I’ve smiled in a total of 2 times today. I’ve never felt so sad :(
So I have this tradition that I started when I went off for college. I’d give up some sort of food for a year. Last year I gave up chocolate. This year, I gave up fast food and chips. I feel like 10x better giving up fast food (my wallet does too). I asked my friends to do it with me, so there’s like 5 or 6 of us that don’t eat fast food unless it’s a special occasion. They said anything with a drive-thru. I followed by their rules, but I’m going to give up anything equivalent to fast food. Like fries, chicken tenders, burgers, etc. at any restaurant. I feel like it’s cheating if you go and sit down in a nicer restaurant and order the same thing (which is normally more expensive).
I find it hard to believe how distant I’ve come with my best friends. I think it was all the alone time that I’ve spent with my computer. I just sit here and Skype people all day long, but I’ve almost forgot how to interact in person. Is that weird? I honestly blame my ankle and knee. When the semester started, I had quit playing games. I didn’t play games for 2 months of the summer and 2 months into school. I was playing basketball every single day. I played ultimate almost 3 times a week. I skateboarded every other night. When my knee started giving me major pains, and when I sprained my ankle once a week for 4 months, my body just gave up. I picked games back up. My body is so pale now. I probably lack vitamin D because of the lack of exposure to sunlight. When finals was over last Thursday, I went outside on Monday and my eyes were watering up cause it hadn’t seen sunlight in 5 days. I miss staying out until 3 am with my friends. I miss playing all the sports. The muscles in my legs are so tense now from constantly sitting in a chair all day. It would take an hour to properly stretch my muscles. On the bright side… I’m better at games, and I’ve watched plenty of TV. Pitiful. Someone sign me up for a 26k marathon. I need some motivation in my life.
