On sunday things were looking okay until my mom exploded over a spot of curry on the wierd fancy thing she has on the dining room table. This lead to a HUGE fight and discussions of suicide by both sides (she went first and did the crying screaming threatening GET OUT GET OUT NOW thing while I mostly laughed and rolled my eyes) that ate up a bunch of time and energy. I thought about posting something suicidal here on LJ but decided to be mature and just let the feelings pass and get back to living my life. But it sucked most of the energy out of the day and I dozed through pregame stuff until the superbowl which was awesome. The arrogant rams got knocked off their high horse, the game came down to the very last play and the Patriots won unequivocally.
I wonder what that's a signal of? Nothing? The success over patriotic America over any foe? Or the underdog taking down the big guys (which would be BAD for the USA.) Anyway it was so satisfying it seemed almost scripted.
Today I went to the store to buy a Kant book, realized my credit card had expired, had to go back and get cash, and managed to read some of it before class, which was lucky because there was a quiz like I thought there might be. I think I did alright although some GIRLS were cheating after class while people were picking up paper assignments which irritated me somewhat.
Anyway my big thought right now is whether I want to continue going to anthropology. On the one hand it's kinda interesting and doesn't look that tough, on the other I could use the extra time to relax and kick back and keep up with anime and video games. That's the problem, I don't feel I'll use the spare time effectively except to avoid breaking down, but I'm not so sure I'll break under the stress anyway. My current thought is to go for it because it would clear up my schedule in the future and it looks interesting and horizon broadening. Plus I feel like the only reason I'm still doing video games and anime is that I'm lonely and they are the only subjects I can find people to talk to me about. Maybe I should just go with what interests ME rather than what interests those I want to BE around and see what comes of that. Perhaps I shall find new friends or adapt the ones I have (I seem to somehow have beat it into Jing that he should treat me in a certain way and he's actually been pretty interesting to talk to since the reconciliation) The problem with that is that it leaves me with VERY little time, like right now I have to get going and I'm not sure how my personal progression and exercise will react to that kind of time pressure. But maybe I NEED to throw myself into scholarship to emerge as a stronger independant less wishy washy person. Plus it'll help me forget about E and the feelings of loss that still exist there. I wish I could still afford jeff twice a week because it feels like one is simply not enough to get everything I want to say said, but if I did that I'd have to stop the impulse buys of entertainment which I use to medicate my depressive moods and I still need those. Life is so complex and I'm so BUSY but for some reason I don't really want to slow down. More later after class...thanks for listening livejournal. You're always there for me.
