It was eighty-six degrees today. EIGHTY-SIX. And humid as hell. This obviously required a light, comfortable outfit for work.

When I got home I took these photos and then threw on a tee and shorts (see below). I sat outside and watched the wrens bop and flit and hop around before going in to make myself a drink (Gin and tonic today. I'm not a huge fan of gin but it can be refreshing at times).
Tomorrow's weather looks like more of the same, and I have one question... Why am I not going to the beach?! Ugh. Responsibilities.

Yep, more birds!
The title of this post is from my favourite part of the movie Waking Life. I haven't seen this movie in a few years, and it's on the television right now (...with commercials. This is NOT a movie that should be cut up with commercials). The scene with this particular quote is pretty much how I feel about my life. I never want to be an ant. I don't want to look like every one else, act like every one else, have a mindless job, or have a life where my interaction with people is superficial at best. That scares the hell out of me. I think going back to school is going to help remedy the mindless job bit. Otherwise, I'd say I'm doing all right in my own way. There are things I would have done differently, would not have done at all, and should have done that I didn't but at least I can learn from those things. Anyway, I think I'm just happy to be reminded of my own ideals now and then. It's so incredibly easy to get bogged down by the rubbish that it's necessary to take a minute and remember who you are and what's important to you... I feel like I should thank Waking Life for being on at the precise moment I needed it. Good timing.
If you read all of that or even if you didn't, here, have a photo of me being a weirdo.
