My Three Days at Vipassana

On Tynan

I first heard about Vipassana from Rivers Cuomo, the lead singer for Weezer. He was explaining that despite being a rock star, he was celibate because of Vipassana. Powerful stuff, I guess. He raved about the benefits of it, although I don't remember exactly what he said anymore. It stuck in my mind, and over the years I thought about signing up, but something always seemed to be in the way of me leaving society for ten days to learn how to meditate.

The idea is simple and extreme, both of which appealed to me. You go to a meditation center in the middle of nowhere, agree to be silent and without any contact with the other world for ten days. Then, on a donation only basis, they teach you how to meditate, which you do for ten hours each day.

Finally, after knowing about it for five years, I signed up and went to a course. No notepads were allowed in, so this is reconstructed pretty faithfully from memory.

Ok this challenge thing is really repetitive. Every one so far has been something about a favorite or lest favorite sci-fi or fantasy thing... So Im gonna skip to day 10

Day 10 - Favorite anime

Honestly... Im just now getting into anime... well unless you count Code Lyoko... I've seen every episode of that at least 10 times XD But recently I've started watching Fairy Tail!! I love it!! Ive also tried watching Soul Eater... but that was a bit too much for me lol I just couldn't sit through it. I mean it wasn't even scary It was just weird! But I also like Dragon Ball Z a bit!!

So Im obviously an anime noob... If you have any suggestions for me Id love to watch them!! I really like the style of anime, I just don't have time to watch any of it. But I think im gonna start watching Bleach and Attack on Titan soon!!
