so it's muscular

Toronto, 2013.10.08

Today I learned from my physiotherapist that a long-standing discomfort I've been putting up with is not a side effect of a surgery I had six months ago, but of a lifetime of slothful lazy about in front of computers. It turns out that some muscles that connect my spine with my legs have become shortened and tensed up.

To demonstrate, he stuck his fingers down into my belly, past the flabby muscles and internal organs, and started probing the muscles that line the inside of my back. Ooof!

(In which I leave the final word to someone else.)

One day you will take a fork in the road, and you're going to have to make a decision about which direction you want to go. If you go one way, you can be somebody. You will have to make compromises and you will have to turn your back on your friends. But you will be a member of the club and you will get promoted and get good assignments. Or you can go the other way and you can do something [...] for yourself. If you decide to do something, you may not get promoted and get good assignments and you certainly will not be a favorite of your superiors. But you won't have to compromise yourself. To be somebody or to do something. In life there is often a roll call. That's when you have to make a decision. To be or to do.
