at the speed of...

it seems like the new year had just begun and now february is almost over. weird yes, but even mor exciting because march and spring are so close!! have been staying pretty busy with work, workin out and meetings. always lots of little things for sure, but nothing major.

started taking an intensive 7 week course on digging deep into the resentments and personal conflicts that are stopping me from becoming more spiritual. the idea is to locate them, document them, rectify them and hopefully grow from it. the class isn't just for alcoholics and they draw resource material from all over. the first class on tuesday was a bit odd and scary but i want to stick it out.

next week i get to see andrew bird and haley bonar at the fine line. two of my faves on one stage, yeah! the last concert i went to was the low holiday show i think. i used to see tons of bands, which may have been a cover for going out and getting drunk. not always though. i guess i'm just a bit more selective these days and prefer a sit down concert venue to a rowdy bar show. less variables to be concerned with + people at concert venues tend to be there for the music and less for the social aspect.

i ripped my swimsuit in the spin dryer at the gym on tuesday and got a new one yesterday. couldn't quite commit to a full on brief style speedo, but ended up with a sleek pair of black nike jammers (mid to lower thigh). what a difference it has made though! i was swimming in trunks for awhile and without all the extra drag i just glide and glide through the water. i did 40 laps today! a new distance record for myself which works out to be a mile and quarter. i am constantly amazed by the human body and how mine is rebounding. so new suit great, getting awful. i had to go to bloomington or richfield or somewhere that wasn't minneapolis and boy i discovered how much i dislike the suburbs.l why i ask, why would anyone live there?! this rant could go on forever so we'll just leave it at that.

i went to a dinner thrown by an old roommate of mine, on the occasion of celebrating my two years of sobriety. dinner was so amazing and hanging out with friends who i once used to put behind getting fucked up was an amazing testament to my sobriety. i am so grateful these people + new ones are in my life, and want to be too! they almost all gave me fancy, high end chocalates. something i am starting to gather a taste for, but i felt a little odd getting gifts.

i picked up an extra shift at the big lil' bakery tomorrow for whatever reason-oh yeah i'm poor. i did however get some very, very exciting employment news and details to follow i promise.........
