Ever Have One Of Those "Blah" Days?

Seriously, that's the only way to describe how I've been feeling since I posted last. No, this isn't one of those over-dramatic teen angst spells like I wrote about in "Bad Few Days" (is that your sighs of relief I hear? ;-) I'm not feeling unhappy or particularly anxious. I'm just...blah. Y'know? I mean, I'm usually a pretty upbeat person: early-to-bed (which, in college, usually translates to 12:30 AM), early-to-rise (again, in college time that's 9:30 AM), energetic, social, goofy, just-might-break-out-into-a-showtune-at-any-random-moment kind of guy.

But not recently. I don't think I've spoken more than two sentences to anyone all day (of course, no one's exactly tried to engage me in conversation, but whatev). I've been pretty scatterbrained in class, haven't been really motivated to, y'know, do stuff (like write in my newest novel perhaps? Man that thing is getting neglected), and I don't even feel very enthused about the weather (it's gorgeous, by the way, and usually I'd be begging someone to go take a bike-ride with me right about now but...nope, no motivation).

Oh well, it's just a little funk ;-) Perhaps it's the beginning symptoms of the cold that's been spreading around the dorm faster than kudzu. Gosh I hope not. I hate being sick at home; I can't imagine how it would be if I'm sick here.

Either way, tonight should be helpful. There's a "fancy dinner night" that someone organized for our floor, so everyone's going to go to an "expensive" seafood restaurant ("expensive" meaning expensive for college kids--we might have to pay $15-$20 a piece). It's actually a pretty nice restaurant, or so I've heard. It's on a pier and overlooks the ocean, so you can't do much more in the way of atmosphere, in my opinion. All the girls are excited and some have used it as an opportunity to buy new dresses (or at least ask me about which dresses they should wear--yep, I haven't done much to break that stereotype, but it's not my fault if I have good fashion sense ;-) And basically the guys are trying to figure out if jeans can be incorporated into "dress attire," to which I give a resounding NO!

Oh well, I'm looking forward to it. Food, friends, and fun: how can I feel "blah" after that? Peace y'all.
