Hahahahaha yeah.

I love this essay about essays about quitting academia:

Also, this is an old one, but I am just now realizing how relevant it is:

I am trying to be open-minded about Indiana, really I am, but it has not been working out for me. I guess I am just a prejudiced, snobby East Coast urban elitist. But seriously? When even rural Georgia is better than where you live, probably where you live actually does objectively suck.

I thought you were in Philly this week?

I am totally in Philly this week, and I am so glutted on happiness that I don't know what to do with myself. It's like I have been so starved from the lack of happiness that even the absence of sadness is making me feel fat and useless.

Also I was in Locust Moon yesterday, and Chris Stevens offered to shake my hand, and I was like: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

He was like, Hey, you should have been in here two nights ago, I would have introduced you to Kyle Cassidy, and I was like: FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

It was intense.


I hope I didn't creep him out.

Now that less snot is shooting out of my face and trying to mug passers-by, we should hang out.
