I was hunting for ideas when I came across this. Enjoy.
My house is cold tonight. The floor creeks in protest and I drag myself into the bathroom,
I’ve spent more time on my feet today than my body has wanted me too; It’s upset with
me. I stare into the bathroom mirror and my pasty face and strawberry hair stare back at
me, with an expression that says, “You look like shit, go do something about it.” I give
the reflection the finger. I’m noticing more and more blond streaks in my hair as the
red starts to take its summer vacation, not like anyone really noticed the red in my hair
before. Just like no one notices that my eyes aren’t blue. People aren’t very observant.
I’m not saying I want people to stare at me, I’m just saying; keep your fucking mouths
shut, that’s all. My face looks less than impressed with me in the mirror. “Fuck Off.” I
tell it “make this blond a green eyed strawberry.”

I wrote this about two years ago but I can’t really remember the context. It made me giggle so I thought I’d share it.
My random thoughts one day in college.
I’m walking through the aisles of the local convenience store looking for something to eat or
read. They only thing that is actually convenient about this store is that’s its open and I am bored.
Earlier on today I was a pub with my dad, he felt like going out for a drink and I just happened to
be home. The bar tender was a women in her 40’s and made easy conversation with my dad until
she saw me standing behind him. She suddenly and aggressively asked me how old I was. I told
her flatly that I’m 26. She stood there for a moment in disbelief until my dad spoke up and said
that I’m 26. She thought I was 19. Well, at least I don’t look 18 anymore.
When I look in the mirror every day, I don’t look 18-19 to myself. Then again I know how old I
am, the rest of the world doesn’t.
What the fuck am I writing? This is a pile of shit.
Wow. That actually felt good to say.
I’m looking at a picture of myself
And I’m vaguely translucent
Holy fuck, I’m tired.
I’ve been sleeping all day
How can I be tired?
I just want to play my goddamn playlist itunes!
