Went out yesterday for an early morning walk. I haven’t done this in a long time, so I’m expecting all kinds of body aches the following day, which is today. I hate to be right this time, but yes, I’m experiencing these all sorts of body ache today.
I went on a good 7.53km. brisk walk from home all the way to one of my favorite spots here in the city. Haven’t taken pictures though. Probably gonna be doing that next time.

Going on these jogs/walks sometimes give you realizations. Realizations like, “sometimes, to reach a destination/goal, you walk to it. Because if you run, you might get tired enough to think of quitting. Walking on the other hand reserves enough energy for you to get to where you’re going.” It’s sort of like the fable of the rabbit and the turtle.
Planning to make this a regular routine but with different routes like I used to. Time to go physical again!
Here’s a classy song from the late Amy Winehouse entitled “He Can Only Hold Her” to brighten up your last day of the weekend. Cheers! 😉
Okay, now to get rid of these body aches.
Woke up to a beautiful Sunday; no hang-over. :LOL: And to make things better, found this song from some other person’s blog:
Beautiful song from back in the 90’s. Can’t believe this was out there all those time and me not hearing it. Wouldn’t have appreciated it back then, anyway–I was so much inclined to heavy guitars and screeching vocals back in the days. It’s just recently when my taste in music has gotten richer and richer.
Anyway, beautiful song, beautiful day, cheers to the weekend! 😉
Okay, now to find lunch. . . .
It was a Saturday, but we still had to go to the office. Well, we just had to since urgent matters in the company dictate that we have to do so. To make things better, I had to cope up with having a slim 2-hour sleep the other night; so you could just imagine how my world floated while working on a mentally straining project.
Work was done for the day, and I thought of grabbing a bottle of beer or two at some bar near the office just so I could take the stress off of my mind for a while. And I want to stress out that this does help–you just have to have the right reason for doing so. If you have the right reason, you know your dosage, and you have a firm control over yourself, it would be healthy. This wasn’t the case last night though.
I swore never again would I lay my hand on any hard spirit . . I know myself too well to know those plans won’t last that long.
Fate had to step in last night and magically stir up circumstances and station along my path people that would bring the death of me. [continue…]
