First thing’s first.
T-shirts are available. You can pick between Gildan or American Apparel, and there’s an option for a white t-shirt with a black design. I can also make a women’s tee if there is a demand for them (I don’t suspect that there is).
I would like to point out that the official MopeilityWOD “why am i alive” t-shirt color is egg plant, which is featured in the preview image. You can pick your own colors though.
Also, how do you guys feel about this design:

What does it mean if you feel like everyone’s staring at you when you walk into a crowded place? I realize this thought is completely irrational, but the feeling is still there. I’ve noticed this experience walking into the grocery store and the gym, since these are the only places I really go to anymore. But looking back on previous episodes – I’ve mentioned several times that I hate going to Vietnamese restaurants because it seems as though everyone stops what they’re doing to fix their gaze on you. Have I actually felt this at all restaurants? Am I developing legit symptoms of social anxiety disorder? Many of you may have noticed that I don’t know what to do with my hands, especially in a place where there are a lot of people. Is this real? Does this explain why I hate going to clubs and bars? Why I’ve never gone to a concert and have no interest in going? I’ve even developed an extreme unwillingness to go to meets. I legit didn’t want to go to Nationals this year.
I was driving with Chris to Authentic Strength and filled with dread at the thought of talking to Nate, the guy who owns the place. I was sure that he wouldn’t want me training there because of the personality I’ve cultivated from 70s big, and more recently, this blog.
At the gym, I left Chris’s side to go pee. On the way there, a guy was leaving the hallway leading to the restroom. About twenty paces away I began to frantically consider my options – do I step to the left to pass by him, or to the right? I hesitated at least five steps before deciding. We made eye contact for too long and I panicked – do I look away? Do I acknowledge our eye contact and say hello? I managed a meek nod and a “hi.” He looked at me weird – or did I only think he looked at me weird – and said hello back. When I was done in the restroom I came out and began to warm up. It felt like he was staring at me as I took my warm-ups in the snatch.
Nate stopped by to speak with me as we had finished the workout. Separated from Chris, I was helpless as I struggled my utmost to appear to be normal. What do I talk about? Lifing. Yeah. That’s a safe bet.
“So do you plan on doing a powerlifting meet again any time soon?”
“OH- well I uh – the-the-the-the THE American Open’s my – “
Boy I really fucked that one up.
What the fuck am I supposed to do with my hands? Does he notice my awkward stance right now? Fuck, how long have I been standing like this? I don’t know what my face looks like right now. Where are my eyes supposed to look, there’s no way I’m supposed to maintain eye contact this whole time.

Thanks for the bbq tip and warning about the soup.
Don’t get me wrong. I fucking love some of the soups and stews. But I can see why someone not raised on the food would hate it. If you want some kind of meat-based stew, try sul-rung tang or gal-bi tang. Gom tang is also good but you are less likely to find a place that makes this. I am actually a big fan of daengjang jjiggae, which is a soybean-paste soup that is pretty good, except it probably has a total of 10g protein – from tofu. I also like yukkae jang which has probably 3-6oz of shredded beef depending on where you go and is pretty spicy. Taste also varies quite a bit, I like it with a lot of garlic and green onion.
On average, how many feels do you feel in a day?
Just one – I want to quit everything.
This post was no befitted for an officer. We expect more of you at this rank bront. Yeah that’s right I called you bront on purpose because guess what the ‘o’ is no where near the e on a keyboard so it’s obviously not a typo, bront. Whatcha gonna doaboutit bront? Huh?
I can only think of not letting you buy a t-shirt.
Thought about this today, wondered how pathetic this makes me.
Its one thing to be so beta you have no chance with any woman ever but in my case lifting seems to attract people talking to me, whether its guys asking what protein I take or girls teasing me with some bullshit or another. Anyway long story short, I’ve turned down sex because I have a squat session planned for the next day.
This isn’t me bragging that I get so much sex I can turn it down, this is me admitting I’m so turned off by social situations and human contact that I find solace in my desire to use my loins to squat rather than to have my way with some semi-attractive 20something.
You don’t need help. Just keep squatting. Sounds like you’re doing fine. If MopeilityWOD had merit badges, you’d have earned the one that rewards actively avoiding human interaction.
