...flowing like molasses in January.
I can't seem to find anything interesting to put in my portfolio. Powertools are only so interesting. After a while, everything becomes cliché.
I have a few ideas, but all of them require time and gathering of materials which aren't readily available. This is why I'd like to have a studio of my own. And be independently wealthy so that I wouldn't have to work on anything but my art.
Art? Whazzat? I haven't done any of that in a while. Final year of college maybe?
Anyway. I'm still happy. Just uninspired. Hell, look at this entry. This entry is what my photos would look like if they were text.

I don't know why, but on my way home I was hit with a new found disease. "Sheer Happiness".
I found myself reviewing my life to date. Through all it's ups and downs, I've still managed to find happiness. I have the most wonderful girl in my life, I love her dearly and can see our future, in a rough draft, laid out before us. I'm finally securing myself financially. I'm feeling physically better than ever before (one slight ailment, but it's clearing) and I just feel an overpowering urge to laugh and cry. All at the same time.
Is it possible for all this to come out at once? Some people experience waves of depression suddenly with no warning. The opposite must be true. Where there is light there is dark, up, down. Sorrow. And then Happiness.
I wish I could bottle this and give it out to everyone I see.

So I might be able to get my hands on a record player for $15, but I need a phonostage. And I don't know where to find one of those. And if I do find one, I don't wanna pay too much for it. Nicole and I have many records between us, and a record player is high on our list of things we must have for when I move in.
And a new sofa bed. Which we put a downpayment on.
And some bookshelves.
'n other miscellaneous stuff.
This is getting exciting. I think the thing I'm most excited about is knowing that I'll be falling asleep beside Her and waking up in the same place every morning.
I need a vacation from both my jobs so that I can let the whole thing sink in fully.
By the way, go see Farenheit 9/11. Having read Dude, Where's My Country?, much of the stuff I already new. But seeing it on screen added more dimension to what I already knew.
The footage from Iraq was deeply disturbing, but very necessary.
I've heard a lot of lefty's damning Micheal Moore for his outspoken way, saying that what he does isn't documentary, and that he edits things for his own message, and therefore how can you accept what he has to say.
I say everythin you read, see or hear is biased in some way. No matter where your news comes from, it has some else's views peppered in somewhere. It's just whether you agree or not. And in 9/11 you see and hear some pretty awful unedited material. Card-carrying Republicans are even talking of voting the other way.
Something's up in that country.
Not like that needs to be pointed out.
