Have you ever changed your lifestyle in a big way?

Kathy Mueller: My husband quit the team.

Jeff Chipian: I finally stopped playing video games and started going on dates with actual women. Aw, who am I kidding, I haven’t had a date in years! But I have beaten Super Mario on Super Nintendo more than 20 times.

Kolbie Stonehocker: The thought of earthquakes kept me awake and anxious at night, until I realized the only thing I could do about such a disaster is to be as prepared as possible. So I’ve started building a 72-hour kit and learning about emergency preparedness, when before, I would’ve just done absolutely nothing and hoped for the best.

Rachel Piper: I stopped eating at my all-time-favorite restaurant after I bit into what I’m pretty sure was a crunchy cockroach torso. This might not sound like a big change, but it is: I often used to think daily about eating at this particular restaurant, and life without it has been somewhat bleak.

Eric S. Peterson: When I started at this fine paper and was still trying to figure everything out, I was also finishing an honor’s thesis so I could graduate from the U. I got to the point where I was sitting in front of a computer 14 hours a day and really felt like I needed to hit something. I started doing kung fu and have never felt healthier or deadlier.

Susan Kruithof: Yes, about eight years ago I used to be super healthy, ate right, exercised every day—basically, took good care of myself. Since then, I have stopped working out, smoke half a pack of cigarettes a day and partake of the alcohol almost every day. I couldn’t be happier. I just got tired of trying so hard.

Derek Carlisle: I found myself wearing red and black lumberjacks every day with the hat to match. I think it had to do with pumpin’ too much Biggie Smalls.
