Post number 101!!!
So after being depressed every time I thought about running for the past 2 days, I got the courage to go on a run today. It’s pretty clear to me that I won’t ever quit running while I’m in college. My run today was very good. I started off going a pretty solid pace listening to my ipod. I was just thinking the whole run about the race and started getting really pissed off because I felt so good on this run but so shitty on Friday. I just started running really fast. I turned around in 20:53 and I think I was probably going 6:30-6:45 pace. On the way back I just kept going faster. I was literally hitting 6 minute miles feeling amazing on the way back. I got back in 19:20ish for probably a little under 3.2 miles or so. I finished feeling awesome but was just so pissed off at the same time. Maybe it’s because now that I don’t have anything to train for or worry about, I can run fast. I’m definitely going to do a time trail, either a mile or a 2 mile. I think I can run really fast, then again I thought I could run a fast 5k and look what happened. Now that the season is over I think I’m going to write a full running post just for shits and giggles.
Well, last night was pretty fun. It started early and ended late. I didn’t black out and went on a couple of adventures. Nothing too crazy really happened but it was just a fun night. I’ll leave it at that.
So for the past year or so I’ve been trying to do everyday things with my left hand. Just normal things that you don’t really think about. I started brushing my teeth with my left hand a couple months ago and I’m finally to the point where I feel confident that my teeth are clean enough with only using my left hand. Honestly, it’s really weird how challenging some things become when you can’t use your dominate hand. Next time you take a dump, trying wiping with your other hand and see how it goes.
I had dinner tonight at my teachers house. It was me, 8 other students from my class, her, and her husband. I think this is the difference between big schools and little schools. Stuff like this is possible to do at a small school. We showed up a little after 5, talked for a bit, ate dinner talked for about 2 hours, then left. It’s cool to see them as actual people and not just your teacher. It’s a lot like me playing basketball with the teachers. You’re not just their student, you can actually talk to them and do things with them as people and develop a relationship with them outside of the classroom. It sounds gay but it’s actually pretty cool.
Last thing, 2 music shout outs. 1, the song Open Road by Slightly Stoopid is really good. 2, the 2nd guitar solo in Sultans of Swing by Dire Straits may be one of my favorite of all time. That’s all
