So I’m in New Jersey again. My dad and I flew out here Thursday, met my friend Max at the airport, then took a stretch limo down to the beach. That was pretty nice. My friend Max stayed with us a couple days, he just left. We leave ourselves tomorrow morning, around 5 or so. It’s a 15 hour drive back to Illinois, so that’s going to be a long day. But I’ve done it twice before, so I don’t think it’ll be so bad. I’ll just listen to music and sleep, as always.

Yesterday and today Max and I taught ourselves how to skimboard. It isn’t very hard, but since we didn’t have a single clue how to go about it we fell down a lot. So my ass kinda hurts right now, but oh well. It’s not summer unless you’re sunburned and soar, and I am both. I like it here, the ocean is nice. But there’s plenty waiting for me back in Illinois, so I’m not too sad about my little jaunt back to the coast ending almost as soon as it begins. I’ve had plenty of ocean this summer, thankfully.

I’ve begun reading this book, The Dharma Bums, by Jack Kerouac. It’s quite good, ZoĆ« gave it to me for my birthday. It’s meaning something to me, at least, and a book hasn’t done that for a while. I need to start reading more again.

I have decided that while my life is interesting, it doesn’t really come off that way when written down. I mean, honestly, this can’t be that fascinating. So I’ve decided I should start doing more creative extemporaneous (can’t spell) writing. Short essays on topics with slightly more depth than where I went to lunch. I’m going to try writing only when I actually have something to say (read: less often). Let’s see how that goes.
