Today’s a bit of a low day. I’ve been having some intrusive thoughts. Those are pretty scary. This is the first time it’s happened, though, so I’ll keep an eye on it.

I’ve recently started reading again. I’m over halfway through George R.R. Martin’s A Game of Thrones. It’s good. I like it. Not much else to say there. I bought two new books last week–one is a zombie book, which is a first for me. I don’t usually read those at all. I figure I’ll start it and A Clash of Kings after I finish A Game of Thrones.

In other news, pineapple-orange juice is very good. Tastes sort of like a smoothie.

Sometimes I don’t know what my friend thinks being home means for me. I understand that she’s stuck without a car and without anything to do. I understand she’s in the area. But just because I’m home doesn’t mean anyone else is home. I don’t have a license, and if even if I did, I don’t have a car. The suburbs are huge, and cabs are expensive.

Part of me wonders if it comes from her growing up in a small, isolated town. School is the same way–you can walk anywhere without it being overtly sketchy, and absolutely everything is within an hour’s walking distance. When I see her texts asking me if the cab ride would cost less this time, or if the walk was shorter than before, or if the bus could get her back before curfew, or if my dad can shuttle us somewhere, I don’t always know how to respond. I feel bad for her, having nothing to do for much of the time. But at the same time, it’s not my responsibility to keep her entertained, and it’s not my parents’ responsibility to drive her places. Moreover, the city is not the safest place to just walk around for hours on end when you don’t know where you are or where you’re going.

I don’t know what the point of this was. Just a rant, I suppose. There’s not really anything I can do about it.

My mom got back from her conference in St. Louis yesterday. As she was showing me pictures, she scrolled past one of the airplane seat lights and vents. I asked her why she’d taken it–we’ve been in lots of planes before, so it was nothing new. She said it was because I’d told her to take lots of pictures.
