I am sitting at the Southwest gate waiting on a flight in the early part of the morning. I am leaving Los Angeles for Las Vegas. This is the West Coast swing of the “no shoes, no shorts sad-battical life” I am living.
I am late with my blog posts. I know that after scrolling through my page counts. I could blame my lack of posts on a lot of life things (intracontinental travel, going to Vegas, a car accident, a car purchase, running into my decades-old crush again, general alternations between malaise and wonderment).
I am going to blame it on the wonderful joys I have felt over the past few weeks. Being here made me think about all to wonderful things that have happened in my life.
A. I love Brain Bowl, academic team stuff, and general nerd life.
B. I am in a Hall of Fame. Suck it nerds.
C. I have a great menagerie of friends and comrades.
D. And this weekend reminded me that I need to see them more.
E. I love my former academic teammates hard. I even tolerate the ones who broke my heart and my friends’ hearts.
F. I am funny. Who can’t love me?
G. I cant pronounce some words for shit.
H. I know what splendiferous means, and I can use it in a sentence. #winning I am wordsmith.
I. I am always learning and growing. What more can I ask for of this life?
