now it's hot again

For the last three days I have woken up at 5:30, and it is actually cold, but today I had to accept what my mind knew but my senses railed against, that later on it would be hot. And now it is, as only a few minutes on campus has shown me. Nevertheless this is my favourite time of the year, because I have all glorious Autumn winter ahead of me. Very much looking forward to it. What an odd character I must be to not enjoy experiencing something as much as enjoying looking forward to experiencing it, but someone will tell me that's typical Aries-Taurus cusp, or typical Gen X, or typical dickhead.

How does reminiscing about things compare to anticipating them or experiencing them in your opinion? I'm sure Alain de Boton has written a book on this subject

I had a nice reminisce this morning at Jordanville Station where I (a) spent a lot of time in my youth (b) was pleased to see the Oakleigh Homing Pigeon club SIGN was still in evidence, although the building itself has become something else. This turned to anticipating being late for my first class this morning because the friggin' bus was friggin' late. So I would say at least in reminiscing you don't have that dread feeling that something is going to go horribly wrong, though of course it often did.
