So I spent the last two days essentially partying. Well, not really. Saturday I did moderately productive things such as paying my cell phone bill and checking my "snail mail" as it's affectionately called.

Then I went to the first meeting of the Ballroom Dance Club. And I enjoyed it immensely since it was dancing. It was a good hour and a half or two hours of physical activity and it was just good clean fun. (Plus, some cute guys. Though none that I really clicked with, and yes I know that is shallow, but at this point I am permitting myself to be shallow). I realized, too, that I am happier as a person when I have dance in my life. Not because I need to go at it hard core all the time or pursue it intensively as I did in high school, but because I need to do something that is physical periodically to keep myself in balance.

So I will have balance this year and that will be good.

And I have many friends and am still adjusting to this concept of having a social life. I am no longer sitting at home waiting for something to happen and trying to figure out what to do with myself. I have friends to see and hang out with and parties to go to and some open invitations. Which means that now, what I have to learn is when to say "no" so that I put my studies in their proper place. Which will happen out of course, naturally.

I did things with friends every day this weekend, and all at the request of friends instead of my own request. On Friday I hung out with people in New Jersey, on Saturday I went out for Chinese food with Katie and then stayed at her dorm and today I went to a small party and left early to come home and go out with Seton and his suitemate. And in the midst of all of that I had a 45 - minute conversation with my mom which was cut short when I lost patience with my cell service. Which means I will have to try to call her tomorrow so that we can finish it because I know that she needs me and needs someone to just listen to her sometimes. And she can talk to me about things that she can't talk to other people about.

I stayed up till 3 am talking to Katie. We are becoming good friends and I'm glad because I need a friend like her and it makes me happy that I have one.
