Squee! for the cold front
It started getting cooler last night, and near the end of class today the sky just opened up. I was a little worried when it looked like i could see the wind blowing sheets of rain, but when i actually got outside it wasn't all that bad.

The problem with handing in papers the last month of school is that there's no sense of accomplishment. You just start on the next paper. Sigh.

Yesterday i was intelligent in both my literature classes. I could get used to this. Dozing off in classes is also becoming a habit. Oh well. Only another few weeks.

I'm on my way to becoming a responsible adult. Yesterday i called and reserved tickets for "Love is Sweet; With Bread it's Better" at Hampshire and "The House of Bernarda Alba" here. Reserving tickets to shows at college is so easy; they just want a name and daytime phone number, none of this credit card hassle.

Sharon mentions Boy Meets Boy every once in a while, so in my procrastination last night i finished reading all the way to the present. (I had actually started before last night.) Not only is it really good, but it's much with the Buffy references. Shibby!

Online comics are the latest work of the procrastination devil.

At Alumnae Tea today, Sharon Bowers said, “Do something brave everyday.”
I have a tendency to write really intense letters, in the let-it-all-out-and-don’t-look-back vein. One of the best times to send such letters is when you’re graduating because you probably never have to deal with these people again.

I sent one of these letters to a friend of a friend last May or so, and i’m fairly certain she thinks i’m mildly psychotic because of it. I really don’t care, though. "If you're gonna do it, overdo it... that's how you know you're alive." (Yeah, Ani!)

A high school friend is currently enjoying the bitchdom that can be adolescence. He said it makes him doubt his motto that “in spite of everything, people are truly good at heart” (Anne Frank). I pointed out that most people grow into better people, but it got me thinking. I think people are basically selfish at heart, but our self-preservation instinct manifests itself in drastically different ways. We often worry what people are going to think of us, and act according to that. This can cause us to act in very different ways, depending on the situation. Sometimes we do good things, sometimes not.

Evelyn had “live your life as if no ones looking” as her away message today. It’s a really good life motto. Answer to your conscience, but don’t worry about what other people are going to think. There are always going to be people who agree, approve, whatever, and always people who don’t.

I think i want to live my life true to myself.

Don't burn the day away / Is this not enough / This blessed sip of life / Is it not enoughCollapse )
