Month: July 2010

red house kids have been moving in the past two days. it’s strange. i liked ian’s room better when it was filled with echoes and ghosts (or when he was in it, i guess). it’ll be strange to walk down the stairs and see andy and his girlfriend canoodling instead of ian staring at me from his mattress. it feels…

my goodness, another week has passed. how they are flying as the dreaded beginning of law school draws near. i would encourage time to begin flowing backward, but i feel maybe it’s a bit early in my life for that sort of benjamin button action. i probably just futzed around or worked the first few days of last week. read…

it’s strange to spend weekdays up north – i was continuously referring to emily and my time together as “a weekend getaway.” one gets so used to classes or work during the work that having free time there simply transfers the weekend momentum forward, eclipsing the typical motions of the calendar. it was a very pleasant weekend getaway. after one…

last weekend was spent up north with emily and her extended family. they’re nice people, geeks primarily, and much shorter than me. it was interesting to be the second tallest person in attendance by a healthy margin. instead of drinking and reminiscing, as my family reunions tend to be, they played card games and trash-talked. it was a strangely sober…
