Technology Is Connecting Me to Myself

In class we often talk about how the "World is Flat", with the advance of technology around the World. However, today I got the ability to connect to myself with new technology. What do I mean?

Today, I received my Nike+. It is a device that plugs into my Ipod and tracks my running with a device on my shoe. After running, you plug in your Ipod to your computer and it downloads your information. At this point, you can go to your nike.com account to look at your most recent workout or any previous workout. I believe nike.com will hold up to one thousand workouts. I will be using this device over the weekend, which will give me time to really look at how it works and tracks my progress. I love this stuff!

On the school front, I have a Globalization and Corporate Responsibility quiz tomorrow. I am not nervous about it, since it is a short answer test. I know I can write about anything, which makes a written test fairly easy for me, unlike standardized test, which throw me for a loop with all the different choices. Wish me luck.

Finally, I have some wonderful, outstanding news! My oldest friend, Seth, proposed to his girlfriend today and she actually said, "yes!" Actually, I knew she would say yes. They have been dating for 7+ yrs and have lived together for at least three of those years. Now I just can't wait for the bachelor party.

This is a picture of Seth and Amy taken last month, when they were seeing String Cheese at Red Rocks in CO.

  1. Holy crap, that is amazing!! Then I went to the website and was wondering how many of hundreds of dollars that must cost, when in reality it is cheaper than most of the nano sleeves that are available.... I'm not going to buy it, but my mind is freakin' blown!
