  4. Found a Thing That Brings Me Joy

    pearlgains:

    so i visited MIT the other night and there were sirens for an ambulance. well, it turns out the MIT kids figured out how to hook up iPods to the ambulance. so you hear sirens and then all of a sudden you hear “MOVE BITCH GET OUT THE WAY” blasting. 

    MIT kids are weird.

    I really really hope that this is real.

  6. I am obsessed with this album. 

     
  7. I write a lot of poetry. The ones I feel like sharing can be found here. Last year I took a class by a guy, Bill Corbett. Bill is one of the most interesting people I’ve ever met. He’s this 73 year old poet from Boston/Brooklyn who wears polka dot socks. He taught at MIT up until this semester and I’ve taken 3 of his classes. Bill’s one of those people who seems to know everyone. Anyway, he asked me last fall if I’d be willing to team up with a graduate student in Boston University’s art program. Later that winter, I was paired up with Rob, a painter from North Carolina. I sent him a bunch of my poems and he created paintings, drawings and prints inspired by them. The purpose of the project was to make a book (to be interpreted loosely) — the final project for the grad students.

  9. RE: My Feelings Right Now

    Exhaustion:

    Being super hosed and having multiple long papers and projects and papers due in the same week on top of lectures, work at job_1 and work at job_2 and finally work at job_3.

    The class where even though we technically aren’t supposed to have any more assignments as of today as per Institute policy, we still have a paper due next week. And the assignment hasn’t been posted yet.

    How I feel regarding the philosophy paper I am currently writing:

    How I’m feeling about having “finished” the paper and am now faced with the process of editing it. 

    to be continued
