Been just kind of zoning out, reading novels, watching Twin Peaks, sleeping (sometimes staying up all night), and occasionally doing something productive for the past few weeks. I guess I needed time to recharge before my big move after last semester. I won't have this luxury once school starts again, plus moving is kind of a big deal so.
I do need to get more and more prepared for my move though. Like I mentioned last time, I have my train ticket and room booked, and my dorm will be ready the following day. I doubt I'll have many vegan options on my long train ride, so I am going to bring toasted avacado sandwiches with nutritional yeast, fruit, and other items I need to get my hands on. I usually am not prepared for more than 10-12 hours and this train ride with quick transfers lasts more like 18! So I am going to bring at least two sandwiches, plenty of snacks (like babganoush and Luna bars) and I'm sure they'll have a salad or something small if I do get in a pinch.
Also, I love to read novels but I honestly don't know how nauseas it will make me over time, so I have also planned to cross-stitch a Twin Peaks themed pattern "The Owls Are Not What They Seem" - complete with little owls and trees - and picked up a cheap circle-the-word mag at a dollar store.
I am about halfway through with organizing my things. I have managed to sort and cull most of my papers and books since I last posted here, and my winter clothes are packed. I still need to ship two boxes up north full of my things and pack items I'm currently using (and will continue to use for three more weeks).
I feel almost like I've been avoiding all of it, but I really do think I just needed to rest and Be, for lack of a better term. I've done a few things I said I would do this summer, but not to the extent which I imagined. Of course there's still time over the next few weeks, plus an opportunity to go on an evening row boat trip once I get to my new school before the semester starts.
