Plano: Day 12
I did a whole lot of nothing today. I went to Best Buy this morning to get an ethernet to USB adapter, so I could put TiVo on my network until it downloads the drivers it needs to use the wireless adapter I bought. While I was at Best Buy, one of the employees said, "Man, we need to get you a special discount or something... you're in here all the time!" I replied, "I just moved here from Florida and it seems like I need something else every day: a cable, an adapter, a GameCube, whatever." Anyway, I realized I'm in there entirely too much if employees are starting to recognize me. But, I'll have to be in there again in a few day anyway to take back the little ethernet to USB adapter, so I guess they'll be seein' a little more of me.
I'm not sure what's up, but this transition hasn't been as difficult as I'd expected. The first couple days were rough, but not even as rough as I thought they'd be. Then, I guess I just got so busy I didn't really have time to think about transitions and who I missed and what was going on in Florida. Anyway, I'm expecting it to hit me pretty soon, so my weblog will probably become bogged down with flowery rhetoric and depressing psychobabble. Fortunately, I've got enough stuff to do to keep me busy for a while.
I woke up at 8:30 this morning, even though I went to sleep at about 4 last night. So, I took a nap this afternoon, but I'm still tired. I think it was that I had caffeine with dinner, but I'm not sure. Anyway, I figure since I'm tired already, I might as well go ahead and get to sleep, so I don't have another ridiculously late night. I think one of the most difficult things about my transition so far is adjusting my sleeping patterns. I have the hardest time getting up at 7 am, but I can't seem to go to sleep before midnight (usually closer to 12:30). Something's gotta' give.
