work lunch

Went to Kyoto with the work crew and ordered a mexican roll and chirashi bowl. It occurred to me that although my favorite sushi joint has a great chirashi bowl, it is cheaper for a reason. Its definitely better at Kyoto. Oh well! Food was great and lunch was awesome. The sashimi was thick and…

Abs and new gym equipment

Found these sweet Ab Straps at Winners for just 14.99. Attached them to my chin up bar and I finally have legit equipment for abdominal and core workouts at home! Super exciting and definitely tiring. According to the manual, my 8×8 routine is above beginner but its half the level of elite. Especially when its…

binge eating and chilling

Whew! A whirlwind of a week and just trying to wrap a few things up. The new move to the university is super appreciated. Much closer commute and big giant windows. Super awesome. This week I obviously had my fill of restaurant food. Yummy Indian take out, Koryo jumbo combo, a massive breakfast at Barb…

nightmare

After the nightmare of installing the Intel SSD into my desktop, I thought I would be well versed into the installation process. Unfortunately it would appear that this is not the case, and that in fact installing a new clean OS is much different than cloning the OS onto another drive. On top of that,…

good dinners and gym times

Had a really great dinner with W last night. She made miso soup, these salmon rice balls that were seasoned super awesomely and some seasoned beans. Super super good. I definitely feel lucky to be with someone so skilled and creative with cooking. I also had a really good time with the Smith machine in…

Enjoying the night

Had a little pizza yesterday from the freezer. Not too shabby, but nothing great. Delissio isn’t as good as I have remembered it. I added some deli turkey meat to make it a little more protein filled, but its kind of disappointing to have empty calories that are not that good. On the walk from…

T&T Supermarket love

Picked up my favorite bun at the supermarket filled with dried pork and omelet. Sooooo good. It has this sugary and salty sauce inside that just rips my taste buds into turbo mode. I had forgotten how good this bun was. Also had my last cinnamon bun and breakfast quesadilla at the hospital cafeteria this…

Wanted to go out with W for lunch at Gaya, but they were closed. On the hunt for lunch on campus we tried the Hong Kong cafe by College Plaza, but they have an indefinite opening. Also great. So we then went to the tried and true Buddy Wonton Seafood restaurant just off Whyte Ave…

mundane and what?

Its pretty amazing how much more aware of my metacognitive functioning I am now, in comparison to my undergrad days. It is unfortunate that I still feel a severe discrepency and dissonance between my ideal and actual self (forgetting which psychologist emphasized this in their system of psychotherapy). There is still much I have left…

desktop

So my desktop is really really awesome. I don’t really see any need to use my laptop at all when I am at home which is really really great. This is exactly what I wanted when I upgraded my computer- make sure that it was good enough that I didn’t think that having a 13…
