Yesterday was pretty mellow. Cmonkey, Luke and I woke up pretty late, ate lunch and then went for a pretty strenuous hike up Ponpon Yama (thump-thump mountain) in northern Takatsuki; it's the highest place in Takatsuki. We charged it pretty hard, only taking short breaks to take photos, and got up there in only a few hours. It felt good to get out and breath some fresh air. Today has been fairly unproductive, but I felt that it was necessary, as my two-day bender from a few days back has left me feeling a little off of my game. It's not all bad though, sometimes it's good to kick back and recharge the batteries!
