(Got Ancient Mars | The Zolas on repeat, man)
So I’m sitting in the waiting area.
Next to me is this peppy mom and her 4? 5? year-old son who’s also jonesin’ for a haircut. A few minutes pass, we get called up, my haircut happens. As I head up out of the barber chair and to the cash register to pay, the kid’s mom looks up from her magazine and goes, “looks good, buddy!” I’m kinda confused by this first-time interaction but reply with a reflexive “thanks!” just before my neural circuitry aligns or whatever and I realize that she’s actually talking to her son who had also just finished his haircut and was following behind me. Her eyes shift from him to me and my brain immediately starts producing the chemical that makes u feel real dum. I didn’t know how to verbally recover outside an exhaled “oh/woops” so I just avoided eye contact and paid my $14—–which doubly sucks because the place I went to used to charge only $8 per haircut for the longest time and they had just changed it and overall it was a very flustering 45 seconds.
Anyway that was an anecdote I hope you liked that anecdote.
Two snow days means it’s been a good semester so far. I can actually understand my math TA’s accent, bioengineering is less quantitative than last semester, my physiology professor is grumpy and badass and has a ponytail, health care management has been surprisingly interesting, and MATLAB is what it is (a numerical computing environment and fourth-generation programming language!!!). Things I want to do through May:
- blog more, both here and yonder the button
- make some more art posters and stickers
- up the GPA, because life and duh
- finish the National Pokédex
- not sleep at weird times
Things I am excited about right now:
- that big picture of Mars ↑
- my vis arts res program acceptance (!!!)
- having a hexaperfect IV Gyarados
- not having any homework
- cinnamon roasted almonds
