So today I walked around for six hours. I got lost in some woods, saw a snake, ignored a sign saying a bridge was damaged and got semi-stuck in a gorge because it was “destroyed” rather than “damaged.”
Finally tried Ramen Tatsu-Ya, which means the only place in Austin I wanted to try before moving here but haven’t is Gordoughs. I’ve found other places I want to try since but that’s a different thing.
All told that six hours has me wiped, though, so I’m going to relax before my first day at the new job tomorrow.
So today, as I’ve decided last week, is adventure day 2. I’m going to do these on Sundays for as long as I can, both for a bit of extra calorie burn and just for fun.
It’s cloudy, but warm so I don’t think I’ll have weather problems. My umbrella will stay in the backpack just in case.
I’m going to do a bit of writing, call my parents and head out. I encourage anyone not living in a winter wasteland (I understand that omits a lot of people, sorry) to get out and see what’s out there today. You never know what you’ll find.
Although I may have to not go out to eat, though. I have a check incoming, the penultimate one from my previous job but I’m not sure when. Could be any day from Monday to March, and since I have no way of knowing or influencing that I want to be very careful until it comes since I do need at least some money for this upcoming week.
Mostly to get an Uber to a job interview, but hey, I still need it.
So today was the Austin marathon and half-marathon. Since Josh Flanagan of Rooster Teeth was running it and said he would have a meetup afterwards I was going to head to that after the gym. It was at a cafe that was downtown, but when I searched it on Google Maps I was sent to a different one. It wasn’t that far, but it my progress was impeded by the marathon so I had to wander around.
After I found out it was the wrong one I shifted gears to just exploring. I left my apartment at 8AM and got back at 1PM, and I think I’m going to make a Sunday adventure a regular thing. Really burned me out but I might try to head to 6th, maybe. Not sure about that but I’ll figure it out.
Hope y’all had a great weekend! I did make a poem though about my least favorite holiday, though, just bear in mind it’s kind of brutal:
“Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
I’m single on Valentine’s Day again,
Go fuck yourself.”
