I've been keeping an online journal for a while. Often I'll be at work or at church or somewhere and experience something I want to write about, and if I had my laptop in front of me right then and there and the spare time, I'd right write then and there about what I'm thinking (I know I screwed up tenses and swapped homophones, and my right and left arrow keys aren't working). Usually I'll forget what I wanted to write about though...
...so anywho, here's just an every day journal entry. Today nothing really that interesting happened. I did discover that my right and left arrow keys aren't working on my keyboard (which is a real pain in the ass, especially when I'm editing blogs in progress) but that's about the most interesting thing. Other than that, I enjoyed a very nice day with both doors open and took the opportunity to air out my room and clean it again, once more arresting the onset of entropy. Then I walked to the store for sundries and came back home. It was an enjoyable walk, with Coldplay running through my head through most of it. A couple of times people honked at me. Sometimes they yell things as they pass like, "Hey man, what's up!" or "Yo whaddup chief!" and "Hey, wassssssup bro!". I work at 7-Eleven, you see, and because I do so much walking in public I have to deal with an odd sort of local fame. Usually I don't recognize these people who recognize me as they zoom by, but I guess that comes with the territory. I imagine it's kind of like being a local newscaster. People know me, but I don't know them.
Later I went to church for vigil but left after the vespers portion because my mood plummeted. That's been happening a lot lately; I'll be feeling ok and then I'll be feeling like crap. No warning, just a sudden drop in mood (sometimes it will go the other way, from crap to ok, but not as often). Heidi usually texts me when this happens, which is inexplicably awesome. I was about to say just now that I am so lucky to have Heidi in my life, but then I realized that luck has nothing to do with it. Thanks, God.
After I left vigil I walked to Wal Mart for more sundries. I don't really know what a sundry is, except that it's a good no-nonsense word to describe what-nots and hoo-jiggers. So, more sundries in hand, I walked back home and downloaded Harry Potter - The Sorcerers Stone and watched it. I haven't seen that movie in about a year and a half, since I first read the book. Two things I've discovered in the past two years - Harry Potter, and The Orthodox Church. Maybe I'll discover two more awesome things during the next two years.
Now it's just about time for bed. Tomorrow I get to take communion again. I need God's medicine right now. Lord, please make my heart a worthy vessel to contain Thy Holy Spirit.
