My heart remains tied to the sea, wherever I live. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.
  • Not my best.

    I attempted a run today with a sore back and aching legs. This was after getting up at 4a to do my morning driving till 9a. Not a lot of coffee, but enough to get moving. I had to use the bathroom a lot, though, which surprised me, but I didn’t think about it.

    I got home, had a little more coffee and set off on a run. I made it about a mile before my back just stopped playing nice, so I walked the rest of the way home, showered, napped, and went back to work. 40 mins of walking/running/sweating was good for me.

    Just before I went out to my bus I hit the loo, like I always do, because you just never know how traffic will be.

    I have never urinated something akin to a yellow/brown before. Needless to say, I freaked, and chugged a lot of water during my shift. Of course I googled what it could be - NEVER EVER DO THAT. Kidney failure was among a long list of what might be the issue.

    Turns out I was just dehydrated. A lot.

    As for my back, it is beyond unhappy now. I will need to forgo any further exercise this week in order to remain upright. Literally. I may also need to find some pain killers/muscle relaxants. Possibly just some herbal tea that will help, and possibly a long soak in the bath.

    I have abused my body too much this week and I’ve got a distinct feeling this is what it will be like the older I get, if I don’t take better care of how I exercise, feed, and hydrate myself.

    Ugh.

  • "This anti-vaxx movement has got a lot of things that I love: Star power, science denial, and hipster appeal, cause Penny-farthings and handlebar moustaches are cool, but nothing is more vintage than dying of Rubella."

  • Observation

    My dash on here consists of landscapes, beards, a little too much porn, a hyper-contextualization of what America is at any given moment, GLBT pride/news, and pets.

    Sometimes I come here and leave feeling saddened and frustrated, internally and externally. Sometimes, I leave feeling hopeful and optimistic.

    What’s weird, when I think about it, is that I’ve chosen the blogs I follow on here. I’ve chosen to create this seemingly bipolar experience that can leave me hating my life, my body, my geographic location, or the complete and total opposite.

    Oh, and I still hate those dumb sponsored posts…

    Just an observation.
