The eye of the storm

Routine. I’m beginning to hate it. I just finished The Perks of Being a Wallflower. at the end it was kind of weird, I just closed the book and sat for a minute, thumbing the pages. There was a quiet, a good quiet. Peace, that’s the only word I can think of right now. Sure there are people walking around me, there are machines making noise, but right now it’s quiet for me. I really like that.
I’m kind of hiding out today trying to study a bit. I bombed my test, bad. I’ve got another one on Thursday and I must do well or I’m totally screwed. This is the one class that I can’t afford to do poorly in, I need it as a prereq for everything else I have left to take before graduation.
I need more peace. I need more quiet times. So much of my days are spent in “noisy” environments, everyone fighting to get a word in. Everyone fighting. I’m tired of it. I miss the old days.
