I rocked this semester pretty damn hard. Something would have been terribly wrong with me if I had gotten anything less than an A in philosophy. I was worried halfway through the semester.
Subterfuge is one of my favorite pastimes. HAH.
Yesterday was bizarre. I woke up and my left eyelid was not folding correctly. How did I notice? Well, aside from its bizarre appearance, it even felt strange. It still does, actually. It only folds properly into place if I raise my left eyebrow.
Speaking of yesterday, it was fairly amazing, but only after David succeeded in bullying me out of the house at 4 p.m.
We went for a walk around Lake Merced, which is literally just down the street. Truth be told, I haven’t felt much like going out since I’ve moved here, which is why we started out at 4 p.m. instead of earlier. I’ve been quite content sitting in front of my computer writing inane blogs and surfing those damn social networks. Myspace and Facebook are digital intermediaries between making an actual phone call and spending real time with a person. I’ve become quite good at this sort of communication. It’s too damn easy, even though I recognize it is a poor substitute.
But I digress. Along the chain link fence we followed, I found a weathered set of keys hanging at the top. We took a photo of it and moved on.For the majority of our stroll, we remained on the outskirts of the woods, but we eventually found a decent dirt path to explore.
It led us to a thicket of sorts, right against the marshy parts of the lake. I love adventure, but only if I keep my dislike of spiders and their webs at bay. Once I feel that initial prick of fear, I need to leave. Immediately. There are thousands of spiderwebs in forests.
Since David has the balls, he climbed all over everything in search of a tree that jutted out over the water. Most of the trees in this location were growing parallel to the ground.
The three-hour walk only served to heighten my hunger.
It was good exercise and we found some strange stuff. On the other side of the lake, we found another set of keys, as well as a random Masterlock. When we crossed the bridge in the golf course, we noticed a rope floating in the water. Something was obviously tied to one end, as it was being pulled downward.
Many things to investigate later, most likely with a car instead.
One thought on “Things that make the heart beat faster.”
Those are some kick-ass grades. Good work! I never thought of San Francisco as a place for outdoor adventure. Good times. You have to take me there when we go visit you guys.
