It’s mighty lonesome around here during mid term break. I’m going all kinds of stir crazy. I’m waiting for one of those “I’m so glad I live in the middle of nowhere in a foreign country” feelings to hit or for an inspired “seize the day” attitude to take hold, but for now I intend to continue spending my midterm blues with Huckleberry Finn and season 1 of The Wire. I was going to stay in town this weekend and use the saved cash to buy a comfy chair, but I think my waning sanity may require a trip out on the town. The weird thing is that school starts this week and I’m not excited about that either. I’ve reached that point in loneliness where I’m hiding from the very thing that could make me feel better. I’m trying to believe that once upon a time, I was happy here.
