...move along

I had my first 'death' experience today..don't worry, you probably won't think its that serious by the end of this. But it was a pretty big deal for me. I was going to the lab to get something I had forgotten, and forgot to take my usual Rambling to Stadium to Howard route, so I travelled down Wincell to Oakland and Howard instead. Well, right about where I turn INTO my neighborhood, by Waite, I see like four cop cars, flashing lights and all *bling bling.* And I slow down, turn the music off, and see a cop flashing his torch for me to stop, and I do. But I found my mouth gaping wide...cause I saw a deer flailing around on the road ahead of me, and then I heard a *bang* The deer was out for 10 seconds, then flailed some more, after which it stopped. It died. My mouth was still open.

I have never in my life, EVER been to any funeral. Nor have I watched a living creature actually die. That may be a lie because I'm sure sometime I actually have seen an earthworm squirm to death or something, but I don't think my memory at this time permits me access to any form of death I've actually observed....o wait, there WAS this tiny bird that fell out of its nest when I was in second grade. I buried it. But that was a long time ago...and since I'm about to turn 21 in less than a month, I view this second experience of 'death' as an awakening. It was so strange. So many people have probably experienced something a lot worse, but I am truly affected by something this 'small,' this 'simple,' this 'unimportant incident' in the context of our entire lives. I also heard, for the first time in my life, a gunshot. An actual gunshot, and it wasn't at all the BIG bang I expected..just a small bang. To think it inflicts such damage, to think it inflicts death. I am glad I experienced this tonight.

This has been a really really tough semester for me. I have 20 credit hours, which for a lot of college students is worth fainting over. Plus, I'm teaching a lab/lecture biology course, and even though its tough, my students have most definitely made it worth while. I squeeze research in here and there, and then there's the biggest doozie of them med school applications. *uf* So much stuff to do..constantly. On top of that, I feel bad, but kind of enlightened, that I'm distanced from a lot of my friends right now. Amanda is far away, so its just a distance barrier. But I fought with my friend Steve, and am currently in the process of doing the same with Sandhya. Its true, sometimes I hate life. And life encompasses such conflicts. But I need to grow up. I need to realize that friends are friends, and the truth of the matter is, someday we will all move along. It is simply a truth I have to face. If I don't, I will perish in foolishness of not recognizing reality.

On my way back home, I took Howard, and the deer was gone. I think there was some blood on the road. But the greatest lesson I've learned is that of moving on. That's all you've got to do...move along. But it still saddens me.

Tis natural. :)

We had a pretty intense discussion about advertisements in my political science class. It went something like this...

Some dudette: "Well, just like Phillip Morris tricked people into thinking that light cigarette's are bad for people, I think Mc Donalds and Burger King do the same with burgers."
Class: "WTF?!!"
Counterdude: (He probably thought: YOU IDIOT!, first) then went: "Think about how someone can die from second hand smoke. I don't think one can die from sitting next to someone eating a bigmac."

Walking out of class:

Karen: "I think I'm wearing too much clothes."
Me: "Yea, you should take them off. But then you'd be naked."
Karen: "Yea, and by the 'slippery slope' you're next to me so your clothes would automatically fall off of you too!"


Just a sidenote: This is a translation of a mantra in sanskrit called the Gayatri Mantra:
"If the Sun is the source of Light to the Earth,
What is the source of power to the Sun?
Verily, a Flame, and the Flame that is greater than the Universe.
Can that Flame illumine my mind?
Why not, let me try and find!"

o my dear rules!

Essani: "We (Eversole and himself) are God. And God is never wrong."

"I will tell you this joke. There was a woman who suffered a terrible accident and had a near death experience. She saw God and asked him 'Am I going to die?' God: 'No, you still have 40 years, 8 months and 13 days to live.' The woman recovers, and thinks 'Wow, I have SO long to live!' So she gets her nose did, and boobs implanted, and after tons of surgeries she walks out of a final nose-job looking hot and sassy. She gets into another accident, and dies. When she encounters God she asks him 'You said I had so much time, so why am I dead?' God: 'O! I'm sorry...I didn't recognize you!'"

:) The dude cracks me up! *HAHA*

Other than all that bajagaloop...Swapna definitely FLOODED the entire one half of the fourth floor including her lab at Haenicke today!!!! Holy shit.

There was a leak in the tap and a slip of paper was blocking the drain, so the water poured out of the sink, all over their lab and out into the hallway. So me, being the greatest 'go to person' for such gorgeous emergencies scoured all the labs to find squeejy mops (reminds me of Rossbach's 'skveez') and we spent two entire hours mopping up the floor! It looked GORGEOUS after, and then we raced eachother all across the Haenicke hallway! SO MUCH FUN! I got a tear in my skirt. I know... *scandalous* AND the funniest of it all was watching Pramod catwalking, the Nerve Gas Bomb farting, and Sandhya wearing the most gorgeous perfume ever known to exist!

O man...tonight was truly glorious! I laughed until my stomach hurt, until my eyes watered, until my teeth were clenched in breathless happiness. It's been a really long time since that happened.

*skips away*

Our Father, who art in Calgary, Bobsled be thy name. Thy kingdom come, gold medals won, on Earth as it is in Turn Seven. With Liberty and Justice for Jamaica and Haile Selassie. Amen.
