Not-so-Instant Gratification

Sometimes I like having to wait for stuff. For instance, I’m currently downloading some torrent files. They’re downloading at a pretty slow rate, but it makes what I’m waiting for seem worth it. Maybe that’s a little backwards psychology going on, but waiting a while for the unknown is pretty exciting.  It also may relate to my being super-sentimental and waiting reminds me of days gone by when I had to wait until Christmas or my birthday for that number one gift from my infinite wishlist.

I think autumn makes me sentimental as well. There’s something about the way the sun shines on the trees and the smell of the world. Or some such poetic observation.
