I have a cold and I'm sitting here smoking cigarettes and drinking theraflu
Life is great
It is bitterly cold and the brake line just went on the lumina.
I went to a NA meeting tonight with an old friend from high school, she spent years of her life smoking crack. Now she goes to NA and lives with her mom in a giant farm house.
Everyone at the NA meeting was a burnout, everyone was either a hippy, black guy from the ghetto, a harley guy or woman, or a large over weight white woman in her forties with a wal mart haircut.
Everyone gave each other hugs and told each other they were special.
I liked it, it was like high school in some weird way. That feeling of being in a small group of people, like football practice or band.
People like that.
People like to have support groups and friends and common purposes.
It is so weird to me, all those modern shit, air conditioners and cell phones, but mankind still desperately seeks a tribe. Churches, emo kids, republicans, football team fans, punks, etc.
I picked classes for the next semester, since I am still registered for an associate of the arts degree, i decided to pick classes I want to take for sure, so I picked Social and Political Philosophy, Political Thought, Political Sociology, and Law and Society.
After that I have only three classes left to take and I graduate.
To do what
considering I just spent two hours in a room with people who spent feeding themselves and smoking crack at the same time I think I can survive.
Maybe keep going, I would only have five more political science classes to take after this semester, and finish six general requirements and a minor in something, which is 17 classes which is like five more semesters.
But who knows
I can only take four classes at a time without freaking out
I'm 28 years old
I go to NA meetings for fun
I read Saint Augustine for fun
I drink theraflu and feel good about life
Hopefully those classes will help me the write the book
I might call it City of Boredom now
The book will be about how a well functioning government desires boredom on their territory.
A land where people are bored
boredom means that people are going to work, everyone is pleasantly fed, nobody is at war with each other, people sit on the porch and drink coffee in the morning. There are games where people show their muscles. People play cards and make jokes.
Nothing really happens.
Do people like boredom?
I would say yes
because non-boredom is excitement
and excitement is like violence and having cancer and getting raped or having your house lit on fire
it probably won't be called that though
it might be called something else
it isn't important today
i've rambled enough and I feel sleepy.
