i almost broke down today while i was running errands. I kept on seeing things that would somehow remind me of kim, and it took all of my effort to not have an emotional breakdown in Fred Meyer.

It would have been interesting if i had done it. I have this picture of a music video where someone is doing something like that - shopping in some mall or supermarket, and then out of nowhere has some sort of emotional breakdown and starts screaming and crying and screaming and crying, and the camera pans up to a somewhat far away skyview to show that everyone else in the shopping center has no idea that this person is having an emotional breakdown - they're just going about their business.

sometimes that's how it feels to be in a crowd of people. inside i'm screaming and kicking and falling apart, but no one else around me can see it - they have a filter that allows them to be blind to that sort of thing, or else i have a filter that doesn't allow people to see it.

it reminds me of the time i almost had an emotional breakdown in the kammerer lab on Oct 14, 2002.

anyway. tonight might be a putters day. maybe around 20:00. i need to play some DDR.

I read that old entry and I completely relate to that feeling. I've had a number of experiences with death, the most prominent being when my childhood best friend died of cancer when we were 14, and more than anything i've found that it just puts a perspective on life. extreme grief pushes you to the outside of society, an observer, and you discover how give-and-take everything is that people do. of course they're going on with their lives - why should your grief stop them? and so, eventually, your grief becomes a part of the normal for you so you can slowly return from the edges. i don't know where i was going with that... somehow related, too, to the fact that life is not easy as it is, that being in high school is not easy, etc, and things like that just throw a person for a loop.
