Late Night Laughter

I can't believe it's already December!  Now everyone is decorating their houses with colorful lights and giant Santa Claus statues.  I remembered writing in a previous entry that I couldn't wait until December because it'll be eventful, but now that it's here I feel so pressured by time to fit everything in!  No worries, where there's a will, there's a way.


There's nothing better than having post midnight breakfast of steak, eggs sunnyside up, hashbrowns, a slice of cantaloupe, coffee and sourdough toast after a fun night with friends.



I can certainly thank grad school for giving me the ability to adjust to different time schedules.  Grading at 2 AM, anyone? :)


But I do believe that having great company with you makes late nights worthwhile.  Even when I'm exhausted after a long day and my friends want to go out to eat, shop, or just talk, I will not hesitate to take a shower and head out to meet them.  Otherwise, things might pile up and I'll have to push meeting them for another few weeks or so.  I'm sure many of you can picture times when you just have random adventures or unexpected events that turned out to be pretty fun.  We've all had those times when we'd go out to just buy some milk, and then end up catching up and having coffee with an old friend who we bumped into at the grocery store.


When I had done public relations work, one of the things my supervisor told me was to just relax and have fun during the events.  The hard work usually comes into the planning phase, but once it's events day, she told me to just go with the flow and to not stress over minute details.  Her advice was correct because when I had fun with the donors and volunteers, things all went smoothly.


It's in our nature to want things to move perfectly, and there's nothing wrong with that.  That trait helps us move forward so that we can always reach higher.  However, we shouldn't forget to just step back and improvise when changes happen to the status quo.  Embracing rather than fighting the unexpected can allow us to adapt to everchanging situations.  It takes us out of our comfort zone and may open our eyes to new things that we never would've paid attention to.


Around two months ago, I wanted to go try out Famous Roio's Pizza .  Those of you who remember, their pizza was featured in the 1991 movie, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II.  It was called Roy's Pizza there.  I remembered watching it as a boy and everyone in the opening scene was eating that nice gooey cheese pizza.  I wanted to actually experience it first hand to see what all of the hubbub was about.


I met up with my best friend for lunch and we got our pizzas.  For $2.50 the slices were huge and packed a lot of flavor.  There was a good amount of cheese and the sauce had a nice sweet element that complemented its thick crust.  I added crushed red peppers to my slice (I love heat and spicy food). The people were very friendly and provided great service.  I engulfed my pizza before I could even take a picture of it.


Here's a picture that I found on Yelp by member, "Pinky and Brain" that looked similar to the slices that I ate.



Doesn't it look good?  It was pretty tasty and I recommend it!  They have a lot of combinations for toppings as well as Sicilian slices so have fun customizing your slices.


Reading and studying have been pretty fruitful.  Here's the book that I've been covering:



It's pretty informative and really covers a lot of topics in exercise science and health.  I'll be working on this in the next few months.


Hopefully this winter won't be as brutal as two years ago.  Snow is fun as a kid, but when you actually have to shovel it or get through it during a long commute, it's not so pleasant. lol
