My BACK is sore from running (?). My legs far outpace my lungs. I’ve never felt so out of shape in my life. Time to change some shit, ferrl.
I used to see you every day
I danced around your folk and soul
I danced to all your fucking soul
I left you with your nose a bleedin’
And your toes creepin’ around
So mundane and incomplete
Hand me down my pants and get me off this street"
— Let me be drunk and relive my week and fall in love with the damn rock again. This will happen because I’m here and now.
i miss my boyfriend and my cats
especially my cats

scientificcanadian asked: hello :) I was just curious to know what you studied in college. Congratulations on finishing the year and best of luck getting a job this summer :D
Sorry, haven’t been on this thing in a while and it didn’t notify me of any messages. I can’t tell how delayed I am in responding to this. Thanks for the congrats! I studied Ecology & Evolutionary Biology in college.
I am driving in Engram’s car with him in the passenger seat. We’re driving over a bridge on our way to a hospital, it is nighttime. I know that coming up is a certain stretch of bridge that is split in the middle. On the other side of the ridge is a clear road to the right and a construction gate or similar obstruction. So I’m aware that jumping the gap takes certain strategy involving moving a little to the right side of the street, then driving straight and fast. We’re approaching the gap and I either forget or get flustered and slip, sending the car flying crookedly to the left. Engram and I both know that we’re done as we watch a dark sea approaching quickly. Engram says, “It’ll pull us down”, as if trying to incite some exit strategy in either of our minds once we’re submerged. We don’t hit water — instead we hit a commercial truck on a barge; while the car is crumpled we are unhurt. I notice our seat belts.
I am walking home in an early part of post-sunset night, probably around 9 or 10. I am walking only a little bit behind and to the left of a man who suddenly stops and throws a naked infant into the middle of the road. I look to my left across the street and see a police officer shining a spotlight in my and the man’s direction. I look right toward the man and in the half circle of light that’s on him I notice a charcoal shiny steel that I recognize to be a gun and I walk ahead. Though I think the cop was in pursuit of him the man catches up to me and pulls me into a crouching position behind a wooden fence; with the gun to my head he says one sentence to me (which I can’t remember) but I think had something to do with coming up with a story. Though I don’t remember, I’m pretty sure I got out of that situation.
I called D**** to tell him about the two crazy stories of the day. A*** answers and D**** and J*** are in the background. I’m talking to A*** but they’re all having fun/being slightly rambunctious. I have trouble getting him/them to listen to the story
EDIT: Engram and I do make it to the “hospital” where we end up in a comfy room with a bunch of people lounging and chatting. I may or may not have known some of them. One guy casually mentions how bad it is driving over that bridge. I enthusiastically try to share what happened to me and Engram but people are too happy and talking over it.
— 7/13/12. It’s weird finding old dream journals. Should keep those again.
