Seriously?! Seriously. (78/365)

So you know I’ve been going running, right?  I’m still waiting for it to become a lifestyle – like how it’s become for Brian – in the hopes that would make it easier for me to do it on a regular basis (and without much prodding).  I never really thought I would have it in me to be the running type (just like more than a year and a half ago I never really thought of myself as the gym-going type… It’s almost funny how frequently wrong about things like these) and the first time I reached my first 3 kilometers, I wanted to faint.  These days, I run an average of 4 kilometers – almost 5 on a good day.  Hopefully, it doesn’t stop.  This is the cheapest form of exercise I can manage – and with the budget I work with, I need all the help I can get.

One thing I did realize is that running, for me, is a solitary activity.  It’s one of those very few things that benefit me most when done alone.  It really does clear my head – much like yoga (speaking of which, I really do miss doing yoga).  I’ve even figured out which songs light a fire beneath my feet:

  • You Can’t Stop the Beat, Hairspray
  • Valerie, Glee
  • Born this Way, Glee


I got around to finally downloading a good copy of Mamma Mia! and I’ve been watching it since I came back.  I’ve always loved this movie – I watched it twice or thrice in the theatre, I think.  It’s such a “girl friends” movie – comparative to how Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants was such as “sisters” movie.  Mamma Mia, however, does call to mind a couple of statements to mind whenever I watch it

  • “Like mother like daughter”
  • “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree” (and yes, when this popped in my head, I was thinking of the crazy gene)

Then there’s that awesome segment when Dancing Queen was performed and I couldn’t help thinking that I could totally see myself in that same number, dancing to the same song… and so many of the other performers would be gay.  Gay friends and the best kind.  Ever.

So there.

Blessed Be…
