Last night I went roller blading for what would have been the first time in a decade if you didn't count the day before. It was my first time ever at a rink. I've always used full safety gear in the past: knee pads, elbow pads, wrist guards, helmet. When I got to the rink, no one was wearing any protective anything. No helmets, not even any wrist guards in sight. Most people were even wearing shorts! I was older than most of the kids on the rink, so I was already self-concious, but once I looked around, I seriously considered not putting on any of my gear. I was paralyzed with thought for a few minutes, while looking around for my friend I was meeting. Agonizingly, I decided to at least put on knee pads. After I had already put my skates on, of course. *groan* As soon as I started gearing up, a teen girl standing on the inside of the rink (big no-no by the way) told her friend "I need what she has, knee pads!" I beamed up at her from my bench. We exchanged patter about "padding" where they don't manufacture protective equipment for, then she skated off. Vindicated, I finished donning my gear and prepared to get rolling. When my friend arrived, he gave me this look like I was crazy. I'm glad I decided not to wear my helmet! After almost flipping over the wall (twice!) I was very glad I decided to not care about looking like a doofus in front of a building full of teens.

I know I haven't written in forever but this is the first thing I've felt compelled to write about publicly in a long time. It was weird realizing that I could still care about what others thought of me, as much as I claim the opposite.

I just adopted a Jersey Wooly named Glitter from my local humane society. She's adorable and doesn't like cauliflower, just like her mom. :D

Also, I'm totally up for planning the HTHS reunion as long as I have help.

(I have sooo not posted here in forever. blog.threadmangler.com - not that I post there much either haha)

So, I really don't write here anymore. I've started a written journal again, and my new blog (which I still don't really update) is at http://blog.threadmangler.com if you have any interest.

Anyone interested in a 5 year High Tech reunion? I'm not sure if anyone's planning it yet....

Oh, and Happy Belated St. Patrick's Day.

Or rather, ice. RIT had an ice storm this morning, therefore winning everyone a day off, which never happens. This is the first time in four years, and the last time before that was another eight. Wowzer. That felt significant enough to me.

Right now, I'm in East Aurora, a town near Buffalo, co-oping at Fisher-Price. It's pretty amazing. I get to be involved in the actual design bit as well as picking up the extra pieces of the full-timer's projects. Not to mention I am always surrounded by cuteness.

I also finally submitted my RA reapplication for next year. I should hopefully get it. Another year of single rooms and no housing costs is exciting indeed. Hope everyone's having a great new year!
