I am home sick.

I just feel low on energy. It's pretty boring. i would say that when I have no interest in dancing or the opposite gender, that's when..... well I don't know what, but it feels pretty boring.

I want to be a ninja- with, like, super powerful secret ninja powers

I'll bet ninjas don't get bored.

I am late up at night tonight, probably because of caffeine and have nothing to do.

this is why I am writing this

I am reading a book of poetry by Tony Hoagland right now and it is incredible. He is so smart and funny and real; it's like eating a delicious pastry- but only for your mind. It also just makes me so happy to read something by someone contemporary and really like it. I feel like he's my poet.

So, I thought I had some time to look for a place, but apparently I don't.

Amanda is perfectly fine having me around, but her landlord is flipping out because she thinks her apartment is too messy. This means that her landlord is screaming at her about her friends as well (which includes me). This in turn means I need to find someplace else to live.

I am freaking out emotionally about having to sleep in the same house has my mother. I do not want to be there at all.

Lately, the world does not seem to want to give me much slack in the housing department.

This will be the fifth place for me in under six months.

I suppose I can go back to the homeless shelter, but that would mean dropping out of GCC which is the most positive thing in my life. I think I will consider going to respite again.

I just found out that the state can now subpoena any communication between prisoners and the outside world now due to a Massachusetts supreme court ruling. Even prisoners who have not been convicted of anything.

My blood is boiling.

Better now.

The urgency of the moment can so easily wipe clean my mood. It's sort of amazing really. This is why I need to stay active and involved in things. Sheer boredom very well could be the death of me. It's an ADD thing really. I can't pay attention long enough to my emotions to sustain anything that long, therefore, my environment dictates my mood.

speaking of which: I talked to the recovery project about starting up an ADD support group there. They told me they would talk about it. fingers crossed.

We had our food & money drive for the family inn today at college and then I went to the green building committee meeting with Lisa (my masspirg organizer) to talk about encouraging the President and building liaison to be more serious about incorporating energy-saving and environmentally friendly design into the building. We're not so sure about a petition since they did that last semester and it didn't go anywhere with our president bob pura, but we definitely need to do SOMETHING. It would be incredible if GCC did this though, because there are SO many people there who really do care about the environment and we could be a beacon to other buildings in Greenfield to start being more green. It's really not all that hard! It just has to be a priority.

Also, had first African Dance Class (it was really fun), an interesting Tarot reading from Danielle last night (the cards say I'm going to be busy for awhile) and will run for AIDS tomorrow. Looks like the roster is going to be me, Thady and Denae.

I think I'm going to go to the party at Kiernan's. It's been awhile since I hung out with that crowd- it would be nice to catch up. Plus, there's ALWAYS good food and this time I won't have to deal with Jan (shudder).

Dear girls of the Grange,

Kindly make sure that your dress is thick enough that I cannot see your underwear. It also helps if you make sure you do not wear your blue underwear with that yellow dress or those things with all the stars on them with that white skirt. We will greatly appreciate it.

not that anyone here really cares, but I did rather well at my magic tournament today.

I need to work on some subtle aspects of deck building like mana curves, but I think my decks are just getting better and better. I came in second after a guy named David who is probably going to the world championships- so I dont feel bad losing to him whatsoever.

Below is, I hope, the link to an excellent article about health insurance and why a single payer plan makes sense even for people who get coverage through their employers or their spouse's employers. It's concise, sophisticated, elegant and convincing. It reminds me a little of a mathematical proof.


Sowocki turned me on to this. I really should learn how to properly embed links here though.

Does anyone know how to do this?
