Let it Snow

Merry Christmas!
From the Sushiboy home to your home!
May your Holidays be white.
(but hopefully not too white, and definitely not blue)

National Geographic Article of the Month: November 2010

Like my dad did, I have a subscription to the National Geographic Magazine. Unlike my father, I usually don't get around to reading it cover to cover each month.

I really like the NG and I find most every piece that appears in it interesting. I just don't feel like I have the free time to justify reading it in full. I usually end up reading only one or two articles, and just skimming the rest of the magazine.

Since a blog is all about sharing; I am going to share the article from each issue (if I get around to it) that I thought was interesting enough to merit a closer read.

Soooo.... Here goes.

November 2010: Japan's Ocean Wilderness

What it's about: Awesome Japanese Marine Wildlife.

Length Very Short.

Style of Text: Succinct overview of the photography project with poetic undercurrents (undercurrents haha).

Photographs: Absolutely amazing.

What I liked: Beautiful Photography. Probably one of my favorite subject matters. Did I mention the photos?

What I did not like: A little too short.

You can check the entire article and photos by following the link to the National Geographic Website.

Go here and read this. It may seem a bit harsh at first, but keep reading. I think in the end he made some good points. What do you think?

I love the McRib. I bought one last night, it tasted great. It also made me a little sick. Apparently mystery meat shouldn't be ingested when one is stressed out. (I've got a whole bunch of deadlines and stuff this week)

The experience didn't completely ruin McRibs for me... but I don't know that I'll try another one for at least another week or two....

Just For Zed.

I never did get around to posting a link to Tank's 18 month pictures. So in honor of the illustrious Zed's return, I thought I would post them now.

Enjoy the Cuteness. Welcome back Zed. You were missed.

The only thing more costly than education... ignorance.

Or so they say. So as I sit here tonight, tired, apathetic and wanting to do anything other than studying for yet-another-stupid-test (YaST for you SUSE Linux Nerds) I have quotes like that running through my head. I'm trying desperately to convince myself that I want to work on this test.

But really I just feel like this

I'm starting to get senior-itis which isn't good. Cause I still have darn near to a year left to go. :P

Dead Blog

If you want to kill your blog, annihilate it. May I recommend going back to school.

Don't get me wrong. I'm glad I went back to school. Just between that and everything else, it doesn't leave much time for blogging.

Well its been an interesting few months... I'd just thought I review my resolutions for the year.

1. Eating Healthier.
  • Eating Breakfast(Check, Usually this is two or three slices of whole grain toast with butter)
  • Bring a lunch (I'm doing very well here as well. Of course losing my job and being on a tighter budget helped this one along)
  • Cut back on soda (I haven't done this one very well at all, I'm up to 3 or 4 cokes a day)

Two of three in this category. Not bad... not great.

2. Exercising More
  • Walk a lot (I walk less now than I used to)
  • Exercise More (my new job is about a 100 yards from a gym, I just got a membership now I just need to go)

I'm not sure how to count this. I walk less because I don't ride the bus, I don't ride the bus because it wouldn't work out with my new job. So its a failure but there isn't much I can do about it. As for the gym membership, I just need to go (got the membership yesterday). Zero for two. For now.

3. Get Enough Sleep
  • overall I'm doing ok
  • but finals week I only got 29 hours over a 7 day period, 56 hours would be ideal (8*7)

I still could do better on this, though I am doing better than I was.

4. Earn Straight A's
  • So far so good

It was a close one this time. The layoff really affected my motivation early in the semester. Although I earned A's, it was just barely. Toward the end of the semester I really got my mojo back. My friend was named valedictorian (Congrats Matt) and that really reminded me of my goal. I feel pretty motivated going into the summer semester. I should graduate next April. (Under one year left)

5. Look Presentable
  • I feel like I'm doing pretty well on this

Job hunting and a new job have really helped me adopt a new habit here.

Well, the resolutions are doing pretty well on the whole, but there is still work to be done.

In other news. The new job is nice. I bought a new-to-me car (the subject of another post) and a new attachment to my grill (a side fire box, brisket anyone?).

So how is life for you?

It wasn't bad. Thank goodness the shortest month is in the winter. Wouldn't you feel shortchanged if the shortest month was in the summer? (Like it is in the Southern Hemisphere?) Yup, all the seasons have the same amount of days, but like many adults my time seems to pass in months (and if I am feeling poor, in paychecks).

February wasn't bad, March looks to be even better.

January Stunk

January was a pretty terrible month all things considered.

February is already looking up.
