Took a walk this afternoon. Went by several old childhood haunts, including my elementary school and the houses a few friends lived in. And the old Silver Ball Arcade. But I didn't hop the gate and go in. The stairs and door haven't been there since they remodeled the place many years ago.

While I was out, a friend called. I called him back, and it turned out that it was his birthday and I'd forgotten. He was going to go to a Kool Keith concert. I told him that I couldn't hang out, though, because I was just in a weird mental space and wouldn't be much fun to be around. I feel like such a heel.

Broke down during dinner.

Dude. Nostalgia can be poisonous. Arrange to go do stuff with your friends or something tomorrow if you can.

Or, if that fails, I can list the many sucky things about the 80s until you're glad they're past.

Yeah, I'm going to hang out tomorrow. This also gives me time to buy presents, because I forgot another friend's birthday last week. The only birthday I can consistently remember is my own (and I can't always remember my age).

I think this whole mental mess has a lot of causes. Nostalgia was just the form it happened to take. Leftover stress from my last job, anxiety over my next assignment, and just general life-stagnation probably all played a part.
