Just been keeping my head up lately. To make use of the practically zero human interaction I’ve been having (no job in the summer, plus less class hours, plus not dinner with friends/SO, plus no weekend get togethers with extended friend groups), I’ve tried to start writing again. As I’ve been walking a lot to keep me away from home and from the computer, I came upon on idea that I’ve been exploring as of late. The concept is a piece that involves a man whom is told by a psychiatrist, based on his interests and passions, that he should watch the sunset for (50, 100? 30, 40?) X days and record what he sees. A skeptical and interesting take on narrative, the work has so far been heavily influenced by Vladimir Nabakov’s works. I’m excited!!!! (Summers are usually so boring for me, and this one, without friends or family around, has been exceptionally isolating -literally my cravings for social interaction are so real, and nothing fills it the same as face-to-face).
P.S. Was excited to go back home last week. I know I’m full of dat youth angst, but seriously, that’s the kind of thing I warn friends to be a sign of mental fatigue and insanity.
P.S.S. Cody is still the same as I remembered, even despite my worries that I exaggerate who he is and how much we get along. It’s always a pleasant surprise, especially since we have only tried catching up on facebook chat once or twice and it was terrible generic/unengaging. So nice to see how similar we are plus how close we can still be. Dat incredible guy
