my sister and i went to caribou coffee to read and drink coffee type beverages, but neither of us ended up reading any more than a page. we talked a lot about socialism/communism and a bunch of conversations that spawned off of those. it was really quite fantastic. weve had some educated discussions before, but none this enjoyable and enriching. we were more like friends than siblings. my sister used to be one of those do whatever anyone else did people and didnt care much about the world around her. but college really changed that. she has really become a lot more of and intelligent, world minded person. she actually has opinions on politics and stuff. but they are educated opinions that are the result of some effort. it was quite splendid.
i just watched a program on the first rv’s back in the 1910’s-50’s. id really like to get a pre-1940 car and a vintage trailer and travel with it when i get older. it would really be quite an enjoyable experience. its somewhat the essence of the simple life. but the trailers were quite innovative. not technological, but spacial. they fit so much and everything folded up so nicely. what a neat time to live in. back then innovations actually made life simpler instead of creating new ways to complicate it. kinda like how im living now. just enjoying what i have. and looking at my bank statement in front of me, i just realized its less than i thought. a lot less. like holy crap i dont know how i will survive less. but ive got fantatsic friends. ive got a mostly working car. ive got a good school to attend where i have more friends. i have a loving family. i have a brain i can think with. i have a place to sleep. i have good music to listen to. i have people to talk to. i know what makes me happy. i have a plan for the future. i have kinda cool clothes. i have good health. ive got knowledge. i have access to knowledge. i have abilities. ive got ‘law&order’ i have snow outside. ive got hersheys good night kisses hotchocolate. ive got a sofa to watch tv enriching tv on. ive got left over pizza. ive got the ‘simpsons’. ive got ‘seinfeld’. ive got plans to eat lunch with my aunt on wendesday. ive got breathe. ive got life. ive got you. ive got Jesus.
