P.S. What am I going to do with myself?

Jenn found this crumpled up love note/cry for help on Valentines Day at the Earth Sciences building at UC Berkeley. (She has generously allowed me to curate the item in exchange for a beverage - thanks Jenn!)

It is written rather sloppily (drunkenly?) on four white post-it style squares of stationary: printed at the top of each page is the legend "IDIOCY"; and at the bottom of each sheet it says "never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups."


I was bewildered when I came home and found you missing/asleep.

I am disaapointed. We should have been enjoying a gay and fantastic time at the bars. In punishment you are entirely obligated to partake in all social activities I choose to partake in. That includes partaking in cooking Ramen


LUAN [? - that's the signature, but it's sloppy and nearly illegible.]

P.S. WHAT AM I GOING TO DO WITH MYSELF? [underlined twice]

You're welcome! Take good care of it.

Maybe you can try calling the number on the back to find out what happened.

since when has cooking ramen been considered a social activity?

You've got some weird folk out there by the bay.

"What am I going to do with myself?" feels good to say sometimes. Maybe not outloud or specifically to others, in that it gives your power away but to thyself, good for shifting gears and refocusing, I think. But to your boyfriend? She must be young...

Any letter that uses the word "partake" three times cannot be taken seriously.
