Rationally, I know it hasn't been that long since the last time I just hung out with friends and didn't do much of anything, certainly nothing productive. But that's just what I did tonight, and it felt like forever since the last time I had a night like this. Nothing particularly remarkable happened. But I had homework to do and should have made an early night of it, and instead I stayed too late at a grad student mixer and drank about one more beer than I should have and went out to dinner with friends afterwards. Spent time with people I care about. And it felt good. Better than a lot of other things have lately. Maybe that's what I've been missing.
