New Year, New Goals

January 5, 2016


When I look at the list of things I wanted to accomplish in 2015, I see some high expectations and a very rosy idea of what lay ahead. A year later, I am feeling far more pragmatic and have a better understanding of the amount of free time I actually have. Last year, I wanted […]

We climbed a Mountain!

August 27, 2014


Yesterday, we climbed Mount Takao, which is located to the east of Tokyo. We had originally planned to climb Mt Fuji, but bad weather forced us to NOT take on that endeavour. Mount Takao is about 599 meters above sea level, while Fuji, the tallest mountain in Japan, is over 3,000. It’s quite a difference. […]

The battle for a more productive use of my free time

So there’s something going on with my shoulder, and I don’t know what […]

Lack of music, lack of motivation?

November 2, 2012


I can’t help but wonder if the two are connected. Or at least, connected for me. In the past two months I haven’t been listening to music as much as I normally do. It’s due to a lot of things, and I can’t put the blame on one part of my life/psyche or another. But […]

You don’t have to be 100% of anything

July 10, 2012


Here’s a blog I posted to FitFreedom, and I think it’s relevant enough to share over here, as well! I hope you enjoy it (if you read it):) You don’t have to be 100% of anything.
