Wee, I'm updating from work, during my lunch. Today has been, mostly, uneventful. Yesterday was a bit more interesting, however.

The first four hours of my day were filled with meetings. I tend to bring them up as a thumb sore to people around me, but I actually enjoy meetings. Time passes by quickly during them, and I like the social interaction.

Oddly, I noticed an unconscious shake during lunch. This was particularly noticeable while spooning the miso, where my hand would shake to the point of almost spilling it. It was a meek shake, and I had a slightly sickly feeling of weakness. That is, the sort of physical fatigue induced by a cold. But I wasn't sick. I wondered if maybe the long meetings had affected me, or if there was something on my subconscious. I had two cups of coffee that morning, twice the amount of normal, but the second cup was decaf, so it's doubtful that the caffeine was giving me the shakes.

The rest of the day was "normal." Monday nights have turned into "Settlers night" for me, after the Settlers of Catan board game that is played by a bunch of "friends" of mine. It's ironic in that they were originally my roommate's friends but now I spend more time with them than he does.

Ohhhh, that reminds me of another topic I've been meaning to write about.

Recently I've noticed that I've been suffering from a bit of cabin fever. I've been wanting to go out and do stuff, but tend to end up wandering the mall for an hour, as I have no one to go out with and all other activities seem dreadfully dull flying solo. I also don't have much of an inkling as to what there is to do. Perhaps I've been out of the loop too long, or have never actually done much, but the only thing I've managed to come up with is bowling, which Mike doesn't like to do. This begs the question of what kinds of activities people do. That said, this probably the wrong outlet to be asking, as the vast majority of you are likely just as introverted as my current lifestyle is following. Still, I know some of you do certain interesting activities, so maybe it is, indeed, worth asking.

You can always take a tab from the great Lutheran book of boring activities: Potluck. I don't know why, but all my Norwegian friends love potlucks.

Well, if your looking for social activities. I'm typically a big fan of getting friends together to watch and mock old B-rated flicks.

LAN parties.

Hiking (not good if there's snow). Swimming (again, not good if there's snow). Biking (not good if there's snow). . I think I'm starting to realize why people get depressed during long winters.

I wish I spent time with my friends. Graduation can't come soon enough.

But, while I'm throwing away my social life and my friends, I can go ahead and suggest you ask all those peeps if they want to do something, cause they often do. It seems like they've gone bowling on more than one occasion.
