- you had talked before about how to try and do things differently and today "to do things differently" i went to the gym. i work on campus every friday from 9-11 in the Campus Ministry Office and normally when i get off work, i go back to my room and take a nap. but today (even though i was pretty sleepy), i decided to go to the gym. so i grabbed my lovely mini-green iPod and went on the elliptical for 30 minutes and while running, i listened to your podcast.
- another thing that i've been doing differently for about the past month is eating vegetarian. it's helped me to try new foods (i highly recommend a salad of romaine lettuce, mandarin oranges, crunchy chinese noodles, black beans, and corn-yummy!). but more importantly, i see it as an opportunity to foster a deeper understanding of the principle of non-violence and allow me to incorporate that principle more fully in my life.
