Stuff from Stephers

I used to share a blog with Melissa, but she's been MIA for a few months, so I made it all mine! Random thoughts on my every day life to bore you with.

My prison

Here's something I have realized lately that really sucks. Being a grad student and all, I'm home a lot. Most people would think being home a lot would be something nice, but it isn't. I feel like my weeks and weekends run into each other and everything is the same. The only difference is that SOMEtimes on weekend evenings I get to hang out with my friends. The days though...they're all the same. Me chilling out with my dog. I'd much rather be busy and have something like the weekend to look forward to. I used to hate Sunday cause it meant the weekend was over, but now I hate it cause it means 6 more days until I get to see people again. I think it's part of the reason that I'm such good friends with so many of my neighbors - they're the only people I see most of the time. I mean, who else is home enough when they get packages that the UPS man knows them well enough to tease the dog and make fun of their signature? (Speaking of UPS men, I just got shoes delivered and I swear they smell like feet). When I go to class I get to talk to people for a few minutes on the break, and at my internship I get a couple minutes a week to chat with peers, and sometimes I IM with Billy or someone during the day, but really life is booooring. It makes me dwell over things that are probably best forgotten. OK, back to the topic at hand - if you ever think I'm particularly spastic or talkative when I'm around you, well that's just because I'm so used to my solitary confinement that it's like a field day. And you teachers know how exciting field day is. I know, I know, I'm being a leetle dramatic. I just feel blahbbey blahbbey boring. So now I'll stop what most of you probably think is whining. The grass is always greener I guess.

I know how you feel, because my life is pretty similar. If only we were in the same town so we could be boring together. But I'm usually online, even though it always says I'm away, so I'm always free to talk :)

The grass is totally greener...what I wouldn't give to spend a day in my pajamas watching TLC and reading something stimulating. Meanwhile, I'm still a paper pusher :).

Well, this is the reason why I so graciously planned to have you come help me assemble programs on Saturday. :) But seriously, I had a long talk with my UPS man today. He's not your's, by the way, but he knows him.

I wonder if our UPS men talk about us talking about them.
