Lately I've been doing a lot of new things and things I haven't in a long while!
For starters: STUDYING JAPANESE!
After much hemming and hawing, Simon and I have gotten around to drilling Japanese grammar.
I should really be embarrassed at the fact that I've all but lost the discipline to study by myself, but getting out Wednesday and tonight (Friday) and doing the damn thing, I'm amazed at both how fast the time flies and how much material we have gotten through.
I've also been doing sit-ups. At first only 50 a day, for a a few days, but then as it became a habit, I started doing them throughout the day, when I wake up, before bed, if I have a spare moment while my computer restarts or downloads something, etc. Now I've added 50 to 200 crunches on top of that initial number and I've been going strong for the past couple weeks. I know it wont get rid of my spare tire, but it is helping my posture and I swear I'm starting to see the first hints of definition. Washboard or bust!
Also, if we're being honest, the number of people who floss in any given area is much closer to World Cup scores than NBA finals. But I'm contributin'!. What was the genesis?!? Well, a couple weeks back, I had something stuck in my teeth. I searched for my floss, but it was nowhere to be found! Then I reorganized my room to compensate for my beautiful new computer and lo, my floss returned to me. Last year, I flossed all the time because I left it by the computer and used it while streaming the Daily Show. I'm happy to say both habits are back in full effect.
Lastly, I bought red wine yesterday. Me. Greg Beck. Okay, maybe nobody knows me well enough to find that strange, but I, on my own accord, bought a simple California red last night whilst shopping, had a glass before bed, and I am having a glass tonight as well. I dunno why the sudden change, but as long as I don't get a bunch of cats and start a knitting club, I think I'm still safe in my masculinity. Remember, I do sit-ups!
