Hi my name is Alex and I am...


 Hopeless according to Helen.  For Halloween this year I wanted to dress up as Goku from Dragon Ball Z.  I have a gi that I was going to get a friend to dye orange and silk screen the symbols on it.  I got a blue under gi and even the body weights if I wanted to be really hardcore.  I am already a blonde so I don't need to yell for a few episodes to go super saiyan.  I think that this is a great idea.

The reality of this though is that I wanted them just to train in all the time and Halloween was just convenient.  Body weights are a great way to build functional strength, but moving on....  

Helen thinks that I am too much of a geek, nerd, otaku or whatever you want to call it.  Just because I enjoy my Saturday morning cartoons when I am not working or like the occasional anime does not warrant putting me in that category.  Or just because I play Pokémon when I have absolutely nothing else to do that I am some kind of who knows what.  I really don't like to be labeled any of those things.  There really isn't anything wrong with being a nerd, otaku ECT... it has become prevalent in mainstream society to the point where everyone plays some sort of game or watches some kind of cartoon.  I just don't think of myself as one.  I can identify and relate to fanatics about gaming or anime but it is not my life.  I think that Helen spends way more time gaming and on the Internet then I do. :p  I still love her though. :)

I love videogames and hate them at the same time.  They are so much fun and can be an escape from reality but for to many people they replace reality.  Yeah!  Now I am a lv. 2 swordsman.  Oh really... go run a mile.      Try to lv. up in real life instead. :p  It is a lot harder but can be even more rewarding. So yeah got side tracked for a bit.  Just don't try and label me because it is just being lazy on your part.

You make me feel guilty for playing WoW when I really should be exercising. Dammit... :P

Word, I hate it when people just write me off as a nerd. I wish I exercised a bit more but does walking everywhere count? ;;

I dunno, I feel like if people want to play games all day and not work out, it's their prerogative XD We're all going to be using anti-grav chairs and hologram phones before long anyway, like Wall-E :D

Make sure you use plain gelatin to get your hair to be super spiky! :D

Labels are bad. unless they let you now whats in it, when it expires, or if it's poison.

Don't feel guilty for playing WoW I played it to a few years back. And for the run a mile part, it doesn't have to be exercise. It could be reading a book, or studying, just anything that actually makes you a better person in real life thats all. I just think that people should spend as much time improving themselves as improving a character in a game.

Poison is bad... But no labels makes it more fun. :p
