Word of the day: insipid


Oh my goodness! Today was very dull. It was one of those days were everything irks you – from waking up in the morning to the weather to interacting with people.

For breakfast, I had some peach bread that has been on the counter for a while. I sluggishly dragged myself into class, where the high-pitched droning of my male professor drove me crazy. We leaned about how the Earth moves. Thrilling. Lunch was fun, but then I had to go to class again. Broadcast reporting proved not only boring, but awkward as well. I helped out at the BV for a while, where I found my coworkers half-asleep, recovering from last night. I went up to the second media organization I identify with, and found all the station members the same way. The lights were off, three girls lay on individual couches and the boys were on computers. We were all snippy to each other. After we fought a little bit, Pete cheered me up. He is nice. Then I went to my night class, where I learned about Photoshop for 2 and a half hours.

The thing is (besides the play-by-play I just gave you) that I want everyone to be nice. I want people to give a shit. I want people to stop using me for my car. I want to do more than just go through the movements of a day. I need to do something exciting.

Today was pretty insipid –  lacking flavor, interest or vigor. But tomorrow won’t be. Not if I have any say in what I do.
