I've been really angry and my only possible explanation is that it's something to do with the holiday season. There is a lot of stress that comes with trying to squeeze in a visit to everyone in my completely divorced (grandparents and parents) family, plus in-laws. Then there's the fact that I'm a gay supporting liberal who voted for that black guy in the White House, making the rounds in rural north Texas and Oklahoma. It's not really my scene. And for the sake of family relations, I keep tight lipped about my political leanings.
But my problems are stupid, and in an effort to pull my head out of my own self centered ass I joined a running group. A running charity, actually. It's called Back On My Feet, and although I've known about them for years, I finally live close enough to a chapter to join in. Basically, through running, homeless people gain confidence and a positive self image. They also receive job training. I'm pretty excited to be a part of it, plus hopefully I'll make a new running friend!
Tomorrow is my first day to wake up at 4:30 and meet the group downtown. Wish me luck. It's gonna be soooooo cold and early!
