According to Darwin...

I should have been weeded out from this planet by now.

I heard people telling me all week how they ran for 3 miles that morning or worked up a sweat at the Gym or played squash every alternate day. I got inspired and went biking up a gentle slope and by the time I reached the "summit", not only was I panting like a dog, I was wishing I could get off and walk... and I did! I was just hoping that none of those super-athletes drove by seeing me straggle up a small slope they would have gracefully covered in the blink of an eye.


And what's up with those people I see running everyday for hours? I try running and within 30 seconds I feel I could go up in a massive explosion.

That brings me to another new Roswell Resolution (TM) I made.

RR1. I will bike more when I move to Roswell.

Scary

I find it a little more than distracting that the default pic actually looks like me right now.... especially the cowlick. Hmmm.. maybe not the bodyart.

Well.. all the more reason why I should stick to it. Heheheh...

Why is it...

that when you have a huge assignment hanging over your head (read: due tomorrow), you feel this utter need to get distracted and go rampaging all over the web for something that isn't due till the end of next month. I think it should be named the "O.bsessive D.eadline E.scapism S.yndrome" .

Moving to Allentown!!

Its final. I am moving to Roswell Park Cancer Center for my dissertation research and I am practically bouncing off walls. A few small road-bumps and creases need to be ironed out. Paperwork, Qualifiers, logistics etc. But aside from that, Buffalo, here I come!!

One of the earliest road-blocks is of course finding a 1BR apartment near Roswell. I am being told Allentown and Elmwood strip would be the ideal places to move into. Walking distance from Roswell and a relatively safe and happy neighbourhood.

Anyone have any suggestions/contacts that they can share with me? I am looking for a quiet place for about $400 - $550 per month (preferably with heat and water).
