GRAD SCHOOL ANGST
lbeecofall: whatshouldwecallgradschool: Daily.
jhnmyr: New record this Summer… Not a Born and Raised “plus”… A new group of songs to bring the whole thing up to date with Summer 2013. I have that hunger that always precedes something meaningful. See you all soon. And thanks for the warm welcome back to the stage. Getting back on it a little at a time. John
It's still early and other such ramblings...
Dear Aditi, Maybe you should rethink that “I don’t need to employ a mental/verbal filter” thing that you have going on. Love, Aditi x

Who says I can't be free from all of the things...
This week, for the first time since last summer, I left the house without an ounce of make-up on. Now, I’m not one to go out with in complete warpaint, but my daily routine consists of a light blush, eyeliner, mascara (if I’m up to it) and tinted lip balm. Getting ready is exhausting. But it’s not just the make-up that’s exhausting - it’s all of it. Each morning I wake up at least two hours...

My life, as portrayed by Shoshanna
Ray: You need any help?
Shoshanna: I'm fine, thank you. It's pretty shiny so I'll probably find it soon.
Ray: Pretty bitchin' cheese plate you brought over. The, uh, computer tells me you unfriended me on facebook.
Shoshanna: Yeah, well I didn't feel like seeing you in my feed anymore.
Ray: That's not very nice.
Shoshanna: Yeah, well, you weren't very nice. You hurt me, okay? You hurt my feelings but I can deal with it because I have my big girl pants on.
Ray: You realise you're actually wearing-
Shoshanna: I don't think that's funny; that's not funny to me.
Ray: Look, I don't want you to be upset with me.
Shoshanna: Are you kidding me? You don't want to date me, that's fine. Because I don't want to date you either because I only want to date people who want to date me because that is called self respect. But I do not have to like you, okay? You were never my friend, you were only my lover and that is now over.
Ray: You know, when I'm not around you - when you just send me a text full of emojis - it is so easy to dismiss you.
Shoshanna: What is wrong with emojis?
Ray: A panda next to a gun next to a wrapped gift..? It makes no sense.
Shoshanna: You make no sense! You rejected me and you are now insulting me and you do not get to have me like you now. So, you should-
Ray: Hold on, let me finish, okay? What I wanted to say is when I'm around you I remember, okay? I remember. I remember your charm, your innocence, your strength, this beautiful, fresh, vibrant sincerity.
Shoshanna: You know, I-um, I'm really tired of being insulted, even when it comes before a compliment, so I am now leaving.
Another year, another summation of my emotions
1. What did you do in 2012 that you’d never done before? Start grad school; take the Amtrak; visit Cambodia; spend two months in India; be so excited I was laughing/shrieking/crying all at the same time; turn 21; stop letting boys treat my heart like monkey meat. 2. Did you keep your new years’ resolutions, and will you make more for next year? Partially. I kept my resolutions for six months....
