The head of a company survived 9/11 because
His son started kindergarten.
Another fellow was alive because it was
His turn to bring donuts.
One woman was late because her
Alarm clock didn’t go off in time.
One was late because of being stuck on the NJ Turnpike
Because of an auto accident.
One of them
Missed his bus.
One spilled food on her clothes and had to take
Time to change.
Car wouldn’t start.
Get a taxi.
The one that struck me was the man
Who put on a new pair of shoes that morning,
Took the various means to get to work but before.
He got there, he developed a blister on his foot.
He stopped at a drugstore to buy a Band-Aid.
That is why he is alive today..
Now when I am
Stuck in traffic,
Miss an elevator,
Turn back to answer a ringing telephone…
All the little things that annoy me,
I think to myself,
This is exactly where
I’m meant to be
At this very moment
Class was cancelled… So of course we went out for dinner! Thanks Poornith!

Hearing my Nazarene roommates discuss sex and sexuality is actually really funny.
And one of them is going to be so traumatized when she gets married. She is terrified of sex.
Today we went to a gurudwara (Sikh place of worship) and had a meal with the congregation! It was interesting, but man those religious services in other languages kill me.
Now it’s raining and my clothes are getting an extra rinse. I just don’t even know what to do about it anymore.
My grandmother sent me a picture of the fall colors. With the monsoons pouring down daily, I miss fall even more.

I JUST THOUGHT ABOUT WHEN I GO HOME AND MY DAD MEETS ME AT THE AIRPORT. I KNOW HES GONNA HUG ME AND ITS GONNA BE A BIG BEAR HUG AND I MISS MY DAD OK
So I’m super insecure about school work and I hate when people ask about my work or how many pages my paper was and then they say oh mine was x pages is that too long? Like fuck you for trying to make yourself feel better when you know you went over the page limit while I am definitely in the page limit.
I only discuss grades and papers with people who don’t make it feel like a competition. I haven’t figured out yet if these people are competition people yet so I hate discussing homework with them.
The bad - getting really sick in the course of an afternoon (WebMD told me I had meningitis) (Doc said URI) (My mom thinks it was the flu) - massive bugs EVERYWHERE (the ants are humongous and the…
Somethings are awesome. Some things are shitty.
