The cheapest and preferred method of seeing a city is by walking it. There’s no other way to soak in a city other than walking it. Besides, everyone else might be in a hurry, but that doesn’t mean you have to be. I am starting to notice a pattern when I’m on vacation walking a city. Everytime I walk more than 4 miles a day after day 3-4 my lower back starts to ache. My lower back starts to ache possibly from the camera and lens I’m lugging around everyday. My lower back starts to ache possibly from the uncomfortable shoes I’m wearing. Or my lower back starts to ache because of a weaker core. Whatever it is, my lower back aches and it takes a few days of resting before I’m able to hit it hard again. Either that or I could be getting old.


I lose

Before the trip I made a bet with a friend thinking since I would be on vacation I wouldn’t be able to work out. So the thought was that I was going to gain weight, the only question was how much. In my head I quickly calculated the rate of my metabolism with the rate of my eating and factoring the no exercise should yield a weight gain of over 3 pounds. Confidently I made the bet that if I wasn’t able to gain more than 3 pounds then I would lose. The day I got back to work I got on the scale to see how much damage I did. To my surprise I lost 1 pound from the before vacation weight. How did it happen? I don’t know. Did I eat less? Hardly.

Oh well, maybe next time I’ll bet the other way.

When life trips you and kicks you when your down the best thing to do is to get up dust yourself off and say, “Is that all you got?”

This weekend was Duffcon. I haven’t played games in such a long time that even the Warcraft 3 game I mastered, I was having problems remembering. Since I fully converted to a Mac, I no longer touch PC gaming. Games like Starcraft and Warcraft are like a snapshot of time and a reminder of the games I played in a time when things were much simpler than they are now. Would I trade all that to be in that time again? I would do it in a heartbeat. No more worries. No more complications. But best of all no more responsibilities. I had fun at Duffcon. But I do have to say, I don’t have the endurance of sitting and playing the same game for over 10 hours like I use to. I also don’t see my friends as much as I use to. So being there and playing games with them is something I do enjoy doing. Side note, I suck at drums on Rock Band.

Why am I so lazy?

Over the weekend the country celebrated Independence Day. Usually for the 4th I hang out with my friends and have a cookout. I still remember last year’s at a friend’s house. Food was good and everyone had a good time. But when it came time for the fireworks, none of my friends wanted to go. My only reason for going is taking pictures of the fireworks. Usually when my friends don’t want to go, I put it off. But last year I was willing to go alone. The only thing that stopped me is that I didn’t drive and my car was at home. This year was a little bit different. The party was in Galveston in the morning to the evening. I didn’t want to leave after church to drive down to Galveston only to come back in a few hours, so I opted not to go. So instead I went alone to the park and took pictures of the fireworks with the Houston skyline in the background. The pictures didn’t come out like I wanted them to. I will post some eventually. This is probably my last Independence Day so close to downtown.

Happy Bday America!
