The Dept. of Useless & Ill-Informed Opinions

Craft beer, Brooklyn and NYC, politics, tech, baseball, other stuff.

I am inherently not someone who goes after things that I’m not sure will work out in my favor. If there’s even a reasonable question as to whether or not I’ll be successful, my natural tendency is to stand pat.

(This is not to say that I don’t first try to stack the deck in my favor before making the decision, because I sure do that when I can.)

The handful of times in my life where I’ve thrown caution to the wind and gone for it, when it has paid off (because of course it doesn’t always), that payoff has been better than most, both in the reward and in the feeling I’ve gotten.

So tonight, I’m going after something where I most certainly do not have any assurances of success. Your good vibes/positive feelings/well wishes are appreciated in advance, team.

More later…

That right there is some seriously Park Slope-ish graffiti, my friends.

Of course this is a thing now!(Apologies for Gothamist, mostly because of the Jake Dobkin graffiti “expert” quote at the end.)

Man, there’s a lot of Hasidics walking through my neighborhood tonight.

Pretty sure they’re all headed to Franny’s for pizza.

I’ve heard of “bodega cats,” but “grocery store dogs” might be taking this too far for me…

Recap: Another solid week, plain and simple, keeping it going. I’m still looking to branch out and expand the time I spend, but it hasn’t been feasible for the better part of the past week and a half. Hopefully soon…

Time: Crazy fast, actually. Before this week, I hadn’t had any individual day be faster than 18 minutes, and I’d only hit 18 minutes twice over 34 days (keep in mind that I time by whole minutes based off the clock on the cable box, I’m not running a stopwatch here). This week, I hit 17 minutes on five of the seven days. My daily average dropped to 17:34 from 19:10. This is clearly well into the “habit and routine” part of it that I was anxiously awaiting.

Action Park is coming back? God save us all…
