The Secrets You Tell Your Teddybear.

Check your totem. January 13, 2011

A reference from the Christopher Nolan movie Inception that suggests that a person should examine their totem (small personal object) in order to determine whether they are in reality or in delusional dreamland.

Intended to be used sarcastically.

D-Bag: “I swear every b**** in that club wanted my D.”

Smugster: Go Check your Totem.

I found this mildly hilarious. Thank you, Urban Dictionary for that source of enjoyment. I must re-watch Inception soon.

I had one of those nights that you just can’t even think about sleep last night. All I wanted to do was get up and go on a long run until my legs fell off. This could be called cabin fever to some extent. I never stepped outside at all yesterday, I decided to knock out some homework instead. I heard my alarm go off that tells me to wake up for school when the streets aren’t icy before I feel asleep. I woke up much earlier than usual too. So I’m sort of running on a nap.

Immediately after waking up I decided to supplement my existing work out routines with something from the Nike Training iPhone app. Loved it (enough though I lack enough balance to do a couple drills). I don’t think I’ve sweat that much in a long time. It felt good.

Then an apple. What what? It’s been too long that I haven’t eaten one of these delectable things. My taste buds sort of went into shock. Apples=love. Too bad my teeth have gotten too sensitive to cold to eat them too often.

Sxephil break.

I try to keep up with the world and what’s happening. I try not to be just another one of those oblivious teens that is just liven life and doesn’t care about what else is going on. I have the second part down, I care, I’m curious. Even with constantly checking the news and things, I realize that I’m still not completely up to date. Politics, weather, and criminals aren’t life. There are so many things that are always going on that we will never be aware of until they hit the mainstream media. Now that were things get a little hazy. The media shouldn’t rule the information of the world. But the laziness of people has let it do just that.

Snack break.

Today is Lohri, a Hindu/Indian festival. If you asked me now, I couldn’t tell you what it was about. This is a sad statement. I know. It’s even more sad because it is more specific to northern India and the state where my family once lived. I’m thinking that there is a ceremony that involves a bonfire and celebrating winter and lots of food. I shall ask my grandparents in a few minutes. I don’t want to go to the family gathering tonight without some sort of background.

I hear “Fly like a G6” playing somewhere. Unmistakable bass.

The Super Bowl will be coming soon. I really should start settling down on a team. Knowing me, it will be game specific. It almost always is. I wish I LOVED a team, but I don’t. I was fairly impartial during the Auburn-Oregon game this year. I just like Cam Newton and like it when whatever team my cousin is supporting loses. Out of the colleges that I could go to, only one of them has a well recognized team. That college is also my fall-back, go figure. I guess I may just have to get used to losing.

I think its time for some core work, I don’t know what’s gotten into me today. I just want to be tired when I go to sleep tonight.


I’m not an Apple groupie. January 10, 2011

But I own an iPhone. I’m enjoying what it can do so far. I primarily use wifi for internet. I didn’t get AT&T’s $25 for 2 gigs of data deal, I went for the cheapest one whatever it was ($15 for 200MB?). Maybe later, but for now I’m just playing with it when I’m bored. The things I like about this phone are things that most all of the phones in it’s class can do.

Lots of people complain about the problems created by having the steel band as the antenna. I’m sure that you’ve seen the “end call” stickers that are available. They point at the bottom left corner where if covered the iPhone looses signal. I haven’t have too much of a problem with it. From what I can see, you actually sort of have to squeeze the phone for a noticeable change. My phone is now in an Otterbox. As much as I loved it bare, I am a clumsy person and can’t even think about how I would feel if I damaged this device. Its worth like what? $800? (I have a 32g.)

I play games while I’m texting. (The texting can get annoying- I love the thread layout, I just hate the lack of information about the messages received, you know like a time stamp? sigh.)  I keep up with the news and follow some blogs. I use yoga apps and track workouts. I have become addicted to Doodle Jump, even though I lack skill when it comes to this game. The high scores are filled by my sister and cousin. Skype now has added video chat abilities, and it was use 3G. Facetime hasn’t even come that far yet. The white version isn’t even available yet.

Apple is forever holding out on us.  I guess when you are so over-hyped you can do things like that.
