Hello. I still exist.
It goes without saying at this point that I apparently suck at updating. I miss writing. I need to do more of it.

I have had the interesting experince this week of thinking "so this is what normal people feel like!!"

I, quite honestly, feel like I'm finally awake after sleeping for 3 months or more. Maybe a lot more. I dunno who hit the reset button in my system, but I am grateful. The flipped switch feeling is more than a little unnerving, but I'll take what I can get, I guess?

This summer so far has been very different. My apartment is kept at about 75-76 degrees, 85 degree weather does not bother me... and it was probably about 92-94 when I walked to the metro station tonight and I didn't break out into much of a sweat. Very warm, yes, but not unbearable.

Last summer, and all summers before that, anything 80 or above was way too hot. My living and working spaces didn't need to be any warmer than 72. My roommates kept the place pretty frigid all summer, but other than pretty cold feet, I never thought twice about it.

How things change.

Back to my reset button - I didn't realize how a constant lack of energy like, sucks the life out of things. That sounds silly, but... didn't realize how much I wasn't doing until I started doing it again. Yeah.

I don't have much else to say except that I hope it lasts. Getting through my workday without feeling like death. Working on getting the rest of the boxes I still have chillin from when I moved months ago unpacked. Trying to keep my place more cleaned up than I usually manage to. I have plants out on the balcony I'm trying very hard not to kill. I finally got my piano keyboard unpacked tonight. Life is good.

Things that I have learned recently, include but are not limited to:

1. Bad things happen when you set a mostly empty milkshake on the roof of your car to get something out of the back seat, and the wind blows.

2. Dishwashers can and will attempt to flood your kitchen.

3. If you can't catch the mouse in your current apartment, move, and catch a different one there!

4. Much of your life is dictated by where you define the role various emotions play in it.

5. Sometimes it makes more sense to throw yourself under the bus, rather than have someone else throw you under the bus.

6. It is entirely possible to trip over a bird when it's too stupid to figure out you're walking right toward it.

7. Some motorcycle riders think it's a cool idea to try to sideswipe your car going over 100 miles an hour. What they fail to realize is that A, I may have a heart attack, and B, they may lose their head in the process. Literally. Next time bad things could happen.

8. Warm temperatures and a nice breeze - just about the best combination of things ever.

9. This too shall pass.

10. Hockey might actually be kind of interesting. Kind of like baseball is kind of interesting.

11. It's ok to have no idea what's going on.

12. Sleep before 2 AM is a smart idea.
