It’s rainy and cold, I need to go grocery shoppin’, but I’m too lazy.

smelly messy apartment with three other gals, rainy, room on the first floor by the front porch… it’s fucking pouring.

i have, like, a jar of olives, some baby carrots and old lettuce, dressing or mayo (whichever’ll take me months to use), and some dried pasta.

this is a mix so that when i decide to either run to cvs (and grab some sour worms and a tub of pringles), or order in (a small ham covered pizza) i’m covered with cool, wacky tracks in between schlubs of ‘what am i doing with my life?’ . or, to rally me when i pull together some extra $’s and run to trader joe’s.

How often do you look back? Really reflect on what you’ve done? The insignificance of it all. Pointless arguments, inside jokes, funny haircuts but do you every wonder how you will be remembered or if what you’ve done and what you’re doing means anything

often, i look back often. quite vulnerable to nostalgia, sentimentality. coming of age, culmination of time spent with friends, family, alone, apart, together. figure out where i want to be all in the time allotted me.
