Margot and I are staying in this strange warehouse sized boarding house. It’s our last day so we gather our things. For some reason she leaves before I do. I can’t carry all of my belongings in one trip and take what I can. I get lost in the corridors and can’t seem to find my way to the front lobby. There’s multiple floors and oddly designed elevators with moving platforms. Eventually I locate what I think is the main entrance. I head back to the original dorm room. I spot Margot outside the window holding her luggage. It’s raining and she’s upset because I didn’t follow her.

I wake up in a familiar bed that isn’t mine. Smells of a familiar room that isn’t mine. My neck hurts. What happened last night?Gathering my senses.

Strawberry Toaster Pastry. Orange Juice.

Do not try to be superior among the people around you. That intention leads to death.


Grilled Cheese with Tomato and Hummus. Salt n Vinegar Chips. Honey Green Tea.

Joining Anthony and his father downstairs while they watch Inception (2010).

Dark Chocolate Caramel Coconut Bar.

Learning Russian.

Trip to the store.

Spaghetti with Onions, Mushrooms, Tomato Sauce, and Bread.

Kevin and Richie have on A Night at the Roxbury (1998) in the living room. I sit at the dining room table and try out a new set of markers I just bought at Target to draw a picture called Duplicitous Temptress; it’s somewhat therapeutic.

Time for a night jog. It’s slightly chilly out so I suit up in a thin red and white hoodie. Playing atmospheric dance tunes and getting lost in the Linlier neighborhood. While cutting through the Hilltop shopping center I spot a full pack of Parliaments on the ground. I don’t smoke these things but I take them back with me to the house for Kevin and Darren.


Darren: “For me it’s not about attraction. It’s about exploration.”

Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

I’m seduced by sound – hypnotized by it.

Sleep 4 a.m.
