As the time quickly approaches to come up with New Year’s resolutions for 2012, I felt the need to stop and make a recount of what happened with my resolutions for 2011. It really takes some thought to realize how many things remain the same during the course of a... Continue reading

Now that we have officially began the second half of the year and that so many changes seem to be happening around me, I felt like stopping and sharing the deep intranquility, sadness, excitement (...bipolarism), and nostalgia I've been feeling lately. I can freely admit that I have been an... Continue reading

Here I am, after long weeks of much to do, scarce hours of rest and a specially tiring weekend. It's Monday, normally a stressing day at the office with a lot to do. It was not the exception today, but among all the things I have to do, I took... Continue reading

Given that my high school reunion was so average and even boring to any outside reader, here are a few absurd yet kinda' fun scenarios that would have made it a bit more exciting. Pick your favorite! A. The Action Sequence We were in the middle of our reunion discussing... Continue reading

And now, breaking completely with this blog's theme, I have to tell you how it went! Weirdly, the blog entry on my high school reunion received more visits than the rest of my long and boring posts actually related to my blog's main topic: New Year's (and general) resolutions. Maybe... Continue reading

Continuing with the theme of this blog, an event 14 years in the making and very soon to happen, awakes questions not only of how much people change and improve (or not) during a given year, but during the course of many. After not so many attempts but a good... Continue reading

No, you're not mistaken. This is in fact the title of a recent Hollywood hit starring Julia Roberts. And, also, as a matter of fact, I'm specifically writing about it. Before jumping into this topic, and in order to give a brief update to my last post, I did resume... Continue reading

So much has happened since my last post, and at the same time it feels like everything is the same. I was hesitant to add to this blog for too long now. For some reason, it feels that you're bound to set a good example if you're being published or... Continue reading

For some, today, April 4, 2011, is a solemn day of remembrance. For others, a good day to share jokes or anecdotes. Some didn't even remember until later in the day and for some national news services it has been completely ignored. Whichever the case, for most of us it... Continue reading

As promised, I'm back, and with some tips (or at least one main one) that may be a little more useful than my usual rambling. I'm writing about the size of food containers, recipients and eating wares. If that's not what you imagined when you read the headline, well... sorry!... Continue reading

Well, here I am again. This post was planned to be my entry for the beginning of March. Man, time goes by so quickly it's not even funny. And with all due honesty, it could have taken even longer to post except that this was a very crappy evening. I... Continue reading

I officially finished my first piano lessons book! (I'm so excited, and I just can't hide it.) I began my lessons using a book from the Hal Leonard piano lessons series. The series consists of 5 basic lessons books. One of five. Yay! I have been promoted to book 2.... Continue reading

Before you keep reading be aware that, as my title says, I'm having a bad day. I don't feel like sharing today. I have had no progress in any of my unlisted resolutions. I don't feel inspiring at all. But suddenly, I realize my blog doesn't have to be a... Continue reading

No. I'm not taking Japanese classes wearing an ugly uniform from an old jail. As I reviewed previous posts, I noticed the line where I say I love music but play no instruments. The sad part of this line is that I haven't not tried. One of last year's resolutions... Continue reading

Just like many of you, I've been really busy doing a bunch of things with no true relevance and spending my time in stuff I can't really account for. January went by and I couldn't come up with a definite list of resolutions for 2011. The weird thing is, I... Continue reading

It is a known fact, or at least a common thought, that things that are worthy are painful and require tough sacrifice. Most people think that in order to get to an ideal weight you have to starve; to have a good shape you have to submit your body to... Continue reading

In a recent Men's Health issue, I read a list of things that a regular, average fit man should be able to accomplish in a certain time or with a certain performance level. This list included how many bench presses you should be able to lift, how strong your grip... Continue reading

I've received a few comments on previous posts. Obviously not here so don't bother scrolling down. People who know me have said that what I say here is very "ME." I'm not sure if that's good or bad, but it made me think that the 1 or 2 readers out... Continue reading

No reference to disco or the Bee-Gees intended. As simple as it may seem, I guess no resolutions, listed or not listed can be accomplished without staying alive through this 2011. I've been thinking a lot about death lately. Sorry if even the word "death" sets a dark or gloomy... Continue reading

6:00 a.m. - I wake up very well-rested, refreshed and ready to begin my day. I drink my first glass of water to replenish my cells, hydrate my body and jumpstart my metabolism. Sweatshirt, running shoes and shorts on. My dog Oliver and I jump out the door and begin... Continue reading

As I lay down watching reruns of Friends and a funny episode of Two and a Half Men featuring Enrique Iglesias, I think of the small changes that other small changes bring when trying to fulfill resolutions. Even though I'd still like to come up with a set list of... Continue reading

I know... it may be a little too typical and even cliche' to make the resolution of losing weight. Still, I think I'll include it in my list. Probably not so much lose weight since I'm actually not overweight... maybe something more like lose fat and get somewhat toned. To... Continue reading

January 3, 2011. Monday. Day 1 to begin putting in practice our New Year's resolutions. I don't know about you, but this holiday season came and went faster than I could say "Happy Thanksgiving". Even though I'm not a walking piece of cheer, I wouldn't call myself a "grinch" either...... Continue reading

In December I bought a Toyota Prius. I knew I had to buy a car that got at least 34 miles per gallon because that's what the car I had at the time, a Mini-Cooper, got. Thirty-four miles per gallon is already pretty exceptional, so to get anything better than... Continue reading
