“Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. That's relativity.”

I am guilty of over committing to in-depth projects and time consuming volunteer opportunities. I've read a couple books on time management that clearly state one of the most important things to do while managing your time is to learn how to say no but the thing is, I don't want to say no. My parents must have done an exceptional job convincing me that I could do anything I set my mind to because I naively believe it to this day! Call me thrill seeking but I get this surge of adrenaline just knowing that deadlines are approaching and I may or may not have just enough time to finish everything on my plate! Run little Hampster, run!
Reason #1: The Gimlin/Patterson Film

Not long ago I was having a conversation with 'M' (the guy who sometimes sleeps in my bed, takes me out to dinner, treats me like a princess) about worldwide communications and how there are sub-sea cables that make it all possible. His immediate response was something to the effect of, "They would have to be some sort of magical cables to run long the bottom of the sea."
A couple days later I was flipping through TED Talks and found the perfect way to prove that the magical cables were quite real, click on the link below to see for yourself.
When you start dating someone who uses words such as 'Arduous' and 'Insatiable' in everyday conversation I suggest a glass of wine (the sweet kind, not the kind that forces you to make fish like faces) and a subscription to dictionary.com.
I have this theory that it might be possible that women have a 'hamster wheel' and men have a 'nothing box' after watching this video:
I dedicated a page on this site just to the Hampster Dance so go on, check it out: The Hampster Dance
Sometimes the best part of my day is knowing that my chair spins. If my chair could talk I have a good feeling it would say something to the effect of "Though you feel your backside is one of your best ASSets, taking a walk from time to time would give us both a break. I'm not here solely for your entertainment and you should really get out a little more. P.S. - Please organize your cords a little better so they stop getting stuck in my wheels." There is a strong possibility that the Hampster running around in my brain feels the same way. (Yes I know the correct spelling is Hamster, however that website was already taken so I have decided to capitalize on the fact that a good percentage of the time people mistakenly add in the 'P').
