consider it dug

Romanticism is the strong belief in an ideal. That ideal may be romance, but it also may be the desire for a better world, or the belief that humans are inherently good (Mencius, anyone?).

I am a romantic: I strongly believe that there is more to life than this. That's my mantra and I'm stickin' to it.

Racquetball with Kendal + French "studying" with Amanda + leveling in WoW with Amanda & James + seeing James' spiffy new 'do = one awesome day. I may go with Kendal to watch Harry Potter at that SAB thing at 9:30. It's still up in the air, so I guess we'll see what happens. The best part of the day was Kendal voluntarily joking about "blue balls." Ho-ly shit. It was almost as great as getting into genes and Handel. Not to mention the introductory ebonics lesson.

I ended up choosing Dead of Night by Randy Wayne White. What little of it I've read is pretty good.

I never actually got started on my outline. I have the characters, a few scenes (one of which is already semi-written), and a fledgling plot. Some keywords from a scene that I'll share: a girl with her name on her ass, a party, drugs and alcohol, the dreamtime. This novel will have its basis in academics; intelligence is valued in my world--again, I'm a romantic. It's to be expected. Relationships are important from the first glance to the last, bitter snarl. Death will be viciously ripping a hole in the world and cards will be clutched close to a worn and tattered polo and perfectly faded Gap jeans. Take a glance and you'll understand.

It all really does make sense to me. But that's because it's coming. At last and for once, it's coming.
