“We’ve all been eating cake, and thought “you know what this needs? Booze.’”
Ok, so holy s***, I almost missed the bus. I kid you not. Had it not been for a timely phone call from my Mom (completely premeditated), I would still be sleeping on my buddy’s couch. This isn’t really any of my doing (ok, it pretty much is, but I’m gonna try and fight my way out of this). I mean I set my alarm clock on my cellie, but apparently, that’s not really an effective use for getting me up. It’s worked before, but when I really need it, not so much.
So yesterday was the start of the “class” (I am fully aware that anytime I call this a class, there’s going to be a silent mock laughter going on…just trying to attempt to keep this legitimate, don’t mind me). Anyway, we toured the minor league park in
I’m sitting up front on the bus, which I’m immediately regretting doing. See, I have the whole “airplane” mentality going on, where I’m feeling like “the closer I sit to the front, the less people I have to deal with getting on/leaving.” But I mean…it’s a bus. What was I thinking? Oh well, life’s much too short for regrets. I’m also realizing that I’m gonna be on this thing for the next two weeks. No complaints, but it’s going to take some adjusting on my part. Here’s another thing: I know it’s early, but how can people be sleeping already? I’m so juiced right now (also in part because when I woke up exceptionally late, my heart started racing pretty quick). I mean, it’s baseball! Actually, they may have the right idea considering it is dollar beer day at the game today (oh did I mention drinking is allowed?...yeah, just throwing out that little tidbit…this is what college should be!...everyone else missed the bus entirely; I mean if you want to get my attention, mention baseball and beer…works every time). Also, when you consider what kind of schedule we have going on, resting up is probably the smart move. However, I’ve never been accused of being smart, so I’m going to stay up for a little while at least.
So this is completely non-trip related, but I mean, I had to share this with you. Yesterday, I went to the State Championship soccer match for
Alright, well that’s the report from the bus. I’ll keep you posted on how everything goes today. Also, I’m hoping to meet Gabe Kapler. That would be exceptionally tight. Alright, take it easy everyone. Peace.
