I seem to have a tradition to write a blog about returning to school. This year I haven't written such a blog yet, and now that I think about it, I haven't written many blogs at all this whole summer. I think I thought about it, or sat down to start one, or opened the page to begin writing at least 10 times since my last post, but nothing ever came out. No thoughts ever came to my head. I think that's how I run most of my life. I just go along with things and if something comes, then it comes, and if it doesn't, then I'll move on. Anyway, I moved into school 9 days early this year for a leadership conference for work and since I'm here so early I am in my nice, big, empty apartment all alone. I spent the first night alone just singing in the beautiful, empty space enjoying the acoustics of the bare walls. I spent the second night eating left-over Chinese food with the top of a pudding cup (which works curiously well) and galavanting all around town trying to find a store that was open late at night where I could find brownie mix so that my friend and I could make brownies (which, if you were wondering, turned out very well... they were cookie brownies). We went to CVS (who did not have any), and then saw the Food Lion employee lock the doors as we were pulling up, and finally we decided to give up on the hunt and just go for Walmart... the solution to almost every problem. We got the brownies (along with butter, 2 wooden spoons, some plastic cutlery, and dish washing detergent) and went on our way. It was great fun, and then I had one of those dreams that I woke up in the same situation but in my dream it was terrible and so confusing, but we won't get into that.
I hope the rest of world had as fabulous of a Monday night as mine.
