Settling into school. I have a solid study group going. We all share like four classes or something like that. Still looking for a job. Not a big fan of the unemployed life.
Went on a long weekend a week and a half ago to visit a friend. It was pretty nice to get out of town for a bit. Though the street preacher yelling "Where's the Jew?" was less appealing.
Having finally started settling into not only school but living in the south, I have a few friends which is great. One of them I'm definitely closer to than the others. And I'm catching feelings for her which I didn't want to. We're very similar, similar hobbies, similar sense of humor, both getting our MPH so we can challenge each other mentally too. We mesh really well. The first time we hung out outside of class we went to get lunch, and we ended up sitting on my balcony after for the rest of the night. And every time we hang out it goes like that -- way longer than planned. This past Saturday, she came over and we spent all day baking and doing homework. We went out to dinner after and came back to my place to watch TV. Then she laid down in my lap and we cuddled for a few hours while perusing Zillow. The next day I asked her what the deal was and she said just friends. We're still texting way too much. Last night we sent duck gifs to each other all night. It's really messing with me.
2021 Ig Nobel winners were announced. While exploring their website, I noticed a typo on a random page. I emailed them to let them know, and they offered a free journal as thanks. It's absolutely incredible and there's a real chance I subscribe now. Always enjoyed those awards and the journals they throw together are just masses of absurd research through history for a single topic. It's probably a good idea to give them some support.
