#1 on my list of things i would not like to be doing at 2 am is crying my eyes out after writing a facebook wallpost to one of my best friends who i’ve barely seen this summer because she stayed in eugene. it just sort of really, really hit me that i’m not coming home until christmas which means it’ll be a long time before i see my friends here again.
I fell in love again. All things go, all things go Drove to Chicago. All things known, all things known We sold our clothes to the state. I don’t mind, I don’t mind I made a lot of mistakes. In my mind, in my mind
Title: The Long and Arduous Love Story of Jim Thunder.
Plot Summary: 20-something Jim Thunder (Joseph Gordon Levitt with long hair but not too long if he’s not available see Jesse Eisenberg) has everything he could possibly need, a nice house and vague yet artsy career working in a museum/newspaper/morgue. That’s the problem though he has everything he needs but nothing he wants. In breezes Molly(Zoe Saldana with bangs and winged 60’s eyeliner and clothes in all shades of taupe) a kooky yet attractive “in -a-kooky-kinda-way but-not-ugly-but-not-FHM- hot girl” who is moving from job to job taking polaroids of sad and obscure things as she goes. Together they rollerblade and sit in empty pools while Wilco and Spanish versions of Feist songs play in the background. Ultimately Molly helps John or Joe or Jesse overcome his crippling Hipsterness and re connect with his family particularly his father. Some other stuff happens but you’re gonna have to pay to see that. The final credits roll and Mos Def plays us out with a spoken word version of Florence and the Machines Cosmic Love. In French. FIN.
i think now would be the time to let the world know how much i really don’t like wes anderson films.
so the bag that i’m checking better not weigh over 100lbs, otherwise i’m fucked. i’d say right now it’s definitely pushing 75-90 so…that means i’ll have to pay the normal bag fee + $50 for the 50lbs+ charge.
i feel like it’s not quite 100 yet…because i can still lift it (albeit barely) and i only weigh like 105 so. if it’s over 100 alaska won’t take it at all and then my life becomes a giant disaster.
either way i’ll be spending like, a billion hours in the pdx airport come friday morning getting it all sorted.
so i leave for college in 4 days and various family members and family friends are apparently alcoholic messes, sick, dying, depressed about all of the above issues concerning various people etc etc etc.
it really didn’t feel like today was my last so it’ll be strange when i don’t have to wake up early to be at the wednesday morning editorial meeting. also i won’t get to spend three days of the week hanging out with a snaggle-toothed pug with an underbite.
i did leave however, with school credit and the promise of a good reference from the editor-in-chief any time i need one.
now all that’s left for this week is packing, packing packing, tying up various loose ends, getting my hair cut (finally!) on wednesday, going to last thursday, saying goodbye to my friends and my mom and then taking off for boston friday morning.
i should probably stop telling people i’m going to get a real job eventually, because it’s probably never going to happen.
i should probably stop telling people i want to do a big internship on the east coast next summer, because it’s probably never going to happen.
i should probably stop telling people i’m planning on travelling after i graduate, because it’s probably never going to happen.
i should probably stop telling people i’m planning on going to law school, and not waste the space in my bags to take my LSAT books to school, because it’s probably never going to happen.
maybe i get straight A’s, maybe i’m probably the chair of my department’s favorite student in the past few years, maybe i scored in the 99th percentile on the english section of the ACT, but honestly i’m not that smart and i’m not that creative and i’ll probably spend the rest of my life living in a shitty apartment working at some shitty restaurant.
just got a text from one of my friends at humboldt: ”we just met a nice lesbian. we miss you.”
i miss my friends at humboldt so so so so so much. i mean, i knew i would but i guess i didn’t think about it quite as much until this weekend now that they’re all back at school and hanging out without me.
really hope i can make amazing friends in massachusetts so i don’t spend my whole year wallowing in sadness because i gave up such great people at humboldt.
