So, what do you do for fun?

I'm taking a new approach with my life, and that is trying out new things, and just exploring different ideas and adventures and going places I would normally just be like nah, not today and just well, keeping myself busy. Heres a little rundown of my recent ventures.

First off, this past friday night (yesterday) Kate, Steph, and I went to New Brunswick to a little mini-film festival that was taking place on the Rutgers Campus. The main reason I wanted to go was because a good friend of mine, whom I only see about once every year or two (give or take the three years he lived in africa and whatnot), well he had a film that was going to be shown at this festival. I also had another friend of mine from college meet us there, so it was really cool cause I got to see my friends movie while visiting with a couple old friends as well. I must say, I FREAKIN LOVED THE MOVIE!!! I am making it a goal to go see all his films because this is his second one and he has done great on both so far so I'm sure I will like them all. Another reason for the trip to New Brunswick was because Kate and John are moving to the area today so I thought it would be cool to get to see their apartment.

Alright, so on to some other things I have been doing lately. I have taken this big interest in like art, like drawing and painting and things like that. the only problem with that is, I DONT HAVE AN ARTISTIC BONE IN MY BODY, unless you consider photography being artistic, and if so thats the extent of my abilities. Right now I'm working on a self portrait and I must say its like SO hilarious, and doesn't look a damn thing like me. I think I am going to try and get it all scanned when I'm done and put it online here so we can all get a nice laugh.

Finally, I am going to be working on my scrapbook/diary type things like I used to do in the past. For some reason I feel the need to put my words along with photographs in a book for someone to read in the future. I don't know if it would want to be read by anyone, but It's just something that is important to me, and for some reason I feel like it would be good to have...although I haven't figured out why yet.

Oh, I said finally when really that wasn't the last thing. The last new thing I have been doing is reading. SHOCKING RIGHT??? But yes, I haven't forgotten how to read. I am reading a book that I had gotten in college for a class and never really read the whole thing, except what I needed to in order to pass the class. I can't quite explain my thinking on this either, but it bothers me that I took so much information into my brain during my college years, and the majority of it I feel like I have forgotten. And then the other stuff I feel like I didn't take the time to really comprehend, but just crammed all the info in my head to ace the test.

So, let's see how long this whole new phase I'm going through lasts...By the way, here is some disturbing news, according to the test you can take on stephs blog, I am like severly depressed (i think that was the words) and possibly possessing bipolar tendencies. Interesting, cause I never freakin knew. But aren't we all a little bipolar sometimes?

What book are you reading? I started taking that test from Steph's blog but got tired of it. I know I can be depressed. I know how to handle the depression thanks to my psych courses. So I just quit after the first few questions of the test online. F it.

I wanna see the art btw! And if you feel like coming up to hang out, as I've said before, you're very welcome to! So lemme know. I can look for things in the area that'd be worth going to do/see to make it more interesting than just our apartment and cats ;-).

of course i will come hang out. it might not be as frequently as when you were here, but it will still happen.

as for the art, im going to try and like have it scanned and put some stuff up online, just cause i think it would bring laughter into our lives. i drew a pic of a tree tonight, it was kinda cool, but like nothing like oh my god. its in black and white. i went out and got some more art supplies today so we will see what i produce in the future here.

I think what you're not understanding about the test is the mania half of it. Its not just about going from periods of depression and back again, its more like an insanely high happiness that just doesn't seem to fit the situation. Its also kinda like having ADHD for a short period. I guess the questions were a bit vague though, and it is kinda hard to really understand what you're looking for unless you know. I dunno. I'm just glad I can finally post comments again...
