It seems to me that pairs occur often in my life.
It has probably always been like this but I have noticed it more lately because I have been reading Her Fearful Symmetry–which is about twins. For instance, good days are paired with..not as good ones. I should have known that my wonderful wednesday would be followed by a throughly sick thursday (attempt at alliteration..BAM that just happened twice)
I woke up on the right side of the bed Wednesday, went to the gym, and donned my favorite sweater
I didn’t wash my hair in the shower, so that called for some quick curlage
QUICK FACT: I always curl my hair when I am too lazy to wash and brush it. Quite possibly the one and only perk of having really really fine hair is it takes two seconds to curl.
I drove my dirty-haired self down to campus for lunch with the crew, followed by a short reporters meeting which led to non stressed hanging out until Jen’s african dance performance.
I met up with Jen’s mom to watch some sweet African Dancing–at the end we got to try too! It was fun :)
I could feel a bit of sickness creeping in so I headed to Whole Foods to pick up some soup. Who woulda thought that they only had two options, both of which were supremely salty?!
not me. boo.
I got asked for out for drinks in the produce section–which made me feel simultaneously old and young. Old because they thought I was old enough to be able to do that, and young because I had to inform the asker that I was not.
Then I headed to the best friend’s place for dinner, youtube videos, and sleepover!
was rough from the get-go. My three day hair was not so tasty looking to say the least and I had to wake up at eight and drag myself to a three hour long Finance and Facilities Regent’s meeting sans breakfast.
I barely escaped dying of hunger before I dropped my stuff at the office and clacked my way to satalite for a rise and shine. Doesnt that just sound happy?
It was delicious, but scarfed in approximately four minutes. After an hour of trying to cough my way through work I gave up and headed home for an afternoon of TV and on and off napping. Punctuated by periodic eating and vitamin C taking.
Blah. Today is Friday. It is 1, and I woke up at 12 which is how I know that I am officially under the weather. I have plans for today–none of which I have made any kind of headway on.
Hopefully I will write my article, hopefully I will get to the gym, hopefully I will get off my couch.
We’ll see I guess.
