They tell us that we should write every day. Today just hasn’t been one of them. It’s been a ride through everything imaginable. Impossible day at my invisible job not having enough work to do, and also talking with my friends to get my stuff back I left at their house.
Sadly, I went to pick up notecards and apparently the notecards were the sticky kind. I was peeved off at this point so I used them to brush off my cats. Nothing can stop post-it-not sticky quite like cat hair. I don’t know why.
My aunt yelled at me for not taking enough initiative in my job search. But I feel I’ve searched everywhere. I’m at a point of going in circles. Circles are not fun. I even hated circles when I was a Wiccan, I just passed it off as something fun. Or at least what I call the amature ones. I just don’t feel it like others do, or say that they do. I force the experience on myself instead of enjoying it. I do admit though, I love the opening and closing rituals. I have to go to both.
Here we are in another kind of circle, the circle of my interests. How I continually talk around circles as well. I don’t know why I do but it’s just how it goes. Some of my interests go over some people’s heads. I don’t know why I grasp on ideas so well, forms as plato calls them. It just works that way. I have visuals for everything and I don’t even think I could write about it.
Example, I’d be reading say, In Search of Shrodinger’s cat. I get engrossed to a point I don’t even read the text. It’s like watching nova in my head. Only without the cool quoty people because I don’t konw what half of them look like (although I have q is for quantum so I do know what SOME look like). The weird thing is that even when watching NOva I go refering to the images in my head, I don’t see what’s on the screen. THAT is how I can sit there and read these technical things. Because as I’m learning them, I’m creating my own visualizations of said systems that I’m working with.
But going back here, that’s why some of my interests are varying. Because I can visualize whatever I read as I’m reading it. Even novels I’m say, Bella in the Twilight series, being chased by a rather enthusiastic Edward. That’s why I can read these books, and laugh out loud, or actually cry, or get frustrauted, or mad at characters. Because I’m living their lives.
I think that’s what got me writing in the first place as a kid. I used to enact stories, just like normal kids (although, all of mine seem to be me, alone, but mabye that’s just my imagination) me and my cousins used to play “Baby Sitter’s Club” where we’d pretend to be characters from the thing. Or we’d be characters from “beetlejuice”. I’d be on a bus, or someplace boring, and I would mentally do this in my head. I’d escape into my own world, we could say, instead of reality.
I found out that as a young kid, when I was put to bed, I wouldn’t sleep until about 10 or so. I do remember my mom making me go to bed at 7 when the lights were still on. I lived on Seventh Avenue, at least in the more conscious memories. I’d look out my side window and see the skyline and think about it all. I’d imagine things from books, enact things, only it would all be downtown. Even now I have this weird attraction to it.
These stories were what kept me sane, I think, through the torment and stress of school. I’ll save all that crap for my biography, juicy as it was.
I remember writing my first story in sixth grade. Not even CARING about any of the people around me reading it and scrutinizing it. There was a terrible thunderstorm coming to my school and it got dark as night out there. I know it was pure plagarism but I remember there being a story about a witch who stole the sun back when I was in elementary school. I wrote it out.
*dusts off the nostalgia* okay. Anywhos. Going back here to the topic. I didn’t do anything today really. Went to psuedo-work, picked up a few things, then went home. I played around, tried to stay awake, and then watched The Big Bang Theory. It’s sad when you understand what they’re talking about! It’s even weirder when you’re jealous of the stuff they have! And it’s only because I think they raided my thinkgeek.com wishlist.
Rambling again, I know. oh well. Deal.
