Josh Lyman - He's My Hero
In 50 minutes, I will have spent my entire weekend (aside from two meal get-togethers, a gig of my brother's and church) watching 5 of the six discs of the 6th season of the West Wing that just came out on DVD. I think it is an undersatement to say that I am creating a little protected zone around myself. However, I still can't quite put my finger on why, despite my last post. I've spent so much of my recent life reacting to actual events that logically cause emotional states that a general malaise is foreign to me. I've been doing creating a protected zone since I moved out here and for a little while it was the stress of moving, but that has since worn off and I'm just not engaging or taking advantage of the opportunities that I have to actually experience life outside my apartment. At least, not to its full potential. I have joined the church, made a new friend, started rehearsing and singing on Sundays with the music team. But, most of the time that I don't have something scheduled, I want to hole up with a book or a DVD. Since I can't figure out what is causing it, I can't figure out how long is too long before it becomes lifestyle habit without a cause. That concerns me a little but I'm hoping my support network will tell me when I've gone too far. Will you?
