(Analog) Monday: Romeo + Juliet.
So, I can't stop watching My So-Called Life. My life for the past three days has consisted solely of knitting on the couch sharing the company of Angela Chase and Jordan Catalano while trying to eat my body weight in parsley.
Since all that I can think about is Claire Danes, I found the Baz Luhrman's Romeo + Juliet Soundtrack most apropos for today's (analog) Monday. This cassette appears courtesy of the always supportive Rich Russell, who feeds the angsty teenager that still lives inside me every chance he gets. Well, that sounded weird. Whatever. It's late and I'm hungry. I really can't think of anything except the moment when Dave is going to get home with a 7-layer burrito and a root beer for me.
I've been feeling really anxious lately because I start classes at a new school on Wednesday. I keep having dreams about high school, or dreams where people from high school show up. Not bad ones or anything. High school was actually a pretty good experience for me. I guess this Analog Monday has a two-fold purpose for me, actually. The summer before I started high school, two friends and I watched Romeo and Juliet religiously. We must have seen it in the theatres at least ten times. As soon as it came out on VHS, we watched it every single day and so the soundtrack has become super nostalgic to me.
As I embark on yet another educational facet of my life, I'm looking back to what made the others so special and hoping for the same.
This post is definitely dedicated to my high school BFFL's Heather and Sheena, whom I haven't seen in quite awhile but still think about always. I miss you girls!!!!
And with that being said, Wish me LUCK!!!! I'm gonna need it :-)
