things that make me happy:
- stealing pens
- red balloons
- eavesdropping into interesting conversations in Starbucks, and being pleasantly surprised when the conversations are shocking or scandalous
- summer dresses
- solving riddles
- using colloquialisms like “the bees knees”
Things that annoy me:
- when men call women bad words
- over zealous baristas
- not having a pen on my person
- when socks slip beneath your feet in shoes
- plaid wearing, “The Velvet Underground” listening, annoying hipster chicks.
things I want to think about:
- Hot for Teacher, Van Halen
- this scene of the Addams Family Values movie.
- Jimmy Stewart
- A Softer World
- nerdy boys
things I don’t want to think about:
- that I’ll be a SENIOR AT UCLA in three months
- the word “coagulate” especially in regards to the thing I’m eating that second
- how long its been since I washed my sheets
- how accurate that guy was at the party last Saturday when he drunkenly explained to me that he thought he may have accidentally peed down that apartment’s trash chute.
- the future
In one minute: playing Blackbird on my guitar.
In one hour: watching 500 Days of Summer and planning my schedule of classes until I graduate.
In one day: eating chicken milanese with my roommate tonight and then Diddy Riese tonight with a friend.
In one week: Taking a southbound train home to San Diego all by myself.
In one fortnight: Practicing the harmonica and ukulele that I’ll bring back from home!
In one month: Spring break! The end of my Milton class!
In one year: (almost) Earning my bachelors degree from UCLA.
In ten years: Ye gods. A mortgage? Grim death? I’ll hope for a husband who says “bless you” when I sneeze and children with cork guns.
Zaire: Damn, I gotta get to Sproul to get a new key. At least losing your key here isn’t as bad as losing it in the real world.
Me: Honey, I’m sorry to tell you this, but this is the real world.
Zaire: No. No it’s not.
Me: Yes it is.
Zaire: No it’s not.
Me: I think we’re not understanding each oth…
Hello, midterms. How lovely of you to stop by.
guess what kind of dog we’re getting
me: a cat
me: SHUT UP HE’S ADORABLE
won’t he eat your baby though?
Jessica: haha no
we’re going to wait until the baby is 6mo-1yr
and then get the puppy
so that way, he’s raised around babies
me: so it’s got a chance of defending itself?
something like that
I think this is an amazing idea, that dog looks sooooo cuddly
Jessica: I know!!
they’re super smart
me: I just want to let him roll around on my bed and then go chase a bad guy
Jessica: and very protective, but not at all aggressive
well, unless they think you are going to harm their family
me: that’s good
i like that in dogs
Jessica: me too
me: i do what a chihuaha though
wait. yours will eat mine
Jessica: and he’s big enough to pull around a doggy cart full of babies
when will you get a chihuahua?
me: when i’m jobless and a stoner in my mid twenties.
I cannot believe that there could be very many feelings in this world better than turning in a paper that you’ve slaved over for days. Hours of sleep you’ll never get back, minutes off of your life, wrinkles drilled into your face. We all go through it, the process is the same always. You get your paper topics, you circle the ones you like, and then it’s a week of doing other things and then a few days of intense drafts and flurries of hands across keyboards, until the last “Save as…” is hit and it’s over. That was my day today, and as it always go, now it’s a week of studying for my Milton midterm in a week. So it goes.
