current addiction: tennis.

May 20, 2009 at 2:30 PM (Uncategorized) ()

background: purchased a new tennis racquet at sports basement the other day and have been having a great time breaking it in. growing up playing sports since the moment i could walk has definitely helped me live a pretty healthy lifestyle. and it’s all just so ridiculously fun. volleyball in high school. yoga & running in college. but after i graduated from college and started working full time, it’s definitely been a struggle balancing it all. picking up tennis again is definitely a step in the right direction though. it’ll be nice to regain some of the energy i’ve lost over the past two years. i’m super excited to get back in shape. especially since summer is rapidly approaching.

cravings: the endorphins that rush through my brain when working out. the great feeling of living a healthy lifestyle.

repercussions: tennis elbow.

treatment: regualar tennis matches at my favorite courts in russian hill, overlooking my beautiful city.

current addiction: live music.

background: why am i not musically inclined? i mean, sure – i played the violin for 6-7 years and had a short stint with the piano. but boy – i can’t sing. just cannot carry a note. and the hours and hours poured into violin lessons and shows and rehearsals are kinda moot now since i don’t remember much. so what do i do now? live vicariously through talented vocalists & musicians. attend live shows and music festivals and revel in their ability to make people feel however they want them to with a few notes and lyrics. blue october’s show back in march at the fillmore was daym good. loquat’s set at cafe dunord last night was also quite fun.

cravings: funky instrumentals & meaningful lyrics.

repercussions: a music budget that continues to add up. and add up.

treatment: kings of leon concert next week. summer music festivals.

current addiction: indulgence.

background: i am ridiculously addicted to tasting food and beverages. even when my stomach is stuffed silly, i still somehow find that millimeter of space to sample something else. the magical way in which chefs and bartenders can imagine up these crazy delicious concoctions amazes me. how one can just instinctively know what flavors go well with others and the exact process in which to prepare it all is insane. they dare to experiment and have their creations judged by the world. i love it.  i am just pretty much obsessed with checking out restaurants and bars. and living in a city where new ones pop up every week, it’s a nonstop task.

cravings: delicious morsels of food & heavenly sips from cocktails.

repercussions: a depressed bank account. the need to lose 20 lbs.

treatment: cocktail party at the ferry building tonight.
