Life at an Intersection

Chicago Phoenix, indemnity bonds, journaling, really really really want a zigazig ah, travel, books, travel books, relationships, values. It is hard to pinpoint precisely, but I'd say about 82% of what you read here is true. The rest is fictional nonfiction.

Make Our Dreams Come True

It is snowing again, big flakes, but the really light kind that just seem to hang in the air for a little longer than they should. I don't think I've seen the ground here on more than a couple of occasions in the last five weeks. It has been a true winter.

I've kind of resolved myself to the idea of working for a bank again, mostly due to the dearth of my other options. I had an interview at a credit union yesterday, actually only the second interview that I've managed to get in the month plus that I've been job hunting in earnest. I send out new applications and resumes every day and rarely get a response, but I know that my case isn't unique; everyone knows what unemployment is like. I'll just keep chugging along.

I watched High School Musical this weekend. Don't roll your eyes. Have you seen it? It is really fun, the songs are catchy, and I am always a sucker for a good musical anyway. Wholesome family entertainment. I know it isn't cool or edgy to watch G-rated movies or things that are popular with the Hannah Montana/Disney Channel crowd, but there has to be something in this: I don't feel bad or sad or used or slightly dirty when I'm finished watching it. Maybe you know what I mean. Take a movie like The Departed - it was really interesting and good and surprising and all, but there was so much violence and everyone was so awful to each other that at the end I just kind of felt glad that it was over and wanted it out of my head. Maybe this just says something about the place where I'm at right now: I want to feel happy and not dwell on the darker side of life.

A few nights ago I dreamed that Barack Obama was at my family's house for dinner. It was a good dream.

You watched HSM without me?? We had a whole conversation about watching it together when we were at Target after Christmas. I am now giving you a not so nice look.

Well, go ahead and watch it now, and then we can get HSM2 when you are here!

Words That I'm Living By - 5/2/2010

Time, as I've known it
Doesn't take much time to pass by me
Minutes into days, turn into months
Turn into years, they hurry by me
But still I love to see the sun go down
And the world go around

Dreams full of promises
Hopes for the future, I've had many
Dreams I can't remember now
Hopes that I've forgotten,
faded memories
But still I love to see the sun go down
And the world go around

And I love to see the morning
as it steals across the sky
I love to remember and
I love to wonder why
And I hope that I'm around
so I can be there when I die
When I'm gone

I hope that you will think of me
In moments when you're happy and you're smiling
That the thought will comfort you
On cold and cloudy days
if you are crying
And that you'll love to see
the sun go down
And the world go around
And around and around
