I already Tweeted about it but I just need to say more

Ok so Delta and Northwest are merging to become the world's largest airline. The fuck? All I can say is, prepare to be fucked over in more fun ways. What with NWA's aging fleet of aircraft and Delta's cool little trick of putting you on stand-by when you don't even know it, I am super excited to fly the friendly skies. Which presidential candidate is supporting an airline passenger's bill of rights? At this juncture, this seems a more pressing issue than universal healthcare. BECAUSE FLYING THE TWO WORST AIRLINES I HAVE EVER FLOWN THAT HAVE NOW BECOME ONE WILL KILL ME.

My Triumphant Return

So I could make a story about how I bumped my head and got amnesia and forgot I had a blog that I wrote in and stuff and apparently people read. That would just make me a big liar. Mary doesn't lie. The truth is, I got really, really lazy. I was doing the NaBloPoMo thing when a tragic event occurred and I lost all desire to talk to the internet every day for a month. If you go to RIT, you probably know what happened. If you don't go and want to know what happened, you are shit out of luck for now. I really don't have the energy necessary to write about that. But I promise I will.

Then winter happened. With winter, there is a general sense of malaise around these parts. To make a short story...shorter, I didn't bother to post anything in my blog.

But now spring is here and I am on the cusp of new beginnings. Soon I will be graduating and hopefully starting a job in the real world. Since this blog has followed me through every life change from my teenage years to my early twenties (that felt really weird typing that. Really, really weird.) I thought I owed it to my blog to return once again.

So here I am. I'll give you a quick update of the stuff that's happened before I loose my mojo: one of my best friends is getting married and I am bridesmaid, I can't decide who I am supporting for president yet, my Mom had cancer and now she doesn't, I get homesick a lot, I AM GRADUATING COLLEGE.

All that and much more, um...soon.

Day 4

So here is a realish post.

This fall has been awful.

I haven't seen a bout of depression or some horrible traumatic event or anything to trigger this sense of awfulness. My course schedule wasn't as full as I was used to, certain people weren't around and certain activities were not taking place. These are things that I've grown to depend on as part of my routine. I am very much a creature of habit and the fact that I have certain elements missing from my life that I've grown to cherish has been hard to get used to. I feel like I've been walking around in a fog. Katie and I had no classes together this quarter and completely different schedules, leaving no possibility for lunch dates or swim sessions. Dan is on co-op. Kerry is in New Hampshire for the year. No more rugby. I ended up with only 12 credits this quarter. I usually take 16 or 17. Chemistry was little much for me. A lot of math and the fact that it was geared to Engineers put me off it. So I withdrew. All of these factors messed with my routine. I don't have the same fervor for schoolwork or knitting or doing other odd projects. The only thing I've been able to do with any regularity this fall is read.

I think I may have a bit of post-traumatic stress from events last spring. But more on that for another time. Don't want to shoot my blogging load all in one go.

Day 3

Yet again I inexplicably lack the energy for a "real" post. This is a place holder until I can come up with something brilliant.

Day 2

Ugly Betty and Chinese food? Sounds like a good Friday night to me.

Real post tomorrow.

Happy NaBloPoMo!

Today kind of snuck up on me. I wasn't even sure if I wanted to do NaBloPoMo again this year. Last year was great. I managed to post even though I had my wisdom teeth out and my face swelled to chipmunk like proportions. I neglected this here blog. This fall has been really weird. But because I don't want to get into those details quite yet (what else would I write about?) I shall leave it at that. I've been carrying No One Cares What You Had for Lunch in my backpack but have I looked at it? Nooooo. Hopefully I come up with something profound to fill the days. Until tomorrow.

Oh no not again

Guess what I'm doing again this year?


I've neglected this blog enough. And this year I am not having my wisdom teeth out, so posting will be all the more pleasurable! See you on November 1st!
