Moleskin: My preblast brought predictions of the dirty hookup and I didn’t disappoint. How could I? I love it. Snaphook came in with a GIF to inspire a modified dirty hookup. The HIIT wasn’t a hit. <pause for irony> The IPC Tuesday made our merkins painful. The positive spin? The cool air felt great.

Sprinters Duel was fun. If you are in the sprinters start, you think you’ve got the guy sitting beat – but since when they choose when to start, they can usually win. The competitiveness was having everyone breathing hard. The Optimus and Bumblebee pairing was fun to see, dinner conversation might be tense over there.

COT closed out with some Viktor Frankl “By declaring that man is responsible and must actualize the potential meaning of his life, I wish to stress that the true meaning of life is to be discovered in the world rather than within man or his own psyche, as though it were a closed system. I have termed this constitutive characteristic “the self-transcendence of human existence.” It denotes the fact that being human always points, and is directed, to something or someone, other than oneself–be it a meaning to fulfill or another human being to encounter. The more one forgets himself–by giving himself to a cause to serve or another person to love–the more human he is and the more he actualizes himself. What is called self-actualization is not an attainable aim at all, for the simple reason that the more one would strive for it, the more he would miss it. In other words, self-actualization is possible only as a side-effect of self-transcendence.”

Thanks Men!
