I spent four hours last night writing css code.  That no one will ever see but me.  Why?  Because I realized I could do it, so I did it.  Rest assured, the admin area of this site is very pretty. 

Needless to say, I did not go running last night.  I did go on Tuesday night, however, and it absolutely amazes me how awful I have gotten at running.  Taking a month (well, probably closer to two months) off does not really help the training.  But it gives me a goal to work towards, and hey, it means my training runs are shorter!  Those two hour runs on the weekend were getting to be a bit much.  Perhaps I will not train up to those again anytime soon, seeing as I probably won’t run another race until the Cherry Blossom 10 Mile next spring. 

I’m seriously debating getting a roommate.  I fear the unknown, however, and so I’m absolutely not doing the random roommate thing.  At one point, I said I’d let a friend of a friend move in, but I’m not even sure about that one.  I do have one friend who’s looking for a place, so it’s entirely possible things will work out for both of us.  I don’t absolutely need a roommate, but given that I’m no longer getting my promised raise in September, a bit of extra money would be nice.   And it would be fun to have a friend around! 

I am not looking forward to cleaning out that room though.  Having lived in various two bedroom places for the past four years means that I’ve accumulated a lot of stuff because I have places to put it.  I am well aware that much of the stuff is stuff that I really don’t need and haven’t needed in years.  Of course, while unpacking after my move, all the stuff I didn’t know what to do with ended up in that room.  Or in the closet of doom, which also probably needs to be cleaned out.

When I moved, I paid the movers to pack.  Given the distance of the move and my fear that my truck would go off a cliff or something (if you had met the driver I was assigned, you would have been worried too).  Having the movers pack meant that I got way better insurance, and it meant I didn’t have to pack while worrying about the bar exam.  But it also meant that I didn’t do the traditional “Pack or toss” routine when I moved.  Everything moved!  And then when moving in, I didn’t want to have to deal with that dilemma – I just wanted everything put away. 

I think that no matter what happens with the roommate situation, by the end of the summer, I want to have that room cleaned out.  I want to be sure that I’m only keeping things I really want or need to keep, and everything else is getting tossed, donated, or sold.  I’m a little bit afraid of what’s all stashed in the closet, to be honest.
