Wow, the comments on my Valentine’s Day entry were really fascinating reads, and I appreciate the effort you guys put into them! Just in case it came across that I hate my family, I’ll clarify that I don’t — in fact they’re generally pretty supportive. We don’t necessarily get along as much as we should, but my parents are generally quite good to me. I feel like an immature teen now, but that’s fine; I am one. I mainly just get the feeling that they don’t understand me, and I’m not really what they (well, my father, anyway) “wanted” , but who really knows.
Also, I’m going to take the fact that I reminded someone of Dexter, as a compliment. And! To anyone who said (500) Days of Summer is good? You are totally right.
So! Today’s topic: I started running today. It wasn’t that fun, but I think I’ll attempt it maybe twice a week. There’s a big park/oval right near my house, so armed with an iPod and earphones, I walked to the park where I alternated between running/jogging and walking for about 20 minutes, whilst sussing out where the drinking fountains were (I found two).
I encountered a few problems. Ideally, it would play out like this:
- I’d have lighter/shorter shorts that I don’t have to wear a belt with. I might buy a pair for running.
- I’d have a lighter/smaller iPod. Although I’m not actually going to buy a new one when I have a perfectly-functioning one.
- The temperature would’ve been lower than 27°C.
But, of course, I managed, and will hopefully enjoy it more in the future
