Well, 2020 is here. Next decade in progress. Big expectations? I don’t like to set goals for new years. You should not have to wait until new years eve to set them. They should be a part of your normal life. If I do set a goal it is only one. This way it is actually achievable. For me anyway.…

As this year quickly moving to its end I cannot help but reflect on it. My mom passed away and it was a big one. It made me realize just how fragile life is and just how fast the time flies. Now that I am just three years away from turning fifty I have this awful fear of my own mortality…

The sun is shining and all is good again. I hate April (and Spring in general). As nature getting ready for a full bloom and everything is changing to green color and flowers are starting to open up your expectation is that your life will also change. Not a chance. Although there are small things that you can adjust to…

I haven’t written for a while because I was trying to finish up my graduate degree. Now that it’s over and I passed comprehensive exams (which I have to say I am proud of) the writing starts again. Writing is a curious thing as when you stop for a while it is harder to start again on a specific note or…

Wednesday the hump day. Not my favorite. Thursday is. The weekend is closer and Fridays are always easy. This week is the last week of freedom for me. My last semester in Graduate school starts next Thursday. I already cannot wait for it to be over. Have to get through comprehensive exams though. I am very nervous as I am…

November is almost gone, and with it the “official” Fall becomes Winter. It has been a bit chilly for Oregon in the last couple of weeks, but I love it. Waking up in the morning is not easy due to the comfort of down comforter (I suppose hence the name). But as the smell of freshly brewed coffee fills the…

The heat wave continues. I started running again using my lunch breaks. I still walk my dog 5 miles additional to running. Will it get me in shape? I wonder about Alaska and should I move back there. I experienced an out of Oregon weird happening not long time ago. All of the sudden on my walk I thought I…

It is Wednesday. The hump day. I hate the hump day as it is still far away from the weekend. I always lose my steam on that day and get a mid-week blues. I love Thursday. Thursday is close to Friday, and I seem to get my steam back. I don’t know why it happens, but it happens. In general,…

Holy mother of hotness! Today for the first time in my life I walked in 105F weather. Smothered in heat your body releases sweat even if you are not moving. Even the trees seem to break a sweat. The lungs feel heavy and constricted. The street sounds are muffled by the heat wave as if the cars all wrapped in cotton. The…

I walk 7.5 miles on average every day. That’s 52.5 miles a week. That’s over 200 miles a month. In my neighborhood, there are 4 different routes that my dog likes, so we stick to them. Each day we cover 3 different combinations. One is going through Orchard Park, one leading to a huge field where Opee can run freely…
