It's been a couple days since I've written to you guys; so I figured it's about time for me to report in.
I believe the last time you heard from me was right after Octoberfest, which was pretty cool except that it was kind of small. Never-the-less, there was beer and there was brauts, a good combination for any self-loving German like myself. Of course, I can't honestly say anyone should dislike that dynamic duo!
Unfortunately, everything was ridiculously expensive, and as a result, I wasn't able to try both. Fortunately, I went with my instincts and decided that tasting good food was more important than tasting good beer since I can always get drunk later. After stuffing my face with a sandwich consisting of a giant braut, saurkraut, a potato salad and a tangy mustard, we wandered around a bit enjoying the festivities.
After a while, we resorted to hacky sack and walking around trying to whore Travis off to the highest bidder. Unfortunately, nobody took. Then again, I'm sure Corina would have had my nuts after I told her that we no longer legally own Travis because I sold him into slavery to a 92 year old woman.
Sunday was largely uneventful except for me stuffing my face at Golden Corral, still one of my favorite buffet destinations. For anyone who hasn't been there, I highly recommend you check it out because GC is one of the only buffets with all-you-can-eat STEAK! Plus, they commonly have other good eats like shrimp, ham, and even nachos.
Anyway, Monday comes, another week of hobo-ness. Yesterday wasn't so bad. It was a little hot when I got to school, and I didn't get any free food, but since I was able to have a quick breakfast (slim fast lol) before school, I wasn't horribly hungry throughout the day.
Today, I spent a long time in the gym. In fact, in total, I think I did about 45min of running, which is a bit much for me. Of course, I took breaks in between (for 2-4 minutes at a time), but that's besides the point. If I could run for 45 straight minutes without feeling like a piece of crap when I was done, I'd probably do it, but until then, I've gotta pace myself.
I keep wondering if I can run a 10-min mile, yet, but I'm not quite willing to try.
I've also been working on my chest area a lot by doing that machine that reminds me of a row boat. It seems to be doing a good job at building my upper shoulder muscles and flattening out my chest area, which is exactly what I want. In fact, my chest area is the part of my body I'm most self conscious about, even more so than my stomach pudge. I guess it just seems unnatural for a guy to have a little extra weight up there.
Anyway, I've adopted a new project, helping a friend with a critical analysis of a book "Bridget Jones's Diary." Has anyone heard of it? If so, feel free to leave some comments at the bottom of this page.... no, seriously... leave some comments, dude. Just go ahead and click the "previous entry button" a couple of times and look to see how long its been since I've had a comment. I can tell you right now that I haven't had a single comment since May... MAY! And if you don't count my own comments, I've gotten a total of 6 comments. Seriously, guys... step it up!
Anyway, I got some free pizza today. 5 slices of vegie pizza (although the pineapple sounded tempting too) and I even got half a cup of free Dr. Pepper, which is another thing I don't get to have very often.
Well, hopefully, I'll get some food stamps or figure out some money soon, at least to survive me until next semester. Being starving all the time is by-far the hardest part of this whole campus life. I seriously need to figure out some grub! There's gotta at least be something I can take with me.
The other hard part is dealing with dirty laundry... bleh! I mean, sure its sectioned off from the rest of my laundry, but it smells horrid! It almost (but not quite) makes me think I just ought to travel back and forth to my car every day just to store the laundry in there. Idk... it'd be a lot easier to manage locker space, but as of now, I definitely have enough room.
Okay, guys. Now it's your turn. Leave me some comments below. Tell me what you think of "Bridget Jones's Diary" or let me know what it would take to get you guys to actually leave comments.
