This was actually composed nearly a month ago, a mere day after my Katima-revelation. However, it was composed at work and because my work is such a heinous snatch-box. I was not able to find a way to get it to myself as the server has gotten far too intelligent and will no longer send to my hotmail account. Damn the man:
Ok, so I looked into the Katimavik thing and I'm too old anyway, so moot point. However, that's alright. Realistically, I couldn't have gone next year anywa; school could have waited but stuff like Chai...well they'd be pissed. And I'd be pissed, cause I am looking forward to it next year. So I won't be doing that. Still, my little reverie yesterday has made me realise that I need to get the fuck outta Dodge, but quick. Ok, so in a year and a half. Not so quick. I'm taking a very "Heinz Ketchup will only come out when it's ready" approach to quick. But I digress...
I just want to take off and lead another life for a few months. Maybe Charlize Theron's. She seems like she's having a good ride. I just think it's important to get a little crazy before truly settling down into adult life. I think that's what the raving and writing has been (I've been writing again, kids, and composing a bit too. First time in over a year. It's been good): outlets for non-adult creativity. It's unrealistic to commit to one thing for your entire life at the age of 18 upon entering University. I shared this with my parents yesterday and they were suprisingly supportive. Not that I thought they wouldn't be at all, but they were like, "Fuck yeah! Get your ass abroad, bitch!" Ok, that was just my dad; my mother was too busy shooting up to comment.
On another note, I went to see Guys & Dolls on Monday. Holy hell, is that a jazz hand-y show. I always thought it was about cowboys. But it's not. So I was happy about that. One of the four leads looked like Uncle Joey from Full House (You know, that show I wasn't allowed to watch as a child cause my dad thought it had adult situations. How far we've come). Too bad he sucked many, many elephant bums. It was actually painful. A
nd lastly, for those who wish that I was wittier, happier and better looking, check out http://www.vividblurry.com/. It's brilliant.
