I’ve started running again. I’ve gone running most days this week.
You’re supposed to explicitly write down your exercise goals and reward yourself when you reach them, so: three months from last Sunday, if I’m still running, I’m going to get myself a running outfit. Not because I think I really need high-performance hyperclothing in order to run more effectively. But because I’ve always thought that sweatsuits look like ass. Sheer vanity, in other words.
I need new shoes, too.
I articulated to my mom last night one of the reasons I like to read several books at a time. If you’re in the middle of four different books, you will discover synchronicities between them. It doesn’t matter what books they are; one could be a history of pre-Christian mystery religions and another could be a sci-fi pulp novel. You will find surprising concidences and confluences and conflicts. Multiple input streams stimulate the human brain. The end result is that you think harder about what you’re reading, you have ideas you wouldn’t otherwise have had, and you remember the material better. If you’re only reading one book, I highly recommend investing in bookmarks and picking up a second and a third and maybe more.
I was shocked to discover it was Friday this morning. This week has gone by fast.
I’m thinking bout going to Ascension tonight. I’m not going to make my final decision until I get home from work.
