My eyes have been drooping all day today. I don’t know why this is as I slept fine and I am not actually tired. Maybe it’s from staring at the computer screen too much.
It must be that time again when I am trying to change my life. I’m spending too much manic time looking at university web sites. This is fine, as they are all well designed and informative, but I don’t really want to go anywhere or study anything. Except maybe to Vancouver to study art at Emily Carr University. Later. Later.
My mind feels blank but I want to write a story. One with a conflict. There has been a real lack of conflict in what I’ve been writing lately. Or issues or anything. Just mostly I write about people thinking and there’s a minor argument going on in their mind. I really need to find some tension, or controversy to explain.
I’ve found two things to look at when I go to Vancouver this weekend. Vancouver isn’t as fun to go to any more now that I live in a place that has all the various mall stores. Not like Duncan that didn’t. Anyway I’ve found some places to go. One is Dressew, which is the fabric/mega-wack crafty stuff store that Julie took me to last year and that I forgot about (but then, how often have I been in Van since then? Once? Twice!) and also Spartacus books, or the used book store I usually go to when I’m downtown. See how much time I have/how much I feel like walking around.
