He who makes a beast of himself gets rid of the pain of being a man.

New Orleans is quite a city. I went down there on the 27th for the Alpha Phi Omega national convention. I think I spent a sum total of two and a half hours doing actual APO business. The rest of the time I took in the city. Our hotel was on Canal Street--right on the edge of the French quarter. Deactur, Bourbon Street, and St Phillips were all a 5 minute walk away.

I sound like a brochure for Sheraton.

Anywho, fun was had. So were many drinks. I get my pictures back tomorrow, so hopefully the memories that are still a bit blurry will be brought into sharper focus in my mind. New Years Eve was a crazy time--I'd nearly run out of money by that point, but I found enough loose bills to buy a pint of rum. The Captain kept me warm on the chilly streets. Chilly, I suppose, is relative. Walking around in the tee shirt and jeans I was wearing was a little nipply--the temperature was 40-50 degrees warmer down there than up in Michigan. Nice.

Ya know, I could write a few pages about everything that I saw and did, but I don't really feel like it. I've got some other things on my mind, really...

Like, confidence. I don't think I have any. I wonder how one can go about getting some. I'd be willing to work out some sort of payment plan.

I only have a few days left before heading back up to Mt Pleasant. I can't wait to get back up there, but at the same time, it seems like I'm not done down here. I don't feel like I've spent nearly any time hanging out with my friends down here...The 15th of February is looming ahead...sitting on the horizon and getting bigger every day. I have all these things that I want to do before I leave, and sometimes it feels like there isn't enough time.

Most of all, I want to make sure that I feel comfortable with all of my friendships before I leave. I don't want to wish that I would have spent more time somewhere...especially with the knowledge that when I come home, a lot of my friends won't be in Mt Pleasant anymore. Most of them don't even know where they'll be, yet. I know how easy it is for people to lose touch, and my friends are too important for me to let that happen.
