today some stranger came to sit next to us and asked cleare if he could live with her fam. but what was more strange was that he then sneezed white shit into our salades and then flew away like a discus.

we went home and sat around the living room and shouted DAMNNN at anyone who came to get mail and then hid.

oh and these kids came to use our mattresses - we thought they were going to steal our valuables (granola, violin, etc) - cleare's lips even turned blue. but they were pretty chill. they told us we could visit their town - so we took a 45 min train ride there but couldn't find their house. oh well must've missed it.

one year ago

a year ago today, i had my first day of class of my last fall quarter at sb. i had world agriculture at 9:30am and grammar and style at 11:00am. the first face i saw as i walked up the arts lecture hall after a long summer was a friend's. i would always sit in the back to people-watch in that class. then i would bike away on the loop but slowly so i could match up the bikes parked outside to the faces i watched inside. i did that everyday until it became cold in the mornings. and i sit here today and wait for the pacific winds to let me know it's winter again. but i have a feel that it'll never be cold in the mornings here.

focus: concentration of energy or attention on something.

i knew a boy

who worked in a box factory. He took the box trolley to work each day to make boxes with his hands. Once he saved up enough money, he withdrew it from a safe box at the bank to rent an apartment downtown. He settled down and found a job in an office setting. He was assigned a boxed-in cubicle to type away each day. After a few months, he made more money and bought a car. Now he could drive to work in his new box. At lunch hour one day he ran into a girl. She had mousey hair and eyes like olives. He sat on his bed that night and stood up in the morning. Then he biked to work.
