"There is a thing that sometimes happens in rowing that is hard to achieve and hard to define. Many crews, even winning crews, never really find it. Others find it but can’t sustain it. It’s called “swing”. It only happens when all eight oarsmen are rowing in such perfect unison that no single action by any one is out of synch with those of all the others. It’s not just that the oars enter and leave the water at precisely the same instant. Sixteen arms must begin to pull, sixteen knees must being to fold and unfold, eight bodies must being to slide forward and backward, eight backs must bend and straighten all at one. Each minute action - each subtle turning of wrists - must be mirrored exactly by each oarsman, from one end of the boat to the other. Only then will the boat continue to run, unchecked, fluidly and gracefully between pulls of the oars. Only then will it feel as if the boat is a part of each of them, moving as if on its own. Only then does pain entirely give way to exultation. Rowing then becomes a kind of perfect language. Poetry, that’s what a good swing feels like."

"Go to a coffee shop. Sit by the bar with the glass windows and look out. Look at all the people running to catch a train. All the girls with one too many shopping bags. All the couples too in love to care. Then you’ll see it - a bit of yourself in everyone. And somehow, sitting alone in a coffee shop had never felt so good."

Different knifes and their uses.
THIS SHIT IS IMPORTANT! FOR THE LOVE OF FUCK STOP USING SERRATED KNIVES TO CUT VEGGIES IT’S WRONG!
AND STOP CHOPPING WITH CARVING KNIVES OR ANY OTHER GRATON KNIVES.
ALSO, YOU ONLY USE THE STEEL TO TAKE BURS OFF NOT SHARPEN.
