i thought i’d give this updating thing a go because it’s been awhile! i just reread my latest entry (…in early october), and it mentioned my neverending exams until thanksgiving, and guess what, my friends… tomorrow is thanksgiving! and i am momentarily free of assessments! (until break ends, in which case i go to class for two more weeks and then commence the revels of final examinations. but let’s not think about that)
this last month was hard, in more ways than i can both describe and want to think about. but what it comes down to right now, at this moment here, is that i’m not as troubled as i have been in the last few weeks, or even in the last few days, and maybe i can even admit that i’m happy, at least for now.
(and sorry, since i’ve become a science major way back when, my writing has gone down the proverbial hole. and alongside this journey down said hole, i’ve really forgotten how to write lucidly. and how to use commas)
(but i could probably tell you about oxymercuration-demercuration reaction mechanisms pretty well)
in more thanksgivingy news…
i’m thankful for having my family.
thankful for the people around me.
thankful for all of the guests who will come together tomorrow in good spirits and good health to collectively celebrate one twisted american holiday (seriously though, what the heck? it’s the anniversary of the slow destruction of native americans? and WE’RE GOING TO EAT TURKEY IN LIGHT OF IT?)
thankful for having what i still have; and thankful, maybe, for still being here, with what’s left of myself, in this life i’ve been given and attempted to build onto.
happy thanksgiving to all – i hope you can be with those who make you happy.
and good food.
