#948: Swim before work

There is a school of thought–I’m not sure I subscribe to it–that says exercising in the morning is a good practice. It sets a precedent for your day and inspires you to make better choices throughout it.

While I’m skeptical about all of that, I have often thought about how nice it would be to swim before work. Since it’s the only thing I’ve yet to discover that clears my head and calms me down, creating this effect in the morning, before work pressures have stressed me out or exhausted me, seems to make sense.

#919: Have an office

…with a door.

Maybe you don’t realize how big of a deal this is.

#888: Show rage at work

I’m an emotional person.

But up until now, the emotions I’ve actively displayed in the office have managed to stay in the range of crying to extreme frustration.

#838: Vanderbilt Market

As I was walking to and from this indoor market with food vendors and not enough seating, I passed by a bar with a “beer garden.” (Quotes are necessary when the only thing that distinguishes your beer garden from regular outdoor seating is the words on a sign.)

It was nice weather–exceedingly nice weather for early November–and the beer garden was ridiculously crowded, and absurdly loud. Give people in suits in Midtown a couple of beers and you’ve created an equation for VERY LOUD TALKING.

As I passed by, both times, I couldn’t help looking at all of these people as if they were in a different world. Read the rest of this entry »

#801: Be locked out of a hotel room

I never use the phrase, “What are the chances?!” because it doesn’t matter.  It makes no difference whether the chances are 1 in 60 or 1 in 6,000.  It will happen to me.

Like, for example, when I went swimming before getting ready for work and my room key fell into the pool. Read the rest of this entry »

#797: Eat tacoviche

I don’t like traveling alone.  I know I’m supposed to be relaxing and appreciating that I can do whatever I want whenever I want, and I don’t have to worry about the fights that come from a traveling partner being tired or hungry, and there are tons of people who would love to be in my position.

I know all of this, and still, on my pre-work-trip vacation to Puerto Rico, I want someone sitting next to me so I can laugh with them about the dogs hyper-actively playing in the waves–so I can celebrate with them after receiving an upgrade to a king-size bedroom–so I can gasp with them when I realize I forgot to pack any underwear.
