Getting a life!

Up until last night, I had been secluded at home for six days working on some papers for school. Six days. In many circles that's considered almost a week. It hit me yesterday that the only people I had seen in six days are the couple who own the corner store, where I make periodic coffee cream and cigarette runs. I had not touched anyone in that time - not a soul but my cat. That's not healthy. No wonder I was getting all teary at Gilmore Girls reruns: I was going bananas! I don't know how Tom Hanks did it on that island, with only a soccer ball.

But last night, I left the house. And let me tell you, it was GLORIOUS. A wine-n-cheese departmental affair - fine folks, good conversation, loads of wine, and a delicious spread. AND one of my colleagues gave me a tip that is going to help me finish this final paper that I've been knocking my head against!

It's really good to feel alive again!

Congrats Fishies,

Welcome back to civilization (I think?!) Hope your papers go really well!

Thanks, Queen of the Pirates! I feel fantastic! The papers *still* aren't finished, but I have gone out and been social several times this week, and boy! I feel so much better than I did last week :)

How's your social resolution coming along? It's hard to break those habits, isn't it?
