So I re-read my last post and realized I was still very sick and had taken quite a bit of medicine while writing that so I apologize if half of it doesn’t make sense. I would like to add one more resolution to my short list. One that I realized I really need to make as I was having dinner with a friend a couple nights ago. It suddenly dawned on me that I’ve been pushing most of my friends away with the same excuses such as “I have an odd work schedule/days” or “I’m busy studying” or “I have too much to do with the CCS program to have time for anything else.” Well now that I’m done with the program and able to use Time-Off-with-Pay, I feel now I should try to reconnect with many of my friends. At the very least, if friendships have fallen apart, I won’t be as hard on myself for not trying.
Resolution #2: Reach out to visit and see my friends more this year
Still recovering from my cold. It seems to have hit many of my co-workers but I suppose I got lucky since I didn’t get a fever or lose my voice. Remarkably, running has actually helped push my sickness and congestion away, at least while I’m running. I am getting a little nervous for the Surf City Half Marathon that is quickly approaching but we’ll be doing a practice run this Sunday at the Santa Monica Winter Blast 15K. I hope all goes well! ^^;;
