Wednesday (4/1/09) 9:41am - ... wherein Peter recaps March '09.

I kind of botched this month.

I could have spent a lot of money and attended Lindyfest.  I could have braved the scenester crowds of SXSW.  I wound up doing neither, and that made for a week or two that felt like staying on campus while all your friends go on spring break.[1]

Other things have gone poorly.  This has been an incredibly frustrating and ineffectual month at work.  I've been writing a very difficult spec script for TV class, and that's led to a lot of time staring at blank pages and feeling uncreative.

So I suppose March wasn't the happiest month.  April should be better.  I'll finish the spec script (yes by god I will), I'll get out of the house for improv and dancing, and I'll traipse off to Chicago at the end of the month for a long weekend of both.

[1] Hmm.  I suspect I've picked a simile related to my own personal experience that won't be familiar to anybody else.

So what if you put the 'i' in 'simile'? :-)

Though I haven't heard that before, it made perfect sense to me immediately. I was never one to go on an extravagant trip during spring breaks, though I usually did leave campus to go 'home' i.e. to my parents'.

Yeah, I figured people would sort out what I meant -- I mostly found it amusing that that was the first simile I reached for. :)

That spring-break simile

It's not a stretch at all; I 'grokked' it on the first read. It actually felt so natural that, had you not mentioned it, I wouldn't have realized that it wasn't in wider use.

I totally know the spring break feeling. I did that one year. Very boring.
