Well, maybe not always always, but this morning I woke up and a song came on that reminded me of playing the alphabet game and singing along to the songs we both love in the car on the drive home from Kenyon and having the usually-monotonous stretch of I-80 pass in what seemed like 25 minutes and it made me smile, even though I was up too early on a Saturday as per usual and my head hurt a little from cheap wine but I smiled because six days doesn’t seem like too unbearable of a wait anymore.

More support for why growing up in the 90s was the best and TV has never been the same and I miss the Amanda Show.

I&#8217;m about to embark on the journey that is my last research paper of my college career and it&#8217;s about Bridgegate and it&#8217;s not even that serious. How did we get here?

Today I met Robert Putnam, ate fancy cheese with fancy political economists, watched the sunset from the VI patio, shed my jacket while walking outside (could it really be spring?), found something in common with a policy reporter for the Washington Post and that thing was that we both gave up coffee for Lent. 
Picture of contentment.
