    Current mood: cheerful

    It's been awhile, but blurty is sometimes fickle about when it decides to load. Anyway, the past week has been great. I got to see Sloe and Brittany's new place. I also went to Ron's birthday party with Ryan. I finished up work, which wasn't that great, but it's over. Spent New Year's with Ryan at his house, which was a lot of fun. Of course I will write more detail later when it's not 1am and I'm sleepy. But one thing I wanted to mention:

    During Ron's party Zac said the nicest thing to me. He said that not only does he read this silly blog, but he also enjoys it. I was really touched by him saying that knowing someone through their writing is completely different than standing in front of them and talking. I've always agreed with that. I keep getting these messages that I should continue writing, and even as I keep becoming inspired, somehow later on I lose it. It happens around those times when I see other people have concrete plans for their future careers, interships, job interviews, etc. Sure, doing what I love is wonderful and so important to me, but I'm just afraid it won't help to pay the bills. How can I hope to provide for anyone if I can't take care of myself? What can I promise to contribute to society? I've never wanted to be the starving artist, and I don't want to have a great degree and work at the mall all my life. But at the same time going to school for something I absolutely hate would be a waste of time and money. Too bad I'm no good at business.

    So what am I doing tomorrow? Sleeping, packing a little bit, and yes, reading. I'm not as far in A Passage to India as I'd like. Geez, I thought I'd be done by now. Busy busy. Until next time.

    The adventure continues...
