the nerd that I was

I bought a book on a whim at the airport last Friday and re-discovered my nerdy past. I hadn't read a book for pleasure in like five years! Yes– textbooks, dictionaries, peer-reviewed journals, newspaper articles– but a good ol' pointless novel I hadn't picked up in ages…

Well, I've found myself again. My old nerdy nose-stuck-in-a-book self. I got a library card yesterday and drooled over the isles and isles of fiction (a section of the library I ignored for years). I was an hour and a half late to the gym because I kept thinking, just one more page, just one more page…

It's just that once I finished my Master's degree finally, I thought, “I'll NEVER pick up a book again! bua-haha!” Because I was so tired of the papers, the assignments, the reviews, the blah blah blah… but now I'm FREE and I can read whatever the heck I want! bua-haha! I don't understand why it took me so long to get here!

hahaha! im a nerd too! when i went home to san antonio a couple months ago, i spent about 3 hours in the half price book store. theres just SO many books. i wish i had more time to read, but when i graduate (and during the summer) i will definitely go through about a book or 2 a week! we should start a book club! =) hehe

oh and im not COMPLETELY adjusted to my job yet. I just felt good about keeping up with my tables and carrying trays (cuz even though i've waited tables before, we didnt have to carry trays at the old restaurant and that took some getting used to). i definitely have some to learn though (like all the menu items, trying not to forget anything when i open and close, etc).
