He haunts my soul

Ignoring the date. Ignoring the time. Ignoring the fact I can barely hold my eyes open.  Trying to begin my historical narrative on Jack Kerouac.  I’m not used to writing non-fiction, so much meticulous detail to include.  I usually rely on my imagination when writing.  I am sick of going to class.  I didn’t go to class all week.  So here I am. It’s amazing how I perfect the skill of procrastination.  I perfected it so well that I am even making a blog entry.  Imagine that.  I just keep reading a couple pages from Jack’s “Some of the Dharma” over and over to myself.   My friend wants me to visit her in Costa Rica.  For some reason I have always thought about going there but it seems so crazy.  I don’t think my boyfriend wants to go.  But maybe he does, it’s hard to tell.  I think that he partially thinks I’m crazy, but in a good way.  I’m trying to get drunk enough so whatever crap I write will be tolerable, but I feel an obligation to Jack.  I want to say something about him, I’m just not sure what yet.
