My roommates left town for Florida, yesterday! I know it bad to say this, but I cannot help it - I feel liberated! Finally! I can prance around the house naked! I can play music as loud as I would like! I can stay up late without worrying about Clinicals or their jobs or their sleeping-patterns or their judgments - There are no guilt trips this week, no sir-ee! I can breathe this stale basement air without worrying if I will be scrutinized for it....!
....It is a little hard for me living here. I love Patrick (I love him so much)..... And our roommates are great roommates (they really are, they do all the stuff roommates should do).... It is just that I feel as if they do not like me very much. Not sure if it is my job? Or the fact that they run marathons and I type on my computer all day? Not sure what it is - All I know, is that I am pretty good at reading people (it is part of my job) and what I read off of them is that they wish that I was somewhere else...
Keep hoping that when Pat and I move to Austin in August, we will find some silly childish roommates that love life - and take nothing seriously... that would be brilliant. Icecream socials! Fingerpainting extravaganzas! Tea parties on someone's pavilion! Perhaps, I dream too big....
Hey hey! My new 5-string banjo came in the mail yesterday! Whooo! It is SO beautiful! This is the first time I have bought myself something in months.... Been adamantly watching Youtube tutorials all morning, trying to become a Master-Banjo-Player! - Got the Earl Scruggs roll down ....moved onto learning some simple chords that do not tear my fingers apart. My goal is to locate a Banjo-teaching guru out here in Cleveland... it would get me out of the house and perhaps I could meet some musical types... tutorials can only take you so far, you know?
Loaned Matthew my Sookie Stackhouse novel set that PD got me for Christmas.... Just got an email from his this morning, here is what he had to say:
"I am addicted to sookie stackhouse. I am on book 4. I cannot sleep. I cannot eat I can barely get myself to work because I want to see how my new friend is fairing in her fictional life. I had my roommate, Sarah, read the first one and she fucking made fun of it mercilessly for being so stupid but guess what shes on book two so that is that. Florida! I am just excited to be something different for awhile, in the sun. I love you! Florida is like two days away its fucking crazy I am so tired I cannot think I love you i love yOu I love you..........matthew"
And that is correct - Florida is in two more days.... Sarasota, Tampa, Orlando, New Smyrna, Miami, Key West.... all hail the sunshine state! Adventure is about to ensue.... : )
