It doesn't matter that I'm exhausted. I'm working out because I want what I want.

+Tim Stevens When he says he’s getting nervous in the warmup, I usually swear. Yesterday, I laughed for some reason.

Figuring out things to do on a bus commute. My total time is three hours per day. The bus usually rattles, so I'm almost always wearing headphones. Here's what I've come up with so far:

- Writing
- Meditating 
- Music discovery
- Watching movies
- Reading 
- Gaming
- Listening to audiobooks
- Learn a new language (ambitious, but troublesome b/c I don't want to vocalize on the bus). 

Ideas?

Outline your calendar items with a quick set of steps to prepare , goals to achieve for the calandar item, supporting resources you may need, people you may need to help.

Is thete a ferry route you may want to use as a quiter or deversion on ocasion instead of a bus?

  • I've gone skydiving twice and if I get the chance will get myself licensed to jump. 
  • Dad since 2010
  • I've lived on the east coast all my life until 2011

Bragging rights
I've got nothing to brag about.

Dairydell is a fantastic place for dogs. Everyone is super-friendly and their training is top notch. Dairydell took my two rambunctious labradors and helped them become closer to model dogs.
