I’m being escorted through a jungle, which is understood to be located somewhere near the outer banks of North Carolina even though that doesn’t make any sense. We stop to examine a thorn bush and notice two watchers across a field. They intend on shooting us with bow and arrows. My guide seems confident that we can avoid danger. We continue moving but at a swift pace. Everything around us is so vibrant and lush – admiring the whole scenery...tranquil...the calm shore break – dipping my feet in – the idea of being on the edge of the country is frightening.

Waking up at 11:08 a.m.

Strawberry Toaster Pastries. Orange Juice.

All day shift at China Wok.

It’s a beautiful sunny day out, beautiful enough for the kids to be playing on the streets.

Lentil Spread Sandwich with Tomato. Salt n Vinegar Chips. Honey Green Tea.

The deliveries pick up around 4 p.m. and it’s pretty much non-stop from there. I attempt to learn Russian while driving. No pressing thoughts except for the usual stress on the road.

The cold night invades the senses.

Tofu with Broccoli, Onions, Carrots, and Rice in Garlic Sauce.

Off work and back home. Jonathon’s funeral was today. Unfortunately I had to miss it because of work. But all the kids who attended are here bumbling drunkenly about the house. I’m not enthused. This place will become a zoo. I lock myself in my room and all I can hear is the constant thumping from the staircase and the banging on doors, mostly on Kevin’s door as most everyone gets a kick out of picking on him. 

Chilling out in my room – playing poker. I’ve got absolutely no energy left.

I’m off to bed early at 2:30 a.m.
