running around

My posting frequency definitely jumps off a cliff when I’m back at home. This is probably because I’m busy trying to see everyone while I can (before I retreat to the mountains and hermit it up, as I like to put it). I’ve been reliving last summer by spending the bulk of my time back at Twirly Girls, otherwise known as my second home. :D

On that note, also finally, finally getting back into exercising regularly, which has lifted my spirits immensely. The months I got stolen from me due to my stupid spine and the other weeks that piled up during exams really took a toll on me. :[ I get pretty cranky and terrible to deal with when I (a) am really hungry, or (b) have to prioritize other things (e.g. getting good grades) in favor of exercising. ;_; I was pretty sad to see my muscles start to deteriorate, but luckily, they’re makin’ a comeback!

I also dragged my friend onto fitocracy with me the other day (yesterday). If you are at all a fan of RPGs, leveling up, or just games in general, you should check it out! :D (Add me if you want. Same username as this blog. :O Gimme props and I shall reciprocate so we can win all the things!) You get to complete quests/challenges and earn achievements and such. I love quests and gaming in general, so I’m working on it. >_> Although I’m also trying to ration my energy because I don’t want to be too exhausted for pole/silks/Twirly Tuff. Jump roping for a billion years after a silks class yesterday before the Twirly Tuff workout/pole lesson this morning was not a good idea. (Whatta mouthful of a sentence.) But what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger! :D

Here’s me doing a chinup┬áto get myself on the wall. :O

Twirly Girls is partnering with Platinum Poles at the San Jose Fitness Expo so we can show people that pole fitness is pretty effing awesome. Demo-ing all day and on stage from 12-12:30 p.m.! :D I’ll be helping out on Sunday unless I don’t make it back from LA on Saturday, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed. :X Come check it out!

P.S. Completely unrelated, but I may be getting a super-spiffy rice cooker soon (you know how much I love my rice :D or if you don’t, now you do). It can apparently cook regular rice, brown rice, mixed rice, porridge, steel-cut oats, quinoa, steam cakes–pretty darn magical in other words, so when I’m in West Virginia, assuming I ever have free time again, I’ll be able to share some new recipes for it! :D


“I’m giving you STDs.”

Definitely not something you hear every day. Especially not with a big smile.

But! It’s what my friend Dave told me yesterday.

Since I’m finally back from Asia, we made plans to hang out and shoot things. Golden Gate Park has hay bales set up, so if you bring your own targets/bows/arrows, you can shoot all day for free. For me, the only expense is actually getting to SF, and if it’s for archery and good company, it’s definitely not a problem. What I like about going to SF for archery while using BART is the fact that no one tries to mess with me. No obscene comments, no one randomly sitting down 3 feet next to me and masturbating while staring at me… it’s wonderful. (Probably because I have 21 arrows to stab into them if they try something on me, but I’ll take it. The same goes for knitting needles.)

I haven’t done archery regularly since I was guest TAing for Jen’s archery PE class back at Davis. (Those were good times. *-*) The last time I went was also with him (last August, if I recall correctly).

Anyway, before we took our stuff to the park, he told me that since I’d gotten into medical school and everything, he’d gotten me a present to congratulate me.

F: :O! That’s so nice of you! You didn’t have to!
D: It’s okay; I wanted to! When I saw them, I basically had to get them for you. They’re perfect.
F: :O
D: I’m giving you STDs!!! :D!

He really wasn’t kidding. I now has HSV2 (otherwise known as the gift that keeps on giving) and “the clap” (so named because “clapier” is the old French word for ‘brothel’). It definitely made my day.
