I skipped the college opening celebration today. I was going to go to the ceremony (although I was going to skip mass), but I realized that I didn't know if the theater where we were going to listen to speeches had an easily accessible entrance. I remembered that there were stairs when I was there last time. I am now to the point that I can do stairs, but I have to do them slowly and I try to avoid them. I didn't want to deal with that during a presession.
I hung out here at the dorm for the morning, trying to get homework done and all of that fun stuff. Some of my friends and I were going to meet up and go to the picnic that was supposed to be on the quad. When we found out that it was inside, the food wasn't anything exciting and you apparently had to go to the opening ceremony to get into the picnic, we decided it wasn't worth the wait. We went to Baker's Square and had a lovely lunch. I don't think I've laughed so hard in a while. Stories and light-hearted banter make me very happy. It is really nice to get to laugh and release some stress.
On the way back, we picked up my prescriptions. That was good, because I need to be able to "Celebrex good times", but bad because the co-pays for the drugs were rather expensive. It did help not to have to deal with hopping the bus, though.
Overall, it was a really great time. I'm feeling much happier today.
