Here I am, nibbling at the remains of my chicken Caesar salad from the diner up the street and sipping some delicious coffee waiting for my finger tips to regain feeling after a walk with the pup and I feel pretty content for the moment. I had to be to work at 6am this morning so that I could leave at 2:30pm to haul up to the school to conduct an interview with an English professor I had last term for my paper for this term. “Bri-Con” (as he is known to the English majors) is a pretty cool guy. First off, he hung around for me to get there since I had to work, then, knowing that I am an English major and not on the newspaper staff, he helped me out a lot with the interview. I had maybe six measly questions, and he gave me two anecdotes to help fill in the gaps. I am really excited about the paper now and I still have three more interviews to do now. It’s funny how you can sometimes be pleasantly surprised when you are out of your element.also decided that since I was already going to be at the school this afternoon, I decided to pack a bag and head over to the rec center after the interview. Normally I am a little chicken to go to places like that, especially without the aid of an mp3 player (I can be an anti-social asshole sometimes) but I put down on my resolutions that I wanted to lose those last 12 pounds and I want to. I also have said that I want to run again and there is no way my uncoordinated ass is running on the non-salted sidewalks of Royal Oak so, rec center it is. Today I managed a half-hour on the elliptical trainer, and a half-hour on the treadmill (speed walking) and I think I am going to try running on the track next time I go.
Here is a coat that my parents got me for Christmas and I love it to death! It’s plaid and I feel like with the right hat, I can somehow look like a plaid Carmen Sandiego. I also got this purple plaid dress from Lauren for my birthday way back in October and I wore it a few times but never managed to take a picture, but here it is in all it’s purple-plaid glory!
