My chiropractor might be my new best friend.
How ridiculous is it to just take off to Virginia (again), spend money I don’t have on gas (again), hang out with this group of thru-hikers that I simply can’t get enough of (again), and maybe get some miles in but most likely there will be lots of cheap domestic beer consumed (again)?
I really love backpacking - I really do - but after spending more nights this summer in my sleeping bag than bed and not showering for days, it is nice to feel clean & comfy in my apartment.
But damn, I miss that mountain air tonight
In Virginia. Hostel parties are the best parties, so we’re pulling a 0 today and recovering. I still have 45 miles to hike before I reach my car and I’m supposed to go back to NC tomorrow. I’m not sure I’m going to make it on time. (Time? What is time?)
I just, seriously. Eff this whole job application process. WHERE ARE ALL THE TEACHING JOBS?
(Oh, wait, that’s right, our state doesn’t give a rat’s butt about education anymore)
Trying to get my shit together post-vacation is really, really difficult.
"I find it extremely impossible not to cry when I hear Stevie Nicks’s “Landslide,” especially the lyric: “I’ve been afraid of changing, because I’ve built my life around you.” I think a good test to see if a human is actually a robot/android/cylon is to have them listen to this song lyric and study their reaction. If they don’t cry, you should stab them in the heart. You will find a fusebox."
