thats cool I realized in high school that if I don’t get alone time, which according some people is wrong. I go absolutely nuts. an anecdote from today. I went to lunch a bit late because of my last class of the day (English 101) and after getting my lunch, which was some delicious stir-fry thanks to Kese. Some random guy came up and sat next to me and said “I saw you sitting here all alone and I felt bad so I decided to come and hang out with you.” Which at first I thought was pretty cool even though he had already finished eating. Then I realized, wait a sec. He felt bad for me? because I was eating alone? Did he not realize I could have sat with any number of the random scattered groups around the cafeteria? I sat alone on purpose, and at breakfast and lunch I often do. Mainly because I don’t mind being alone. It lets me collect my thoughts and it releases me from the stresses of talking to strangers or people that really bother me, both of which I have met here at college. Anyways, I dont understand why eating alone or being alone is wrong. I don’t know I guess I just don’t need to constantly be around people to validate my existence. oh well.
I just spent 11 days on Isle Royale national park with some amazing friends. I’m pretty sure everyday was the best and I hiked around 100miles with a 54lb pack and it was fucking magical. maybe ill post some of the views I saw. either way even if you only go out for a day trip which isn’t even scratching the tip off of the beauty that lies there. It is a shame that it is the least visited national park. I want to do solo hikes now I think that would be the fucking coolest.
