Thoughts From The 23rd of February (2017)

Hi Wonderful Listeners!

Today was both a wonderful day and a terrible day. How so? Well, overall, it was a great day except for two unexpected occurrences. They did throw me for a loop but I powered through them. However, let me just dive into my day and you’ll see what I’m talking about.

So I started out by getting up at a decent hour. I woke up with enough time to put myself together in a decent way. I had the pleasure of catching the bus with Armand (who’s still crashing on our couch every other night or so.) We caught the bus and we were on our way to campus.

After reaching campus, we went our seperate ways. I decided to stop by Dos Gatos Kolaches since I was feeling hungry for breakfast. The lovely people who were there had me in and out in like two minutes. They’re so great. I love their service and kolaches! 🙂 Funny enough, walking from Dos Gatos to my first class in Sabinal, I ran into Armand again. Apparently, he was feeling hungry too (which is a shame because we could’ve had breakfast together.)

Thoughts From The 22nd Of February (2017)

Hello Wonderful Listeners!

Today was an excellent day! I mean, it couldn’t have gone better (at least not in retrospect that is…) What made today especially nice is that I didn’t have to make an early start!

So I actually got up at 1PM today instead of 10AM. Why? Because I wasn’t required to go to my first class. So I didn’t. 😛 Jessica had told us that she was going to be gone and that it was a work day so we could use it how we saw fit.

Well, I didn’t go to my first class but I did end up going to campus around 2PM to get the work done for that specific class. (Yeah, there’s no getting around the work that needs to get done is there?) Well, before leaving the apartment, I chatted with my roommates as I usually do. Of course, we were talking about something really mundane and not important but these conversations are always inviting.

Thoughts From The 21st Of February (2017)

What’s going on Listeners?!

Today was one of those days that just passes you by. Mainly because nothing exciting happened but, it was a good day nonetheless. I didn’t really have anything spectacular happen but I’ll recap my day for you all anyways. It should be fairly quick.

So I woke up at 10AM to get ready. Armand joined got off of our couch (again) to come catch the bus with me. What was nice was that David also needed to catch the bus so we all left together. We all waited outside for our bus but the one we usually catch was full, and we knew we were going to be late for class. We ended up getting to campus at like 11AM on the dot, the time at which our classes started.

Thoughts From The 6th Of February (2017)

Hi there Wonderful Listeners!

Well, today has already been a quite interesting day if I do say so myself. Honestly, I want to just jump right in actually.

So, it’s Monday. I have Thesis II at 11am but I didn’t really get to spend much time there. Why? Well, because I had a special luncheon to go to. Sincerely. I did spend about 40 minutes in class but that was because I had to talk about my project proposal for the class.

Last semester I focused on anxiety disorders. This semester, I’m jumping into ideas that I really want to focus on, like storytelling and sentimentality. Well, I presented my ideas to the class and they gave me some wonderful feedback. Honestly, it inspired me to continue on with what I’m doing, mainly because it validated that my ideas were acceptable ones. 🙂

A Snippet Of Sean’s Time

Wassup Listeners!

Here’s a little something for you. I had the pleasure of reconnecting with GC (you may remember him from this post) over tea. His real name is Sean, and I feel no problem using it now that that experience is water under the bridge.

I met him around 12:40pm at a place called Mocha’s and Java’s. It’s a nice little local coffee and tea spot in my college town. Anyway, we met up at that time, although we originally planned to meet up 10 minutes earlier. Eh, he was late because of a train so I mean, it happens.

Well, we grabbed our respective teas (I felt a good peppermint at the time and he got Earl Grey, a black tea) and sat down on the provided couches. What we discussed was not really all that exciting or important to be honest. However, I was nice enough to entertain the man since he’s not that bad of a guy. Plus, I was hoping that maybe I would be able to relate to him more if we talked one-on-one.

Well, we asked the usual questions: how are you classes going? Has it been hard? How do you feel about graduating? How’s life? What are you doing these days? Yada yada yada… I think we spent about an hour just chatting with each other. However, since it wasn’t about anything truly relevant or important, I can’t remember most of it.

What I do know is that in spending my time with Sean, I get conflicted. He’s a good person that I have a hard time relating to but who wants to relate with me. I don’t know how to address this situation, so I just entertain for the most part. But not to be too hard on myself and him, I do enjoy some things we talk about. But only some…

Honestly, I’m pretty sure he’s trying to connect with me because I never had anything against him. Obviously, he must have liked my company which is why he invited me to get tea during the afternoon between classes.

But, I think in the future I may visit him at his apartment and meet his dog, Daisy, and possibly say hi to Jason, his friend/roommate. But that’s for later in the future (possibly.) I think my snippet of Sean’s time was a healthy one. It was just enough and I wouldn’t mind doing it again, although, perhaps talking about something I care about maybe…

Around 1:40pm, Sean and I left. I needed to get to my 2pm class which was about 15 minutes away. Sean was nice enough to walk me over there, even though his 2pm class we would pass it by going to mine. Hey, he’s a nice guy so I suppose he’s got that going for him.

Let’s try this again sometime Sean… Maybe we’ll connect on a deeper level. Who knows?

OK. That’s all I got. Cheers guys!
