After my midterm today, I’m going to read Wolverine: Old Man Logan. Eddie, look! I’m reading a comic book!
I also learned how to play zombicide like last week and a version of Dungeons and Dragons.
So. Much. Fun.
Knitting a blanket.
My biggest problem when working on a group assignment is choosing the correct option of the following two:
1. Do my part and the parts that I don’t like that my group members did because they’re wrong. No discussion.
2. Discussing with the group member(s) why I think they’re wrong and making them redo their parts (if necessary), and just doing my part.
I always choose 1 like an idiot.
But I did go to trivia night at a local bar last night with a neighbor and some classmates and their friends. It was fine. I didn’t die. I had a hard cider, which I spent 30 minutes wondering how to purchase. I mean it when I say that I don’t get out much.
My car did not take the outing well, however. It wasn’t the outing’s fault. My car was probably going to have this problem the next time I went to work or something. So,my door is now only not in two separate pieces because the wiring is still connecting them. It just means that I have to get in/out my car through the passenger door. No biggie. Except it’s one more reason I really need to get a new car. Definitely a big deal.
The oh-no-you-like-and-watch-Star-Trek look my coworkers gave me today somehow did not come with a comment about me really being a crazy cat lady. How did they miss the part where I was telling them about knitting a blanket in the freaking summer? Do cool people fail to hear any further dorky statements after a threshold is reached?
I’m clearly too accustomed to anticipating my family’s teasing.

That is amusing.
Attempting cold brew coffee.
This summer I’m taking two classes (dynamic modeling and linear algebra) and I just started reading “Thinking in Systems”, which I’ve owned for years. I’m feeling very behind in my education, but I’m thrilled to be catching up.
I filled a plastic box lid with water so that I can have my feet in cold water while I study. This was a good idea, I think.
I feel like a boss when I survive walking all over campus in heels with a somewhat heavy backpack. I even ran late to my bus yesterday without tripping!
Of course I remembered it would have been my mom’s birthday today. Remembering the dead and showing respect is very important to me, but I prefer to be more private about it. It’s the living who I wish people knew I was incredibly grateful for. All I really want anyone on facebook or even here on tumblr to know is that I’m grateful for my family and that they go underappreciated for all they’ve done. They deserve so much more lveo and blessings than they get. They have influenced me more positively than anyone else and have done more for me than I could ever thank them for. Sometimes I can and I don’t and that’s not good. Sometimes I keep the bad things to myself and that’s not good either because any healthy relationship needs honesty and communication. But that’s how it is and I’m taking my time getting to confronting the good and the bad. The point is I’m grateful for my family and I think that’s more important for me to share than to talk about how much I miss those I’ve lost in my life. Clearly still not super into sharing it or I’d post this on facebook, but again I’m getting there.
