So not much is really going on my life right now; school/work is taking over like a giant tropical strangling vine. But that is normal.
Rachel and I sat outside and ate dinner together on Valentines Day—watching her in the twilight (with her newly dyed Red-As-Franka-Potente-In-Run-Lola-Run hair) made me realize how important she is to me. This is the first time I had actually been in a relationship on February 14. We were both to busy to really talk, just weary of the world.
Things like that make me question what the hell I think I’m accomplishing by wasting my entire youth on school. I could be 28 before I get out of grad school…I don’t know if I can wait that long to start living. Hell, for cavemen, that was more than half of their lifespan.
As far as good news goes, I have several items:
1) I finally joined facebook (and am more than enthralled with the spectacle of it all)
2) My chem lab went ok today
3) I have rediscovered the glory of pre-1990 Madonna (Look around, everywhere you turn is heartache...It's everywhere that you go)
