Today at the record store I found for free outside in a box the Peter and the Wolf record, orchestrated by Prokofieff; this is the very record that as I child I would listen to and cry out of fear, evidenced above.
"early one morning, Peter opened the gate and went out into the big green meadow...."

Today is a rainy day in NPR. When I woke up the sky promised rain and you know, its so predictable this time of year; you can close your eyes and feel the air and know what the day will bring with it, usually. Today I found out that another student from my high school overdosed on pills and died. This is a repeat story, I have heard it over and over again but it still always churns my stomach. He was a good kid, he played sports and planned to move with his girlfriend after high school, leave this town behind. Instead he spent a night alone and forgot to count what he was eating. It breaks my heart.

I can't believe how quickly time is flying by right now, I only have 7 months left in this house (or 1 year and 7 months), Noelle leaves in September, the semester ends May, my travels start in June, I'm trying to quit my job by April, I have a major paper due Tuesday, why can't I just stop time so I can enjoy my eggs without thinking about tomorrow

the other day Kyle and I went for a short ride around the neighborhood and tried to see the light at the end of the tunnel aka how the fuck to get into the woods behind the wooden fences in the back. instead we discovered the other side of my lake that I haven't been courageous enough to explore because usually I go out that way at night and I'm pretty sure if there are any alligators they will be right there!!
last night we had a successful Italian potluck, this picture is funnier when placed in context with the one taken right before it: balloons flying around the room. I am exercising deliberateness and motivation to do things, whether they are the right things or now is insignificant to me at the moment.
