Saturday I drove back to Austin, the doctor from San Antonio brought a bunch of her doctor friends up (technically they're all residents for another few months, but whatever). One was really cool and good looking and fun, that was her best friend. The other was cute but not my type (she likes older guys, because they "know what they want"). She also brought a guy who is the speak first, think later type. Reminded me of me from college.
Anyway we hung out in Austin and it was a ton of fun. Did a lot of drinking but no making out so I guess that would have to be considered disappointing. I didn't have that in my head though. It's like there are different alprazolams, the "socializing" alprazolam, the "making out" alprazolam, and the "work makes me want to kill myself" alprazolam. I have great difficulting switching from one mode to another, it often takes days of preparation. I need to be smoother...guess I just have to keep working on it.
Downloaded the Cowboys game Sunday night when I got back but haven't finished it yet, just got through the first half this morning. Demarcus Ware is turning into a beast.
Hung out with the former neighbor, whom I'll hence refer to as Mr. Dazzle. He was druuunk, apparently he got a B in his math class so he was pissed off and got drunk. He swears he got the matrix stuff right. I hope so since I spent over an hour last week helping him with it.
Work is boring and frustrating and I constantly feel like I'm wasting my life. I also feel like all my skills have eroded and I've forgotten everything I learned in school, so that I'd never be able to get a job anywhere else.
My sister was dating an older guy, she was to meet him Saturday but he was really drunk, so she left. He texted her Sunday morning and then apparently was found dead (alcohol + diabetes) Sunday night. She's a little down.
My brother had an interview in Chicago but didn't get it, but he's not giving up yet.
I'm trying to finish up the second book in the Foundation series. I stayed up til 12:30 reading last night and I'm tired now. Fortunately I have my own happy little coffee maker right here under my desk.
I tried making Red Pepper Crusted Tuna with Mango Salsa last week. It was a mediocre effort at best, but I suppose I learned a little bit.
I'm burned out at the gym even though I've been taking Friday off this month. I haven't been on a real routine so I haven't been making much progress. Hopefully that will change next year when I plan to start on a new routine.
I bought my mom a $60 table runner and paid $30 to ship it overnight. Whatever....I'm not going to think about it anymore.
I'm going to St. Louis for New Year's. Should be a ton of fun.
