year from now

Deep Thoughts

"I can see now I never really committed to Laura. I always had one foot out the door, and that prevented me from doing a lot of things, like thinking about my future and... I guess it made more sense to commit to nothing, keep my options open. And that's suicide. By tiny, tiny increments." - John Cusack as Rob Gordon in High Fidelity.

The weekend.

For the last three weeks, my weekends have grown more interesting. However, this last weekend has been the best so far. I took a trip back to Oakdale for a couple of days with old friends. It was exactly what I needed. My mind was off anything related to Lakeland or Franklin... And it felt good to be among old friends again. I think I hang out with decent enough folks now, but they're all work people. Regardless of what we do, it ends up coming back to work. And there's something to be said about hanging out with people where that's not the case.

Of course, I have to be at work in about six hours for a 34 hour shift. So, reality is going to be a bitch. However, my salvation is knowing that at this time on Wednesday night, I should just be coming down off the endorphin high of a Cowboy Mouth concert.

By the way, I have at least three entries written on paper. One of these days, I promise to type and upload them. Promise.
