Yesterday was relatively uneventful for a Monday, a few co-workers and I headed out for Michelle’s birthday lunch, and then we had cupcakes.  Well, they had cupcakes, I was stuffed from my lunch of chicken fingers and fries and watched them eat cupcakes.  I recently changed my hours from 7:30-4:00 to 7:00-3:30 and getting out that extra 30 minutes earlier is really awesome.  I had a whole hour to relax when I got home before I had to head out to physical therapy.

PT was alright, for some reason my knee and hip were both unusually sore yesterday which makes me sad.  This is week 3, and I was hoping to notice some improvement, and I’m not, at all.  I do have a bruise on the side of my leg where they massage though, so don’t know if it’s from that or some drunken injury from Saturday, haha.  I didn’t ask about the 1/2 marry last night, I want to wait until Thursday to ask my other trainer (I trust him more) and see what he says.

Dinner was my leftover chicken and fries from lunch, and lots and lots of water.  I only peed twice yesterday, once when I got up in the morning and once when I got home from work, so I thought my body would appreciate some hydration.

Over the weekend there was a riot at the college I graduated from.  Every spring traditionally there is a huge block party, and alumni return for an unofficial “alumni weekend”.  Apparently this year it became out of control the cops had to be called in, the crowd was tear gassed, people were arrested, and there was tons of destruction.  The kids were throwing beer bottles at the police, who were dressed in riot gear, it was a disaster.  This really makes me sad because when I was in school there, it was always just a great weekend to hang out and party outside enjoying one of the last weekends of school.  Here is how I remember it.

And here’s what happened on Saturday.

That’s all I’ve got for today, I hope everyone enjoys their Tuesday!

  1. Ugh… we always had a huge fall block party like this… it got moved on occasion from one neighborhood to another because they got broken up quite often.

    One year I went, they blocked off the entrance to the neighborhood and ten cop cars came in… people started throwing bottles and even peeing on the cars as they drove in. It was out of control…

  2. Isn’t it funny how a half and hour makes all the difference in the world? I so prefer the days I get done at 330 to the ones at 400; even though it also means being in a half hour earlier. Id rather have a longer evening at home than sleep in I guess!

  3. Before I went to Colorado State University there was a riot where people were overturning cars and blowing stuff up!! I couldn’t believe it, my parents were like “NO WAY you’re not going there!”

    mannn i wish I could leave work at 3:30…but do you find it hard getting there by 7?!

    • Well when I first started working, I originally thought that there was no way I could get there at 7:30, but I’ve been doing it for almost 3 years, and coming in at 7 really only requires me to set my alarm for 15 min earlier. It’s not so bad!

  4. Wow…that is quite the riot…I haven’t ever really experienced anything like that!

  5. I would love to work those times!! I work 8-5 and it sucks!!

    And yes, that riot is crazy–good thing you went there a few years earlier!

  6. Aaahhh college! I have friends who went to JMU and loved it! I went to UMass Amherst and there was crazy rioting, especially when the Red Sox went to the World Series, good Lord! I am really sad when partying gets destructive. I just loved the outdoor parties and the enormous feeling of cameraderie, but not the damage!

    I hope that PT starts making a real difference. It’s a slow process, but I bet it will be beneficial!

    Have a great day, love!

    • I loved JMU sooooooo much. Oh I can imagine the Red Sox rioting, geez. To me there is nothing better than an outdoor party, such a shame this one turned sour. Have a great day!

  7. yikes that sounds like a crazy event. i don’t understand why people get so out of control sometimes. it’s disheartening. 😦

    hope you have a great tuesday!

    • I know, chances are majority of people were just looking to have a nice fun day, and then all that happens, so sad. You have a great day also!

  8. Wow that’s crazy about the riot!!!
    Oh PT.. what I have to look forward to. I’m sure that you are making progress, even if it’s not noticeable yet!

  9. I feel so much closer to you knowing how many times you hit the can on Monday.

    That riot is depressing. Young people and alcohol can be a really, really dangerous combination, especially where there is a shitload of both. A Bacchanalian festival is sometimes just inches away from being a total disaster. Why can’t we all just drink outside in peace?!

    • Hahaha TMI? Yeah it really made me sad to think that there are such idiots coming out of that school now. I would very much just like to sit and chill and maybe play some frizbeer.

  10. Crazy about the riots. That type of thing always freaks me out.

    Its good to know how many times you peed yesterday. So far today Im at 3. I pee alot. Thought you might want to know!! 🙂

  11. Sorry about the soreness. Hopefully you’re getting stronger, and just can’t necessarily feel it yet.

    I used to always get random drunken injuries, haha. Oh wait, I still do!

    That riot is crazy!

  12. WOW! College kids today. I miss big college block parties…ok, i miss college. sigh.

  13. holy crap! that happened once at a dave matthews concert and it was SOOOO scary. bottles going everywhere.
    who passes up cupcakes? just sayin.
