i woke up this morning to sun beaming in through my blinds. i pondered for a second and then said fuck you, sun. and i skipped my first class. best enjoy the ability to sleep in for one more month, eh.
my advice for the day – don’t curse the sun.
my happiness was short-lived as the rest of the day just blew goats. i’m too knackered to even try and explain, but basically i don’t understand why people say yes, when they really mean no. should have stayed in bed for the day. if only.
thank god january is almost over, it and all the shit from this month can disappear into the black hole from which it came. perhaps i should boycott february? or at least the first two weeks…or just avoid all card shops that are spewing pink and red.
i was walking home from the library tonight and the wind was raging, my coat and skirt turning up but my boots protecting my feet from the ripples flying off the puddles. and then i had a weird flashback to grade school.
when i was in grade five i had this obsession with wearing kilts. my mom being scottish and all, of course i had many kilts (most especially this tartan) and basically wore a kilt or skirt to school everyday. always coupled with my doc martens and opaque tights. perhaps i was secretly wishing i had gone to private school or something. i did go through a similar phase in grade ten too, except i wore all black, stockings not tights, and purple doc boots.
anyway, as i was standing at the crosswalk tonight waiting for the light to turn green and as the wind hit my legs i was suddenly in my elementary school courtyard, in front of a tree. i was once dared to climb that tree. in a skirt, but in the end i couldn’t. i’m horrible at climbing things, mainly because i have a fear of getting stuck at the top, and not being able to get down. i can do fences, but just.
i don’t know why suddenly as the wind hit my legs i was brought back to that place. maybe its time for me to climb a tree, or get over my fear of the fall back down. not sure, but it was a random time and place to think of standing at the crosswalk. i also missed the green light, so i had to wait a few more minutes as the green walking man disappeared into the dark.
there is no cohesion to this post. just had to empty the thoughts somewhere.
ah, random blog hopping has its benefits. was reminded of some comedy gold.
