You know when you’re so close to something you want that you can taste it?  It’s significantly difficult.  It’s a precarious matter. It’s a slippery slope:  maybe not in the conventional usage of the phrase, but you feel like you could fall over at any given time.  Life is like that for me right now.  Too close to the untouchable, to the unchangeable.  I’m roughly 2 weeks away from escape, though.  I thought I’d be thrilled to get away, but now I’m not 100 percent sure.  I feel a little weird, not ready.  I never really feel ready for anything I’m doing though. Practice practice practice think think practice think think practice.  How can I get through days like this?  I’m not trying to be emo or angsty.  I’m really just wondering. So much is at stake right now in so many ways.  How do you know which way to go?  Follow your heart, your head, or your dream?  I guess it seems like sometimes you when you want to do all 3 it becomes increasingly difficult to do any of them.  I end up sitting here, not really moving, not really taking any chances.  I’m pretty sure I want to figure it all out, to go away for a weekend to think, to escape to the woods and just be without any distractions to clear my head, heart, and hopes.  It isn’t enough just to think that everything’s clear right now because I’m pretty sure that none of it is.

It’s been a while, hasn’t it?  I should write more, vent more, eat more, read more, live more.  I should do so many shoulds and I hate shoulds more than most other things. I’m incredibly annoyed too.  I wish people would grow up, or get a clue, or open their eyes.  I wish I weren’t so veiled.  I wish people knew when I was being serious.  I wish so much.  I wish, I think, I dream, I hope.  Do you see a trend?

Fall’s a good time of year.  I like it the most.  I’m excited to be in a new place for it.  To fall madly in love with a city I know very little about.  I’m scared to leave everything behind.  I’m terrified of coming back and it all being changed, or maybe worse for it to be mostly the same but feeling not right because I can’t figure out what’s changed.

Anyway, I’ll write again later. Maybe tonight but for sure tomorrow.  I don’t know if writing is good for me, but I’ll do it.

So it’s been a while.  I’ve been sorta busy with the Midwest Arts Conference and moving and no longer living alone.  I like having roommates again.  As much as I love living alone and being my own boss, I love the social potential of this arrangement.  I love my roomies too.  They’re really pretty great.  The other night we played Quelf, and it was my first time playing.  I have to say it is probably the most entertaining game I’ve ever played.  If you’re not familiar with the game, you should definitely buy it and play it.  It might be better when you’re slightly buzzed, but I’m pretty sure it’d be pretty fun sober as well.

This blog is kinda aimless. I’m still pretty tired from last week.  I’m feeling a lot of stuff right now that I’ll eventually have to work through on here, just not right now.  It looks like NYC and China are getting closer and closer.  That means it’s really time to get back in shape. Pronto.

In case you thought I was making it all up, this is what I’ll be doing in China.
