Well it's once again been a long time since I've written in here. It seems like I spent a lot more time on LJ in high school. I don't know if that;s because I found my life so much more interesting, or just because my homies all had livejournals they updated pretty regularly back then. My life feels like so much more of a whirlwind now, and I don't usually pause to reflect in an organized way. I'm pretty happy right now. I've basically enjoyed my classes this semester and I haven't been as intensely lonely as last year. I don't get to see a lot of people but that's because of my work/school schedule, not for lack of interest. Finals are upon us again and I'm dreading them. I'm behind in readings and things, but I'm thankful that whenever it's time for finals or a major due date I tend to get this "oh well," fatalistic attitude. I still study but I don't tend to get anxious. They shouldn't be terrible. Computer Science is what it is, the Latin is just a matter of parking myself somewhere and reviewing, I'm very interested in the American History, and in American Studies I get to write a paper about crossdressing!
I am really looking forward to going home, though. I've been feeling kind of nostalgic for high school lately. I happened upon a short story Raffi wrote at Yale and it was so funny, and so Raffi. It had hilariously erudite references to things and the sentence "Chief Loicano is as corrupt as church Latin, and as much of an institution." Priceless. In general, though, I think a big part of it is that my friends feel more disparate than last year. That's mainly just a feeling, though. I see Grace regularly, and I saw Juliet, Johanna, and Lizzie pretty recently too. I guess it's because our new college lives are not so new anymore that it sometimes feels like I'm losing track of people. I just remind myself that it's more a matter of my own insecurity than anything else. These people are some of my best friends, and I trust that it will stay that way.
Back to the present: I've written a couple more songs and played some more open mics since last semester. I had a fun if intimate gig at a pizza place in Allston (I ate free!). Base Trip Records is getting off the ground, although I think finals and holidays are slowing us down again. There is the prospect of recording in a real recording studio, and of a proper gig at a real venue, so both of those are exciting. Beyond that, I'm applying to be a Latin TA this summer and beginning to get study abroad plans in order. My goal is Rome next Fall and South Africa in the Spring of '09.
