remembering the bricks


It’s a bit irritating how I keep forgetting my password to this thing. Sigh.

Anyway, I’m feeling a bit nostalgic. I don’t know how exactly, but I found myself at Purchase’s page at Wikipedia. Reading about things I knew first hand, and some things I had forgotten or never knew. It all brought back memories that now feel like I had been in a foreign film.

I tell people all the time that it was a great year and I learned a lot. Most of it taking place outside of class. In fact, I remember very little about any of the classes I took other than my poetry class, and two classes that were best thought of as history classes. It wasn’t so much the subject I was interested in, moreso the teachers. Very animated. And also a bit pretentious… but in a good way… like they had the right to be. And I didn’t really care, I was engaged in what they had to say… most of the time.

But really, what I remember and love most, are the people and relationships with those people I had. And pretty much every experience I had there. It’s all bittersweet because I loved it there but I know I could never go back to having things the way they were. Sure I could go back there, but it won’t be the same. I could always create new memories, but it won’t be the same. Sort’ve like a so-so sequel. I think if I were to have a sequel to follow up Purcahse, it would have to be another school entirely. And to think, that was about 4 years ago.

Indeed, it is time for me to return to a campus and learn more about the arts, people, and especially myself. I can only learn so much by watching movies back-to-back. I need the hands on experience.

So I may not make it to Virginia Beach this summer, and it doesn’t look like I’ll be in anymore plays this year, I should focus my energies in getting back into Middlesex. I really want something much more than a degree. I’m guessing and supposing I won’t get what I really want without one. But I really don’t know what life will bring me. I need to expect to surprised. I think that’s how that last line of Dan In Real Life went.

My room is a mess…

    Sterling invites Vilissa, Janelle, Neysha, and Nick to join him and Kortney for a special live episode discussing the regular nonsense such as appearing (and later disappearing) mirror monoliths in the desert. Sterling also asks a series of questions which yields a favorite response of "cotton balls of sheep."  This is also the last episode of 2020 […]

    What is Dreamstorm? We couldn't tell you but it's fascinating and you need to experience what we know of it (watch the YouTube clip here) and if it can help manifest the gingerbread Oreos that Sterling craves. Also, Sterling learns a startling fact about Kortney! Sterling also freaks Kortney out with the rules of the Elevator Game which may or may […]
