Have Internet, Will Travel Okay,

Have Internet, Will Travel
Okay, I have my little home Internet thing taken care of. They're coming to look at it on Thursday. When? Anywhere from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Oh, I just totally hate that!! What kind of a window is that?
"Ryan, we'd like to have you at work at 9 a.m."
"Well, okay, but keep in mind that I have a four hour window there. I could come in at 9 a.m., but I may not make it until 1 p.m."
So, here I sit without home Internet access until Thursday. I've been addicted to the Internet for the last five years. I don't think I can make it. I look at my computer, sitting forlornly, detached from the outside world, and I can't even manage the enthusiasm to move the mouse. The Internet opens your computer to so much information, it just totally spoils you. Without it, your computer just become a glorified calculator. Waaaaaaaahhhhh!

Maintaining the Urge to Run
I like exercising. During the course of a given week, I'll usually do four hours of hapkido and I'll run between four and eight miles. Due to this year's mild winter, I was able to run throughout the year, and I'm pretty proud of that. Still, I find that keeping the enthusiasm to run every other day is not easy. There's just so many things I'd rather do, like absolutely nothing. Prior to a run, I'll lounge on my bed or couch, and I'll consider taking a nap over running. It usually takes me an hour to find the hidden well of ambition to hit the road. The thing is, the feeling of completing a run or three miles or more is just awesome, and I always feel monumentally great about myself for hours afterward. So, why do I have such trouble doing something that makes me feel so good? Answers, people. I need answers.
