I’ve been listening to miscellaneous J-rock for two solid days now thanks to Last.fm and the FLCL station. It’s oddly satisfying.
Had every intention of being anti-social over the weekend, but the universe was having none of that, and threw a social event at me every night. Ran into a ton of people at the gym Friday, met my neighbors two doors up due to an extreme coincidence on Saturday, and spent half the day on the balcony of a bar in Wollomolloo on Sunday, which was quite nice. So, so much for being a social shut-in.
I did however sleep like crap over the weekend, especially Friday when I woke up at 5AM to what sounded like a box of beer bottles being thrown through a window and a bunch of shouting, and got up to see a truck on its side directly outside my balcony and another car slightly crumpled against a tree. After making sure the cops arrived and nobody needed help, I somehow managed to get to sleep a while later even with red and blue lights strobing on my curtains.
The weekdays meantime have been increasingly monotonous. The upside is I’ve been going to the gym again with increasing regularity, and I’m working on scheduling more trips to satisfy my need for wanderlust.
I’m a bit stuck on my next NZ trip update. Not so much trying to remember it, but because there’s so much I want to write, but at the same time it’s a lot of work to get it all out. I’m torn between taking the time to write a virtual book or keeping it more… succinct. I think I need to decide who exactly I’m writing for at this point.
