things that happened today

i turned 24

i ate sausage gravy and biscuits for the first time (fantastic, by the way)

i was reunited with my dog after our first vacation away

i got a second-round interview type thing

i was given a one-off job on friday that will be really, really awesome

i put a ton of lotion on my body because i have neglected to buy sunscreen but then on the ride back from maine i bought sunscreen so i should be good in a little bit but until then, shoulder pain

i drove 5 hrs and 50 min from portland maine to randolph new jersey.

& lastly i did this: 

good night

humidity

sleepy eyes sleepy ears

soaked by thin streams

drunken gingerly, overflowing

into heavy lids heavy flesh

intonations dark and syrupy

slowly, slowly warmed hearts beat slowly

warmed breath leaves slowly

rumbles in sleepy heads

saturated air

Paris Je T’Aime (Day 2)

Christ, who’d would post a gallery about the second portion of their trip a month after their trip ended?! What is wrong with that person?

*Cough.*

I’ve been busy okay. And being without proper wifi much of the time doesn’t help a stitch.

Since I’ve gotten back I’ve hit the ground running at 96 Spring St., the Google experiential pop-up shop that I was conscripted to work before my trip. Between my two jobs, plus freelance work, I’ve been slammed for time. Juggling everything is actually beginning to be a problem, so I’m thinking I’ll drop something in exchange for, ya know, my life.

Updatum

(Datum is the singular of data.)

I planned to write this weeks ago.

I still really don’t have that much to say, but that I started writing and I’m going to keep writing until I can’t write it anymore, and then move on to the next thing I want to write, and hopefully self-loathing and fear aren’t going to appear for a while again soon (although if some things don’t change, I foresee those two squatting in my head-house in the near future, but that’s pessimistic and pessimism is what those two eat.)

Also, soon I will have more head space for things I actually want to think about, so that’s nice.

Plus, I’ll be able to purchase the books I want to read very soon.

And I really, really want to read again.

 

Updates!

This is Milo, aka star of @frenchiebutt on Instagram. I love him.

Why does WordPress keep changing its writing format. It’s like it’s in college trying out its sexuality. Or in high school trying out different outward identities.

Anyway, I haven’t posted in a while, and this is just to keep my blog from looking too empty. Otherwise I’ve been busy with school (I’m slotted to graduate in January if I pass this semester!) and work/not-working and pining for puppies and just everything.

Posts I have in mind that will hopefully come soon:

  • Articles about cool things if I can get them out in a timely fashion
  • A comparison on purported leather frags; some of which are lies I tell ya.
  • A comparison on cold weather gourmands, possibly.
  • The post on the preservation of New York City’s Chinatown that I still haven’t gotten to.
  • Maybe a mini-bio or two of people I like reading about, like Danny Meyers, Elizabeth Holmes

Alright, I have an exam in less than 4 hours, I should go.
