Oh, to see it with my own eyes

I’ve been sitting around for a few days anticipating this post (but I missed realizing this last night at two in the morning when I was posting it). But, I feel that this is an occasion worthy of noting as this is, officially

My 700th Blog Post! 

I know.
What? 700? Really? That’s a little overkill, don’t you think? There’s no way I’ve written 700 posts.
Welp. I guess I have. Who knew?
Anyway, thanks for sticking with me and indulging me here, friends. You’re all stellar pieces in my messy little world, you know. And for that, I can’t thank you enough.

 

This blog post is brought to you by: My 10:30 pm cup of coffee

It is now nearing two in the morning. And although it is finals week here and everywhere else, I imagine, and college students are sitting at tables with open textbooks under bad fluorescent lights, I am not awake flipping through flash cards or trying to hammer out a last-minute paper. My paper is finished, my notecards are written and I don’t have an exam until Wednesday. Thus, my motivation to work is nonexistent at this moment. And while I have work very early in the morning, I am not asleep. Thanks for nothing, coffee. If only you were this effective on crappy Monday mornings and days after late-night English paper writing. Around 12:30 I opted to go for a short bike ride though to burn some energy. It didn’t work, but it was stellar nonetheless. A perfect chilliness greeted my bicycle and I as I stepped out of my apartment. I put my headphones in my ears and did my best to lower the volume of the constant talk-radio commentary in my head to listen to some stellar Local Natives harmonies. I rode past familiar streets and houses and sidewalks usually filled with unfamiliar faces and busy noises. But late at night, the quiet is welcoming as I forget about stop signs and impatient cars trailing behind as I ride because there are none, and there’s no need to stop moving forward for no one else is around.

      That’s so sweet, Julia. I’m pretty proud of myself for keeping up with this thing for so long, too. It’s been a challenge, for sure. So nice to know you care about me and stuff.

      That was my response to the comment you didn’t write but that I pretended you did instead of the one above.
