On Walking the Line

So shit's been a little crazy these past few weeks since Graduation. I'm still working in Dr. Bettinger's worm lab, and I'm now trying to catch up for all of the ground I feel like I lost when I first started. I think things are going well, and really I should be going in today but I popped my back tube on the way home from a party last night and I haven't had a day off in 2+ weeks so I figure I could take this one day off and catch up later.

I've been doing alot of partying and I'm not 100% how I feel about it. I mean it is summer and I did just graduate but I don't know it just seems like every night I'm going out and while I have a good time I wish I could stay home sometimes. It's gotten to that point again thought that I don't like being home really, especially with my xboxs broken whenever I am home I just feel uneasy and I kind of want to leave. I like being home, like today I'm glad that I'll just be able to sit around but, I'm not sure how to explain it.

I leave Ranger HQ in 2 months, and then 6 short months after that I'm leaving Richmond, which also menas that I need to start looking for jobs/programs really seriously and figure out where I'm going, I guess I should sit down and talk to Cory so we can hash out where we're going when we leave here. It's starting to hit me just how little time I have left in this city. There are so many things I want to do still, it's going to be so weird leaving here. I know I've talked about it alot here but I just can't get over it.

Things are still fairly quiet on the lady front, no real updates, no serious prospects. What else is new though, I'd like to meet someone but since I'm leaving so soon it seems fairly pointless. Plus a serious relationship is not what I want/need, and I feel like I've exausted 90% of the resources this city has given me as far as girls go.

I've just gotten the idea to make a Richmond couterpart to A Grand Don't Come for Free.

I really like the Streets. But I feel like that's a talk for another time.

I'll leave you with this:

On Shopperist (Introduction)

So a friend of mine has a really cool blog, where she finds cool clothes/stuff to buy and talks about them. Mind you most of these things none of us will ever be able to own but it's fun to look out, a girl can dream can't she?

I've found myself doing the same thing alot recently, only with bike apparel. So here are three things I've been lusting after for the past few weeks. Come on lotto tickets, do me well.

On Shopperist (Part 1)

This is the Chrome Mini.Metro bag. Yes I already have a chrome bag but it's kinda bulky. I want something little that I can just pop all my stuff in and go to work. It's kind of a bitch getting things in and out of my rolltop. Plus I really like the color of this one. This one is on sale, so next paycheck maybe, but we'll see how things are going.

On Shopperist (Part 2)

This is the Chrome Pacer Zipped Jacket. Hidden compartments, lightweight, cut for riding. What's not to love? Oh the price, that's right. Actually this one and the black version are on sale right now so they may be a possibility next paycheck.

On Shopperist (Part 3)

These are a pair of biker's pants from Outlier. They're called the climbers, slim fit, water resistant, shaped for bikers. These pants are beautiful, functional, and I would look god damn good in them. Only problem is buying a pair of them would be half my rent, and they said they don't fit so well if you have sprinter's thighs. Which I fear I may have.
