from another CRN dance school -- I ran into her at the competition. She's in Germany for the quarter, but in the spring, I bet she'd dance with me.)

Third, and most trivially, I bet somewhere at Stanford there is a locker room with a nice reliable scale. At the moment, I weigh myself once a month or so by walking into Mission Cliffs and asking nicely to use their bathroom! I could just buy a cheap scale, but I dislike unreliable measurements (not because it matters -- it's just another litle OCD thing) and I don't really want to weigh myself often.

Oddly, this has nothing to do with New Year's resolutions per se. Fitness fits the "harder, better, faster, stronger" theme but it's not quite what I meant.
