a revelation Mar. 14th, 2006 @ 06:49 am
it's 6:30 am on a tuesday morning. i'm awake. i have class in 3 hours. and i'm up because i'm trying to get my sleeping schedule back on track after a spring break week of going to sleep at 5 am. i'm doing the old "stay awake for 36 hours so that when the night of the second day comes, im actually tired at the right time" trick.

anyway, so i'm sitting here and i had a revelation. this is crap. why do i do this? why do i put everything off to the last minute? i have projects due this week, physics homework due in 4 hours that's still not done and i had the last three days to get it finished.

it seems like everything is coming at me too fast and even though i know i can manage it, for some reason i choose not to. i need to learn some self discipline. it's time for some will power. so, back to the revelation. think of it as a late new year's resolution.

1. i will not sleep for more than 9 hours a night. on any given night.
2. the amount of time spent on tv, movies, etc in any day will not surpass the amount of time spent on things that will actually be useful to me.
3. i'm in school to learn and even though i haven't learned much over the last 4 years, i might as well finish strong and this physics class looks like it's about to teach me something interesting. so i might as well pay more attention - i'm in class anyway - cell phone games can wait.

so there we go, the earlier new year's resolutions were all for my physical well-being. it's time to get to the mental ones.

for those who are wondering about my other new year's resolutions, i am currently at 145 pounds, i've been doing yoga and pullups and little things like that. some of my shirts are now small on me, however, a few of those are actually small around the biceps. the rest are small not because of the fat i gained earlier but because of the six pack which i turned it into. and although i'm not exactly will smith and you wouldn't use me as a washboard, i feel like my stomach could definately be one of those massaging car seats with the wooden balls. check back around may and i'll give you the washboard update.

and now, it's 6:45 and if i don't finish this phyics hw, i will be very angry with myself so... wish me luck - tonight will be the first of many 9 hour sleeps.

(ps, the current song... i'm sure most of you have heard it and i'm sure most of you can't think of it right now but get it and listen to it. it's very uplifting)

this deserves an entry.

last night i was making stir fry. the last step was "continue to simmer on low heat" which i did for several minutes and then took the skillet off the fire, emptied it into my plate, went back to the bedroom and ate my delicious dinner. take note of what i didn't do because this will become important later.

i ate dinner, did some work and went to sleep around 5 am.

i woke up at 9:30, got dressed, went to class.

i came back from class around 2 pm, opened the door, walked in and thought to myself, "self, what is that smell? oh shit that smells like gas... a lot!" now i consider myself to be pretty adventurous, but i've seen enough movies to know that you don't fuck around with a room full of propane. i carefully tiptoed to the window (which was thankfully open), making sure not to touch anything that could possibly be statically charged then i held my fan that was next to the window as close to fresh air as i could, crossed my fingers and turned it on. thankfully, there was no boom. i turned the fan to face outward, tiptoed out of the apartment, locked the door, and ran like a little girl.

i went to wendy's - it's far enough that broken glass wouldnt hurt me as my windows shatter and close enough to hear sirens - i felt it was a good choice.

i came back an hour later and cracked the door open just a little to see if it still smelled. it did, but not as much. this time i tiptoed with more gusto and got up the nerve to lean over the potentially statically charged couch and open the rest of the windows. i did so, again with no boom, tiptoed back out of my apartment (still with gusto), locked the door, and skipped away - this time more like little red riding hood. the balance was almost restored.

i just came back to my apartment. this time i opened the door like the man that i am. the apartment was gas-free, albeit 20 degrees with the windchill. now im sitting here writing this entry with my heater on full and my temperature almost restored to the perpetual sauna that is...

to guys Dec. 20th, 2005 @ 08:34 pm
so here is what girls look for in guys. well, i can't generalize like that so actually, here is what one crazy girl looks for in guys... (and by crazy, i mean awesome - please don't kill me). i'll keep this anonymous.

question: what do you look for in guys?
and i hate saying he HAS to....because for the right person, you're always willing to negotiate
but, i have a hard time seeing myself with someone who isn't outgoing or a risk taker for example
and i'm usually drawn to charismatic people who are pretty gregarious
and, yes, i've been known to be with international men
and i mean it's important that they're passionate about travel, foreign languages and culture, and the arts
or can at least, be open to those things, because those are really important to me
so clearly i'm attracted to other ppl with those shared interests
but in the end, i just want to be with someone who values me and makes me laugh
oh! and challenges me and makes me a better person when i'm with them
and that's my best friend

... well said :)

i'm fat Nov. 30th, 2005 @ 01:24 am
i gained 16 pounds in the last month and a half. what gives? i'm sure some of it is muscle, but still. i am currently at 141 and am slowly losing whatever hint of a six pack i had left from my diving days.

early new years resolution - get back 6 pack, convert whatever weight i gained into muscle.

as such, i will be very sore over the next couple of weeks. please handle with care.

hot diggidy Sep. 26th, 2005 @ 06:53 am
it's done. about 5.5 miles.
here are the results:

1. i am not in the shape that i used to be.
2. i am not in the shape that i would like to be.
3. however, i got my first cramp at about 4.5 miles
4. so i am in better shape than i thought.

and with that - fuck you pablo. you're going down.

i feel like this deserves an entry.

it's 5:30 am. it's 65 degrees outside. and i'm about to go on a 5 mile run.
keep in mind that i have never run more than 2 miles in one go.
i have never worked out in a gym.
i don't own running shoes.
and i didn't sleep tonight.

for all those who couldn't decide whether i'm crazy or not, now you know.
