Tom and Julie arrived right on time to my apartment! They were the nicest people!
BHW and I had dinner all ready to go and we all ate and talked and Tom actually knew
BHW's brothers from high schoo! Small world! After we ate and they showered, we headed
out for a night on the town. After riding 50 miles I didn't know if they'd be up for a long
night out but they were all for it! We tramped around downtown at had some beers at
the Herot and then headed to Savages Ale House with a couple friends of mine.
My friend just so happened to be turning 21 at midnight so we met her in the village and
had some drinks with her. We left around 1AM, we were all exhausted!
Tom and Julie just left a little bit ago and I was sad to see them go, we had such a blast together!
I don't think any other couch surfers will compare to those two awesome cats!
The book says I'm on page 26, but since I had to rent the large print version from
the Muncie library, I'm probably only 3 pages in, and I'm already bawling my eyes out.
The gloomy weather doesn't help and neither does the fact that I just went into work, checked my email, and found out that my boss had sent me a message 20 minutes earlier saying not to come. I sighed, clocked out, and quietly left the office before she even saw me. Needless to say I skipped most of my classes today, it's been a rough one.
On Amazon you can buy this book used for $1.12 but I'm not really sure how that could
possibly be true. The book has already changed my life, and like I said, I'm only a few pages in.
I can't really say much about the book due to the little I've read but I can say
that it is a must read. A book that you have to go out and buy tonight, or right
now if you trust me enough. Don't go and try to rent it from the Muncie library either,
I've already got their copy, although, I'll probably finish this baby tonight.
Well, I better wrap this up because the book is sitting right next to my computer and I feel a strange pang of guilt for not having it in my hands
Tuesdays With Morrie by Mitch Albom
My plate is completely full.
I don't mean full like 'yeah, I'm just busy all the time and oh but I still hang out
with my friends at night and I go shopping and blah blah blah.'
No. This is the kind of busy where I'm lucky if I get to eat a meal before
10PM. If I'm not at school, I'm at work, and if I'm not at either of those places,
I'm at practice, and when I'm home from practice, I'm doing homework.
It's not like I thought this was going to be easy, I knew that is was going to be
really hard, but I wasn't prepared for this.
I can manage my time, no problem, the thing is, I don't have any time
to manage. I go straight from one thing to the next without a moment inbetween.
I also have this issue with stress. It's like an annoying gnat that is always flying
right above your head but you can never seem to swat it away because it's just always there.
Yeah, that about sums it up.
I'm really trying to keep it all under control but I can slowly feel it all piling up.
I went to church this Sunday at home and our pastor was talking about just 'sweeping things under the rug'. He brought a good point up that after a while the rug starts getting pretty
full of dirt and junk and it starts to get pretty hard to sweep anything else underneath.
I try to make time for myself but lots of other things seem to be taking priority. Aside from school, work, and practice, I've got a relationship to work on and friendships to keep, it's just a lot for one little girl. :) I'm not comlpaining, just hoping I can make it through my senior year
without having some sort of nervous breakdown. Now THAT would be no good.
Man, it really feels good to let this all out. I need to start blogging more.
Now you know I have <-> this much time to myself so I'm not going to make any promises. :)
On a much lighter note: I'M HOSTING MY FIRST COUCHSURFERS THIS SATURDAY!
If you can't tell, I'm pretty dang excited. They aren't from some far away land but who cares,
It's going to be awesome, if I don't bore them to death. I'm hosting a married couple from
Richmond, IN, about 45 miles away, yes, you heard me right. It's very close to Muncie,
BUT the kicker is, they're riding their bicycles here! So, their plan is to ride to Muncie,
eat, rest up, and ride on back the next day! I'm pretty jealous of their little trek, Brian and
I have wanted to take the trail from Muncie to Richmond for so long! Maybe they'll give us the little kick that we need to jump into gear.
Oh, I'm also the new co-captain for the Ball State Women's Ultimate frisbee team. :)
We have 30 girls on the email list with about 12-20 girls making it out to practice each day.
They're learning the ropes and really catching on to the strategy of ultimate. I'm so proud of them all! I still get a little nervous about talking in front of them, I don't know EVERYTHING about ultimate so I feel a little under qualified. But, I'm making it work along with the
other captain, ELS, and we're having fun, which is the most important thing anyways.
I'll be sure and update after my couch surfers leave, maybe even before then with another question of the day! Thanks for checking in. :)
To all my Faithful Readers:
Here is a small peek inside my brain. Enjoy.
