I didn't feel good enough to face the cold the snow and the dark all at once today so I stayed home from work. I can do two of those three any day - sick, not sick, whatever - I can face them even if I've missed sleep or whatever. All three are too many strikes though - and I stayed home.

Once it was light I went down the street to get some supplies & medicines and I felt, I don't know - weirdly optimistic and adventurous. Like - I can go somewhere else! I should travel around and have a time - see something. Or do a thing you don't normally do.

But then I didn't because I don't have the most money just now and I don't even know. What am I gonna do? Ride around on the bus to a place? CLV - I've seen you all the way. Inside & out upside & down. I feel like... I can without fear of contradiction say that I've been to a lot of the city. I've ridden better than 70% of the bus lines, all the trains and been to every station. I've gone to every building at CSU - ever building at Public Square, a bunch of buildings downtown I wasn't even really supposed to go to - I've been all around this town - I've seen a lot of it.

I mean - hyperbole - for sure - there's probably 98% of the landmass that I've never actually touched - a bunch of roads I've never been down - but. So these are all the places I can possibly go on the RTA - and I've been to all of them more or less - check it out:
Bay Village – Been to several times
Beachwood – Go often, Kissed a Girl from there
Bedford – Used to go often, Kissed a girl from there
Bedford Heights – I’ve been there a bunch

Middleburg Heights – been there often, went to a UFOlogist meeting hosted by a middle-school friend of mine. They meet at a hotel there.
Moreland Hills – Unless you live there I don’t think there’s a reason to go there ever – maybe you’d pass through if you were going from Euclid to Chagrin falls? That’s the experience I had there.
Newburgh Heights – I used to go there a lot – for no real reason except that it’s kind of optimally situated on 77 if you wanna go get gas & snacks? There’s not much to speak of there – but I like their town hall. Also – I had a war with this Ingress dude about it – it’s his base.

Kissed a girl from there.

Pepper Pike – Whatever, Yes- it’s a pike, there’s fuckall there if you don’t live there.
