Recovering from a Nap

November 3, 2004


Bush has been re-elected and I have absolutely no faith in his promise to unite our divided union, but Kerry couldn’t have done it either. I’m depressed, but it’s not just the election. An estranged friend is becoming more estranged, and I don’t know how to reach her. I would write her a letter but I don’t have an address to send it to. In order to do that, I would have to call her dad who I absolutely despise. It would be worth it. I want a beer, maybe a couple, but I have to go to my night class; I’ve skipped way too much this semester. It’s almost over. After next semester, I will be graduated. Then what? I’m aging fast and approaching the inevitable 30. I’m moving through life faster than I thought possible.
