the weekend

Out at Remedy Cafe downtown. The atmosphere is clean, bright but not overly so, and the crowds are friendly. Lots of students studying here. Lots of Macbook Pros. Not sure if I’m mainstream or I don’t care haha. The food is good and drinks are great.   Had tandoori chicken and W had butter chicken….

Game changer! I’m going to sleep without working out today. Going to read instead. Tired now. Also I had lots of Indian food for lunch and it was delish.

Motivation for the gym: myself.

Just found my motivation for the gym. This is me in 2010 and I was way more jacked. Grad school has really put a toll on me. Time to go hard with the iron now. I used to be at this state and I will be there again.

omfg RIM is awesome today

Had a really good lunch with W yesterday that I almost didn’t want to stop eating. Corned beef mixed with bok choy on rice. Its unreal good and I really loved it. First time eating something like this, but to me, its an instant classic and something I would call comfort food. Had some teriyaki…

the weekend

I mean I think its obvious why I have gained nearly 30 lbs since my best weight lifting mass at 162 lbs. On top of the mass I gained by deciding to pump more iron, I also have been eating a ridiculous amount of food and loving it. Here is a tasty turkey club sandwich…

Music and pho

Dug up my old Sony NW-HD5 Walkman player from the grave last night to check it out. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice it was to hold a dedicated music player and how simple and utilitarian it felt in operation. Although a lot simpler than the iPod touch, it was nice to have a…

office

So I decided to decorate my grad school office with lots of pictures of things I like. It turned out I made too many pictures to put up, but I put them up anyways. Its not wildly colorful and distracting, but I like it, because I always felt that my office at school was cold…

Sexy audio

The Creative X-Mod, although wildly hailed as a sham and glorified equalizer sounds great IMHO, and really colors things up. It’s not analytical by any stretch of means but when this thing gets plugged in, it makes the full spectrum of colored love. As in, the music really shines (and in a very consumerist way)….

The weekend

Friday morning at the train station waiting to goto work. As cold as it was, it was simply beautiful to see the sun rise over the frozen field. Love the mornings.   Went out for yum cha with W on Saturday at Dynasty in Chinatown. Really fun and had a blast. And obviously way too…

sick

I’m struggling to get over a bad cold. Not so bad that I have a terrible sore throat, but bad enough to just cripple me at work. Almost out of it. Got to get to sleep early tonight. On a side note, my Shure SRH840 sound really amazing and I love both of my headphones…

Japanese Villiage

Japanese Villiage for L’s bday today. Kinf of fun, not super impressed with the food, but definitely a lively atmosphere. Also, am super sick and feeling completely drained. I’m slowly succumbing to my cold unfortunately. Also, I dropped weights today, from seventy five to sevnty lb dumbbells for the lower back and lats circuit day….

Old Spaghetti Factory

French onion soup at the Old Spaghetti Factory downtown. A very delicious soup with copious amounts of salt and cheese. Super yummy and terrible for my diet. Even worse for my diet is the Hunter’s Chicken with the cheese/butter substitution for sauce on the spaghetti. So unreal good. So I was looking at the group…
