A Little More Praise For My Keyboard And Whether Or Not I’m Still An Athlete

This thing is called a “gaming keyboard,” and it really does feel good while gaming, but honestly, all keyboards were meant to be typed on. And typing on the K70 is probably the nicest experience I’ve had with a computer. Feels more intimate for some reason. Probably because I get so much tactile feedback in return. Oh yes, did I mention the clacking? Hehe.

So yes, blogging, let’s do this. By the way if you blog on the daily, look into getting a mechanical keyboard and look into the different types of switches (Lifehacker has a nice article, I recommend starting there).

Anyway, so I guess I’ll talk about my life.

I’ve started working out again. I’ve just been doing some running around school and lifting weights for leg strength. I got frustrated this Thursday though because I found out that I couldn’t use the squat bar with my messed up ulnar collateral ligament. I was so sad. I was waiting for a while to be able to use the squat rack but they were taken the last few days before. I got all pumped up to use it that time, and my elbow says, “lol nope get outta here bro,” so I had to do squats while holding dumbbells instead. Those aren’t the same though. However, I got a nice suggestion to try front squats to circumvent this problem. Not sure when and how I’m going to learn how to front squat though… and that lift looks like it needs serious flexibility, so the learning curve might be a little ridonk, I’m not sure.

But there you are, the frustrations of an athlete.

Am I even an athlete anymore? Hehe, I’m not even doing a sport right now. I guess if I work out enough I’ll be considered “athletic,” at the very least. But being an athlete is so much more than that. Being an athlete’s not just about working out, it’s about competing too. My main competition is myself right now… I suppose I am still an athlete after all.

What do you think? What defines an athlete for you?
