And I would walk 500 miles...

But I'm running 26.2 instead. Time for the breakdown.

1) Dropping down to 175 - It's going, but not well. I seem to have hit another plateau around 181. Granted, my diet and football season have been atrocious, but as it stands now I'd be shocked if I hit 175. However, I'm pretty happy with where I'm at, if I get to and maintain 180 I'd be pretty stoked. The flip side to that is that I need to focus on getting the crap out of my diet again. It will also be easier when I'm not scheduling runs of 10+ miles every Saturday.

2) Digitize and destroy - Ready for this? I think I've bought exactly TWO pieces of physical media this year, and both of those were video games. I have one of the first-run PS3s, so my disk space wouldn't allow it anyway. All in all, not too shabby.

3) TV time - Football's back. So there goes Sunday, though the Eagles have mostly 1pm games this season, meaning that I can actually do things after the game (though throwing on Redzone is always fun). I've been using the extra time to want to clean my house. While watching Redzone. Also, NBC has completely shit the bed with their comedy lineup. So that helps. I picked up a sidegig working a soundboard for a local bar trivia, which means my Mondays are gone, which means no more How I Met Your Mother on that instead I just watch it after Parks and Rec. It ain't much, but it lets me keep it going for another year.

4) Apply to Grad School - COMPLETED - Well, I've applied at long last. And now I wait. And wait. And wait. Am I in yet?



Anyway, I foresee the chance to turn this blog into something really positive once I am accepted, and once that happens, I'm going to be a lot more forthcoming about who I am, what I do, and more importantly, where I'm going, because I think it has the chance to become a valuable resource for others.

But until then, YOU have to wait. Sucks, doesn't it?
