  • The important thing we forget in the rush to achieve

    I should remember the following gems in the article I found in the following tweet. But if I could offer one piece of advice to incoming freshman, it would be to learn to take care of themselves—because they are about to be surrounded by people who often have the misconception that racking up achievements and […]


  • 1000 days of Elevate

    Today is my 1000 th day playing Elevate.            I broke the streak once in June 2016, not because I slacked but because I was stuck on the dated iPhone 4 running on dated iOS 7 on which the Elevate app was slow and crashed repeatedly.

After reading this post, I also deleted Tweetbot […]


  • Yet another leg day 🏋️

    I both love and hate the leg day workouts. I love because the gains of one hour of work last for the next 48 hours. No other exercise gets you that much in return. I hate because it is incredibly hard (assuming you are not mucking around and trying to push yourself) to do swings […]
