Take the stairs once in a while...

I rediscovered (again) working out last night. Gotta try to set goals for myself as far as number of days per week that I'll do something I consider "working out." We'll see how long that lasts. We're doing a workout thing at work too, so that'll help motivate me.

For New Year's, I made a simple New Year's resolution to just be more mindful of what I eat. I think just keeping health in my brain will motivate me enough to have a salad instead of fries or skip the elevator and take the stairs once in a while.

Killin' me....

There aren't many things that I regret in my life. The problem is that I let the things that I regret fester inside me for a very long time.

Somedays the regrets that fester kill me inside, especially when I have a bad day. Today, which hasn't been the greatest day, at least one of them is killin' me.

Song currently playing: Eminem - Shake that

Weekend...

Let's see, Saturday was one of the best days of 2006 so far. First a quality win for basketball over Wiscy. Then a quick change and off to DJ the DM Charity Ball, which went very well. Those in charge seemed surprised and happy it was my 5th year doing Charity Ball.

Sunday I did nothing but sit on my ass and nap and eat.

Those three things combined made it a good weekend.

Give it a rest...

Crap about the Michigamua is back in the Daily and around on the web. This is rediculous!

I liken the enemies of the Michigamua to this:
There are people who protest the Cleveland Indians, the Washington Redskins, and the Atlanta Braves because of their Native-American mascots. Fine, this is like the people who protested the old Michigamua. If the Redskins, Braves, and Indians made these mascots more empowering, not as sterotypical, and less cartoon-like, then these teams have improved their image and themselves. Well, this is what the Michigamua has done, but they still have their protestors and enemies.

Michigamua is elitest, this is true, but it has worked hard to clean up its image. There are female memebers, there are members from diversity groups, and the group no longer uses Native-American artifacts in inappropriate ways. The group is now, truly, the leaders and best of U of M. With respect to my University of Michigan, I am not proud of this group's past, but I am proud of its current change and excited for its future.

Michigamua haters, give it a rest.

It's Great to be a Michigan Wolverine

Exhausted this morning. Last night I spent 2 hours screaming and jumping around rooting the Michigan basketball team on to a victory over the sparties. Even though this is only our 2nd win over MSU in the last three years, those two wins were my last two UM/MSU basketball games I attended. Good times. Now I gotta figure out how to get Maize Rage students tickets next year. (Am I too old for this?)
Maybe I am too old for this, but it's great to be a Michigan Wolverine.
