Month: May 2011

things i didn’t do that i wanted to do during the past few weeks: – return to bleu haus a lot and, specifically, beat paper mario.– party– go to lake michigan several times– go to traverse city again– adventure!– return emily’s books to the michigan library things i did do during the past few weeks – read.– beat a pair…

my dad and i purchased new cell phones so that i will keep in better contact with home base once i’ve moved to madison. after an afternoon with the phone (a smartphone, no less), i’ve decided that this may have been a counter-intuitive move. that, and that the swype texting feature is essentially skynet. i downloaded angry birds “just to…

8000 pages. it’s safe to say i’ve become obsessed with reading every last damn book at the east lansing public library before i go. because, you know, there isn’t a whole giant library system in madison and a sweet-ass library in verona, where i actually work and live. being an extra in a film sucks a lot. especially when the…

and then i go play basketball with a bunch of my friends and feel a lot better. adrenaline rush, endorphins, social activity, all that good stuff. maybe i do need people after all? a balance? bluh. if i stopped thinking about what i’m doing for long enough to just do it, i’d probably be better off in the long run.…

passed the 7000 page mark. that was quick. as i talk to fewer and fewer people around here, i talk to my xanga more, it seems like. although, i only seem to be telling this blog about the games i’ve been playing, books i’ve been reading and movie’s i’ve been watching. but i guess that’s all i’ve been doing, really.…

i feel like at some point in time i told myself i was going to travel during this little pre-work vacation time. or visit bleu haus or go to the beach or…something. i had a potentially fulfilling objective. instead, i played a lot of video games the past two days. last night i beat singularity, a game that borrowed heavily…

went to the pool this afternoon to finish the adults and knock out another random, probably shitty graphic novel, summer blonde by adrian tomine. after completing both novel and its graphic cousin, i felt pretty drained – one might even say i had knocked myself out, if one were inclined to make puns (ugh!). the novel was about living an…

today is a really excellent cloud day. hot and humid enough that thunderheads are capable of bubbling up from that mid-point in the sky where clouds are magically crafted, but not so hot and humid that i can’t sit out back shirtless, melting in the intermittent sun patches. i’ve been reading the adults, by alison espach, which has set me…

i struggle to start blog entries with “i.” it seems so much more convenient to skip that part, considering this is my blog and everyone should know that by now. if i were to start with “spent the past several days with emily,” i doubt anyone would assume that “an impossibly vast hole” was the target of that participle or…

so long bleu haus, it’s been a blast. all that remains of my time spent there are sage’s strange drawing on the wall and (even older) the electronics from a fancy magazine cover. i suppose my bed, chair and carpet are still in the room, but those are for the subleaser. and my xbox is downstairs, but that’s merely because…
