today in "Art and Design" i sat next to the mysterious grad student. as professor obler continued on and on about theo van doesburg, he seemed lost in his thoughts, staring straight ahead with his eyes closed. i would have thought he was sleeping if his hand wasn't vigorously twirling about the desk as if there were a piano in front of him. for awhile he practiced his scales before he embarked on a classical piece which i heard to be beethoven's sympohny no. 9 in d minor. the incident really made me smile and i'm not quite sure why.

i PMSed hard this weekend, and when reading victor hugo's "demain des l'aube", i started crying.


Demain, dès l'aube, à l'heure où blanchit la campagne,
Je partirai. Vois-tu, je sais que tu m'attends.
J'irai par la forêt, j'irai par la montagne.
Je ne puis demeurer loin de toi plus longtemps.

Je marcherai les yeux fixés sur mes pensées,
Sans rien voir au dehors, sans entendre aucun bruit,
Seul, inconnu, le dos courbé, les mains croisées,
Triste, et le jour pour moi sera comme la nuit.

Je ne regarderai ni l'or du soir qui tombe,
Ni les voiles au loin descendant vers Harfleur,
Et quand j'arriverai, je mettrai sur ta tombe
Un bouquet de houx vert et de bruyère en fleur.

i left his office today feeling more academically inspired than i've ever felt. i was giddy at the thought of the future, all that is left to learn, how much i know. i am 19 years old. i am a young girl, and there are so many years ahead of me to learn, to become who i need to be. i am going to start taking german next year in my trek to fulfill my dreams. it's intimidating to begin a new language but it's not too late to start anything. it's exciting to embark on a new language. it's exciting to embark into the future with confidence and passion.

i hope this feeling isn't fleeting.

it's sort of silly but here's the thing:

leaving for college in august, i left my ipod at home and so was without much of my music. i had some undeniably good tunes left on itunes, but i'm at home now, and for the first time in a long time, i'm listening to ani difranco, and it's such a sense of peace.

i went to the library this afternoon, picked up a vonnegut, and drove over to barnes&nobles. at each red light, i pulled open the book and stole a few sentences before the light would turn green. i thought about how it was dangerous, possibly stupid, but essentially necessary. all the while, my bass was crunkin' to mos def&kweli.

i'm loving life at JHU, but i'm loving life here in cornwall too. i love that i have two homes for me right now and both feel absolutely wonderful, comfortable and i have great friends in both places. it's a good feeling.



i was sick last week, bedridden with mono, literally unable to move or stand up for too long. i felt like i was 75 with my life over and i could not wait until i could walk, run, dance, skip, eat, hug, kiss, live again.

i just love life.
