About Time.

UCLA runs in weeks, 10 of them, and I have come to organize my life in just that type of system. With every 1st week, I'd marvel at the amount of free time I'd have after another ten. Here now, is that free time promised after my very last Undie Run, after twelve ten week stints. It has been a week since I securely fastened the cap and slipped on the bag of a gown to walk across stages smiling in stilettos. I figured I'd spend it fashioning a blog like I had meant to, auspiciously 7 days post the end of my college career. In that time, I have (among other activities) packed and unpacked, eaten, slept enormous amounts, danced, cooked, and written haiku.

Five Haiku for Five Days

Monday 6/15
Cardboard boxes now
contain years of myself
merging on freeways

Tuesday 6/16
Haven't had TV
three of four years in college.
I missed Jeopardy.

Wednesday 6/17
WeHo street corner
Taking blood pressures again
I am home once more

Thursday 6/18
Gorgeous artichokes
smiled at me from Trader Joe's
So I took them home.

Friday 6/19
I ruminated
twenty minutes storming brain
to give it a name.

It is about time that I began this electronic blog. I've been strictly paper-journaling for all of college, but thought maybe it'd be a nice gesture to share my experiences after college for those interested. The blogspot seems to herald something more grown-up than the Xanga I had not-so-religiously tended to in high school, signaling some semblance of adulthood. It's something like attaining a qwerty cell phone keypad. Something like that.
