I wonder...

Sometimes I wonder about my sanity. I mean really, what was I thinking last night? Going to a movie at 7:30 before doing any of my readings, quizzes OR going for my nightly run. Why did I do this? Because Toffer asked me to. Toffer is a good friend of mine from the BYU Ballroom Team. He called me, out of the blue, last night to see if I would go to Vantage Point with him at the dollar theater. I didn't even think twice.

"Of course I will go with you," I tell him.

"Great," he says, "I'll pick you up in 40 minutes."

Forty minutes. Yikes. I raced home on my bike, eat a sandwich, watched the last 25 minutes of Gilmore Girls, and then spruced myself up and then it came. knock. knock. knock. Toffer was here! Miracles of miracles, I was ready!! Off we went to the Festival Cinemas Dollar Theater.

The last time I remember going to this theater was with my now married friend Sky Captain. Yeah, remember this date/adventure? As we walked up to the theater all the memories of that night came flooding back. However, Toffer is cooler than Sky Captain. He opened every. single. door for me, paid for my ticket (I don't care if it was only a dollar), and was a perfect gentleman all night long. He rocks.

Anyways, back to the movie. It was AWESOME. I did start to get frustrated at one point when I wanted to know the end of the story but we had to rewind to another view point, but it was a very well done movie. Quite intense.

After the movie, Toffer took me home, walked me to the door, and then as I went inside I realized all the things I had pushed to the side. I kind of started to panic just a bit. I went and talked to Roommate A, my running buddy, and we decided to still go for a run, but shorter than Monday's run. Off we went. I did much better last night compared to Tuesday night. Go me. Then I settled down, took my quiz and then read the books I needed to for Kinesiology, AND I was in bed by 11:00pm. I am the coolest. So even though I wonder about my sanity and the decisions I make, it all works out in the end.

See, to me, it is perfectly ok to go to a movie before doing homework or other chores. The mistake was in the 25 minutes of Gilmore Girls. Time black holes like Gilmore girls are the true source for bad grades and general depression in this life.

I'm mostly kidding.
