I’m writing three entries tonight. For those of you trying to keep up, there’s this one, one I meant to write a couple days ago, and an old entry I wrote at the time and saved locally to my computer but forgot to post online.
Today started auspiciously, with a beautiful sunrise sending me off on my way back to California, as if God were saying, “This is a new beginning, all will be well, just relax.” Scarce moments after taking in this natural beauty and taking a picture, three birds crapped in rapid succession on my windshield, as if God were saying, “Ha ha! I had you going there for a second! You should have seen the look on your face!”
The rest of the day followed suit. I found out that UPS screwed me and JET never got my application, so my Japan plans are fucked once more. Directly after finding this out, I got trapped in a traffic jam for an hour and a half. Next to a flatbed hauling two giant canisters marked “RADIOACTIVE.” And after all of this, I didn’t even get mutant superpowers.
The day was marked also by a fair share of random hilarity:
Even given the bizarre levity of my day, I can’t help but feel like life is actively going out of its way to defeat me at every turn. All of my best laid plans have been brought to the utmost ruin at this point. JET was the one I had left. I got a lot of past issues resolved while back home, but every idea I’ve ever had for the future is quashed as soon as it pops up.
Sans a future and sans a past, die of fate as yet uncast, back to the fray, and forth to LA.
(I just made that up. It’s cheesy and the meter sucks, but I also kind of like it)
