Doubtfully Daily Matigo - Relaxation

The Pathway

Nozomi and I took a walk to the park after lunch today. Along the way, I decided to try out my new Audio Technica AT9913iS Shotgun Microphone. After a number of test recordings followed by a few soliloquies recorded into Auphonic, I'm willing to admit that I'm quite impressed with how well the device captures sound. For this show, my phone was sitting on a table next to a park bench about 50cm from my face. Nice weather, a slight breeze, and regular noises one might hear when living in a mid-sized city are all captured in this five minute recording.

Three Months Later

Scale and Weight

Believe it or not, I’ve been trying to reduce my weight over the last three months. 92 days ago I weighed 87.2 kilograms and today, as a result of careful calorie counting and shooting for 60K steps per week, I can say that I am 82.7 kilograms. The first few weeks were hard but, after just two weeks, the reduced food intake and increased activity actually started to have a positive effect on my attitude.

An Olympic schedule, if you will. I like this.

Why Use iCloud?

Spinning Disks

Earlier this year when Apple introduced the 200GB iCloud storage tier, I thought it was a pretty decent deal. Although the amount of space was way more than I needed, I liked the idea of having the flexibility to share as many photos and movies of Nozomi as I wanted with family without micromanaging the size of my picture storage. Besides, at 400円 a month, who am I to complain? Sadly this simplicity was not to last.

A Long Way from Nanaimo

Nanaimo Bars

Despite the three-months of calorie counting, step counting, portion controlling, and overall healthier living, I had the strongest desire to whip up a batch of Nanaimo Bars today. Each square has enough energy to fuel a human body for 10,000 years. They’re not very healthy, but they are delicious beyond belief.
