I've had it with these snakes.

ponderings on strange ucsc customs...

Yesterday it was so hot outside that I took an hour out on the knoll to work up my vitatim D levels. This morning is like the complete opposite: it's cold and very very misty. In fact, the fog is so dense, it's verging on drizzle...if this weather keeps up, it's only a matter of time before the First Rain hits, and consequently zillions of naked slugs run through campus. Who knows...maybe it'll be tonight...hehe, anyone going to join?

I've had it with these snakes.

on the danger of good memories

Been having a lot of those those "this time last year..." thoughts lately. And sometimes it can be good.... like "this time last year, my life was crap, and now it's great." But when life is on the upswing, we tend to forget the trash-heap we've left. You really start to get these...nostolgic reminiscences... when your current statis is somehow lacking what it used to. you know? In a way, I guess, it is like an escape. Instead of owning up to your unhappiness, you blame it on what you don't have/have lost. So you try to push those memories from your mind. Tell yourself that you want to forget. Tell yourself to focus on the present. But secretly, secretly it's a comfort to know that at one point--you had it all together. And so you don't forget. You sit alone at your desk and think this time last year...I had it all.
