This is a friend I ‘made’ in the streets of Chinatown in San Francisco. She is not pleased to see me.
Thanksgiving is finally upon us. After 7 straight weeks of midterms, a new job, a cat stealing all of my attention at home, and the flu for the past few weeks, my shoulders can be at ease. I have finished my last assignments, done my work, and it is finally time for me to spend a peaceful break in the forests of Vermont with the people I love.
This photo is very representative of my mindset right now. I need to get the hell out of here. Get a move on. Gain some momentum. I’ve been stuck in this strange limbo of taking classes I should’ve taken 2 years ago as a result of my stealing away to Argentina for some months. What does that mean? That means everything I’ve done is framed in a mindset of 2 years ago. My classes? Tests every week and busy work to keep me at bay from watching too much TV. All of it makes me feel stuck, makes me feel claustrophobic. I’m glad I can start afresh in a few weeks and put all of my boring classes finally behind me. Then again, next quarter is the quarter I finish school… perfect time to start afresh I suppose?
