Or is it just me?
My first year of being a graduate student is almost over, and I am slowly getting my shit taken care of. I haven't done much at all in the past couple weeks in terms of fun. I was dating this girl for a few weeks but we decided to just be friends, and we've been hanging out a lot lately and now i'm starting to feel those things for her again and it's annoying me because I'm not sure if i should act on it or not (probably not). I don't hang out with nearly anyone that i used to, or anyone at all for that matter (other than the girl). I am a fairly sociable guy, and definitely operate better in life when I participate in many activities with people I enjoy, but when I try to see if those friends want to hang out they are either too busy or just don't want to, and after a few of those it makes you feel like they just don't want to hang out with you. Puh...
My weekends are spent either here in Iowa City or 40 miles away at my parents house doing laundry and feeling stupid for being a 22 year old kid spending the weekend doing laundry at his parents house. I think my mom got used to it and called me this week expecting me to come home this weekend...I had to tell her no...not that I don't need to do laundry (although I do have at least a few weeks in reserve), or want to see my parents, it'sjust...i dunno...I am definitely past the age where going home on weekends often in college is okay. haha.
Ahh well...that is life. One good thing did happen today...one of my more attractive students started flirting with me in the hallway. But I don't want to be one of those TA's who does that (i'll wait till after the class is finished), so I laughed or something and got out of the situation.
So anyway. anyone else in a rut? let's hear your rut saga!
