Our Lives This Week
Hello lovely people! What can I say about this week? Well, I’m feeling like myself again. I don’t know what it means that the second I break out of my routine of staying home everyday and working on my dissertation and blogging that I suddenly crash and burn, but it is what it is. I will have to learn to cope with it eventually.
The only really traumatic thing that happened for me this week was A GIANT SPIDER on the wall next to the stairs at Dave’s house. You see, growing up I’ve never really had to deal with spiders because my Dad doesn’t like them and kills them off. But at Dave’s? No! They all treat them as friendly little pets, and they’re EVERYWHERE. If I see them, I have to yell at Dave to get rid of them, which he does by escorting them out of the building instead of killing them. (Lucky bastards!) But yeah, I literally almost had a panic attack trying to go up and down the stairs with this massive freaking spider on the wall. As soon as Dave’s parents came home from work, I brought it to their attention so they could remove it, which they did. Of course, Dave’s Dad had fun the rest of the night walking up the stairs and going “Oh hey, when did you get back there?” Trying to freak me out that the massive bugger was back! Ahh! But apart from that, my week was alright.
So um… Hey… Hi guys. I uhhh… Well, I’ve sort of been recovering this week? I’m back on my meds, but they’re only mildly helping, which sucks. This week has been one of personal care (doctor appointments, hair/nails/eyebrows getting “done,” etc.) and remembering things. For some reason, I keep being reminded of stuff I wanted to do years ago, but haven’t done yet.
I remember when I was researching an epic blog post on the statistics of UFC fighters, the type of shorts they wear, and their performance.

Also, a lot of contemplation about about people, relationships, lives, deaths, and choices. (My friend’s cat went missing, my oldest living uncle died this week, all of the goings-on in Ferguson, personal goals and desires for my future, etc.) Oh, and I’ll be out of town for the next couple of days, so see you mid-week!
