Travis Smith: my resume, bio and photos back to the main blog page

I’m 187 lbs. right now.  It’s not hugely overweight, but it’s heavier than I’ve been in two years, and it’s not a good amount to weigh if I want to be able to run up and down the field playing Ultimate, which I plan to do again this summer.

So I’m working to slim down to 169 or so.  That’s about 18 lbs. difference.  I’d like to lose that in about 2-3 months, which means I’ve got to lose about 1.5 lbs. a week.

I figure if I eat right, stop drinking, and exercise more than I have been (i.e. more than just two flights of stairs a day (one up, one down)) then I’ll have no problem. So if I turn down a second helping of your delicious dinner, or I drink a Diet Coke instead of a beer this Spring, that’s why.

Oh, and I don’t regret for a minute getting bigger.  So much delicious BBQ!

Thoughts About SXSW 2008


“The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.”

...who said it?

“Almost every American I know does trade large portions of his life for entertainment, hour by weeknight hour, binge by Saturday binge, Facebook check by Facebook check. I’m one of them. In the course of writing this I’ve watched all 13 episodes of House of Cards and who knows how many more West Wing episodes, and I’ve spent any number of blurred hours falling down internet rabbit holes. All instead of reading, or writing, or working, or spending real time with people I love.”

...who said it?

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

“I play with variables constantly.”

“Only the person who has learned Continual Love coming from a heart of Gratitude/Worship can effectively deal with the problem of loneliness.”
