Deja Vu...

Wow, if I didn't know any better, I could swear it was 1997 and I just got off a closing shift at the GAP. I'm sitting in front of my PC, feet so achy they're throbbing, it's hot, and I'm eating ice cream. My hamstrings are gradually reminding me that my dead lifts were quite effective this morning and my eyes hurt from over-wearing my contacts.

So what's the huge difference between now and then? Hm. Well, I guess a lot of things, yet it all seems to be quite parallell.

Then: I was a 3rd year at college, getting up each day for a grueling Crew practice, working 2 jobs (the GAP at night and the Alumni Development Office during the day), riding my bike everywhere. Each night my feet hurt, sometimes they were swollen.

Now: I get up everyday for my own grueling workouts, work 1 job, but 2 HW locations. One sometimes during the day, the other at night. I don't ride my bike as much for transportation, but try to when I can. I come home often with achy feet. Tonight they're pretty swollen.

Heh... As they say: the more things change, the more they stay the same.


What a day! I just feel so wiped out. I even had to call M and ask him not to come over. I haven't really seen him in a long time. But I really needed to be alone tonight. I just don't have the energy. I could tell over the phone that he felt "put out" to some degree.

What could I possibly say to explain myself? He asked me what was wrong. I told him I'd had "one of those days" and really needed to curl up by myself. I think he seemed a bit sad that I wasn't asking him to just come over to keep me company.

One thing that made me happy was that G came in to take Yoga at HW tonight. I also got to finally meet the famous Loxocele! It's cool to read someone's journals and then put a face with the name.

That storm tonight was something else! The parking lot at the gym became a lake within 10 minutes and the roof leaked in sections, as well as rain coming in through some windows that aren't properly insulated. So I frantically ran around the cardio floor chasing members off of equipment that was getting wet. Then I had to unplug them and post "Out of Order" signs. The last thing I needed was to have someone get electrocuted on my shift. Wouldn't that top my day?!

Anyway, I'm on the verge of collapse. I need to go to bed.
