I’m blogging after a break of several months just to post about something I’ve been working on. I’ve been devoting pretty much all of my spare time to working on a website which gives the top 5 weird news stories of the day with a brief description observeabsurd.com it’s hilarious so please check it out. I plan on launching a stream of more and more sites. I may not post here anymore too often, but this site and future sites I will be updating regularly no matter what.
Ugh. Today started off absolutely terrible! I woke up at 1:30AM after attempting to go to bed around 10PM. My body will not let me sleep at night. Anyway, I had the goal of going job hunting around 9-10 this morning. Well, 9:30 rolled around and I feel asleep for 3 hours. This is my week in between summer classes and spring classes, so I really have nothing I have to accomplish. I sat at home putting off my run and played PS3 for a few hours feeling like a total bum!
Finally I took initiative. I hadn’t been able to do a morning run because when the sun came up I was feeling so sleepy. And it’s been EXTREMELY hot down in South Florida in the day time. 6:30 rolled around and I got off my bum and went for a fun.
Now I’d done some research about running online during the day. I’d been pushing and pushing myself to hit a sub 30 minute 5k. Apparently for a beginner to running that’s not a great goal. I slowed down my pace and just tried to enjoy running for the sake of it. It totally worked. Instead of feeling exhausted and drenching my t-shirt in sweat it was totally easy today. In fact, I ran 3.5 miles up from my usual 3.1 absolutely no problem.
I felt a little better about myself after the run and cheered up a bit from my sulk-in-boredom and self depreciating attitude. I could have kept running for at least another 10 minutes fairly easily, but it the sun was setting and I did not want to miss another pick-up soccer game.I got home, showered because I was not smelling rosy, and hit the field for a solid hour + of play.
I’m home now, I showered again, washed my hair, and I’m rewarding myself with a carb filled dinner. Brown rice, boiled mushrooms and onions, and terryaki sauce. I’m avoiding cooking oils the rest of the week. It’s smelling pretty good and about ready.
What’s even better is that it’s tuesday night! My TV night! I missed Lost, Glee, House, the Biggest Looser, and V. I’m ready to sit back and catch up on those absolutely guilt free.
I really wish I could enjoy myself this much everyday. It seems that if I just had the time and opportunity to run and play soccer everyday I could slave away behind a cubicle and still be happy.
