I’m making my new year’s resolution one month delayed. It’s no big deal, right? I’m taking off my iTunes, iPod, mobile phone etc ALL sad songs that I like. You may don’t believe this but the songs you listen to influence a lot how you behave everyday, specially when you love sad songs and spend 80% of your waking hours listening to music on your portable music player.
Things are going to go crazy this year, I’m going to need a very proactive and motivated attitude. As much as I love a good and “depressing” song, I can’t listen to them anymore because they always put me down. So… well, farewell, my friends. I’m gonna miss you all. It’s painful. It’s like ending a relantionship with your long term boyfriend or something. Jesus.
Of course, being injured and unable to train isn’t being fucked up enough. Well, for me, at least. Recently I’ve put my hands on Coldplay’s Live 2012 DVD and I gotta say, one of the best purchases I did this year. Everything is so beautiful it brought tears to my eyes during some moments. Charlie Brown proved once again to be my favorite song on Mylo Xyloto - It’s awesome to see/listen it live. Coldplay’s performance at Stade de France, Paris (which you can see in the DVD) made my cry. Other songs I like such as Viva La Vida, Hurts Like Heaven, Yellow, Every Teardrop is a Waterfall, Major Minus, Paradise etc were great too. Needless to say, Live 2012 is a must see if you like Coldplay even if you’re not that much of a hardcore fan.
…be careful if you have some kind of photosensitivity though. There’s a warning on the DVD box but I watched it anyway because fuck off and I started to feel some kind of dizzyness starting at a random point. When I was a teenager I had some seizures, did some medical examinations but never got the proof it was epilepsy (which is kind of normal because it’s VERY hard to diagnosis epilepsy precisely), though the doctor suspected it was. I took some medication as precaution, but still. All the flashing lights and colors triggered some sort of photosensitivity I never knew I had in the first place (but suspected). Sucked hard. Knowing that you can’t even watch a DVD of your favorite band like a normal person is a terrible feeling. Anyway, I still managed to watch the whole DVD. Take that!
Did not train last week because as soon as monday I got a terrible injury on a left hand nail. Guess what, a 30lb dumbbell fell right on it. Talk about pain and blood all over the place. So yeah, no weight training, bodyweight training or swimming for me for a week. And my injury isn’t even 100% recovered yet though I’m almost there. I think tomorrow when I wake up it will be good enough to workout. Maybe. I can only hope. It still hurts when I make a fist or fully open my hands and I don’t want to risk opening the wound again and then restart from zero. It sucks.
But one week without training was enough to make me see once again that sweating through physical training is definitely the love of my life.
P.S.: Reading and writing, I love you a lot as well, don’t be jealous, okay?
