Today, Mom and I made our favorite Thanksgiving break potato leek soup and I sorted through testaments of what everyone was thankful for and turned it into something that could be published and I slept until 11 am (?!?) and did some weird reading for class about writing tables and sexual orientation and now it’s pitch black at 515 and my belly full of soup tells me it’s time for some Netflix on the couch with a dog as a blanket.
n. the desire to care less about things—to loosen your grip on your life, to stop glancing behind you every few steps, afraid that someone will snatch it from you before you reach the end zone—rather to hold your life loosely and playfully, like a volleyball, keeping it in the air, with only quick fleeting interventions, bouncing freely in the hands of trusted friends, always in play.
A powerful, well-organized coalition did everything it could, with no results. Now advocates are preparing to shift from lobbying to revenge.
"The immigration fight, in this regard, is a parable of American politics in the age of gridlock—when even popular legislation favored by bipartisan majorities of lawmakers, including leadership, and backed by a passionate grassroots coalition, can fail for seemingly no reason at all.”
I can’t stop watching the 2010 Acrobatic Gymnastics World Champs you can’t make me how do they bend that way and why can I only lift 10 pounds five to seven times before hitting the exhaustion zone.
1.5 DAYS UNTIL THANKSGIVING BREAK and all of my papers are handed in and only 100 pages left to read about the FDA’s war on tobacco and a mere 3.83 hours of class stand between me and FREEDOM and celebratory dinners and 6 am shuttles to the airport and a little T-bear to cuddle with and just I can’t wait to be 575 miles away from Olin Library.
"I always thought delivering mail would be easy. But it’s really hard work to keep up with your schedule. Because the way they calculate time in the office is not how it happens on the street."
How appropriate for my public policy reading about bureaucracy. This is my tumblr study break telling me to get back to business.
