I received a notification on Tuesday that a photo had been added of me to an alumni website.¬†The photo is a scan of a page from a 2006 university yearbook. It’s funny that I have absolutely no recollection of writing this incredibly nerdy blurb, and yet I can wholeheartedly believe that I wrote it. During the 2005-2006 academic year, I had a position in the engineering student government as “Sponsorship Director.” The job was to try to find free money for events and publications. But, as with most things I do, I went crazy with it and got much more[…continue reading]

As I mentioned in this post, I was on a cruise aboard the Celebrity Century through the South China Sea for most of March. As promised, I’m sharing a post of just pictures of the food. It’s like Instragraming dinner but on a much more epic scale! I wish I had taken pictures of the menu each day. They had really fancy descriptions of each dish. I’m afraid the captions on some of these plates is rather lacking, and I’m grasping at what I think it was. WARNING, the rest of the page contains pictures of tasty food, most of[…continue reading]

I’m back! What? You didn’t know I was gone? Well, that’s a little disappointing. Then again, I don’t advertise on social media when I’m going to be away for weeks at a time.     So, where have I been? They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so maybe it’s best explain with a picture. Yeah, so I recently¬†got back from a 15-day cruise aboard the Celebrity Century through Asia. I traveled with my mom, her sister and her husband (my aunt and uncle), and another of my mom’s sisters and her husband (different aunt and uncle of[…continue reading]

Video Games Relapse

So, there haven’t been any updates to this blog lately. I have an explanation: I had a video game relapse recently. I mused in the summer that I didn’t play video games much anymore. But, as I posted in a Facebook post back in November, I felt like Dragon Age Inquisition would be the biggest threat to my training season. It has been so far. I have been very impressed with this latest iteration in the Dragon Age series. The story is compelling, the graphics are great, and the gameplay is fun. I got very immersed in the story and[…continue reading]

Blue Pill or Red Pill?

This came across my Facebook feed a couple of weeks ago. I thought it was interesting to think about, and the reaction comments were even more interesting!   The text reads: Take the “blue” pill and you will able to run injury free with your current abilities for the rest of your life Take the “red” pill and take 1.5 hours off your fastest marathon time, with an additional 5 mins each year afterwards, but you will stop running completely in 6 years. For those if you that don’t recognize it, the Red Pill/Blue Pill choice is a reference to[…continue reading]
