It is the last (also maybe the third) blue October sky of the year and I'm stuck inside.  Stupid H1N1.  I had a fever for less than 24 hours, but I'm still lightheaded and dizzy. 

My parents are out of town and though I'm glad they're seeing the world I do wish I could just pick up the phone and call them.  Murad's been super busy with stuff, and everyone else I know was on screw dates last night (Screw Your Roommate night = set up your roommate on a blind date).  Last night I went just about stir crazy.  I watched a bunch of Netflix Instant Watch stuff, sometimes interrupted to peer at the noisy kids in the parking lot outside my window.  I'm actually becoming the old lonely meddling neighbor lady; bit terrifying, really.

I need to get on stuff.  Put a resume together, figure out a summer job, do lots and lots of homework.  I feel like this one stupid term has tremendous opportunities for me that are slipping through my fingers and this is the one chance I'll ever have to do (what? I don't even know) and I'm messing it up.  It's so stupid.  Gah.  I want to go on a walk.

Bundle up in excessive amounts of blankets, grab a mug of hot tea, sit on your porch with a good book, find a big stick and become the crazily yelling neighbour lady.

I've worried about missing things before, and been upset over missing some things, but weirdly enough, that whole growing up and getting lame thing sets in in short order lol, and then some of the things that you miss suddenly seem not that big a deal. (Like high school parties lol. Sad at the time to miss them, but would you want to go back and do one now? No, because you can have a college party, and legal booze is way less of a hassle.)

Hahaha, power to the cat ladies.

It's weird because I used to hate missing anything (Mariko's brain: Nooo, I'm going to miss something and I won't make friends!) but college parties are le suck so I'm not too bummed about not showing up. But there's a difference between missing parties and being isolated, which I don't care for at all. Fortunately I'm getting reacquainted with the world again.
