In conjunction with my recent post, I’ve got some lists to create. I’m going to use this as an excuse to create a new category I’ve wanted to for a while, called 5ives. The idea is taken from Merlin Mann’s 5ives.com site. The idea is simple, ask a question, give 5 answers.

So, here is the first question. What are five things I know I like to do right now. I’m going to be vague in answering right now, I figure I can then use the answers for more questions later.

  1. Reading books, especially on cognitive-behavorial therapy.
  2. Working on computers.
  3. Spending time with my girlfriend Crista.
  4. Engaging in divergent thinking.
  5. Improving my ability to relax to break obsessional thinking patterns and decrease my anxiety level.
