Seeing Yaysayer @ Virgin festival with caleb. Then work - hope i don’t smell too much like the weed cloud above the concert.
So my options for tonight were: stay up indefinitely to work on a project due tomorrow morning, then go to work immediately after class to get “certified” (i.e. get tested on job procedures by my boss) and then stay until close (so 3 PM to 11 PM). For the record I had both class and work today as well. Not go to class, turn in project late for sake of job performance/sanity. Be...
And then that got me thinking, when I'm still...
So by birth I’m midwestern (my parents brought me home to a duplex in northern Ohio, close to Lake Erie) but spent maybe my most vital formative years on the West coast. Northern California, close to Lake Tahoe, lots of pine trees and opportunities to get lost in them. We lived on six acres out in the forest, and the closest town was an old Gold Rush hub where most of the buildings were...
Can the next few months go by as fast as the past...
I’m sitting here daydreaming (nightdreaming? I guess?) about the as-of-now-possible spring semester in California. I applied to CCA in San Francisco/Oakland, among other places, and it’s luring me in: warm weather in winter, Chinatown, trolley cars, the Monterey Bay aquarium, In-n-Out, UC Berkley boys, close proximity to Pixar, legendary farmer’s markets, sourdough bread, taco...
NPR has a Tumblr.
I’m following it. This is like the Inception of a very specific breed of white person.
I made pea curry soup tonight.
Unfortunately some asshole thought it was a good idea to design a blender with holes in the lid. As a note to everyone, check on things like that before you go to puree a boiling pan of peas. I have a nice big red splotch on my hand and neon yellow curry stains all over the walls and shelves of my kitchen. Hey. At least it was good.
Dan Savage is giving a talk at MICA today, and I...
Me, Frank and Gabo are sitting around talking about our experiences with braces. Happy Friday.
Getting drunk and watching Rocky Horror for the...
This movie is fucking weird as shit, but kind of fun anyway. I hope something actually happens tonight but if I’m just in my house getting trashed with friends that’s ok too.
Going to DC solo to see the Norman Rockwell exhibit. Wish I had a buddy but hey. It’s my one day off and I’m using it.
I need a backrub like you don't even know.
So I had four shifts at work this week, plus work study, plus two almost all nighters (probably going to be three) because my homework schedule was totally and completely thrown off. In short, not feeling so hot right now. I’m accepting that this first round of assignments is going to be nothing but shitty work, because I have no idea how to budget my time or lack thereof. So that sucks....
Just throwing it out there.
Seeing just how many words I remember from ‘God Must Have Spent A Little More Time on You’ by N’sync. It’s a lot. Kill me.
BLOW UP: Hanuka, Shimizu, Weber →
I want to go to there. But totally forgot to RSVP. :<
I don’t know what’s worse: me waking up at 11, or the fact that my breakfast was ice cream.
So everyone really likes it when they find a song...
I am not ok with it getting dark at 8 PM.
It only means that it’s going to be pitch black at 5 within a few weeks. Great. Wonderful. Fall is only going to last for 2 seconds and then it’s going to be winter.
So Tori and I are currently sitting at her house, waiting for the cheesecake Oreo bites we made to finish cooking. We just turned on Titanic. How’s your Friday?
So I haven’t been around much because I only get the internet for like an hour a day and school started and I just got hired at a job and I already have a work study. But it’s not like anything else happened so whatever.

psychotherapy: Sloshed, trollied, hammered, plastered. We’ve done a sterling job of inventing words for the inebriated state, but when it comes to judging from their behaviour how much a person has drunk, we could do (a lot) better. That’s according to a review of the literature by US psychologist Steve Rubenzer. We all have our trusted indices for judging other people’s drunkenness. Perhaps...
