First day of school…tomorrow

It’s been more than two years since I finished my last final exam and I thought then I’d be done with school forever. Life, however, has a way of maneuvering down strange roads that eventually led me back to…school. It’s the same in that it’s different. I’ve had a long enough break to take this on as something new. I’ve learned plenty during this long break, things that aren’t taught in school. I’m sure I’m well prepared and yet, I feel a sense of unfamiliarity. Something’s amiss. I can’t put it in words. It’s weird. In any case, I am excited and nervous about grad school. I shall see what it really is like tomorrow.

**8/31 – Tuesday

Well, at least I survived the first day. It’s only going to get harder from here on out. LOTS of reading and homework. I took too long of a break and got out of the habit of preparing for class and all that. Now I have to get back into it. It’s going to be fun though because my linguistic classes are right up in my alley and so interesting. The professor has a good sense of humor and that helps. In order to feel better and get “everything” out of my system, I’m going to scream: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

Game on.


It was only a kiss…

Stop looking for deeper meanings. It’s a simple gesture. A simple hug, a simple kiss, why make it so complicated? Pft…look who’s talking. Yes, it’s understandable that we want to believe that there’s something more, it’s our basic instincts driving us to find meaning in everything and it’s hard to fight against that, but, sometimes, things just happen. Call it coincidence, fate, destiny…life. Doesn’t matter as long as it makes us feel comfortable, as long as it fits our beliefs because, when we get to the root of it, there are only two outcomes: either you believe that there’s an ultimate consequence (in which case your life is adding up to that last moment some call ‘eternity’), or you believe that your actions here and now are all that matter, nothing more. You can’t have it both ways. You can’t always get what you want.
