1 month later...

Woah, check it out, we're in February! And that means Chinese New Year is just round the corner! Wow, time flies!

Well, I lie since time has been fast and slow for me recently. I just registered in my head that it's February and I realize it's already the 3rd of the month! Woah! I guess when you keep yourself busy time zooms by but if you always remind yourself to realize what day it is, it slows down. As I've said before, my Google Calendar now shows me the week number as well as the number of days into the year, which really puts things into perspective for me. At least the idea that it's only week #5 of 2010 lets me realize I'm almost 10% into the year even though February feels like it's still the beginning.

I came across this kick ass thing called Aquanotes and my eyes almost exploded as I saw the video demonstrating how all my whining about great ideas being lost in the shower can now be a thing of the past. I went and ordered a 5-pack so now's the painful part of waiting with excitement! Of course, provided this company doesn't screw me over somehow in the mail. For some reason, there was no extra shipping charges for Hong Kong...hmm?

Speaking of note taking, I've been trying my hardest to have a daily comedy writing habit and I am here to conclude that that has totally failed. Every day, at 2pm, I get a reminder telling me I should stop and write some comedy, but I've come to realize, instead of forcing myself to write comedy, it reminds me to keep my mind open for any humorous ideas that my drop by. Sometimes, I get a bunch of ideas just before I'm about to cross the road and it's just a matter of jotting them down before I forget them. However, from reading the lovely Brain Book I'm still not finished with, I've realized that sometimes when you tell yourself to remember something, you end up......remembering it :P I no longer find myself standing in the middle of the road tapping words into my PDA for fear I'd forget that brilliant idea and risk my life in the process.

I have, however, made progress with my personal fitness. Well, my right knee is getting stronger and stronger, I'm able to climb 2 steps at a time when walking up so that's a very good thing in both saving time and making me feel like I'm getting back to where I was before the injury. Seriously, I hurt my knee in August 2009 and here we are in February 2010 and I'm still paying the price for that injury :\. On a brighter note, it's forced me to evaluate a lot of my other exercises to make sure I have extra good form with whatever I do. Any clicking of joints and I stop to evaluate what is going on. It's made me realize how my whole body seems...crooked. Ahah, I always knew my face was slanted/crooked but now when I really study myself in the mirror in the gym, every little detail is taken into consideration and well I've realized my left arm rotates a little bit more than my right arm, the distance between my left elbow and my kidney is closer than my right elbow and right kidney...hmm?

On another note, I'm going to go to Taiwan in April to go see Lamb of God with my bandmates. I don't think you got that, Lamb of God, me, there, same room! Seriously, this is the first time I'm ever flying anywhere to go see something and come back. Well we're going to be there for a few extra nights just to soak in Taiwan, but I have to say, I'm super excited because I just feel Lamb of God is a band that I must at least experience live before I die. Kind of like stand up comedy :P And see where that took me :) We even got VIP tickets which means we can go meet the band and yes, I know, I know, that's so lame and chances are the band won't ever know who I am nor remember me, but it's something I just have to do. Kind of like seeing a photo of the Mona Lisa and actually experiencing it. You just have to do it to know it.

Today's a crazy wednesday and as much as I don't have 5739537530530 meetings scheduled, I do have 5739425850 tasks to get completed today. The minor blog entry was one of them so I figured do what David Allen always said, go by your list and crank them one by one. No skipping because the next task is easier! It really does make a difference because if you do all the small easy tasks first, you're left with the same big task you wanted to avoid, but now with less energy :\ Then again, sometimes I still do the small tasks first because psychologically it makes me feel better to know I only have 3 big tasks than 58305385035 small tasks + 2 big tasks :P

Oh and one last thing I'd like to share, one big accomplishment for Jan 2010, on top of all the things I did, was that I finally completed and launched the new TakeOut Comedy website. I hope I can say the same when March comes around and I look back at all the great things I did in Feb 2010 :) So here we go!! :D

Prior to reading your entry, I still hadn't realize, we entered February - when did that happen? I guess, I've been too busy to even notice!

I like how you always come across nifty things, such as the Aquanotes. (I'm expecting a review when you receive them) :)

Have a super duper trip to Taiwan :D

oh i really liked the point about tackling things in the list one by one and no skipping. Just do them all.

i realized that's what's happening to me at work these days. every day i start off with a long list, i finish all the quick and easy and urgent stuff first, leaving the big and difficult and less urgent but very important stuff undone, and pushed over to join the queue for the next day, haha...
