Looking for a bit of quiet?

Taken of an Acela train in Penn Station. Aren't we all looking for a quiet car? Like last night, on the subway, I was between two guys w/ their music so loud I could hear it as clearly as they could.

Last night's commute had another key problem: I missed my train out of work. My options were to wait over an hour in the cold late night, or call someone who could give me the number of someone who could give me the number of a co-worker that lives only lives 2 minutes away from work. Of course, I'll get made fun of even more relentlessly than normal, but I think it will be worth it in terms of the extra sleep and the ability to play Wii Fit.

Now off to Erin's graduation!


I love being a turtle!

I said something unusual today in TKD class. I said that I love freestyle. Freestyle sparring is high-speed and unscripted, and generally those things are ones I would normally have trouble with and get easily frustrated. Previously I loved the art, and now I love its pieces. I used to, not quite see it as a thing to tolerate, but close. Now it is something I love just as much as I love basics or formss anything else about the Art. I like noticing this dynamically changing love, just like any other.
