i really wish i could BOTTLE the way i felt today. it was great. here is some of the stuff i did:
- cleaned litterbox including taking everything off the floor of the bathroom and vacuuming and swiffering it
- vacuumed and swiffered kitchen floor
- went for a jog
- called my student loan people
- installed checkbook software on my palm
- 6 loads of laundry
- put the orange cover back on my couch (truth be told, i mostly watched jack put the cover on my couch)
- took out trash
well, okay that doesn't look like much, but it's ALOT in my life. i have been putting off the loan things, and the jogging??? whoah! i never do that. i should also admit that most of my jog was spent walking, but i still felt winded and worked out afterwards. now, i need to do it every day. hell, if i could just feel the way i did today twice a week i would be... let's see... i'd say about 410 times more productive in a year. that's staggering. if this is hat "manic" feels like, please let me have more of it. also, i'd like to say, swiffer is just a sham - it's got nothing on mopping or getting down on your hands and knees and cleaning the floor.
on my jog, i went ahead and canvassed the apartment complex - i never realized how huge it is. i went all over it, hich was nice because it's kind of hilly. i guess if we don't end up there, which is a good chance i suppose, i'll miss it. although i will say that there are lots of creepy redneck types back in the back. i couldn't tell if the gaggle of guys staring at me were being crude or just nice when they said hello, and stared at me alot. other things of note: there is a red sign on one of the buildings that looks approximately like this:
does anyone know what that means???
the medicine i'm on, by the way, is actually living up to one of its side-effects warnings. i read online that this medicine causes a metallic taste in your mouth, and i can't say i have EVER had such a metallic taste in my mouth. even when i was into sucking on pliers. okay, i was never into sucking on pliers. but it's that metallic. BLEAH.
i was having this discussion with jack about how if i could have been a librarian, i'd grow my hair out long and wear it in a bun so that when i wanted to get freaky i could let my hair loose and unbutton the top button of my shirt and tear my glasses off. then i was thinking, how many times is this theme represented in 80s videos and movies? i could think of Adam Ant (goody two shoes), Van Halen (hot for teacher, i think it was in there), and Britney Fox (girls school). but i just know there's more. what are they?
