what time do you usually go to bed?
10:30ish sometimes 4
I am writing a paper on Tolkien’s The Hobbit and just managed to craft a sentence that remarked upon Smaug the dragon’s confidence in his own deductive skills. HA.
If my TA notices, she will be my new favorite person.
one of the (many) irritating things about existential crises is that they could care less about convenient timing
Questions not to ask when you are starting a paper:
-Do I really care?
-Does this matter in the long run?
-Is there anything I could be doing right now that is more fulfilling for me?
-How tired am I?
-What is the meaning of life?
-Am I going to value this assignment later in my life?
-Is this making the world around me a better place?
-Do I really care?
The head of a company survived 9/11 because
His son started kindergarten.
Another fellow was alive because it was
His turn to bring donuts.
One woman was late because her
Alarm clock didn’t go off in time.
One was late because of being stuck on the NJ Turnpike
Because of an auto accident.
One of them
Missed his bus.
One spilled food on her clothes and had to take
Time to change.
Car wouldn’t start.
Get a taxi.
The one that struck me was the man
Who put on a new pair of shoes that morning,
Took the various means to get to work but before.
He got there, he developed a blister on his foot.
He stopped at a drugstore to buy a Band-Aid.
That is why he is alive today..
Now when I am
Stuck in traffic,
Miss an elevator,
Turn back to answer a ringing telephone…
All the little things that annoy me,
I think to myself,
This is exactly where
I’m meant to be
At this very moment
Valentine’s Day Plans, 2014:
-Buying a rose for my lover (ha that’s a rather grand word) and delivering it as a surprise on his doorstep (because, screw traditional gender roles)
-Mailing a credit card bill (because, ho hum, life goes on)
-Meandering around with free hugs
(not that these are usually conditional)
and a box of free delicious chocolate truffles
(…I’m gonna be honest, these are sometimes conditional in my world)
If people need either/both, they know whom to find.
BECAUSE THERE’S TOO MUCH LOVE TO INVEST IT ALL IN ONE PERSON.
