I like hypercubes a lot.
I linked to the wikipedia page on them in my other post today.
But I love how they supersede the common understanding of physical dimensions. I understand that they are way over my head. I also love them because they are one of the concepts in the book “A Wrinkle in Time”.
That book is one of my long standing favourites. It’s got more or less everything that a good book can be asked to give: adventure, romance, depth, humour, string theory, and much more
It’s always been one of the books that takes me away from places I don’t like to be (like when I was living with my parents) and let me be in an entirely different universe. And I love it for that too.
I’m still unable to adjust to this residence life thing. Most of the time I just want people to GO AWAY.
I may get used to it. I may not. I doubt I’ll live in res next year, all the same.
Remember like 2 days ago I had that weird post about a crazy idea?
So here’s the plan. Do not try to talk me out of it.

I want to take next year off school and do crazy stuff.Take the midnight train going anywhere. Work, of course, for money, but then go see the world.
The weirdest thing has brought me to this. I’ve been thinking about taking next year off for a while, and I’ve been feeling intense cabin fever, and questioning the 9-5 lifestyle. I can’t do that. I’m seriously freaking out because I don’t want my life to be a job or a career. I want to be a person, not an employee. I don’t want to wake up every morning, shower, go to work, come home, watch a movie, and go to bed. I WILL SNAP if I don’t get what ever is poking at me out.
So I was talking to Amalie, who is far away in Waterloo, and she’s hating university, so I was like “I have a crazy plan” and she said “So do I”. So I told her what I was thinking, and it turned out she had the exact same idea. Angsty minds think alike!
So that is the plan if I can make it work. And I hope more than anything that I can.
Anyone else want to come along?

In other news, I'm going sailing, and I'm getting a cell phone, and there's a very VERY drunk guy stumbling around my living quarters. Aaaaand I skipped Latin today. Again. To go downtown with the roomie. Again. And I aced a physics quiz which is worth like 5% of my mark. Huzzah!

  1. i may come along on a couple crazy adventures but as for uni as a whole... i think that thunder bay is slightly different than in the south and as a result... i'm absolutely loving life as much as i can be.
    i hope that something falls into place where you feel that as well :)
