Yup, it’s a new year and I need to get a few things off my chest. In my daily travels around NYC there are some things I observe on a daily basis that just rub me the wrong way. Even though it’s the first week of 2013 with the air of new beginnings some things just never change. Experiencing a few of these first hand this week made me ponder a bit. It all adds to my list of Rantings & Ravings.
Here’s a few things that literally make me want to smack people upside the head.

Here we go! I decided to not wait until after New Year’s to get back in the gym. After taking a much needed break these past few weeks to let my body recuperate a bit and heal up some nagging injuries I felt it was time to get back in gear.
