Conversation with my brain:
Me: Brain, we have to keep on the straight and narrow for 8 more days. No partying we have a lot of finals to study for.
Brain: That sounds like a chill plan brosef. Let's kick some finals week ass.
Me: I mean it we can't be running around celebrating stop day eve or any other nonsense.
Brain: Bro, I totally dig it. No boozin' until we are completely done.
Phone: Ring, ring, ring
Me: Hello. No I can't I have a metric schnoz-ton of finals next week...
Brain: VETOED! Let's rage it gnar-brah.
Thoughts that have resulted from that dialogue:
- I like Royals baseball when they don't suck, which is now. Any other year I would probably be hatin' on the team and their physical MO location. The renovations at the K are definitely worth the $7 ticket even though the beer is ridiculously pricey.
- There really is no better place to be for scenery on stop day eve than the wheel. For all intensive purposes I should hate this bar since it stands for everything evil in the world (greeks). But I don't and that is a little unsettling for me.
- Road bike rides take too long to use as a "break from studying." Kit up, ride, shower, eat: that's like a three hour process. Not doing that ever again.
- Even though I have got down with the good times pretty hard this week I'm pretty proud of myself for not once showing up late to work (7am and without a hangover!) and for slowly accomplishing everything that needs to get done. I'm sure I will freak out pretty hard in the next few days but overall I'm feeling pretty dang good about what needs to happen to get through finals week.
I'm eventually going to get back to writing something besides my own thoughts. So don't worry loyal friend readers. Sordid tales of our travels and adventures will be back as soon as I climb off of this soapbox and do something worth writing about with y'all.
