Library Contrary

I went to the library on campus the other day to check out a book. I didn’t know for sure that they would have it, but I had high hopes: the campus has two libraries and the book I was looking for seemed like the kind of thing that would be useful to students of higher learning. 582 more words

I just had one of those five hour energy shots.

It’s a Monday evening and I have class until ten so it seemed like a good idea to have a little pick-me-up. 436 more words

First gym run

I went to the gym today for the first time in a very long time, and wore my Anxiety UK t-shirt. I almost had a panic attack trying to get into the gym, as they have stupid pin activated pods you need to pass through, and even when I got through I couldn’t find the changing rooms for a while. 71 more words

Calling Home

Yesterday I called home.

JK Simmons told me to, so I did it.

Gentle Derailment

The early part of the week was like a very slow derailment of a large piece of heavy equipment. I’m not sure that I would call it a “train wreck” because there was no crashing nor burning nor wholesale O-The-Humanity style destruction that the word “train wreck” would conjure up, but things did start to get off track. 557 more words
