Words exchanged

Filed under: Uncategorized — megs @ 9:59 am

I’ve started working out again in the mornings.  If I get to the park early enough, I’ll see an old man who runs on the path in the opposite direction from me.  He’s got a yellow hat, and gray sweatshirt, and a great big bushy beard.  Sometimes he runs by himself, but sometimes he walks and talks with other people.  And whenever we pass each other, he’ll give me a big grin, or a thumbs up, or, if we’re close enough, a high five.  It always make me smile.  We’ve never said two words to each other, but that little touch of human kindness makes the next few steps easier to run.

After I arrived at the park this morning, I stood around fiddling with my various running gadgets to get my music started.   A man walked up to me, and said, “Yo.”  He held up his hand up for a high five.  He had a yellow hat and a gray sweatshirt, and I didn’t know him from Adam.  After a moment, my jaw dropped.  “You shaved!” I blurted out as I slapped his hand. He smiled and tapped his watch. “You’re late.”  And with that, we were off on our separate rounds.

New Hobby, new blog

Filed under: Uncategorized — megs @ 11:02 pm

I made a blog for my new weird hobby – leathercrafting.  The only thing i can promise is that it will be infrequently updated once Spring term starts.

Second Teir New Year’s Resolutions

Filed under: Uncategorized — megs @ 4:50 pm

My previously posted resolutions are big things that I will be working my hardest to accomplish this year.  But these are some other goals which, if I were able to complete them, would round out the year nicely.

  • Learn leathercrafting
  • Learn more than one chord on the guitar
  • Master some new crockpot recipes
  • Zelda Ocarina-thon
  • Go camping

Reverse the order on those first two resolutions.

Know how I was going to take the Bar in February?  That’s not going to happen.  What’s going to happen is I’m going to finish up my degree this spring, because if I don’t, they won’t give me my degree.  Ever.  I tried asking for a leave of absence to take the Bar, and then coming back in the summer or fall, but they said no.

So.  Take some classes.  Get my sheepskin.  Conquer the Bar.   The same plan than I had for the year, just a different order of operations.
