Keeping Busy

I may have overextended myself joining reading groups, RSVP-ing for lectures, and signing up to attend meet ups.  Oh, and agreeing to go on dates >.< this may keep me a bit too busy.  Good grief.

Ladybug

I do not write my own story. I'm not in a place where one of us is able to empower another person; subalternity has until now been our lived condition.  I could never speak for MarĂ­a, rather she speaks through me.  I am merely her fingers, her forefinger and her thumb.

My body will move across these pages, bleeding out her words.

"Don't start at the beginning," she wills, "never tell them about the beginning."

Like all good stories, we begin at the end, and work around in the spiral that is the true process of conscious thought.  Meandering around the one point and making it back, the start will slip in via context.  But how we got here does not matter.

In the end, Ted lies bleeding on our perfect rug, and we know we will be found.

Pens

Why do I keep the pens I hate? Anyway, I, going to write some more creative stuff for a bit. There must be little interesting in my life if all I can think to write about are pens.  I woke up, went to school, read, worked out. Watched tv. Boo.

TV Escapism

Catching up with TV really fills empty time.  It seems like most shows that are well-received are actually worth it.  Catching up on Sherlock and Dexter has been pleasant, and there are always more. Like Breaking Bad, Mad Men, the Wire.

As long as it isn't addictive, the TV is a nice distraction.

Reading

It's a bit sad to see how fast you can read if you must. But it isn't as fun to do.  So fast and it goes.  Anyway, it's good to have he new knowledge but it is not complete in this manner.

But, even so, reading for work goes even faster and more is kept.

How does it work this way?

Neck Ache

I didn't really get much done today-- not even homework.  Just trying to finish Warm Bodies in time for bookclub and some lovely Skype-chatting with L.  In any case, it will be an early night and a late morning.  It is that sort of atmosphere.

I will need to do some more work tomorrow-  I have a few short readings and a book I need to get read this weekend.  But reading goes a lot more quickly now, and I can work out and read at the same time tomorrow.

Big plans to go to yoga Sunday night.  Good times.

New Year's Resolutions

Maybe resolving to post every day was a silly idea.  Mostly because nothing exciting much is going on.  Went to school, worked out, not much else >.<
