current addiction: running.

June 22, 2009 at 8:37 PM (Uncategorized) ()

background: running has always been a great outlet for me – i used to take evening runs during times when i was super healthy and in shape and whenever i was going through any emotional overloads. there’s something about the cool wind combined with the pumping of my arms and legs, music pumping on my headphones, that quickly relaxes me and helps clear my head. it’s a great way to release physical and emotional baggage. during high school, the school track & lake merced were my courses of choice and when i lived in berkeley, i frequented the clark kerr track and college avenue. unfortunately, once i graduated and started working, running was unfortunately pushed to the wayside. however, today was different – jennifer and i went to golden gate park for a boot camp session and not sure why, but the instructor never showed. so we went for a nice run in the park instead. it was great – the weather was beautiful, i had a great running partner and it was a nice first day on the road to getting back in shape.

cravings: the refreshing breeze, calm mind and quickened heart rate.

repercussions: none that are negative. none whatsoever.

treatment: get back into running on a regular schedule.

current addiction: gifting.

June 12, 2009 at 2:27 PM (Uncategorized) ()

background: i’ve always been the type of person that would much rather give gifts than recieve them. there’s just something about finding those little things that are so ridiculously fitting of a particular person and then seeing their face light up when you give it to him/her. it’s awesome. but once in a while, it’s nice to be surprised with a gift of your own. and that’s exactly what happened to me last night. in the form of a new laptop! whee! and last weekend, it was tickets to bfd and wec. 🙂

cravings: the desire to return the kindness.

repercussions: the longing to drop everything and simply play with my new toy.

treatment: hunt for the perfect return gift.

current addiction: netbooks/smartbooks.

June 9, 2009 at 2:55 PM (Uncategorized)

background: with one of my clients having a huge netbook/smartbook play, i’ve read hundreds of articles about the space within the last few months. there are the purdy fashion-labeled ones, but also the more durable and functional industry ones. i’m torn. there seems to be so much on the market right now, but they all offer different things. and i want one that has it all – super portable, low-power, aesthetically pleasing, runs MS Office…

cravings: an energy-efficient, super sexy net/smartbook that fits my lifestyle.

repercussions: headaches trying to figure out which netbook is most suitable for me.

treatment: just freakin choose one and buy it already.
