well anyway. hi.
it's been forever since i've written anything of substance in here.
time for a general life update.
The other day (when I started my new job) i read back through all of my entries I'd ever made in LJ. it was informative. I like this journaling thing. so you'll all just have to suck it up and deal with my occasional rambling updates.
life right now is going. ok. I'm settling into this whole job thing, and grasping the concept that I'm not going to have a spring break. Making friends at work, hating some people at work, about the norm it seems.
feeling a bit like a fat slob. I'm not doing anything active for the first time in my life, and it sucks. I'm heavier than I've ever been as well, and it's really not making me happy. I was ok with it until the girl started talking about joining a gym recently, and all of a sudden I got really self conscious and weird, which I've never really been to any extent in the past.
Now it's not the girl's fault in the least, but it's just what inspired it.
so I'm going to try to start running again. playing frisbee once a week is fun and all, but it's not going to keep me in shape. now that I'm not in school anymore, i don't have practice to keep me in shape, so I need to do it on me own. whee.
wish me luck.
still in debt. ugh. car is doing ok, but getting windows replaced sucks. Still needs to be inspected, and I really need to change the oil. it's been so freakin cold out that I just can't bring myself to do it. heh.
bought swanky new pants the other day, I feel more yuppie in them, so I fit into the corporate environment better.
I don't think of them as conforming pants, more like camoflauge pants.
*blends in to better observe the natives*
and that's about it for now.
Going to go drink lots of water to try to ward off headaches.
music: office idiots rambling about politics they don't understand
i'm actually pretty sure you're not at your heaviest, i think that came the winter of senior year because you hadn't been moving at all for ages what with appendix and stress and beginnings of thesis.
you might be holding the weight differently now (sliding in with the bizarre "men who have bellies that hang over their belt" shape instead of the buddha bellies of yesteryears) though. that i will concur.
let's plan on running together when the streets get less slippery? maybe in the mornings? if we're both getting up and being active, it'll be easier.
I'm at the largest number I've ever seen while standing on a scale, how's that?
running good, will discus further in person.
Ah the excitement of having a job where one gains weight because they are not as active as they were before. I, unfortunately, feel your pain here. However, then after a real job, I was doing college full-time at night and that really was the end of my thinness. Only had time for work and school and homework. Finally finished school and have been trying to get back into an exercise program, but its going slowly. Trying to find something I like and can stick with. Hopefully the horse will be ready to come home soon and then I can ride him regularly and that will be good for me. =)
Yay for you working towards running again!
