Reflection

Watched Master and Commander last night. This was a thoroughly enjoyable film. I'm in class right now. I am possibly derailing the entire intent of this journal by writing only when I am exceedingly bored or angry. Right now I am most interested in two things. First what will I eat for lunch? Second, what can I do to waste time for the next two hours?

Beth and I have never gotten along better. I am endlessly happy I married her.

School wraps up

I am right here in the fucking heart of boredom. Feeling like a weird cross between Hunter S. Thompson and Johnny Cash. I'm dressed all in black for class picture day. I couldn't care less. I wish I could leave right this minute and just go. I feel a horrible impending disconnect that may or may not have something to do with the fact that I am now exactly 30 days from the end of my massage therapy school. I think it probably has a lot to do with the endless days off I had on Sunday and today. I just shotgunned a cherry coke and it didn't even touch my caffeine tooth. I should have bought a red bull. I feel an awesome and awful disconnection from myself.

I absolutely hate this entire experience.

Voting

Early, really early, and instead of sleeping, I'm waiting in a not-too-brutally-long waiting line at the polls. Depressingly, I'm one of the youngest people here. Though I am glad I came. I suppose on some level, perceived power is better than none. They keep coming, though, so much for American voter apathy. It's strange, really, I never felt compelled to vote before. Maybe it was the Eminem video.

(later)

I voted. Kerry, I guess. I sort of just bought into all the hype. I don't know who will win. I'm interested in a either-way-this is-going-to-be-bad sort of way. I'm going to be late to work. What the fuck is taking this train so long?
