Blasted from the past...

Ok, this one comes to you from over a decade ago. I picked this up today while rummaging through some old stuff. I don't even really remember writing it, but it is unmistakeably my handwriting. It's interesting to look at it now and try and figure out what was going through my head at the time. Well, that's not totally accurate. I believe it will be quite obvious what was going through my head at the time. That's all I'll say for now. Meet me after early 20's Jon's notebook scribblings:

Person 1: Where is everyone?

Person 2: Gone. Spring Break.

Person 1: So there's no one on campus?

Person 2: I wouldn't call the people that work here nobodies.

Person 1: That's not what I meant. I mean there aren't any students on campus.

Person 2: I'm a student and I'm on campus.

Person 1: Besides you.

Person 2: No. It's pretty much just me.

Person 1: So let me get this straight, there are no other students on campus, but you're here working the desk at the student center?

Person 2: That's correct.

Person 1: Why?

Person 2: That's a good question. One I'm not willing to ask myself because they might realize that I don't need to be here. And if I don't need to be here, they don't need to pay me. And I need to get paid, so I remain quiet about the whole thing and I'd appreciate it if you'd do the same.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand SCENE!!!

OK, mid 30's Jon here again. So, what was that all about? I know some people have conversations with themselves, but how many people write them down? Thank god I did though, because otherwise I wouldn't have a post today. See you tomorrow!
