Hopefully the video works. -edit- To add to my frustration, I forgot to rotate the video. I'm too tired to change it. Enjoy regardless.

  • Today, I weigh 281.6 pounds. Pretty much same weight as yesterday
  • Lunch and Dinner (3:30pm)
    • 12" meatball sandwich w/provolone cheese on wheat bread - 1000 calories gained?
Exercise - Tuesday - Racquetball
  • Three good games of racquetball for about an hour - 500 calories lost
  • 10-15 min of elliptical - 200 calories lost
  • "Powerless" is actually the title of one of the songs we have for the album. It's a song written to reflect my absolute inability to talk to those I'm attracted to. Fitting for today=)
  • My article was published in today's edition of the Daily Trojan. It's not meant to be a provocative piece, just a reflective one. Check it out here.

My camera is unable to capture my first entry, so you'll have to wait for video until that's fixed.

Nevertheless, here's the vital stats:

More than a New Year's Resolution

College is arguably the best time of one's life (aside for those who don't go or those who just flat disagree). Not to say I haven't had a formative experience, but false hopes and disappointments have tainted a large portion of the past 4 years.

That's about to change. Over the course of the next few months (graduation is May 11, 2007), I am going to actively pursue several goals which I would have previously thought unachievable. I'll be keeping you posted along the way.

The three main topics you'll be hearing about are:

- my pursuit of losing weight and ultimately feeling good
- my and my best friend's work on our CD
- my spring break road trip from l.a. to seattle and everywhere in between

So, without further ado, here we go.
