DOB (not the drug)

i just wanted to mention that i’m older now (which i’ve always thought was kind of interesting that our society chooses years to measure age because aren’t we technically always older? WEIRD) – by standards of our civilization – in that i am one year older than i was a year ago.

that’s kind of deep, man.

i’m also back in school, and i’m ready to annihilate this semester. trust me. even if getting all A’s this time around will barely dent my dismal academic past, i’m ready to give it all i’ve got.

ALSO, i wanted to add that the nice man who sold me a watch (the present my mother got me this fine birthday) a few weeks ago sent me an email today wishing a happy birthday. and hoping that i enjoy my watch. how nice! it kind of renews my faith in the congeniality of mankind …i hope he doesn’t have some kind of ulterior motive.

that would be sad.

(like selling me more watches or something. because that is not substantiation for the congeniality of mankind. that’s just someone who wants to sell me more watches)

(PS: i know this is categorized under quotidian, which is almost completely wrong. a birthday happens once in a year, but these thoughts i’m having are basically just me – something i hope i’m able to hold on to with each passing year, fragments of my identity)

i just found what i believe to be a single cat hair attached to the sleeve of my shirt.

and i haven’t been around a cat for awhile.

(note to self: laundry. it just might work.)

i wanted to send a december hello from california, where the temperatures are questionable, but the state’s charms never fail me. i flew out here from jersey on christmas day, which i initially thought of as meh because it’s christmas day – i should be toasty indoors with additional toastiness overflowing from the arrant fact of the birth of jesus christ (um, or something like that. i’m not actually christian). but instead i was breathed into the vast throngs of a public airport, where i was sad to abandon the prospect of the season’s first snowfall.

i did not anticipate for all three of new york’s major airports to be closed after christmas day.

so heck yeah, i sidelined that baby. score one to connie, and zero to force that might be trying to intrude on my winter vacation travels.

happy last week before the next year! enjoy the weather to the best of your ability, and a merry season to all!
