Stranded on campus with nothing to do but write. I have about 30 minutes to kill before my ride gets out of class. I’m hungry, thirsty, and I have a headache, but my classes for the day are over. It’s the second week of the fall semester and so far so good. I have yet to see Jerry, a blast from the past I have successfully been able to dodge, and although I have presentations to give in not one but two classes, my fear level is not as high as it has been. I’m sick of school and ready to get on with my life, but I won’t be finished with my BA for another year. Who knew college would take this long? I’m burnt out and ready to improve my resume. It’s time to replenish my supply and brainwash myself into believing in something again. Yellowstone is once again a part of my plans and the only real thing I’ve got going on.
