Day 24: Regret
Sorry I've been away, dear Void. I needed a break from casting thoughts into you and waiting for the sound of hitting bottom that never comes. But I'm back.
In today's post: Just some awesome links.
Last night I dreamed that: I was back in high school performning in the show choir. But one of the other singers (I can remember her name, picture her face, but she was NEVER in choir and I don't think I ever talked to her) started talking smack about me. Long story short, she was angry that I had publicly embarrased a friend of hers (and a former friend of mine) by writing a nasty poem. What's weird about this is that I actually do regret something similar in high school, deeply regret it. (Weren't we all different people back then?) I don't know why this particular regret surfaced then and there, but I felt a wave of sadness during the dream that really reflected my waking self's present day regret. Terribly odd and unsettling. And out of nowhere.
