Sick

I think I might be sick. I feel fine, but today when I was on my school's website, and I saw the "Calender" button and decided to click on it. I've never wanted to do that before, but for whatever reason today, I did...And what's more shocking is that I started trying to figure out what events I could attend. Like, on Mondays, if I go straight from work to school (Instead of stopping by my house for cheap food), I can catch the end of the woman's tennis match; and if I run from my institute class, I can catch a show at the theatre. I'd be about half an hour late, but as long as it's not a play, I should be fine--they usually save the best for last, right? Next month there is a Jazz trio. A jazz trio?!? Who am I? I don't go to jazz concerts. At least I didn't...maybe I do now....I mean, there is a jazz cafe where they have an open mic night in the neighboring town, and I've been invited to go and watch a friend* play, but I never felt the desire...I wonder if I really want to go to the jazz concert, or if I'm just feeling some need to associate with the college crowd...Maybe it's some subconscious desire to have positive feelings associated with my school, so I want to participate in these extra curricular activities. That would be understandable, since I currently have only negative thoughts (We haven't even had spring break yet, and I'm already counting the days till summer.). I'd think I would want to avoid it as much as possible, but apparently that's not the case. I must admit, I'm glad there is something motivating me to go to school. Maybe I will make it through not only this program but also the next.
Whatever it is, any one interested in joining me at some college campus events? There are some interesting events coming up.

*By "friend" I mean, "boy at a coffee shop that keeps talking to me." And by "talking to me" I mean "trying to hit on me." ...And by "trying" I mean "failing"...so maybe it wasn't so much the jazz that I didn't want to experience...

Thanks for the footnote, Heather. I get the picture. . . I will stop trying to "talk" to you at the coffee shop. . . dang! I thought our "conversations" were going so well, too! *sigh* ;)
Seriously though, I love the footnote!

Heather, are you talking about that guy I met when I went with you to that fab coffee shop in Claremont?

maybe you should give the coffee shop man a chance.

ha ha.

those campus events sound like fun, but then again i always want to do stuff like that, but never seem to actually follow through. oh well.

You know, I did give him a shot. But then he never called me. And I realized that he would only come over to talk to me when his friends weren't around--and that's a bad sign in my book.
