obligatory text post of the day
I suppose it’s not really accurate to say you’re having a mid-life crisis when you’re only 19, especially considering a “mid-life crisis” describes a particular time period rather than just one day. Instead I’ll use “mid-term crisis” because it’s the middle of the term and the “crisis” in mind arrived due to the fact that I had to...
My mom keeps reminding me that I can’t be good at everything. “Sometimes,” she said, “no matter how hard you try, you just weren’t meant to be good at it.” Which is hard for me to be okay with because I want to be good at everything. I want to be the very best. That no one ever was.

I would like to be able to say
that this morning I just jumped out of bed, slid into my jeans, then went off on my merry way. But no. No I did not. I squeezed myself into my jeans. I convinced myself they were wearable and then I prayed to God as I biked to my destination that they wouldn’t rip apart at the seams at some point during the day. Which is what they feel like they’re about to do. Also, my legs...

I bike so slow that a little kid on a tricycle once passed me.

This year, at the 54th Grammy Awards, Bon Iver won Best New Artist over Skrillex and Nicki Minaj. When this was announced, I was in the lounge. I was really excited; everyone else was, “Who the fuck is Bon Iver?” BON IVER, my friends, is the beautiful artist who created the beautiful album For Emma, Forever Ago while holed up in a cabin in northwestern Wisconsin for three months....

My pre-major adviser has advised that, since my current end-career of choice deals with writing on demand, perhaps I should start posting regular text posts on a blog to get used to writing when I have to, not just when I want to. So Tuesdays and Thursdays have become Obligatory Tuesday/Thursday Post days. And my first one is on the crazy ridiculous Jeremy Lin. I know nothing about basketball...
Me: Seriously Buddy, I don't know what I'm going to do if I fail these next two midterms too. I'm going to have to change my major. I'm going to crawl into a cave and never come out again.
Buddy: Don't do that. Even bears come out of their caves eventually.

shit my math professor says
“Something we’re going to do today is more fun. Fun that is narrowly defined by calculus!” “Well this is where the fun REALLY starts. And by fun, I mean calculus!” “We’re finally in the promise land of doing calculus with infinite series!” “Alright, let’s see another application. This goes into the category of fun with power...

Haikus for My Ex-Boyfriends 1. Remember when you left my V-Day gift at home ? Yeah right you asshole. 2. I still keep it tucked away somewhere on my bed. It’s a small comfort. 3.

And then Tim video-chats me via my phone and says, “I just wanted to see your face because I haven’t seen you in awhile!” And then he said I’m getting chubby.

TA: Okay, what's your favorite convergent function?
TA: Okay, um, what's the easiest convergent function you can think of?
Me: I hate math.
RA: I hate life.
Me: This is a terrible conversation.
My roll of Kentmere 100 B&W film finally developed. High-quality scanning too, which kind of makes the price I paid for it to be done by Lomography.com worth it.

The Aeneid by Virgil
When the hero Aeneas travels to the underworld and then sees his old lover, Dido Book 4 “The World Below”, lines 613 - 633: The Trojan captain paused nearby and knew Her dim form in the dark, as one who sees, Early in the month, or thinks to have seen, the moon Rising through cloud, all dim.
