I probably got six-hours worth of sleep. The light comes in so strongly in the morning. I got up, had some coffee and then went to my Boss’ Boot Camp, and it was brutal because it was on asphalt. Our Boot Camp is on grass and trail when we do it outside. I didn’t even bear crawl because I didn’t want to tear up my hands. So suburban… Crawling in a dusty parking lot in between traffic cones. But, hell, I wear my gloves so my callouses are smaller on the palms of my hands where my fingers start, so I’m not going to tear them up on asphalt. I did 26-minutes of cardio stations though with no rest and did manage to cut my wrist, forearm, and bicep flipping the tractor tire at one station. Butch moment 🙂
I rode my bike with my colleague again, but we didn’t go all the way to the reservoir today. We rode an hour, and then my client was a no-show, which stunk. I shopped for books for graduation presents. I love book stores. This one used to be on the trail from my house and now it’s more downtown, but I love it so much. Although I cannot afford it, I bought Brene Brown’s new book, and think that I’m going to stay home to read it. I’m supposed to go to another graduation party, but the one for my intern really wore me out. Tons of exercise and oddly in my old age, I’m becoming more introverted and don’t want to make idle conversation with former students. I like one of them quite a lot, but I’d rather just send her the book and card. Laying on my couch and typing feels really good.
Earlier this evening, I thought that I would go to the bar, but I don’t want to now. I’m so happy here at home. I told my workout partner who accompanied me to my intern’s graduation party that I know that a girl is not going to knock on my door tonight, but I’m not willing to disrupt my happiness right now. That’s what I’ve come to. I’m happily tanked from Boot Camp, a bike ride, a few errands, and one party. That’s enough. I don’t want to seek much of anything right now or do I want to explain why I drank three beers late afternoon and talked and laughed, or that I ate two big plates of pasta. I think that it would take a really special girl for me to disrupt what I’m doing and what I seriously enjoy.
Congrats to hear you accomplished so much and are happy to just relish in your productivity. I just wrote a post about love and how we all shouldn’t be afraid to be alone, as it is the time where we truly find ourselves. Great post and keep up the great writing.
Thanks! What a nice thing to say. I felt a little badly about skipping the other party, but I just didn’t have the ability for chit chat with peeps from my program. I seek true connection. I’ve spent many years alone, and don’t want to rush anything in my future. Thank you for reading.
You’re welcome and great attitude. I wish more people could see it that way.
🙂 I’m just me, and can’t soften it or edit it. A friend told me this weekend, “No one would wonder where they stand.” Thanks again.
