Announcements and random crap!
I opened up a Hey Joob store! Why? Because I really wanted to own a Hey Joob shirt, I love my blog, and I love stroking my own ego.
I only have one product so far and it’s kind of stupid. Mostly, I just didn’t want an empty store so I made something up on the spot. I am going to spend the rest of my Sunday
wasting time on the interwebz coming up with better designs.
And just so I don’t come off as a total d-bag, it should be said that I am making these more for fun than profit. I mean, I won’t turn down your money (thanks!), but I don’t want to mark them up a lot and, really, I don’t expect people to buy them but me.
I’m cool like that.
OH EM GEE.
I want to make Hey Joob panties.
Other Random Crap
1) I want to hold a design contest but I don’t think I’d get any submissions and then I’d feel stupid. So I’m not. However, if anyone sends me a really killer design, I may send you a free shirt with said design.
Does anyone know any good design software?
2) I have been loving Jim Wendler’s 5/3/1. I haven’t done back squats in a very long time, so I have been having some trouble gauging how much I can lift with them, but I’m getting better. My bench, too, has been consistently getting stronger (in general, not far enough into 5/3/1 to say otherwise).
I was never much of a bench presser until recently. This past week I managed 5 x 90 lbs EASY when I was struggling to get out 3 reps at the same weight a few weeks ago. That would also be my answer if you asked me the question on my tank.
3) I went out last night for the first time in a few weeks. Being on my Whole30, I
kept my friends out of trouble played DD. Let me tell you, there was some stellar people watching at Sharkey’s between 11:30PM and12:30AM. I learned that football players/athletes have GREAT asses.
I know this for fact because all of their pants were held up by magic right beneath their glorious glutes. How does gravity not bring them down and what is the point of wearing a belt?
4) I’m really starting to gear up for the grad school transition.
My TA application is in and I am making a trip up north Easter weekend to go look at apartments. Classes start Sept 1, but there is orientation the last week in August before then.
I have my lease here until July 31st, so my plan is to get a place starting in July, move over the course of that month and keep working at my poop lab as long as I can. That will give me a few weeks in August between work and school to play catch-up in my professors lab and learn what is going on.
The whole thing has me scared shitless and I’ve been avoiding thinking about it. Now that the date is approaching (almost exactly 4 months away), reality is setting in.
