Already on li.st? Open in app.
Or maybe it's just one of those periods where I feel like my uterus will kill me
- •Every time I stood up today I got tunnel vision
- •My lower back has been in pain since I woke up
- •My hands have been shaking more than usual
- •Have I ever had any to begin with?
- •Can such a thing be found or must it be learned?
- •Who knows
Because I have books all over this room and it would be a v long list to name all of them
- •Wuthering Heights by Emily BrontëA thrift store find from this summer, the last time I was here, I think. Have yet to read it.
- •The Defining Decade by Meg JayOne of the presents I got today from @catdrake10 bc she's the best. Only on the floor bc it's my temporary present storage area until I pack up to leave again
- •Slouching Towards Bethlehem by Joan Didion!!!! Also from @catdrake10 bc she remains the best. Probably too excited to read this. Do I wait until I go back to school? Read it on the plane? Read it now? In a week? So many options!
I spend way too much time just going back and rewatching Parks and Rec or Pushing Daisies tbh
- •Jessica JonesMost recent start, so I guess I haven't given myself enough time to finish it, but I like it so far
- •Call the MidwifeStarted this last winter break and enjoyed it but got sidetracked by Community (which I finished)
- •The X-FilesAnother last winter break start, but couldn't find a groove. Will definitely finish this eventually
My mother taught me well
- •So I have this thing where I get all kinds of anxious before a flight
- •I travel a lot back and forth from school and home, so you'd think it'd go away by now, but alas I am not that lucky
- •It really only sets in like shortly before I'm supposed to leave
One of my bosses at the Writing Center and I had a conversation about the lack of representation in children's literature of both city environments and non-white people in those diverse cities. So I set out on a quest to compile a list for her, and now you can see it too!! All descriptions from Amazon.
- •Brothers of the Knight | Debbie Allen & ill. Kadir NelsonReverend Knight can't understand why his twelve sons' sneakers are torn to threads each and every morning, and the boys aren't talking. A modern retelling of The Twelve Dancing Princesses. Location: Harlem
- •The Boy Who Didn't Believe in Spring | Lucille Clifton & ill. Brinton TurkleTwo skeptical city boys set out to find spring which they've heard is "just around the corner."
- •Down in the Subway | Miriam Cohen & ill. Melanie Hope GreenbergA meets the Island Lady on the subway. Out of her bag comes an ocean breeze, a Caribbean meal, a steel band and a party he will never forget!
Not including the books I got for my friends who are on this app (even tho Jules probably deleted it) bc it's very obvious who they're for. Instead these are for my mom, sister, bff, sister's boyfriend, and favorite person on this entire planet (technically 5 people have that spot but she gets the label most often).
- •Emails from an Asshole by John LindsayFor sister's boyfriend. Originally grabbed it thinking it had to do with Corporate America but then it was about Craigslist Ads so it's even better.
- •You Deserve A Drink by Mamrie HartWas looking for something funny for my sister and she likes drinking, so I think this'll be a good fit for her. Definitely might read this before I wrap it...
- •Shut Up, You're Welcome by Annie ChoiAnother humor book for my sister since I didn't think David Sedaris would be her thing and this seemed more approachable.
Baring my soul on List App bc that's what people do here, right?
- •I don't trust pretty guysLike, they know they're pretty, everyone tells them, they don't need me. They could have anyone...why would they be interested in me?? Also their egos are so annoying ugh congrats you won the gene lottery move on with your life
- •I pick unattainable guys to crush onWHY DO I HATE MYSELF
- •I idealize and romanticize everything way too muchBut really.
Tbh I'm trying to convince myself that I'm capable of getting a Bachelor's, I can't even fathom a Master's let alone a Doctorate. But the world is endlessly fascinating and I love learning so here are some degrees that would be kick ass.
- •Master of Arts in Children's LiteratureOkay so this is on my list of "Actual Options For Masters When I Convince Myself I'm Capable" bc I made a joke my senior year of high school that I'd only get a Master's in children's literature bc I love it and it's relevant to my field (yeah, education!) and then I found out it's a real option. Would def consider actually pursuing this.
- •Master of Arts in Museum StudiesAnother on the "Actual Options For Masters When I Convince Myself I'm Capable" list. Getting this degree would kind of be my official foray out of the public education system, but a career in museums is like everything I want out of life right now so...I think by the time I'm done teaching I'd be ready for it.
- •Master of Science in Library (and Information) ScienceMy friend is pursuing this degree and I think it's super cool and interesting so I'll probably just read everything she gets assigned and call it a day.
Because I am the last person on campus, yay holiday duty! I don't mind doing these things, I just think it's funny.
- •Returning library books at the public libraryCatie's books are due tomorrow but mine were due last week so this is really more for me than it is for her
- •Returning library books at the school libraryHave yet to "break into" (read: key in bc fellow RA) friend's room to find the books that need to go back.
- •Turning in ASL hours sheet for a resident????? Apparently this is a thing I'm doing?? I felt like I couldn't tell her friend no...like, that'd just be mean. But like...why ask your RA?? Whatever
