Oh Look, Krill!

Oh don't worry. Whales don't eat clownfish, they eat krill.

1) A gathering for friends after not meeting for months.

2) Playing Rock Band for the first time and found that I don’t suck too badly, unless it’s the drums then I have absolutely no coordination at all.

3) Pizza. ‘Nuff said.

4) An ice cold Coke to quench the parched throat. Pretending to be a rock star and ‘singing’ is not as easy as it seems. It’s a good thing it didn’t rain when it was my turn to be the ‘singer’.

5) Chips, chips and dips.

1) Not having yoga today means that I get to go out after work.

2) Going into town to people watch, have coffee and fondle some books at the book store.

3) Despite not wanting to get anything, the 20% off at the book store was too hard to resist so I bought a book or three.

4) The last minute plans got cancelled at the last minute, meaning that I can attend the gathering that we’ve been planning for weeks.

5) Spending a lot of time in my head isn’t so bad since some of the stuff that I come up with makes me smile and while it may make me look a little insane, it makes me happy and able to get through the day.

Back To The Gym

It’s been four months since I last went to the gym and in that time, I’ve gone soft and I’ve gained at least two kilos. Not only that, I’ve been feeling heavy, sluggish and out of sorts.

I didn’t use to feel this way when I was going to the gym regularly. I was happier and more in control of my emotions and temper. Since the last time I’ve been to the gym, I’ve lost control of my temper and emotionally, it’s been a roller coaster ride. Couple that with a monthly cycle that isn’t all that comfortable, I was not a happy camper.

So for the first time in months, I went to the gym today.

Even though that I only spent twenty minutes in the gym, which I spent running on the treadmill with AC/DC, Dethklok and Bruce Dickinson for company, I felt really good afterwards. I felt lighter and more in tuned than I have been in a while.

I need to start going back to the gym regularly, even if it’s just to walk on the treadmill for twenty minutes. At least it’s a productive outlet to purge that negative energy.

Hopefully, I get to go to the gym at least twice a week, yoga on Fridays and maybe swimming on Sundays. That way, I hope that I’ll tone up and reduce the bulge.

1) Flavoured teas: Early Grey for the mornings, Lady Grey for relaxing after work.

2) Taking a walk through the mall after work helped me relax and get back into the groove. Not fully there yet but I’m getting there.

3) Getting the flash drive MP3 player to work on my Mac. I get to work out with proper music now.

4) Talking to The Significant Other always helps when I’m in a bind. That man is a fountain of good ideas.

5) Feeling like I’m getting my groove back after that wonderful phone call.

Mama Needs A New Groove

I’m glad that the work day is ending. I’m in a mood today. It feels surreal yet totally fucked up. I feel like I’m going through the motions without really being there. Have you ever felt this way? It’s like I’m totally out of sync with the universe.

I guess it could be that I’m having trouble juggling work and school, even though I’ve only had two weeks of school. Being a full-time lab rat and a part-time student is totally different from being a just a full-time student or even just a full-time lab rat.

I’m so used to be the lab rat that when the student side of me comes out and play, they disagree and a fight ensues.

The body is tired but the mind is on over-drive. This means waking up more tired than before I slept.

Simply put, I’ve lost my groove, my mojo, Baby. And I need it back.

I need better time management since I really suck at that. I read some of the tips online but I can’t seem to apply them. Does anyone else have some other tips? Other than not spend too much time online (because seriously, that will not work on me).

Help. Please?

1) Making my own Chai Tea Latte. It turned out ok but it just needed a little more spice since I could barely taste it over the milk and sugar.

2) Having dinner as family, sitting around the kitchen table and enjoying barbecued fish.

3) Finally settling on a new blog layout, after spending a whole day of tweaking and discarding and tweaking and discarding codes, the whole day.

4) Salt & vinegar chips

5) Not having to go to work today.
