    Depending on what you could do it could work. If I hadn't met my wife I'd prob still be in NYC for better or worse. NC def has its downsides too

    I have a squat rack in my living room though. I can't go back

    I definitely drank a lot more when I was single. Now that I have a girlfriend it's much more weed and anime and board games and cooking.

    The problem is that I like being social and it seems that so much NYC social life revolves around drinking.

    Today I curled in the gym using an eleiko bar and eleiko bumper plates off of clean blocks on a platform. Such a good feel.

    This ON 5lb Chocolate Whey I got taste like garbage, something must have gone wrong with this batch. Hopefully Amazon can help me out here. It taste like sour grahm crackers, so weird been eating this protein for over a year now and the bad taste is noticeable.

    edit - Amazon is awesome, 8 minutes later they shipped me out a new one next day air.

    On the topic of protein powder taste... I recently bought Dymatize cookies and cream flavored casein protein. It is hands down the best tasting protein powder I've ever had (and I've tried a lot). It mixes easier than any other protein powder I've had as well. Going to try their whey soon.

    Re: drinking, I'm still in college and so it's very well expected that I get drunk with my friends. I enjoy it, though I tend to enjoy the sitting and relaxing type bars over manic dance floor bars. School starts back Tuesday for me, so Friday night I went up with some friends to a house in the middle of the woods and just got absolutely trashed the last two nights (net damage: 4 cases of beer, 1 fifth of fireball, 1 bottle of champagne, and about a handle of burnetts between 12 people). Going to drink again tonight as I'm back on campus with a bunch of friends I've not seen for a month.

    I find myself not enjoying it quite as much anymore and I've toned down over the past few months from where I was, now usually only drinking 4-6 drinks a night instead of 10+.

    random thought: i fucked up my shoulder either slept on it wrong or screwed it up playing water basketball. Hopefully feels better tomorrow so I can hit the gym.

    I do have an English degree haha, I hear those are somewhat in demand... give me some more information. I could teach yes?


    Low stress is exactly what it is. I just want to be calm and comfortable. Hear you on the older people thing as well, most of my friends are a bit older, and people are usually surprised to find out i'm only 22. Such is life.

    Trimmed my chest hair, forgot how insanely more defined that makes you look hahaha.

    Also trying out these Tan Towel things to see if they'll work so I don't have to be pale anymore. Seem pretty simple to use, will report back after results.

    Yep, from Newport News, and ended up back here, though I work in Norfolk now.

    UPS tracking says I should have Starting Strength 3rd edition and a new lifting belt in hand by the end of the day.

    Just signed at a top bulge bracket investment bank. I finally made it brahs, next stop the buy side. Kind of russled because i sent off over 50 apps and this was my second one, wasted so much time prepping for other interviews.

    It means the top 10 investment banks, goldman, morgan stanley, jp morgan, deutsche bank, UBS, credit suisse, bank of america merill lynch, citi group, barlcays and HSBC. They're the most desirable ones to work for. It's IBD. Still going to go to the interview for lev fin because it's more interesting to me then making pitch books, but this is one of the best bulge brackets, where as the lev fin is lower down the list so it would be a hard choice. I haven't actually signed yet, but I was made an exploding offer.
