The title of this post may lead you to think that I’ve done something extremely crazy or insane, and I feel like for me, what I’ve done is a bit crazy.
So if you feel like hearing about my day sprinkled with a little bit of crazy, please, feel free to continue reading. Then I’ll make sure to stop my rambling and actually get on with it 😛
It all started with my fantastic idea (read: sarcasm)to go for a morning run. As in a 6 am run. Outside. In the morning. What a stupid idea, but oh well… I’d made up my mind so now I had to do it. So I set my alarm to 5.45 am, so I could be ready to run at around 6 am. (I have to be at school at 8 am and I had to shower too, so I made sure I had plenty of time). I actually ran, only about 1 mile or something, but I was perfectly cool with that. It was a great run too. The sun was about to rise and it was just nice outside. I think I actually enjoyed it enough that I’ll start doing it more often! Something I’d never thought I’d hear myself say: “It’s great to get up a buttwipe o’ clock, so you can go exercising”. (Maybe I didn’t exactly use those words but yes, I’ve said it).
But that wasn’t the only crazy thing I did. Every Tuesday I go to a writers class for 2 hours, so I did so again today. I felt extremely uncomfortable almost the entire time, and I could just feel my face heat up and just stay that way. It was worse than usual, but I guess it was just the heat that triggered me. (I have like a bit of a social issue, so I usually feel uncomfortable in large crowds or in rooms with people I don’t really know, and heat is mostly the thing that makes me a bit panicky).
I got so bad that I seriously thought about just saying that I had to leave earlier, and then go 45 min before it ended. I didn’t though, and I’m glad I didn’t. When we ended I was so ready to just get out of there. Instead I ended up asking the girl next to me what she was reading, because I thought I recognized the cover of the book. We had a tiny conversation and it actually felt great.
When I was waiting at the train station for the train to arrive, two girls from the class, the one with the book and her friend, were on their way to the metro. They saw me standing there and then they waved at me, yelling ‘see you next time’. It might seem a bit weird but I just couldn’t stop smiling about it. They probably didn’t know that it held any significance to me, but it did.
I’m just glad that there’s some people out there in the world who are a bit more extroverted and social than me, that can push me to get out of my comfort zone.
That was my day. I hope you had a great one too! Let me know what kind of crazy shit you’ve done today.
