DAY 11

TODAY I RAN 10 MILES, OR CLOSE ENOUGH. IT'S BEEN A VERY LONG TIME SINCE I CRACKED DOUBLE DIGITS AND IT FEELS GOOD; I'M IN PAIN BUT IT FEELS GOOD. IT ALREADY FEELS LIKE I'M SO FAR AWAY FROM THE DAYS OF NOTHING BUT I'M REALLY NOT THAT FAR. I KNOW I'M NOT THAT FAR. IN RELATED NEWS, I NOW OWN WEIGHTLOSSSSSS.WORDPRESS.COM. I THINK THAT'S GONNA BE SOMEWHAT SATIRICAL WHEN I FINALLY GET IT SET UP BUT I TRULY BELIEVE SELF-WORTH, IN WHATEVER FORM ONE CAN FIND, GOES A LONG WAY IN TERMS OF SELF-REALIZATION, ACCOMPLISHING GOALS, ETC. (IT'S ALSO MY FIRST ADVENTURE IN WORDPRESS BTW.) TODAY I LISTENED TO THE ENTIRE DOUBLE RECORD, ABATTOIR BLUES/THE LYRE OF ORPHEUS BY NICK CAVE & THE BAD SEEDS. I HADN'T LISTENED TO NICK CAVE IN A LONG TIME, AND I'M NOT SURE I'VE EVER LISTENED TO THAT RECORD START TO FINISH. IT'S A SOLID ALBUM, NOT GREAT; REALLY POWERFUL MOMENTS HERE AND THERE, COUPLED WITH SOME BORING TUNES. LYRICALLY, I PREFER THE WEIRD TO THE HEADY, THOUGH AT TIMES, CAVE IS CERTAINLY DABBLING IN BOTH SIMULTANEOUSLY. I ALSO HAD TIME TO LISTEN TO A PORTION OF THE VERY UNDERRATED RYAN ADAMS PROJECT ORION. JESUS THAT IS A FUN ALBUM. TODAY I WATCHED THE END OF THE RUTGERS-DEPAUL BASKETBALL GAME ON MY PHONE. YOU CAN SEE ME DOING THIS IN THE ABOVE VIDEO STARTING AT ~7:30. TODAY I TOOK LIKE 6 PICTURES; HERE'S ONE AND HERE'S ANOTHER. I ALSO TOOK 2 TINY VIDEOS. TODAY IS ALSO NOTABLE BECAUSE THE SOUNDTRACK IS NOT A DRONE BUT RATHER A MIND-NUMBINGLY, REPETITIVE MELODY FOR 80+ MINUTES.
