Heart of darkness

I get depressed sometimes. It's easy to get depressed here, where there is a perpetuity of gray, cold days and where dead trees line every sidewalk. I used to love rainy days, until I started having to walk through them. In London, frigidity becomes a matter of course.

Back to reality

Day 1: Sleep 14 hours. Make as big a mess as possible without properly unpacking. Set seven alarms for tomorrow morning.

Day 2: Sleep through all seven alarms. Miss both classes. Sleep more. Buy ice cream. Eat all the ice cream. Maintain mess.

Day 3: Miss train. Goof off during class. Eat more than necessary. Wear white tank top that is more see-through than you thought. Watch TV. Continue to sleep in excess.

Goal: Make Day 4 better than Days 1-3.

Nagging thought: You probably won't.

- I get to drive.
- I get to see my family.
- I get to sleep in my own room.
- The weather is incredibly nice right now.
- My doggy is here.

- I have to drive.
- I can't escape my family.
- I have to sleep in my own room.
- The weather is incredibly stifling most of the time.
- My cat isn't here.

It can suck to be in Miami, but it can also suck to leave.
