ive always had low energy. now that im not sending 99% of it into work, i find myself staying longer at social events. i had a beer with a friend on friday and it got to be 10pm and we had been there for a couple hours.  i was thinking hey im having fun. i want to stay. just then a cute young girl sat next to me and my friend left, so i talked with her for a while.

i just got back from swing dance and i usually stay for the lesson and maybe a bit after that. 8:30 or so. i stayed until 9:20 before getting tired and a bit discouraged by how stiff i still feel on the floor. i walk to the dance hall and back and it was a beautiful evening.
