first day of school, first day of library work, realizing i have an assignment due while in austin, getting pushback from rosanne cash concert, new dog acting bonkers, trying to figure out how to make it all work = stress level HIGH. changing careers and going back to school is not for the faint of heart. blasting this on repeat.

feel like someone injected wet cement into my veins

think it has to do with school starting monday and working on this concert and trying to get this mini library job and frankly all these jobs get me mad cement exhausted. BUT here are some cool things:

  • this ted talk (!) (first link to a ted talk on bookbinder?), “how to grow fresh air” — you kinda need a lot of plants to do it but still cool
  • this interview with also lizzi bougatsos (“My advice for young artists is to be open to doing anything. You have to be humble and you also have to do things you don’t want to do sometimes. It’s not always gonna be glamorous or fun, but that’s how you form who you are.“)
  • thinking about potential birthday presents
  • poet hanif adburraqib’s titles in general and this one specifically and also this one

i’m in love with this

and a playlist to go along with it:
