Nothing like a phone call from a student loan company to get your heart racing on a Monday night.
Life has been crazy as of late; mostly good, with a little bad thrown in from time to time. Something happened yesterday that has had me down in the dumps for over 24 hours now. Angry me leads to frustrated me which leads to depressed me. It’s a bit of a story and not something I feel comfortable sharing in this format, but if you want the deets message me and I’ll share.
I’ve been running regularly, although six weeks of injuries has set me back a pretty way, so I’m not going to be able to run my half this month. :( However, I should have some concept of where in the hell I’ll be living for the next year as of the end of this week, which should make planning my life/races/visits to friends (like you!) much easier to manage. I’m tired of being in limbo, but unfortunately that’s right where application processes put you.
I’ll try to be a better Tumblr, I promise! =]
Because I do, every.single.time.
If you haven’t already read Room by Emma Donoghue, get yourself a copy right now. A friend told me about it a couple of months ago, but there was no Kindle copy through the library, so I didn’t end up reading it until I purchased it for $2 at Half Price Books.
This book is phenomenal. The narrator is a 5 year old boy who has only known the world as the 11x11 room he and his mother are imprisoned in. He thinks that the things on television are all fake and the only world is their room. A fascinating look at fantasy v. reality, great writing, interesting premise. Although the situation the boy and his mother are in could easily become very crime driven (the mother was kidnapped and imprisoned, then impregnated), the book veers away from that and instead focuses on the boy’s perspective.
What are you reading these days?
