One of life's great ironies is that when you're younger, you can't
wait to get out of school, but as you get older, all you want is to
return to it.
Maybe that's because the world seemed simpler during those years,
but for me it's the growing realization that there's so much more
to learn about life, the universe, and everything--and a shrinking
amount of time in which to learn it. (Bonus points if you caught
that Douglas Adams reference.)
Alas, I lack the mountains of money usually required to go back to

Facebook, Inc, recently launched a brand-new ad format, called a
"Featured Story," which dumps paid content - rather than updates
from Great Aunt Lynn about her recent biopsy or one of those
internet memes - squarely into our news feeds. Worse, these paid
advertisements (a.k.a. "news feed) shows the actions of the
Facebook users friends and these ads are front-and-center on our
Facebook news feed.
Great. More ads.
I've been mildly annoyed by the ads (read: "Sponsored Stories") on
the sidebar of Facebook, but have been able to tune them out. Now,
when I'm blearily checking to see if I've gotten any response to my
"Which Disney Princess Are You?" post, I'm bound to accidentally
click a Featured Story.
You know what? I'm sick of ads.
Because I have to sell my firstborn son in order to see a movie
these days, I do it perhaps twice a year.

I "splurged" on my fitness expenditures and joined a gym this week. I have been meaning to do it for six weeks now and I finally braved the nearby 24-Hour Fitness (interestingly enough, just like every other 24-Hour Fitness I've ever seen, not open 24 hours a day...). My first workout was fabulous, but when I saw the personal trainers leading their clients around and encouraging them to "Keep moving!," I wondered whether that would be something I could afford. To put it simply--I can't. I did the next best thing: I searched Google for free online personal training.
I found two worthwhile (and free!) sites that come recommended from me--plus a third that costs money--but far less than an actual personal trainer.
