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.
