i’m posting because i’m currently waiting for my friend to finish her studying so that we can hightail out of this building i’ve been hibernating in for nearly nine hours. i found this building on my way to hibernate in a library, but i thought the standalone, trailer ranch looking thing would be more conducive to my studying, so i walked to a door and tried to open it. in reality, the door was just locked, but i thought maybe it was just stuck (and i was freaking cold, yo, so i just wanted to open anything and get me some shelter going on), so i kept pulling and tinkering around when i finally noticed there was a classroom full of people inside. some who stared at me.

but that was nearly nine hours ago, when the sun was still out and about, and now i’m sitting here, waiting in anxiousness to brave the great cold once more and trek a few hundreds of yards (!) to return to the warm sanctum of my apartment.

and then i’m going to order domino’s.

don’t tell anyone, but during my nine hour period of studying, i’ve periodically just left a large picture of domino’s oven baked sandwiches on my computer screen.

and just stared.

thanksgiving eve

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)

(holla)

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.
