In questionably happier news, I have become somewhat addicted to the PS3 game Fallout 3. It's choose-your-adventure style where your dialogue/behavioral choices range from good to snarky to downright mean. I mostly just wander around doing odd jobs for people (e.g. recovering a radio tower, disarming an atomic bomb, etc.). However, I do not enjoy encountering super mutants, bloat flies, or feral ghouls, as they inevitably want to eat me and I have to shoot them and unfortunately I am not particularly good at that.
Today is also day 1 of the South Beach/Wii Fit diet. This is my 3rd go around for SBD; I always lose weight, but inevitably do something stupid like start grad school and stop working out and put the weight back on. The Wii Fit is pretty damn fun. I was able to do a tree pose in yoga for the first time in my life today, so that's exciting. I also currently enjoy hula hooping and strength exercises that do not require the use of my arms (alas, I am weak).
Next week, I start my lab rotation in the Epstein lab, which I am super stoked for. I am sad to be leaving the Chattlab though. Who knows? Maybe I'll be back.
