shoulding myself in the face

i should be preparing for this trip. loans, phones, memberships, travel insurance, absentee ballots, appropriate head space, magnifying mirror for tweeezing. i should quit smoking and drink less coffee. i should be doing yoga and sit ups. i should be learning some kind of craft. i should play a musical instrument. i should tell people about this blog. i should be more introspective. i should be less self-involved. i should walk my dog more. i should read a spanish book. i should talk to my grandma. i should hear stories from my parents’ past. and then write them down. i should call my friends more. i should stop building walls. i should tear down my existing ones. i should start a correspondence with someone in a foreign country. i should stop eating la muchacha’s rice. i should eat more salad. i should swim more. i should stop being so nervous. at least i floss.
