More RIM

And the first images of the Blackberry 10 London show up, after the initial Colt was scrapped. Personally I am feeling a pass on this device and am going to wait it out for their keyboard device. I am not sure if I can convince Rogers to let me do an early upgrade so I…

External J-M1 charger

My new package arrived from Futureshop! The pictures are from Crackberry.com (basically my favorite site right now). Its the external J-M1 charger for the 9900 Bold series. What is great about this is that I can now stop worrying about my battery life, which has been substantially worse than my prior Blackberries (9000 and 9700…

Lesnar and Vietnam

S bought me a life size cardboard cutout of my favorite athlete, Brock Lesnar. He now happily goes around the place scaring W as I hide him in places she least expects to see a monster sized MMA fighter. I love this guy. I wish he didn’t retire so soon. Watched the following workout vid…

eating out all week

Had some Ho Ho’s Chinese food in HUB. Good seeing the old chilling ground from undergrad, but kind of depressing knowing that just in the stairwell next to the table was a fantastic dorm where all my best buds used to be. Going to be starting another four years here at the uni, but it…

Happy Chinese New Years

Made a baked chicken with some special spices, cha siu, some suey choy and corn soup for Chinese New Years dinner. Pretty tasty and I more than ate my daily worth of protein today. Been kind of quiet and uneventful since I got in the program last night. When I got in the Masters it…

accepted!

Going to pick up my first car and got accepted into the clinical psychology doctoral program! Woooo! What a great Chinese New Years!

fat and sleep

This diet thing isnt so bad I guess but its definitely a bit of a change. I’m working on eating smaller more frequent meals and right now its so tempting to just scarf down my giant tupperware of lunch. But so far, I have divided it into two and eaten one half and twelve and…

eating right

omg losing weight is a nightmare! Its so ridiculously bad on my side. I can gain fat so easily it drives me nuts. I’m stronger than ever, but I’m also as fat as ever! Argh! This is really frustrating. I’m going to try reallly cutting down the amount of food I eat per sitting and…

Shark attack

So cool. The hagfish creates a mountain of slime inside predator’s mouths to choke them out and deter them from eating them.   Had a really good day yesterday. Although had to get up early, managed to get a workout at 5:30AM and then goto work, and then successfully defend my thesis proposal to my…

Phone and Camera thoughts

Of course while I am trying to prevent my friends and coworkers from thinking I am completely insane for supporting RIM in this terrible last few years (especially 2011), my Bold 9900 draws a JVM error and the operating system becomes corrupt. On top of that, editing my research stuff becomes this giant terrible thing…

This is basically what W is telling me. Stop taking protein. Stop working out. Stop going to the gym. Hahhhahah. I remember big Ron from the gym, he used to be the envy of all the regular guys. The guy was jacked, like somebody straight out of Pumping Iron (Arnold’s muscle man documentary). Then one…

In need of a push.

Exercise I have. Drive to push myself to the limits? Not really. I do have motivation to learn, particularly in areas where I had once had an¬†extraordinary¬†amount of passion in, but as of late have somewhat left behind. In particular, I have been finding myself much more interested in the ecology field once more, especially…
