Status Update

I had my first writer’s group since college, and it was nice reading my stuff aloud and getting feedback for something I wrote. It was fun and invigorating and I want to do it again. I realized I’m also very vulgar, and that’s something I might need to change, especially if I want to attract women readers.

I’m about to finish watching Gilmore Girls. I have two episodes left, and I’m going to watch them right after this entry. I don’t know what to say about it except that I really really liked this show, and I know I’m going to rewatch it again in a few years. I’m going to miss Stars Hollow and Lorelei and Rory Gilmore.

I went to the park and read a little bit of White Teeth by Zadie Smith. It was such a beautiful day, but the park benches are uncomfortable and there were seagulls everywhere. I was afraid they were going to shit on me or something. I miss the USC campus. That place had beautiful scenery with very comfy benches. I remember lying down on one and talking to a friend for hours and hours and not moving one bit. I haven’t had that thought in years. Wow.

Before I start writing each entry, I write the number of the day since starting this blog, which is also the number of consecutive days I’ve kept it up to date, and today it’s Day 280. I started this blog 280 days ago, and I’m closer to the end than I am to the beginning. I don’t know if I’m going to miss updating it every day. I won’t stop writing, but there’s a difference when it’s online than when it’s private. I’ll see later, right?

This was a very long status update, wasn’t it? Not much is happening in life. And today, I’m okay with that.
