well, here is a transcript of the e-mail i sent nason last week.
My dearest Nason and Emmy,
We all knew it was a bold undertaking when I first proposed it to the family that fateful night at dinner. A six pack would secure my position as ring boy at your glorious wedding. I regret to inform you that at my current standing it seems as though I will be unable to acquire a six pack by May 28th. I’m actually not even close. I tell you this not because I have given up, but only because I feel it is my duty to inform you so that you have ample time to find a well qualified ring boy to replace me. We both know that ring boy is a sacred position and shouldn’t be rashly chosen.
I’m sorry for any pain this may cause the both of you. Obviously my stand in will be no where near my caliber, but then again you don’t want a chubby 19 year old with a fanny pack on walking down the aisle. I want you to know that I will continue to work hard in hopes of defying science, physics, and perhaps even God by acquiring a six pack by the day of your wedding. If not, I hope I’m still invited. I love you both very much.
Your (still pretty fat) Cousin,
i apologize to all of you. i hope we can still be friends.
HEY! so tonight triathlon class was pretty intense. ran 4 miles in intervals (avg 2:15 a lap) and swam 700 meters (too tired to look at time). gah swimming is tough, but it’s getting easier… actually not even a little bit. BUT IT WILL! long distance running will also get easier as my great friend miguel vega bought me a fuel belt! hwat!
so i told you guys i would be under 190 by the end of february. well im at 195 so i’m gonna have to do some serious cutting this next week to not let you guys down!
christimystery asked: I PROUD of YOU! :D you're going to run the world someday. OH! and I love you! ;) byeee
iheartxbox asked: I heard somebody motivated you to continue updating your tumblr can you confirm this?
yeahh a pretty good friend of mine. we go on friendship runs and watch natalie portman movies and stuff. he goes by miguel vega. he’s a pretty cool guy and doesn’t afraid of anything.
kiiitkaaat-deactivated20120718 asked: i love your blog ashkon! i like how you try to lose weight but you fail! thats honestly the story of my life.
but you should try YOGA!!!! there is a really bomb class at 24 in industry/walnut on friday mornings at 930. it's hell- i never expected to sweat so much and i'm actually sore the next day, but it's awesome! a lot of guys in their 20s take it too so it's not just a room full of middle aged asian women.
hahah i will fail no more! yoga is pretty intense though so i will check it out. unfortunately i would prefer a room full of middle aged asian women. mmm.
