Sorry for the recent silence.
I’ve hit a rough patch, and haven’t felt like doing much writing outside of abusing Twitter and Facebook.
The mother of one of my childhood friends was killed in a car accident on Easter Sunday, and I just found out this morning. I don’t know what else to say about that.
The weather last night and today have combined with the stupidity that is me wearing ExerSteps all day on Tuesday, and I feel like hammered ass right now. ExerSteps are not for the faint of heart – they force you to take complete steps, or else you WILL fall down. I made the mistake of wearing them and then trekking across campus to a friend’s apartment in the humidity. My calves are pissed.
JB and I went to St. Louis late last week to visit with family and deliver Tina (the leopard gecko) to my mom. I saw my aunt for a bit, and she gave me a pair of blue suede MBT shoes. They really are as comfortable as they claim. The ExerSteps seem to be devoted to toning your calves and thighs through pure, willful force. The MBTs have a squishier heel, so your footsteps aren’t as dramatic. They do actually help relieve pressure on my knees and hips while walking around, so that’s good.
I met up with Former Mean Girl Seeks Same last night at Pizza Hut, and we shot the bull for a while while it stormed (and stormed…and stormed…and stormed). I had a lot of fun, and am glad to have found someone so close to hang out with.
My job search for after graduation has begun in earnest. There is a shocking (okay, maybe not so shocking) lack of employment opportunities for someone with my degree and experience, at least within close driving distance. I’m hoping to find SOMEthing before I graduate. I mean, paying off my student loans would be nice. Also…being able to eat and stuff is a nice bonus.
I pretty much don’t have anything else to say right now, so I’ll talk to you guys again when I do.
