I am not going to think about this
story that I’m writing for class. I have worked on it unsuccessfully for two days. Two pages in two days will not get a 10 page story written by Sunday. I am not going to think about it. I will clear my mind. I will breathe deeply and think of my other interests. I will do other work after relaxing. Then I will return to it. Things will come naturally because my brain will be refreshed. ...
The Typewriter Dilemma
I think I want to buy a typewriter. I don’t have a lot of money right now and I want to spend it on dresses and food and stamps, but now I also want a typewriter and my friend is selling a beautiful bike that I also want. So let’s analyze this: Why do you want the typewriter? I want to write pretty letters to my friends. Typewrite them, that is. Could you do this without the...
Ugh waking up early for class registration. Biggest dilemma: make coffee (and ensure my alertness for typing in codes into the registration website) or stay in bed, wrapped partially by duvet cover (to ensure warmth and ability to return to sleep for extra 1.5 hours). sleepy sleepy sleepy Also just found out (?!) that I don’t make $10/hr at my job. Should have figured it’s $7.25. ...
conversations that put color in my cheeks.
eli: I've been waiting for someone to ask me how I am so I can say "got money to burn, time to kill" and they'll say "well you were broken pretty bad so we gave you what we had and cleared a space, etc."

Reporter: So, why do you write these strong female characters?
Joss Whedon: Because you're still asking me that question.
the only reason i opened my eyes this morning is because the narrator from arrested development told me that the books I was showing my friends weren’t the noddy books of my childhood. They were just by the same author.
is a really interesting emotion. even when you wake up in the middle of the night and you know for sure that it’s not real, that gravity hasn’t become 5x stronger or that the world hasn’t started expecting you to speak french at all times, it’s strikingly difficult to get rid of fear. i just woke up thinking that the natural laws of science—gravity,...
i won’t lie i feel bad bad bad bad bad in the icky creeping way in the back of my head—in the panicking scared way that makes you tense up in all of your muscles, and just want to scream, run, and hide. which would really all be fine if i had some valid reason to explain it. if i had something that was stressing me out specifically, if there was more work for me to do than normal....
I lost my class ring (silver, light blue stone) I am pretty sure it’s in the campus center, under the table in upstairs the main area, at the head of the table. I think so, very much. But the campus center is now locked. ARHHHHG.

MY LEVEL OF EXCITEMENT IS VERY HIGH also, Andy Hull proves he’s a good lyricist, and not just a raw emotional heap of beautifully bearded, slightly off putting humanity. (The true reason that I love him.) mikesmuzac: FINALLY some new Manchester Orchestra up in this joint! New song “Simple Math” out today for a free download from their website. I like it, starts off slow but builds to a...
