Lord of the Spring Break - the final chapter

And thus ends my epic adventure called spring break. In all honesty, it was not unlike a blind date. Not really sure how it would turn out, was sorta boring at the beginning even though my mom said it would be good for me. Gave it a chance and turned out not half bad, just not sure if I would do it again. A little dancing, a little drinking, but nothing that blew my mind. Ah well. You win some and you lose some. Time to quit the bitchin'.

A tip: If you are sick and still insist on drinking heavily and dancing all night in a smoky club that plays off the hook '80s music sets, take a tbsp of Buckley's and drink some echinacea tea before passing out. It helps.

Another tip: If you are sick and still insist on drinking heavily and going out AGAIN the next night....I lied. There are no tips. You are just insane like me and willing to risk your own health for a good time. Ah, the naivete ofyouth. No, I lied again. It's not the naivete of youth, it's the denial of old age.

I don't know if it's because it's the end of spring break, or I just ran out of other things to think about, or maybe watching Grey's Anatomy fried my brains. In any case, this karma thing, it really buggers people up doesn't it? I mean, I've always believed in karma anyways but it's still an inexact science. This is to say I don't think it's mathematical or if something bad happens to you then you must have done something to deserve it. But in general, I believe that what comes around goes around. Or is it science? Is it like alchemy...the principle of equivalent trade. You must present something of equal value in order to gain something, nothing can be gained without sacrifice. Sounds crazy, but what if? Kinda like if you step on someone's toe and don't apologize and the next day, you jam a finger. Sounds about right. But I suppose it works the opposite way too. Maybe if you help someone up after they wiped on the ice, you might find a 10$ bill the next day on the floor next your cubicle in the library. Am I getting too Confucian on you? Nah, he didn't support the working female and I'm all about ladies in powersuits and boys in aprons. Hah!

All in all, this karma stuff is not to be sneered at. I've been victim to its bite and not eager to experience the statistical anomaly that can essentially mess you up for life. I'm not about to tempt the fates. I'm already trying hard enough to maintain balance in my life between my extracurricular activites, let alone mess with my cosmic balance that is already out of whack. Hmmm....come to think of it, maybe it wasn't so wise of me back in day being the school yard bully and all. THAT would answer a lot of questions...

Alright, so cosmic balance now states that for every hour of sleep that I lack, I will get to bitch out one rugby player at training. Hey, principle of equivalent trade - nothing can be gained without sacrifice! But I suppose there is a fine line between sleep and rugby players that I shouldn't cross. Hah! I'll let you clever ones decipher that double entendre!

Eat, drink and be merry... for many do not have that option. Peace out!
