I. LEAVE. FOR. ICELAND. IN. ONE. WEEK.
I’m not freaking out – YOU’RE FREAKING OUT.
Monday, August 4th
My friend got a job far, far away in Philadelphia. For a while we were in similar positions — both living at home, not knowing what we want to do with our lives. I’m so happy for her. But I’m also really scared about what’s going to happen to me. Maybe that’s selfish.
Tonight we gathered at one of our favorite bars to say goodbye. I’m sad. She was the one that always went to concerts with me because we have similar tastes in music.

I don’t think I’ll ever get used to working. No matter what job I have in whatever city it’s almost unbearable doing this every single day. Ever since graduating I’ve been waiting for my summer vacation.
Dammit, I should have been a teacher.

Tonight I had an idea for a short story. I had only written a page when I hit a huge wall. For once I wish breath-taking stories just came to me — that I didn’t have to work so hard at writing. Has it always been this hard? I feel like I don’t remember it being this difficult. But maybe as I’m getting older, my memory isn’t as reliable as it used to be. Maybe it was always hard and something else has changed.

I am in a SLUMP. It’s relentless. Nothing interests me. Not even anything on Netflix. I’ve gone to bed early three nights in a row just out of boredom. I haven’t read anything in a week. I don’t want to go outside or play music. It could be that I’m starting to feel some anxiety about traveling. I sometimes get like this. It’s like, I should be excited — so much so that I can’t wait to get out of town. But all I want to do is lie in my bed because in a few days I’ll be completely deprived of its comfort.

My friend is moving away today.
I bought a travel pillow that has a snap in the front so it won’t slide around when I my head is resting on it during our flight. I also bought a power adaptor and ate a tuna salad sandwich for lunch.
Nothing else to report.

I just googled this today:
So that’s where I’m at.
I hope everyone’s weekend is going well!
My next blog will probably by my Iceland blog (squeeeeeeeeeee)!
