So I hate to be a complainer, I really do, but I am just so frustrated with my stupid joints. I have talked to a few of my friends who are varsity college athletes and explained my symptoms and they both agreed I should see a doctor. If this was a year ago, 6 months ago, or even 3 months ago, I would have made every excuse in the book to make something wrong that wasn’t actually wrong just so I could have an excuse. I was the queen of excuses; I can’t do this because of this, I can’t do that, etc. Since that leaf has finally turned, it is so frustrating I actually have a valid excuse, but its unacceptable to me.
I really just want to run.
On another note, 12 days cannot come soon enough. I love my parents, I really do, but I m not a child. I refuse to be treated like one. I will be 22 in a little over a month. I hate the transition from college life to home life. At school, I can do what I want, when I want. Thats not to say I am irresponsible, I get good grades, I don’t do drugs, I have a job, I get all my work done, and I have a wonderful group of friends. I have had so much time with my parents this summer; I barely have a social life because I have lost touch with a lot of friends from home, and those who I still talk to work opposite hours to mine. My close friends live far away because they are college friends, so my routine is generally work, gym, home. The one time I want to do something by myself with a friend, they flip because apparently they wanted a “family day” without filling me in. I’m sorry, did we not have “family time” all freaking summer?! I just need to get out of here.
Hopefully today I will get to see a friend from school for some back to school retail therapy. I have known Andrea since freshman year and we have gotten pretty close. She studied abroad in Barcelona in the Fall and I was in England in the spring so we lost some time together but I saw her over Christmas break and we ran into each other right when I got home, but we haven’t spent a lot of time together. She is a great friend and we always have a ton of laughs. I need some laughs right now.
Sorry for the rant post, I had a lot on my mind.
Whats one thing that made you smile this weekend?
