"In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I've been turning over in my mind every since..." ~The Great Gatsby, first sentence
I usually post a few random notes on a Thursday, because by that point in the week a few random notes are the best I can seem to compose. This week, however, has been far too topsy-turvy to manage even that much. For me, Thursday was my last workday of the week. Therefore, Thursday felt more like a Friday, and not being at school on Friday just felt altogether wrong. (I can only imagine how I will manage Monday once it finally arrives.) I am in Atlanta this weekend for a wedding. Correction: I am near Atlanta. The specific town has varied, depending upon the particular festivity. Then, there's the little detail of the time change. My phone updates automatically; my computer does not. I just figured this out. Time is apparently relative at this point, depending on which device I am holding. This can be problematic when adhering to a schedule of wedding events...
I am explaining all of this to basically justify the fact that, there have been moments in which I have been completely unaware of the day, time, or place in which I find myself. Obviously, I need to travel more.
To add to the madness, I packed clothes appropriate for May. The weather more closely resembles March. Again, that's just wrong.
I know this sounds whiny, but I really am laughing over every detail. From the moment I woke up Monday morning, this has proved to be a very roll-with-it kind of week. In the end, I have managed to do one thing right: before rushing out of the house for our drive Thursday night, I snagged my old, tattered copy of The Great Gatsby for a bit of on-the-road rereading. I will be ready for the movie release next weekend.
