Preparing my body for war against the machines

I’ve been trying to better myself in a variety of ways the last month or so. For one, I read a lot more. It was something I always enjoyed doing but I was always hindered by distractions of video games and television, and complete laziness. Can someone say excuses?

I bought a couple of dumb bells and a pull up bar for my home so I can start working out. I looked this guy up on YouTube called Mike Chang with Six Pack Short Cuts who has some really neat at-home workouts. I did the leg one this morning and oh-my-goodness the pain!! I had a protein fruit shake afterwards and was wondering why my legs didn’t feel THAT jello-y. But, upon trying to sit, it was the toughest time I had sitting down since I almost blew a wide hole in the toilet seat when I was sick a couple of weeks ago.

I’d like to see the world, and the easiest way for me to do so would be to join the Navy. I already have a business degree, but I want something more out of life than to just collect a paycheck. Before I have the responsibility of a family of my own, I need to do things that will give me a heightened sense of self. The Navy can help me do that. I’d like to be a mechanic of aircraft. That would be much better than sitting in front of a computer all week.

With that being said, I am nowhere near as physically fit as I need to be in order to join the Navy. I am giving myself one year, and if I still want to join and I keep up my activities for this year, I can be ready by next summer.

Anyways, in the next 30 years humanity will see a huge change in how we live (if we’re living at all). The option to plant our consciousness inside of a physical copy of ourselves will be quite possible, enabling us to live forever. I want to make sure my current, and destroy-able body, can make it to that point.

Would you want to live forever?
