so, i just finished watching clockwork orange for the first time in a while. i'd forgotten how fucked up that movie was. good, tho. always nice to see something that at least makes you think. i feel like i haven't been doing much of that lately. it's interesting. very self-absorbed. i am, that is. i am very self-absorbed. i'm working on getting over that phase, now, tho.
it's been a while hasn't it? things have been nutso. and i've been self-absorbed. doesn't make for frequent updates. i mean, who was i trying to kid anyway? i knew my regular updates wouldn't last. in any case, here's a stream-of-conciousness attempt at a recap:
i've been partying it up a lot lately; out almost every night, to either dc or arlington. that always makes attempts at productive working-from-home sessions interesting.
my parents went out of town for the weekend (sat-to-tues), so i had the house to myself pretty much (sachia parties a lot, too, and rarely spends time at home with his desperate-for-attention sister). refreshing since i haven't had any time to myself since i left charlotte. of course, i didn't take adequate advantage of it; i spent most of my time puttering around the house pretending i was on the verge of doing something momentously life-changing, without actually accomplishing anything.
i visited deep in san francisco for his birthday; it was tons of fun, and also a nice change of pace from the novurbian scene. he had a bonfire on the beach as a birthday party, so that kinda' satisfied my unwieldy craving for a night under the stars.
sachia (that'd be my brother) (and his real name is sachin) didn't get into nyu, and he's quite upset, as was to be expected. to his credit, he's handling it a lot better than i thought he would. that kid's pretty impressive all around. he didn't even really let it ruin his birthday (12/21).
new year's plans are completely up in the air. my original plans to go to miami are kinda' shot since my fellow-road-trippers no longer feel they will be able to make it. if i can find someone else to do the drive with me, i'll still do it, tho that seems a tad unlikely at this point. i might head to waynesboro with april and join max, whit, noirin and other central-va-ers for a bonfire new years. that'd be pretty appropriate for my non-wild-mood. or if i'm feeling completely lethargic, i might just stick around dc and see what's going on here. there's always plenty of weird stuff to get into here. so, yah, i guess i'll see.
gosh, i sound apathetic. i'm not really. just not particularly excited about anything. i was feeling a burst of creativity earlier, and felt like writing something interesting, but i guess that faded before i actually got around to doing anything about that. the ref (you know that funny movie about the robber and the quarreling couple?) is on tv. i kinda' love that movie. don't know why.
tomorrow/today is christmas! um, we're not celebrating. but i'm happy to have a day with nothing to do. maybe i'll go see a movie. i know some people think that's a terrible thing to do on christmas, but those people are stupid. 'sokay. there are plenty of stupid people in this world.
there have been other fires since the last. it's kinda' funny in a sick, creepy way. like, are my parents really trying to smoke me out of the house? because i would love to leave. why wouldn't they just be direct?
yah, well anyway, that burst of creativity is nowhere to be found. i'm not going to try to force it anymore. if i remember what i felt so inspired about, i'll write something else. merry xmas everyone!
