You know that feeling where you know something bad is about to happen (at least, you're pretty sure it's going to happen) and you have an idea of when it's going to happen (but no specifics), so all you can do is wait nervously until it does happen?

Yeah, that's exactly how I feel right now.

It's the little things I remember.

The cloudless, bright blue sky; the sun brightly shining, making that September morning feel like it was still summer; the phone suddenly ringing in Mrs. Abraham's classroom, her only telling us that all the airports had been shut down. Getting into Mom's van at the end of the school day, wondering what was going on; Dad being home from work before I was home from school - an odd occurance for a Tuesday;  Watching footage replay multiple times over, at different angles and different speeds on the big-screen television in our family room; Being unable to sleep that night, staying up with my parents and watching news of the aftermath.

And the feelings of numbness, fear and confusion that lasted for weeks.

I can't believe it's been ten whole years since that Tuesday in September.

Real life sucks at the moment (long story short, I'm not confident in my abilities to be a functioning adult, so I'm taking a year off school to get things in order), so I have been throwing myself wholeheartedly into the fictional world of various television shows. For a while it was The Good Wife and Friends (SHUT UP, I was only a baby when the show premiered; it is also the reason I now have a massive crush on Paul Rudd); now it's The Hour and of course, Eureka.

Which brings me to this: some not-quite-meta.Collapse )
