"How long," they say, "how long, O cruel nation, Will you stand, to move the world, on a child's heart, β€”
Stifle down with a mailed heel its palpitation, And tread onward to your throne amid the mart ?
Our blood splashes upward, O our tyrants, And your purple shews your path ;
But the child's sob curseth deeper in the silence Than the strong man in his wrath !"

Two days in a row working out(also the only days this month :P). Finally getting back in the flow of things after getting the flu aka zombie apocalypse strain and work. Time to hit my fitness goals for the new year with a vengeance now that I’m healthy again. Minus this Sunday ;) #2018 #fitness #fitnessgoals #nyc

Home for a too quick 36 hours. Got to see best friends. Eat at portillos and giordanos. So good. Thankful. Off to Hawaii in 7 hours. Good thing I got my beach body ready by gaining 5lbs since I got here ;) Mahalo.

1. The real MVP (good guy sweeping the floor) 2. Possibly the narrowest and longest indoor gym in NYC πŸ˜‚. Hitting up two spots in one night. @indoorhoops #ballislife #indoorhoopster #astoria #lic #nyc

Today FB reminded me that I used to be fit af πŸ˜‚ Seriously though. It took us a really long time to win the Chitown Labor Day basketball tournament. Basically we had to learn how to play like a team, focus in defense and put our egos aside (see Spurs) And put in the work together individually and as a team (running up ski hills, playing local tournaments, playing with teachers at 5am) We ended up winning two more championships in upper division. Maybe one more before we hang it up πŸ˜‰ #basketball #team #family #wcac .

Reminiscing of times in college where we would pack in my little celica and drive to Chicago. $1 burger and wings at McCormick and Shmicks. Joy Yees. And then chill at the beach.
Also my hand hurts from this piece. I hope I don't get arthritis 😝
