If we command our wealth, we shall be rich and free; if our wealth commands us, we are poor indeed.
"Jesse, shut your mouth."
This made me cry, guys.
I’ve never been a fan of Obito. Even after his Start of Darkness flashback, I didn’t have much sympathy for him, but this chapter really did it for me. The combination of Flashback no Jutsu, What-Could-Have-Been no Jutsu, and Naruto’s-Tears no Jutsu finally breached my defenses.
Yesterday while I was surfing at Scripps Pier, a sea lion popped its head up right next to us. Amidst the delighted squeals of other beachgoers, all I could think was, “Don’t bite me! I’m not that flavorful!” which is a lie. I’m fucking delicious.
I took a shot at the swim test today - which I need to pass in order to take the surfing classes I enrolled in - but I failed. The test is 8 laps without stopping and 2 minutes of treading. At the end of lap 4, I wasn’t all that tired, but I started to panic. There was this voice in my head that said, "You’re gonna drown. You need air. You’re gonna drown if you keep going. You need to stop at the wall!" Even though I knew that I could turn over onto my back and do a backstroke if I needed to, I gave in to that fear and stopped. Now I’ll have to try again later this week. It was pretty disappointing.
