Last week I worked...a lot...and ran a half-marathon on Saturday on basically no sleep and shit nutrition for the preceding week. Which has prompted me to start doing more things like oatmeal with various seeds and protein as a lunch, pinole with various salsas for dinner, and less snacking throughout the day. One thing that has not changed is my coffee consumption, but that's okay, it's still under 16 fl oz/day.

Sometimes it feels like I don't rest enough, but then others it feels like I'm not doing enough. It's a tough thing, this whole life-balance nonsense. Especially when you've gone on a couple of dates with somebody who seems interesting, and you wouldn't mind seeing again, but also lives 30 miles away. I get more excited about going on a long run or going rock climbing than I do about going on a date these days. I'm not quite sure what to make of that yet, but here we are. There's not much of a feeling of anxiety (in a good way, that feeling in your stomach), or for lack of a more appropriate word, fear, when I meet somebody and go on dates with them. Maybe it's a confidence thing, maybe it's a lack of interest thing, maybe it's an I haven't met the right person yet thing. But I do get that feeling with outdoor adventures, and kind of chase it. There are few things better in the world than placing yourself in a struggle against yourself and against the environment (balance safety, yo, don't be reckless)...that's a hard feeling to find...

Anyways, I want to build a home coffee bar out of wood.
