Day One: Farewell to the Normandy-SR1

re-sibi:

Ah yes, an excellent start to my journey up to Cornell. On I88 Westbound, my car, which I have dubbed the Normandy SR1, essentially imploded. According to the mechanic, the timing belt disintegrated as I was driving along, causing the pistons to jam upwards unhindered and warp the exhaust valves…

Announcement

Hey everyone! So I’ve decided that I haven’t done enough writing lately. I’ve also decided that the only way I’m going to get better at writing and discover my real writing style is to write something every day.

Some of you may know that I will be transferring to Cornell University starting in….shit, three days from now. I’ve decided a good way to get into the groove of writing every day is to essentially write a recap of the day’s events. I should think that the first few weeks should be interesting, ‘cause it’ll be all new and whatnot, and then afterwards, because it may get monotonous, I’m gonna start writing little skits around phrases I hear that day. Should be a party.

But since I can’t imagine all of you would want this cluttering your dash, I’ve created a new tumblr meant specifically for this project. I’ll still be using Sturm and Snark, but not for this new project. If you’d like to follow me over there, I assure you I’ll be writing every day, starting tomorrow. So yeah, I’ll see you over there at http://re-sibi.tumblr.com/

Thanks, folks.

“Hey man, take my picture!”
“I can’t do it. It’s too dark.”
“Yeah, we need some light. Let’s go over there.”
“Are you homeless?”
“Yes, I am.”
“How long have you been homeless?”
“15 years. I’ve been in Boston 8 months. Before that I was in Washington, Virginia, New York, Philadelphia, Louisiana, Florida…”
“Why didn’t you stay in Florida? It’s so much warmer.”
“I wanted to see my family. But they don’t want to see me. They don’t understand depression. They treat me like dirt. Homeless people treat me better than my family.”
“And what happened 15 years ago? How did you end up on the streets?”
“I tried to burn myself twice. I had 30 surgeries. I was dead two times, but God brought me back. I don’t know why.”
“And why did you do it?”
“I was depressed. Why you crying?”
“Because you are a beautiful person, and my family is really messed up, and I’ve been very depressed. I think I can understand you.”
“Yes, I am a good person. And when you take people’s pictures, don’t disrespect them.”
“No, man, I won’t. I like people. That’s why I take their pictures.”
“And when you make your portfolio, don’t denigrate people. Let the pictures speak for themselves.”
“I will. Are you safe on the streets?”
“Yes, I am…And now I have $8 to buy me some food.”
“That’s all I have. Next time I see you, I will give you more.”
“No, man. It ain’t all about money. Give me a hug. And next time you see me, give me a hug again. And thanks for taking my picture.”
