Leapdragon 2016 - Aron Hsiao Was Here

Leaving this library. Finally.  §

Last post of the day, probably. I’m leaving the Regenstein for Harper. I won’t bother to get the PC out over there, it’s all down to reading now. Day’s tally:

Pages written: 9
Content grade: A-
Organization grade: B+
Theoretical completeness grade: C
Hours in this chair: 5+
Song I’m gonna have in my head next: Rocket
Number of stupid colon-terminated lines: 7 (incl.)

I wonder what life would have been like if I had never taken the Caldera job. I wonder what life would have been like if I hadn’t stopped seeing Lis. I wonder what life would have been like if I had moved to Portland. I wonder what life would have been like if I had gone into the Peace Corps instead of applying to grad schools. I wonder what life would have been like if I had gone to SUNY instead of Chicago.

I can’t really even get a handle on what life is like now, and I’m in the middle of it. Forest? Trees? Hell, I can’t even tell light from dark, day from night, me from anyone outside of me. I’ll be lucky if I can figure out how to get out of this damn library.

Maybe it’s just time to put some more hours into Project 51.

I came that close (pinches fingers). I had talked on the phone to my advisor at SUNY B. at length on several occasions, had read his books, was studying the campus and the surrounding area, had told all of my family members and professors that I was going to SUNY.

Then I came here instead. I’m glad I did, though. In spite of the amount of bitching I do, things have been good here.

I really gotta stop bitching and try to live on the bright side.

Hey, there’s a first time for everything.

SUNY vs. Chicago… I doubt it…

If you had gone to SUNY perhaps we would have made up sooner than we did.
