Giardia

It looks like Kyle, Geoff and myself all brought back a little giardia with us. What a terrible, terrible parasite. I'm not too sure how we got it since we filtered all our water. We must have got it from one of the places where we went swimming. I went to the doctor yesterday and got started on some medication to get rid of this thing. Unfortunately, I can't drink while I'm on the medication, otherwise I will get "deathly ill." Bummer, since this is my last weekend of freedom. The doctor even said I should wait 3 days after I finish the prescription before drinking. At least I'll be cured (hopefully) by the first day of class.

That's it. I'm really bored

Last Weekend of Freedom

So classes start on Wednesday. I'm all scheduled and ready to go. Being bored, unemployed and poor is starting to
wear me out. I feel a little homesick and I occasionally wonder what the hell I'm doing in Texas. What brought me here in the first place? First-rate academics??? I don't know. I doubt I'll have too many concerns once school starts, especially come January and it's grey and icy in Ohio and 65 in Austin. Until then, I need to relax and enjoy myself.

I think I could be the most fickle and indecisive person. Well, maybe not indecisive. I can make decisions, I just end up wondering if I made the right one. I guess that's the way it goes. I'll figure it all out, eventually.

Back Home
Well, we eventually made it back to Austin after the 18 hour drive from AZ. All went well, minus Geoff's $280 speeding ticket. Damn those west Texas po with nothing else to do at 3 am. We got back and spent the day drinking poolside. Took the boys to County Line for some authentic Texas BBQ and went out on 6th street. Fun was had by all.

Here I am, dropped every one at the airport and now it's back to life. I really needed this trip. I was going a little crazy with boredom. I also came to some realizations out west. I'm about to start a new chapter in my life, which is a little scary, but life is so good right now and I'm sure it will continue to be amazing. I've learned that I can't keep beating myself up for mistakes I've made in the past. I've done some stupid shit, but it's done now. I can't hang onto my regrets forever. That will drive me nuts. Instead, I'm learning to let go of things and learn from my mistakes. I'm feeling great and I'm ready for school to start. I love where I'm living. I have the best friends. I'm not too sure where I'm heading, but I'm gonna get there eventually. Life is grand.
