Vitamins

Vitamins were the sort of thing I always casually knew I should do, but I did it haphazardly in the past. Starting about three months ago, I would track whether I took a vitamin every day, and at the end of the week list how many days I remembered to take a vitamin. It's been 7 out of 7 pretty much every week since then.

The first vitamins I picked up in Seoul were chewable vitamin C tablets. I was pretty tired and run down at that point and wasn't sure why, so I changed my diet a little, started doing more walking, and started taking vitamins and my energy picked up quite a bit. I don't know how much of that was the vitamin C, but since then a couple times I've felt a little under the weather I took two of them that day, and my energy has been pretty high.

I was just about out of vitamins, so I bought some more here in Hong Kong. I got vitamin C again, and I was also looking for something for joints since I had a knee injury in the past. I was looking for some L-Glutamine which I heard was good, did a little casual research on, and it seems good:

It is also known that glutamine has various effects in reducing healing time after operations. Hospital-stay times after abdominal surgery can be reduced by providing parenteral nutrition regimes containing high amounts of glutamine to patients. Clinical trials have revealed that patients on supplementation regimes containing glutamine have improved nitrogen balances, generation of cysteinyl-leukotrienes from polymorphonuclear neutrophil granulocytes, and improved lymphocyte recovery and intestinal permeability (in postoperative patients), in comparison to those that had no glutamine within their dietary regime, all without any side-effects. - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glutamine#Aiding_recovery_after_surgery

Tie Dyed Shorts by Melissa

On The Constance Chronicles

I decided to try sprucing up some shorts I had in my closet. Living in Korea is temporary so making sure you keep the amount of clothing you have to a reasonable amount is essential for easy packing when it’s time to go back home. I buy most of my stuff at the 1,000 won (one dollar) markets they have in Busan and Seoul. I grabbed three pairs of boring shorts and started a project at 2am.

I used hair ties, silly bands, and random ribbon in my apt to tie off the shorts. I folded them mostly in a fan style.. i wanted to create vertical stripes down the shorts.

I’m left with the gay blair witch project on my floor.
