Sometimes, when I’m alone and feeling bored or at a loss of what to do with my time, I play a little game I like to call “What could I be doing if I lived in TC?” I’m playing that game now:
I could go down to the bay and go swimming
I could call my Mom and we could go kayaking
I could call Jenny or Breanna and go for a walk in the woods
I could go say hello to Joani and go swimming
I could meet Katie’s new baby girl
I could call Hannah and we could go for a run
I could ask Matt to take me fishing
I could call Will to see if he wanted to go crash some waves in Empire
(Notice a common thread? These are all free, to boot.)
Obviously when I start to play this game I start to get real pissy and start to whine to myself in my head… but I know that if I lived in TC, I’d be playing the same game about some other place. The grass is always greener, blah blah blah.
But, other times, I think - maybe I wouldn’t do that. Maybe the grass just really is the greenest in Michigan.
I guess I won’t know for a while.
So, tonight, What can I do since I actually live in Cambridge? I can go for a run (alone) and make some dinner (a-lone) and read. Pity me.
