I submitted [what I hope is] my final university assignment last night. I celebrated by walking over to Tom’s and dropping my iPhone.
Mike also sent me a pair of shoes from the Americas. So it was a pretty good day.
This morning I caught the tram to work, which includes a one hour walk the other side of the tram. So I started reading In Defense of Animals, which I’ve had sitting next to my couch for about 4 months (at least). I haven’t read a book out of interest in a really long time.
My friend Josh passed away in May. Today is his birthday. I love Facebook, but I find it really strange that it tells me it’s Josh’s birthday and that then I feel bad if I don’t write on his wall like everyone else.
So because it’s his birthday, I’ll recall the story that I always think of when I think of Josh.
We were in German class in the portable near the cafeteria. Josh was sitting in front of me (probably with Michael) actually…he may’ve been sitting next to me. Anywho, he was telling about this thing where if you can touch both your elbows together behind your back it means you’re smart or something. So I did it. Turns out it’s just a lame ploy for me to stick my tits out. Josh just laughed.
Good story 🙂
There’s something about a Large Print book that just makes me think “the universe is telling you you’re getting old”. I’m gonna try and spin it to more of a “the universe is trying to help you by reducing eye strain”…WIN!
I’ve had a post-it with the word “bobulate” written on it stuck to my monitor for about 6 months. I don’t know what it was supposed to serve as a reminder for/of. I do like the word though.
I was reading a textbook last night about project management from a human resources perspective. It listed the attributes of a team member which would benefit a project and those which would be detrimental. About half of those non-beneficial attributes are exhibited within my project “team” on a daily basis.

This morning I cried because my new orthotics gave me blisters. I am a shadow of my former self.
