USA TORONTO FIN

Well its been a few weeks since we have been back from Los Angeles and Toronto so I thought I would blog a bit before I forget everything; also I cant effing sleep. Los Angeles as a whole was amazing. I didn’t think I would enjoy it as much as I did. When I grew…

its been boring

BBQ with good family and friends ; it was perfect weather for that today; cool wind, bright warm early evening sun, and some tree shade to keep everything cool. Really good meats overall and company. This is the initially exciting park that had a bunch f exercise equipment for the public; alas it was mostly…

So I’ve had a pretty fun month at the gym. I am trying a new thing with the treadmill which seems to be somewhat like HIIT (high intensity interval training); I have split my typical 30 minute run into 5 minute intervals where I build up to a full out sprint at max speed on…

traveling with pain

Its been a long time since I have blogged; and I am mostly blogging out of spite.  Today we were supposed to fly out on Flair airlines to Toronto; everything seemed to be going right this morning; we packed and cleaned; I got up early at 6 am to workout right away; leave time from…

Its been ages

Yeah so here I am like months later after my last entry —like half a year ago? Were finally into the light of spring and its warming up considerably and my mood overall is just really good. Anyways, time to recap the last half yearish. Personal fitness- I’ve been doing a lot (about 2-3 times…

the whole summer happened

Its been months since I last blogged- what have I been up to? I was in the middle of my last entry and I left it as a draft since April. So the following will be that draft with updates. Why did I get delayed? I wrote my licensing exam in July and passed! I…

IRL Review: Sony MDR-SA5000 headphones

The Sony MDR-SA5000 headphone was their flagship headphone for a number of years, and fought for that title with several headphones that overlapped its release including the MDR-CD3000 (biocellulose diaphragms like the MDR-R10 legend), and the Qualia 010 (which honestly appears quite similar in design, but with some material changes, and tuning changes). It was…

April Updates

We went down to Calgary for the Easter long weekend to visit some grad school friends- it was a nice trip for the fam, as it had been awhile since the last vacay. Couple of good pieces from the trip- our Honda didn’t die on the road, which was a plus- I am fairly certain…

these are my confessions

Yup haven’t blogged in a month now, its been a hella long time. Been pretty busy around the clock in work and parenting but nothing crazy or out of the ordinary. Recent embarkment to the science center at Telus- watched a video on stars, particularly about the sun in this gnarly dome theater. Pretty neat….

going around town

Hitting up lower back right after chest day at the gym. Pretty solid chest day overall, felt solid throughout and didn’t have major wrist problems.  Feels good to do it up without any time restrictions like I have on weekdays. The deadlift was powered by a 4 shot java chip frapp. Probably 500000 calories. Back…
