I can't even come up with a good title

It's a goddamn perfect day outside right now, so pardon me if I keep this to a few brief hits of wisdom from Das Flenker.

  • I am now officially done with classes at the University of Iowa. It feels good, real good. I've really been done for a little while now, but turned in my last paper today. Now that I'm done, I feel relieved, but not really sure where to go from here. I think this summer is going to be a time of waiting for me, savoring my last few months in Iowa City and preparing for the move south.
  • I still haven't gotten any new running shoes, but there are a few that I'm considering. I like adidas, I always have worn their shoes, so I'm leaning towards a couple of pairs from them. But if anyone has any suggestions or recommendations, I'd be happy to look at others.
  • This time of the year is usually pretty excellent outside, but it always brings about allergies. It sucks. I never suffered from them until about 5 years ago, and then they started hitting me full-force. Watery eyes, sneezing, itchy eyes, nose, and mouth (having the roof of my mouth be itchy is the worst), runny nose, the whole works. Thanks Mom. (my mom had hay fever, but would still help put hay up in the loft when we lived on the farm. At least, she'd help out until she was unable to breathe, at which point she would stop.)

More to come later, I promise. Sorry this post kinda sucks, I can't really focus and I just really want to get outside and do stuff. It's too nice to be staring at a computer screen when I have other options. For those of you stuck at work today, I need to get out and enjoy the weather for you! For all of us!

Dude, congratufreakinlations. Finishing school is both awesome and scary at precisely the same time.

Well done, Flenker... I am most envious of you school completion... What's next for you?

I prefer New Balance shoes to all other athletic shoes, but I have weird feet, so who knows what's best...

I'm so excited for you! Great job!

Move south? How south?

I've always preferred Nikes with my narrow little feet, but I am no athletic shoe expert. I pick based on color.

Congrats! I remember that last day, however, my last day consisted of two finals one at 8 and one at 1:30. And then the next day I graduated. But I did start drinking right after my final at 1:30!! haha!

I'd go with either New Balance or Adidas. I actually wear both at the moment. New Balance are my gym shoes and Adidas are my outdoor running shoes.
