Junk Food Tastes Good Because It's Bad For You

How is everyone out there doing? I hope your life is being fantastic.

I love Berkeley. It is probably my favorite place in the world. Which is kind of funny, because I've traveled everywhere and a half, and I practically live at my favorite place. Cool deal. I got my dose of Berkeley today, because I haven't really been there in months.

Church was good - Josh McPaul (college advisor guy) gave the sermon, which is always extra cool because he is fortunate enough to be Australian, so it's great to listen to him talk. I got to spend time just walking around Berkeley after the service, which was terrific. I got a Jamba Juice and walked around the university campus, which is just gorgeous. There's a little creek with some cool bridges, lots of trees, etc. There's a hall that looks like the Haunted Mansion or something. I walked over to the Campanile, which (unlike the dinky imitation at Whitworth) is actually a bell tower. I don't think they actually use bells anymore, but it's still awesome cool. Quite a landmark. I can see it from the plane when I fly from Oakland to Spokane.

Did a little shopping on Telegraph. Bought movies at Rasputin's. Browsed around Cody's, the large independent bookstore (incidentally, my favorite place in the world. Well, one of them. I love Powell's Books in Portland - that is a huge bookstore). My sister dragged me into Wet Seal, which I've only been to a handful of times, and ended up buying some clothes. Oye.

Then my sister and brother and I had to fend for ourselves and take BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit - kind of like our subway) home. We were sitting in the Downtown Berkeley BART station for probably 20 minutes, which I thought was really cool, because it's underground and dim and cold, kind of like a cave, and I like caves. Haha.

Anyway, walked home from the San Leandro BART station and made some lunch. Good stuff. Now I'm just hanging out and - what's this? Actually starting the essays I've been talking about all weekend? It's a miracle!

Here's a good random fact for you (thanks to Bryce): An apple is better than coffee at waking you up in the morning. I think I've actually heard this one before, but I have yet to try it. I wonder if it matters what kind of apple it is. I'm a Fuji apple fan, myself.

Have the best day of your life!

PS: I figured out how to change it so that anyone can post comments on my blog, not just other blogspot zombies like me. So that's cool fun and exciting news. Peace out.
