So we can all just agree that Black Friday turns seemingly normal humans into homicidal maniacs, right? Vonnegut says that West Point does the same thing, but thats neither here nor there.
I went a week or so without internet. We took the Marching Band to Chicago for the Thanksgiving Day parade, and the hotel had no internet. Actually it did, but I had to pay for it, and who’s got the energy anymore? So I went without. Here’s what I realized: I don’t actually need the internet. Facebook is worthless and a bringer of insecurities, HuffPost is usually a huge bummer about the human race, and NFL.com is hard to read the week after a Chiefs loss. Other than online classes, I actually have no basic need for internet. Interesting.
I had a week off of college, and I may have turned back into an adult. Not to worry, I have to go back today (Yes, on a sunday) for a concert. I’d say its the worst possible scenario for a nontrad with kids. 1:30 reherasal, 7:30 concert. There goes the sunday, folks.
I’ve been thinking lately about how bad of a car accident I would have to find myself in to accomplish the sweet mixture of 1) missing college classes just long enough for a break, but not long enough that I couldn’t recover, 2) keep me in the hospital just long enough to get some sympathy from the professors and only have to make up a fraction of the work, 3) no death, I dont have time, 4) No long term injuries. A few broken things, and maybe re-learning how to walk? I’m still planning..
So, yeah, I’d say I’m not a fan of going to campus today..
If I’m in a mild but slightly serious accident on the way up, and the only logical explanation from the Highway Patrol is that the driver of the Volkswagen Golf steered his vehicle into a street light, or bridge embankment, no need to worry, I should be fine in a few weeks. Ya know, right around Christmas break.
