And then I cut my own hair and feel better.

AA is so college-towny it's funny. Some of the houses are desperately moving too-big furniture out the too-small door while the other houses are creating clouds of barbecue and pot smoke while the rest of the houses are patching up the moving and barbecuing scars of yesterday. This place will cave in on itself one day, and we'll still be living in it.

Almost had a panic attack today, nervous about unknowable short term future scenarios. I was relieved by receiving a check with a reassuring note in the mail, soon after being pushed even farther by seeing someone from my program in Pierpont. I remembered him and that he goes by his last name but was awkwardly trying to pretend I didn't. He remembered me, of course, and I gave the pretense of being new in town and doe-eyed.

When you have as little interaction with others as I did today, what does occur is amplified a thousandfold. Fortunately I'm spending the rest of the week on vacation and around people. And when I return I'll have roommates and courses and a thousand intersections with humanity.

Apropos of nothing else, I watched Chungking Express tonight.

Having been there myself, I understand. But having been there myself, I also I find it all very exiting for you though. The unknown if part of the adventure. :-)

Gentle hugs back, due to sore Ikea arms. :]

Go. Enjoy Florida. Relax. Things will be much better once civilization returns to your everyday life!
