Right now I find myself lounging on my bed doing homework, yet again. (Well procrastinating currently..) It is a Wednesday. Bright, warm, obnoxiously jubilant – and I haven’t done one thing unrelated to #CreComm today. I can’t think of one thing I feel like doing to blow off some steam? I’m too lazy to venture outdoors, I still only have basic cable so TV is out.. Guess I’ll get back to scouring the internet for Anti-Republican/Anti-Mitt Romney facts. I’m writing an editorial on the subject, and gotta say, I don’t think it will be too hard to find material. .
Also, veering off topic completely, I really enjoy this bit from the movie Garden State.
[Andrew Largeman: You know that point in your life when you realize the house you grew up in isn’t really your home anymore? All of a sudden even though you have some place where you put your shit, that idea of home is gone.
Sam: I still feel at home in my house.
Andrew Largeman: You’ll see one day when you move out it just sort of happens one day and it’s gone. You feel like you can never get it back. It’s like you feel homesick for a place that doesn’t even exist. Maybe it’s like this rite of passage, you know. You won’t ever have this feeling again until you create a new idea of home for yourself, you know, for your kids, for the family you start, it’s like a cycle or something. I don’t know, but I miss the idea of it, you know. Maybe that’s all family really is. A group of people that miss the same imaginary place.
Sam: [cuddles up to Andrew] Maybe.]
For some reason that line, ‘it’s like you feel homesick for a place that doesn’t even exist’ really resonates with me. Thoughts?
