summer ends soon!

time to admit its a sinus infection. gross. been playing phone tag with the nurses, its a pain they can't just agree w/me over the phone and prescribe something. internet seems to say they never know if its going to respond to antibiotics or not. last time i had one it was really bad so i went to the emergency room and they just gave me antibiotics. mucinex is helping b/c i don't have a fever. was grumpy after taking the T to work for 4 days so went back to biking today. had to take it a little easier. at least my knees have recovered. they were getting cranky.

its crunch time at work. trying to get everything ready for the semester. so it'd be nice if my head was clear. unfortunately not going to be the case.

i'm heading to CT two times this month. its the mom's birthday so i always head home for that & 2 of the college entourage are getting married so i'll be heading back for that at the end of the month. the bf is working a lot recently, looks like its tiring. at least i (usually) don't need extra hours to get things done.

actually crisp outside today... summer is ending and i always feel like i didn't get to the beach enough. but it will be back to 90s by the end of the week so i can still get some time in :)

i also want to get out and play with my new camera lenses. but when i'm not feeling 100% i usually just want to nap or laze out after i make it through work.

i've been feeling like i don't ever want to listen to music because it doesn't sound good on my stereo for a long time. recently one of the speakers got really quiet and it sounded even worse. so i spent a while looking online for a replacement and i couldn't find a sub $250 setup that had good reviews for sound & build quality and the right size to fit on my bookshelf where the old one had been. and i had just gotten a new sound system last year for my tv that was $300 (my parents paid half as a birthday gift). so i just went to goodwill and spent $20 on a 5 disc changer that just hooks up to my tv sound system. i thought that was a little overpriced for something from 12 years ago but its a sony and has the optical connector. now its sounding decent. but i only have one optical input on my system so i have to choose whether the music gets it or the movies/tv. hmmm... i doubt i can even notice the difference. its not as good as if i had a full surround sound setup, since i only have a soundbar and subwoofer but its way easier and i didn't want to run wires and wireless is even more expensive. just hope i don't wear this system out too fast! wonder if that is realistic.
