yesterday i was all moody blues. i woke up today feeling chipper. optimistic, even. don’t get me wrong, i appreciate the improvement. but man, do i wish it was consistent.
i went to a get together last night, in the interest of staying the course in being social. it was a small group, different than the one i had been running with the past few times i went out. it didn’t hurt that i have a teensy weensie crush on one of them. okay, two of them, but the female is in a relationship so she’s off limits (have i finally learned that lesson?).
i limited myself to two beers, and it didn’t hurt that both of them were HORRIBLE so i wasn’t inclined to have more. i had no idea it was possible to fuck up an IPA. it was like drinking acid, forreals. i ducked outside to the street so i could dump it out, while still appearing gracious for the drink.
after about an hour and a half, i was painfully bored. it’s not that [all of] the people were boring. graduate students can just be so…awkward at times. myself included.
mind you, this is like…9pm so people went kind of bug-eyed when i said i was going home. so this is what it feels like to be a square.
i arrived home to happy pups, a few rounds of draw something, and some L&O. midway through an episode, i was yearning to play infamous and made a spontaneous decision to buy it on the PSN…around midnight. while it downloaded, i checked out a show my friend recommended called Firefly. although anything Buffy-related reminds me of XBF, this Joss Whedon show was distant enough that i didn’t feel sad when i watched it. in fact, it was really fucking good. by 1:30a, infamous was still downloading, so i called it a night.
this morning, i got up and went to breakfast with another friend. the sky is blue, the clouds are parting, and there is a pleasant wind today. just my kind of weather. i came home, flipped on firefly, and cleaned my house, washed dishes, did laundry. now i’m sitting down to grade, but i think i might sneak a little infamous in first.
let’s hope this pattern holds.
