ohhh the burn

I am sitting on my couch, wincing at the pounding beats of muscles' messages sent, informing me I have harmed them. Yes, nike+ has definitely got me going on the running front, and I am finally feeling the effects of pushing myself. Painful now, sweet calf muscle definition later. The dreams I have... I decided to join a beginner's run challenge, which means I signed myself up for 10 miles in one week. That week ends on Tuesday and I am currently 8.03 miles down, 1.97 to go! I think tomorrow needs to be a day off though, my dog has been staring at me curiously, watching me walk funny since I got home from my run. Other than that, it's packing time! Three more weeks and I am moving into a much bigger apartment! Good things ahead..whether waiting for them or running to them.. Will also have some new doodles posted soon, have found quite a few that have made me smile while cleaning this place out. I promise, soon!

I am officially a true nike+ participant! I'm training for a 15k roadrace in july and needed some serious motivation, and nike plus seems to be doing the trick. Want to challenge me or friend me? Bring it on! username: everytuesday
happy running!

ben jamin' folds

Sunday night I was able to see one of my favorite musicians play in Atlanta..Ben Folds. Thought I'd throw a few pictures from the concert up. I'm going to go ahead and rank that concert as one of the best concerts I have ever been to. Lots of conversations with the audience and audience participation..I found myself either smiling or laughing the entire time. Zach Williams was his opener..also amazing. I went straight to the itunes store afterwards and got myself a copy of his cd..definitely worth the purchase if you're into the singer/songwriter genre.

Nothing in the past or future

"Nothing in the past or future ever will feel like today" big thanks to Conor Oberst for putting this poetic line in my life. What a great slogan to live by..thinking of an old friend of mine today, who made this mean a lot to me :)

cold spaghetti

This past weekend, my cold spaghetti went from doodle to digital..the whole reason I made the doodle was, last week I was sitting snug with my pup watching tv, eating my delicious spaghetti when I realized, my pauses between bites caused the 'psgetti to get prematurely chilly. So I sat there, glued to whatever I was watching, still eating my cold spaghetti, consciously aware of it. So for all those cold spaghetti fans..some custom artwork, just for you :)

weekly doodles

The first image below has a bit of a story to it. I'm a huge fan of death cab for cutie, and an even bigger fan of Ben Gibbard's songwriting. Not too long ago, he put out an album, "One Fast Move or I'm Gone" with Jay Farrar, based on the life and writings of Jack Kerouac. After listening to the album, I decided to read "On The Road." Ben actually wrote a song separate from this album about Kerouac, called Couches in here to listen! my favorite npr performance in DC. So, with 70 pages left to read, a pen in hand last night, and the song stuck on repeat, this doodle came out of me. Hope you like the other doodles! 10 points if you can guess what I had for dinner last night! :)

Yesterday was my 24th birthday, and although in many people's eyes I must still seem so young, I have to admit, it's been the first time I've actually felt the weight of what our '20's' can be.

Quit rolling your eyes.

I partly blame the Olympics. Like many, I've been hypnotically glued to them since they began, which, I'm sure my body will be thanking me this week with the extra doses of sleep it'll be receiving. Seeing so many young, talented athletes endure the most pressure they ever have and come out on top..I'm in awe. They've accomplished so much already..and that's when my 20's time clock began ticking. Holy cow! I'm almost half way through! And although I'm confident I wasn't destined for the Olympics, my drive keeps pushing me in draw more, create more personal work on the side - all the things that make me happy..that make me want more out of this life. As many things as I'm trying to do, I constantly have this feeling of standing still. Or, maybe that's just what I fear the most. Whatever the case, this year my hopes are high. It's going to be a good one, I have a good feeling :)
