Forecast for the Future

"Every individual without exception bears a potential writer within himself. The reason is that everyone has trouble accepting the fact that he will disappear unheard of and unnoticed in an indifferent universe, and everyone wants to make himself into a universe of words before it's too late. 

Once the writer in every individual comes to life (and that time is not that far off), we are in for an age of universal deafness and lack of understanding."

- Milan Kundera, The Book of Laughter and Forgetting

An Overview of a Month of "Restoration"

As I reach the end of a month of supposed "restoration", I can say that right now I am feeling pretty good. I have come out of this month feeling like I did a nice job taking a look again at various aspects of my life and ways to strengthen and improve the choices I make. I am glad that I quit smoking this year, but the rest of my health needs to come too, and over the course of this month I re-established an exercise routine (including not only biking but also joining a basketball league), re-evaluated my eating habits, and reconfiguring my spending decisions--all to not just strong but manageable degrees of success.

I also tried once again to work on my sleep schedule but that one is a work in progress that will take some time to fix. I am beginning to speculate though that regular, semi-heavy exercise will help make this happen. I know that eventually something will have to give, but I am generally impressed with the resolve to live crazyily that has allowed me to continue surviving (thriving? dunno) without semi-human sleep patterns.

Everything that happened to me and which I did in the past month is all a part of the larger plan to turn Ben Scheim into a more sensible and productive human being, and I have confidence that I am both moving in the right direction and strong enough to see it all through.

"I have confidence that I am both moving in the right direction and strong enough to see it all through." I approve of this statement...and though I wish I could come up with something witty/clever like my public demands, this is all I have to say for now.
