Mood: world-weary
Music: Air Traffic - She Never Even Told Me Her Name

I've made my biannual escape from the 'ville. Chicago is okay, pretty boring, as per usual. I've listened to a lot of music, read a little, and wrote a little. I'll probably do the same thing for the next few weeks. And then WV. And then IU. And then back to Missouri (or maybe DP and then Kville?). Whatever.

I've been a little frustrated with my writing as of late. I'm plotting and outlining like a motherfucker, but the words just won't come. Apparently I can't write in anything except the first person progressive anymore. That's a little distressing. On the other hand, I've made some progress with character motives in a certain story, so I guess that makes up for my writing issues.

I ran tonight... and my knee didn't hurt! I'm very happy about this. I'm really, incredibly uncomfortable running in my neighborhood here, and I don't know why. It's probably because it's so populated. I wish I lived closer to a track.

New goal in life: hike the Appalachian trail. My Aunt has already biked across America, so that's out, and the backpacking across Europe thing is totally passé (and I'll do it whenever I get to Europe). We'll see if I actually do it... next summer...

that Appalachian Trail idea is awesome. totally do it. if I had the money, I'd love to travel across America on sideroads only. like in that book Blue Highway? backpacking across Europe would still be cool, though. cliched but cool.

I know, right? I'd love to cross America in some way - it's been a dream for years - but at this rate, the only way I'll be doing it is by bike or foot. Probably the latter instead of the former.

Apparently hiking the Appalachian Trail is relatively cheap. No gas; just food and supplies. SPRING BREAK '09!!! (Or, uh, summer vacation '09, haha)
