Have You Ever Done a Super Spartan? They Are so Much Fun!

A few months back, a co-worker of mine convinced me to join my company's Spartan Race team. He didn't talk it up much: he mentioned it's a long-ish run with a few fun obstacles. You know, no big deal. Something someone who runs as much as me should complete more than easily (read, you don't really need to train for it). Ha ha ha.

I Can't Believe it Took me This Long! The Menil Collection.

I hadn't even heard of the Menil Collection until I randomly stumbled upon their Facebook page a few months ago (apparently, Houstonians are good at keeping secrets...!). Immediately, I promised myself I'd visit the first sunny weekend I get. Fast-forward a few sunny weekends (life has a way of keeping you busy) and I finally made it this Sunday!

The Bookworm in Me | My Latest Favorite Books

I love books. The old-school, preferably paperback kind of books. And my reads are very rarely an escape from reality... you would be hard pressed to find any fiction on my reading list. I tend to read in order to learn and I like to learn because I am curious. Looking at my reading list is also quite telling... I seem to be most curious about psychologybehavioral economics and the digital evolution/revolution.

Ready for Spring? YES.

March 1st is a rather notable day in Bulgaria where we celebrate with a tradition of giving each other "martenitsas". Martenitsa is a small piece of adornment, made of white and red yarn and worn from March 1 until around the end of March. It is related to the Bulgarian tradition of welcoming the upcoming spring. The month of March, according to Bulgarian folklore, marks the beginning of springtime. Therefore, the first day of March is a traditional holiday associated with sending off winter and welcoming spring.
