Trucking on. Been listening to Chance, Kanye, Kirk Franklin. Thinking a lot about God. I may be drifting back towards Christianity?

In any case, not at a place where I did the Ash Wednesday thing today. But maybe next year.

Also working on spending less of my energy being angry at things. My friends frequently seem to sort of forget about me? Like, just not mentioning plans, not inviting me to things. But it's not not wanting me there; as soon as I like text "what's up" or something, they'll say "we're all hanging out, come through! we miss you." But I always have to be the one to ask what's up. And I got pretty tired of that.

So instead I'm just being more okay with being alone. Hanging out in the library café, getting work done on time, reading for pleasure. It's pretty nice.

A friend that graduated posted this photo and it hit me pretty hard.

That poem gets me, too. I think if there's anything one "deserves" -- it might be this.

My friends are pretty much the same. As the Dutch say, life is a party but you have to put the decorations up yourself.

That poem hits close to home, man.
