I’m too sleepy to think of a subject

October 21, 2006

I’m in Albany, NY and I’m sooo sleepy, but it’s only 6pm so it’s too late to nap and too early to go to sleep. So I’m sitting here in the armchair in my room struggling to stay awake. I have a feeling that around 7:30 I’m going to get my second wind and be wide awake til 11. I don’t know why I’m so tired. It might be cause I kept getting woken up this morning. Who knows… I have to get up at 4am tomorrow though so I need to sleep good tonight.

I would like to make note of my accomplishment for the day, week, month… I ran, not walked, but ran 20 minutes today. I warmed up by walking for 2 minutes, then ran for 20, then walked for 3 more. Might not impress anyone else but I wouldn’t be surprised if that was the longest I’ve run in years. And you know what made it possible? (I know you’re dying to know…) I listened to music. My mom bought me some new headphones that actually stay attached to my head while I run and I used a little mp3 player. It was amazing. During some of the songs I actually FELT LIKE RUNNING. As I was running I felt like I had discovered the goose that lays golden eggs or something. My main problem with running, other than just being really out of shape, is that I get really bored. I run for 5 mintues, watching the timer the whole time, and get so distracted by the pain and tiredness that I stop. It kind of sucks though cause now that I know what I’m capable of I’ll have to do it again next time. (That doesn’t really suck. I just raised the standard on myself. Go me!!) Now I need to get some new running shoes cause the ones I’m wearing are the same ones I’ve had for 3 years and they hurt my toes a lot. Needless to say I’m pleased with myself today. I also walked to and from lunch which was nice. It’s really cold up here so you have to walk fast to keep from dying :-P.

I need suggestions for good music to run to. I found that a lot of the hip hop stuff, though it has a quick beat, it isn’t strong enough. The song that I liked running to the most was the Jay-Z Lincoln Park remix, which I don’t normally like, but it was fantastic. I’d appreciate suggestions.

Speaking of accomplishments (though this one has nothing to do with anything I did), I have a new “nephew”. Chasity and Aaron had a little boy last night. I’m waiting to hear back from her for more details. Some of you may know her (and therefore may care). I’m really happy for them.

I think I’m going to go watch tv or read. I’m guessing football is the only thing on, as football seems to be the only thing people care about in the fall. I’m working on what feels like the longest book ever “Cider House Rules”. I never watched the movie but I found the book at work a few weeks ago and have gotten sucked in. It’s going on forever and ever. I just want to know how it ends. It’s really interesting. Lots of controversial things in it, but that’s what makes life interesting sometimes, isn’t it?

Happy Saturday to all.
