Update for the past two years: I started GORUCKing, grad school and got a motorcycle. As of this past week I started meditating. That first day for 3 minutes was pretty brutal because I don’t know what I’m doing other than focusing on my breathing. Now I can get to 5 minutes with no issues but that first (and only) time I hit 20 minutes I didn’t know what to expect or do other than just sit there. 20 minutes is a long ass time to just sit there and try to focus on your breathing.
It is my intention to blog once or twice a week because this is fun.
[edit August 2017: more meditating, less school, less motorcycle, less GORUCK]
