‘…we only stay in orbit, for a moment in time…’

Sunday, January 25th, 2004 at about 9:47 pm

That problem seems to have gone away. I am throwing myself at life with the resolve (or reckless abandon, I can’t tell which) appropriate. It seems to be working well enough.

I’m feeling a little removed. In Better Luck Tomorrow, which I saw for a second time last night, they talk about breaking the cycle of happiness. I don’t know how relevant that is, but I suppose I do see the appeal in just doing something different. In fact, I’m completely thrilled whenever anything out of the ordinary happens. But not majer, world-changing types of things. Just little things. The earnest and highly polite discussion that ensues when I have to miss a class for something, or get sick and need to go home, or just whenever something not in the prescribed order of things happens. In the spirit of spontaneity, I drove to County Market and got a box of Froot Loops at 9 o’clock on this Sunday night. It was supposed to make me feel better. At least it took my mind off of… whatever I was thinking about before.
