A Soul From The Future

Do you feel like you belong in your generation, or do you have an old soul?

I don’t think I have an “old soul” for the most part – maybe a few things, I guess harkens back to a much simpler time. But more than being someone from the old days or the current generation, I always feel like I am from a generation or time far away in the future.

Those of you who have read about it or know me well enough, I have always wanted to travel in space and see the universe and want to visit various alien planets and see if there is intelligent life out there. See what the alien cultures are like, share our food and drink with them and taste some of their food. I wanna see alien planet landscapes and chase a shooting star. I wanna see the stars and sleep among them.

I want to be party of landing parties and away missions. I want to beam onto places and beam back out. I want to pilot a starship or a shuttle and fight the bad guys. I wanna romance the alien girls and be amazed at the beauty of the universe. I wanna do that and I belong out there. I want to be in space.

Home In A Jiffy

I am beside myself with glee. Well not glee exactly. It is a sadden sort of happiness, if I can put it that way. Today, after a morning shift, I am at home in the evening at 6:17 pm and sitting in my room a few minutes later. This never happens to me for the past several months. Usually I hate working day shifts – meaning 8:30 am to 5:30 pm or 9:30 am to 6:30 pm – because I never get to leave the office on time.

There is always something or the other, some work or the other than comes up and I stay back for 2, 3 or 4 hours. And I come home late and go straight to bed, watch a little tv and fall asleep with the lights still on. I also end up waking up in the middle of the night, like around 2 or 3 and realize that the lights are still on and my laptop is still on and I switch everything off and get back to sleep because I need to be up by 6:00 am.

But yesterday I left by 6:15 am because a college was on his last working day there and I wanted to speak to him for a while. With the rains and it being rush hour at 6:30 pm, I took almost 90 minutes to get home. Today I took less than 30 minutes to get home and made a large coffee and some Oreo type cookies and enjoying being online. This is new. This is sweet. Simple yet so enjoyable.
