You ever feel really depressed and you have no idea why? It's one thing if you know why, and if that's the case, you can reason yourself through it. Today there was no particular reason, and I was just stewing in misery for a couple of hours after I got home from work. When LSD got home, I was a turd for a little while, and then I had to come clean and let her know that I was feeling down. She wasn't feeling sad, just bored, and she said she needed a project. I said she should make us some coasters because we need some coasters around this joint.
I don't really do projects these days, so when I feel like that, I need to drink, run, or write. Tonight I decided to run, and I felt better almost instantly. During this run, along with curing my depression, I came to these revelations:
1. I'm going to run the Oakland Marathon in March. I need another race, and I think it would be cool to represent a city like that. Oak Town!!
2. I don't think I can live anywhere that isn't near a body of water. Right when I got to the lake part of the jog and saw the skyline, everything got better for me.
3. There is one other place where I do my best thinking, but I really don't want to share too much about that part of my day. Who am I kidding, my next post could very well be a Poop Post.
When I got home from the run, LSD was on her computer looking up ideas for the coaster project. I'm a lucky man.
