Summer Of Mind Games

Dear Har-old,

Buddha once said, “To keep the body in good health is a duty… otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.”

To help clear your head, your stomach needs to growl.

Your body runs the track; your mind uses it for lift-off.

Your mind and body are one.

How do you treat it as such?

Get your body ready in the summer instead of for it.

Because most people get their bodies ready for a summer that school is out. Oh, the paradox.

That food is not going to your thighs; it’s going to your head.

What are you bringing to the table?

A book and a hot plate.

The book to put under one of the legs so your plate doesn’t slide off the table.


Futuristically yours,

  1. healthy is always a good thing., I’ve spent my summer just being chill n healthy n reading endlessly (of course with chores and occasional working out sprees) but yeah, any interesting books?


    1. I just finished two books. The 2010 edition of Zappos Culture Book and Tony Hsieh’s (Zappos CEO) Delivering Happiness. Now I’m reading The Prince by Machiavelli. I’m also in and out of The 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene and Success Through A Positive Mental Atitude by Napoleon Hill and W. Clement Stone. What about you?


      1. i cant say i’ve read those but ive heard of Machiavelli :))
        and recently ive read The Shape of Water by Anne Spollen and Everfound by Neal Shusterman this week. lol idk if you’ve heard of either but i liked them. (am liking everfound since i have only 300 pgs to go 🙂 )


  2. my first comment!
    Iagree, there’s soo much out there to read, same goes with food..but a book can never make you fat(:. rRading really does broaden our minds, we get to experience life in somone els’s shoes. George Orwell’s 1984 is my favorite, and its a really good read, you get to experience being “trapped” where even your journals, or blogs, in our case could lead to your demise!


    1. I also enjoy dystopian fiction 😀 Lately I really enjoyed ‘The Year of the Flood’ by Margaret Atwood and also ‘Anthem’ by Ayn Rand. I found 1984 quite hard to get through, but then I was reading it during exam time, and that’s not the best time to attempt to relax with a book.
