My love of Chipotle: Chapter 1, The Beginning of the Affair

I think this blog would not be complete without telling you about my obsession with Chipotle.

Our relationship first began while I was seeing someone else. My girlfriend at the time and I were on a road trip to her hometown in Colorado. She told me about this cool place with huge burritos so we went to check it out.

Stuck in a rut?

Recently I was talking to someone close to me, who is going through some life changes. I noticed that every few years his life seems to get a complete reset. The girl he is in a relationship with bails for whatever reason, he experiences a job change, and his friends seem to fall away. All at once.

Like the legendary phoenix, he always rises from these circumstances and will get a new cast of people in his life, a new job, and usually start dating someone a little better.

I Might Have Made a Mis-steak.

So I broke my meat fast.

Last week I took my brother out to a Brazilian Steakhouse. To train for “The Meat Olympics”, I ate meat at least once a day for the four days prior to the event.

I had just been on a 21-day raw fruit and vegetable challenge, and having spent the last year as a Pescetarian, I knew I was in for a wild ride.

All Your Books Are Belong to Us!

This blog post is more of a PSA than anything but might help some of you out there.

As many of you know I read a ton of books. Last year I read 400+ books (mainly graphic novels). What you might not know about me is I am pretty frugal. Out of those books I purchased 4. Since books cost money I go to this thing some of you might have heard of, the Library.

Stop Talkin’ Trash!

Last year I came up with the idea of not saying a negative thing about another human being as my 2014 resolution. It met received mixed reviews. Some thought it was amazing, some were taken away by the idea and some thought it was stupid and unrealistic. But the more I talked about it, the more I realized it was something important that I had to do.

Wanna Time Travel?

Those who know me, know I love science fiction. I read tons of books and graphic novels. When I watch a movie, usually that is the genre I gravitate towards.

One of the coolest ideas that are fun to think about and try to wrap your head around is the theory of time travel.

A year in review and a look ahead.

I love New Years’. My full-time job is in the personal development industry, so I look at this as the holiday of goal-setting. It is amazing to see what you can do in the year by doing (or not doing) little things each day at a time. A year is a great span of time to measure how you are developing as a human being. With that in mind here is what I set out to do in 2013 and how I did.
