Thursday, April 10th, 2008 • No Comments on I Would Rather Be There
I’m seeing the sun for the first time in… six days? It’s lovely, but I’m seeing it through the window at Starbucks. Sigh…
I wish I could be at the Dirty Girls party tonight. That’s the problem with living in Virginia. Too far from the cool places.
I could be hanging out with Sheri in Paris by this time next week. I priced airline tickets yesterday and, if I don’t mind sitting in the middle seat for most of my flights, I could fly for under $800. That’s not too bad for spring in Paris with one week’s notice.
Unfortunately, I won’t be going to book parties or on a Paris vacation any time soon. I will be writing my screenplay and grading English essays and working on assignments and the final exam for Mythology. Just a few more weeks and the semester will be over and I can live and breathe fiction writing for three months. And maybe, just maybe, I’ll get on a plane for… somewhere.
