92…Is the number of books on my “to read” list after completing week 5/6 at the publishing course. An inverse relationship is growing between the number of books I want (NEED) to read and the amount of free time I have, which currently has been reduced to:
before I’m ready to be fully awake
before I’m ready to be fully asleep
Subway rides
Train rides
The three minutes before lectures begin when most people are looking at Instagram or texting.

Dark Garden

I once had a garden filled with flowers that grew only on dark thoughts but they need constant attention & one day I decided I had better things to do.

-Story People

First official trip to the famous Hungarian Pasty Shop on 111th to commemorate the beginning of book workshop week aka the week we all might die from lack of sleep and over-stress. It’s like the week before comps all over again! Except more fun and without grades and I hopefully find a job at the end.

Dress Up Box For The Future

this is a dress-up box for the future & it’s filled with stuff like courage & love & play because they’re the only things that are any use at all when you get right down to it.

The Sociology of Sorry

Lately social media has been giving me anxiety so naturally I started a 1150 page book to start filling up the odd moments between lectures after meals before bed where a phone would normally suffice. Note: the phone was lighter.

First major CPC assignment is done and even though it’s one of the lesser ones of the dozens that are left in the next 5 weeks (1 week down, ah!) I am letting myself be proud and relieved. As a reward: free reading on the lawn between the two libraries in the comfortingly warm summer sun.
