1. Well, my affair with the Gel-Cumulus 16s ended up being rather short lived. They kept making my feet go numb, which was no bueno.
So now I’m back to the 15s and living in state of denial. The 16s made my feet go numb because they reshaped the toe box (WHY. WHY DO SHOE COMPANIES DO THIS. WHY DO BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO GOOD PEOPLE.), and the new toe box and my feetzies did not agree with one another. I also bumped my shoes up half a size, per the recommendation of the saleswoman at Universal Sole. She initially did this to solve my 16 numbness issue, but then realized they had 15s in a half size larger than my normal size in stock, so she let me try those on and it was seriously just a night and day difference. Apparently, my left foot is also larger than my right foot (I call foul. I have perfect feet, thank you very much), which would explain why I kept getting blisters on my left toes in the 15s last summer while my right feet were just fine and dandy. Hopefully going up half a size will resolve that problem.
I really wanted to upgrade to the 16s, mostly so I could finally settle into a shoe instead of changing brands/models every stupid time I need new shoes, but ohhhhhhhh no. Asics had to be stupid. Boo hiss.
2. I’m turning into my mother. Growing up, if she expected someone to be at our house by a certain time and they weren’t, she would always jump to the worst conclusion possible. A lot of traffic? A late start? Nah. They were definitely dead in a ditch.
I have totally become that person, and I think our hyperconnected world is just making my anxieties worse. Silence on social media, unreturned e-mails or voicemails (even if there was no reason to return the e-mail or voicemail), not seeing someone where I expected to see them: PANIC MODE. It’s totally ridiculous, and I know it’s ridiculous, and yet here I am, stressed over who is and is not on Gchat. Dumb.
3. The time has finally arrived. Graduation Extravaganza, Graduationpalooza, Graduation Fest of 2014: however you want to phrase it, the week of madness is (almost) here. I’ve got a college graduation, a high school graduation, and a high school grad party to attend next week. So much pomp and circumstance. So many caps and gowns. (So much good food for free… 😀 haha) It should be a good time, though not gonna lie, I’m bummed I have to be out of town for a full week. Earlier this year I would’ve done anything to get out of Chicago for a week…now I don’t want to leave. LIFE. Haha. I’ll survive 😛
Do you worry when you don’t hear from people when you expected to? Alternatively: are you turning into your parents?
Are you going to any graduations this year? Or all of the graduations, as the case may be…haha.
