I just want to turn the lights on / In these volatile times...

I've been working again, a short-term contract job at Microsoft. It's nice, the people are cool, it's kind of boring and I need to do something real with my life, maybe.

I finally read "The Bell Jar" 15 years after my cousin recommended it, and wow it is so well written. I found myself rushing through the banal dialogue so I could read Plath's insightful comments (and normally I hate prose!)

I redid my binder from high school so it's more fitting with the times:



These days I have no idea what's going on in my life, where I'll be a week or two from today. It's not that bad but it's not that cool, either...

Oh yay! I loved the Bell Jar. Heavy book, but so good.

I can imagine the uncertainty would be a mixed bag... but so is having a routine. {shrug}

Yeah the beginning of The Bell Jar really sucks you in, it's rare to find books that do that (to me anyway.)
