Cool Clouds! -vvv

Some moments before sunset yesterday, I happened to look west and witnessed a wonderful spectacle. A large cumulus had obscured the Sun while allowing rays of sunlight to escape on the right. That divided the sky into two halves, light and dark. And just above the cumulus was the largest iridescent cloud I have ever seen (not that I've seen a lot though, probably on less than three occasions). I don't have a picture of that but here's one by Velachery Balu that looks rather similar. What I saw was a little brighter.

IPPT -vvv

I went down to ol' Khatib Camp to clear my IPPT on Saturday. It was supposed to be relatively easy since it was my first IPPT after ORD. Even so, it has been almost two years since the last time I took the test and I don't exactly work out regularly. Besides the 2.4km run, the only preparation I did was an occasional set of chin-ups on my way home from work.

Surprisingly, my legs were still as strong as back in the NS days. Not quite enough to run up walls but more than sufficient for clearing the shuttle run and standing broad jump. I guess the Friday Tai Chi sessions help after all. Chin-up was ok even though the machine didn't count my 7th chin-up. Looks like PTIs are still more reliable than sensors.

The 2.4km run wasn't too relaxing. Apparently, running the 12km route for the SBR/AHM wasn't as big a help as I thought. I still lacked the endurance for speed. Think I'll start on RSM's interval training regime earlier next year.

Co-Rumination -vww

Co-rumination is the act of extensively discussing your problems with friends, something we all know girls like to do. Here's the funny part, a recent study shows that while co-rumination improves friendship for both gender, co-rumination among girls lead to an increase in anxiety and depression.

You can just imagine that when a girl is depressed, she talks about her problems with her girlfriends. Then they all get depressed and what's the solution for that? More co-rumination! So next time a girl tries to do that to you, you might actually be doing her a favour by telling her to shut up.

Here's a PDF copy of the paper for the hardcore. I only read the abstract.
Prospective Associations of Co-Rumination With Friendship and Emotional Adjustment: Considering the Socioemotional Trade-Offs of Co-Rumination

Oh my. This I agree. So after some time I shut up and spend some time alone to sort out my thoughts.
