Isn't That the Truth

"There's never enough time to do all the nothing you want."
-Bill Watterson, Calvin & Hobbes

This was my favorite quote when I was at my junior college. It's such a brave truth. I feel that these days, time is seeping faster and faster away from me. Sometimes I lie in bed and grab the bedspread, hoping that time will crawl so that I continue thinking.

Of course that never happens and it's 7:32am and I am running late. Again and again.

Today my Freedom of Communication teacher told our class that we should pursue our dreams. We should go towards them and not let anyone tell us otherwise. She is such a smart, eloquent woman. My girlfriends and I were really touched by how candid she was.

It got me thinking more about my plans post-grad. I really want to move again. But a bigger move this time. I can't go home. Thanksgiving return was a disaster. Less than 5 people from home will talk to me. Aside from my family that is. I felt disconnected and lonely when I was there. It was also really cold and rainy. I don't know why so few people will talk to me from there anymore. I won't be moving back. It wasn't home anymore.

Going overseas to live has got me more driven and motivated for something in a long while. Hmm...

And today, I saw him again. We talked. It was once again, really nice. He's got the most piercing blue eyes. I wonder if mine did anything to him. His made my heart jump. Just a smidge.

I also had a really, really delicious egg sandwich this morning. The bread was perfect. Soft, buttery, sweet. Yummm. With 3 m's. (Igby Goes Down reference anyone?)

Love to you all,

Calvin & Hobbes is good but The Far Side is great. And that diner scene was excellent in Igby Goes Down, but so was everything else in that film. I still can't believe Burr Steers career didn't launch after that.

It's always difficult to go home. I find myself disconnected from my friends at home too. Everyone changes and that's ultimately a good thing.

oh, it sounds like you are up for an adventure when you move. i moved away to go to college and had ZERO interest in moving back to my hometown. i guess some like to go back home, but some of us move on and make new lives/homes. yay for us! :)
