The Mundane Details

This day has felt long and somewhat purposeless. It began with chapel releasing late, necessitating a rush to my 10:40 precept. Given that Friday is the day we have communion, I'm guessing lateness will be a pattern. Maybe I should start sitting near the back.

After lunch, I went to Wachovia to open a new bank account with the extra money from my student loans. I'm not going to be able to pay off my credit card balance right away, but I won't miss any car payments before my next loan disbursement. Finding the bank branch was quite a task and dealing with the "Financial Specialist" was a little too reminiscent of my days at M&T...

Immediately upon returning, I realized I was late for flag football practice. That's right, folks, these seminarians are pretty serious about their flag football. The rules are "modified." Maybe I'll write more about that later. It's interesting. I went in search of this practice and found two guys from the team tossing a ball around on the quad because the practice field was overrun with ultimate frisbee players.

Back to my room I came, with the intention of doing something productive. Instead, I spent an hour and a half catching up on blogs. I was especially glad to see that Shotsnaps was updated. I love all the pictures of that beautiful little family.

Around 5, I again went in search of our flag football team, PC Load Letter, but alas, the ultimate frisbee crowd was still dominating the field. So I oh-so-smoothly pretended to be on a walk rather than going to any specific destination. ...if nothing else, at least I got a little exercise.

Then, the plan was to eat dinner then head to the 'bucks (Starbucks for all you The Office virgins) in order to cheer Susan on. I got caught up in conversation with several colleagues (haha...sounds so adult-like) and missed Margaret and Megan's departure.

The plan for tonight is to go out for beers and then attend about eight gagillion parties. Okay, two parties. We'll see how that goes. Maybe I should just give up on the idea of plans or let other people make plans for me...
