I'm hoping all of this bittersweetness goes away in the future, but until it does I wll report it to you.

After work I hustled home. I needed to eat and change before I headed over to BAM for Split Sides, a dance performance by the Merce Cunningham Dance Company. The piece was scored and accompanied live by Radiohead and Sigur Rós. I have to say, it was amazing. The piece by Sigur Rós was especially poignant. For the uninformed, the performance is called Split Sides because a roll of the die beforehand determines which band, backdrop, costume and lighting set goes first. Thanks so much to Jen for scoring the tickets. It helps to have friends on the inside. To top off the beautiful performance, I called my sister on the way out and found out the Cubs were leading 2-0 in the bottom of the 7th. Perfect.

Or not. As soon as I arrive home I watch the Cubs go from 3-0 to 3-8 in a matter of minutes. I was angry and violent (towards my walls and pillows). The rug had been pulled out from underneath me. My breath was gone and I just wanted to curl up in my bed.

As soon as the game was finished, my hamburger arrived and I turned on My Favorite Year. I only watched the first twenty minutes tonight but it was hilarious. I kept laughing out loud and it felt good. Then, I talked to Jori for over an hour and that was nice.

So, now I'm back to my normal state. I'm not overjoyed but I'm not at my lowest low either. Tomorrow is a new day and all that is wrong can be righted.

In other news, I apologize for the lack of content on the blog. I've been busy and my mind has been on other things lately. Regular posting my come back soon, or maybe not. You'll know when I do.
