Mistaken Journey

First whole day in the new place. Woke up, showered, and then went back to bed. Realized again that my room lacks any kind of external view at all, so night and day are arbitrary to me. Woke up again with a severe hunger headache, went to Bob Evans, came back, and talked about setting up the home network w/ James. It didn't end up happening, the Micro Center he went to didn't have the needed cables. At the same time, I went to a more distant Micro Center to replace my laptop's power cord, and it turned out the salesperson was mistaken in thinking they had the right cord (called over the phone first). Drove back, again feeling that my life is off track. It may be just the after effects of the moving, or perhaps it's really a good appraisal -- I just don't feel like I'm making progress towards my life goals. I suppose partially in response, although I didn't know it at the time, I decided to clean up the front yard of the house. There was a lot of junk scattered throughout the yard, from cigarettes to beer cans. Somehow, the mere act of sweeping and picking up the stuff made me feel a little bit better. I am suffering from internet withdrawl, I know, as well as the aftereffects of Insomnia closing and the ever-present spectre of Martha and lost love. It might be the (not-internet) talking, but I might ask if I can start a garden here. I don't know if it's a good environment for it, but I think it would really make me happy. I'm pleased to find that the combined power of four fullspectrum lights is able to keep my room warm enough for the Iggies to be happy. Today was another day in pain, but a more balanced one, and with any luck I'll be able to recapture my normal numbness/firey devotion that are the staples of my life.
