I turned 23 on Friday…yay. The event was celebrated by dinner, a night at a bar, and a short after-hours party. All in all, a relatively tame affair…much tamer than the one had by some of my friends (and you know who you are). Just another in a string of meaningless birthdays until I turn 40.
I’ve spent a good deal of the past two weeks enjoying the company of my friends, some of whom I hadn’t seen much this summer. While it is good for me to be active and sociable, I keep thinking about all the friends of mine I’ve known in the past few years that I’ve lost touch with. Even though much of this is due to the major life changes we face in our late teens and early twenties, I still feel that I’ve done far too little to maintain the bonds I’ve been fortunate to have. That, my friends, is a confession of a lazy mind.
Class/other time constraints aside, I will attempt to post my impressions of the Republican National Convention once or twice this week. I’m planning on watching as much of it as possible on C-SPAN, since they air most everything without the commentary and analysis that tends to clutter my own perceptions. Like everything else on here, check back for updates.
