Went to a psytrance party last night at Niaspace, which went straight through the night (11pm to 7am). My endurance is improving; I could dance for longer stretches than I expected myself to be able to, especially given the energy I often throw into my dancing. Additionally, though I still suck at dancing in the technical sense, a couple of people commented on how consistently energetic I was, which they found inspiring in some way.

In fact, at a couple of times during the night, I was pushing myself past exhaustion, just as a personal challenge, stretching my own expected boundaries. My mantra for the night was one of my favorite quotes from Gattaca.

You want to know how I did it?
This is how I did it, Anton:
I never saved anything for the swim back.

I even had ambitions of going to Bodychoir the next morning at 10, but un(?)fortunately I crashed at around 9.

Unfortunately, a common mistake I've begun to make since going vegan happened here like it did at Flipside: I didn't eat enough before a long stretch of physical exertion. I did have enough forethought to bring some fruit with me, but the proper strategy would have been to stop for breakfast at around 2 or 3am, or eat much more heavily during the preceding afternoon. It feels like my appetite is still 'miscalibrated' to vegetarian eating patterns, which just don't work as well now.
