Work has been solid. The money and experience are great. I'm a slut for both of those things. School is fine. I don't exert much effort, but the grades are there. Donald Trump is going to be my country's president soon. The way I feel about that is probably how my grandmother felt when President Obama was elected. This is likely thinly-veiled revenge by the racist and nearly dead, because it's not like they'll live to see the consequences. I'd be mad if I didn't respect it so much.
I used to write a lot more on a different site and the content was usually deeper or more personal than what I publish here. What happened is that I got older and realized I disliked most other people that bared too much of their lives to the internet. It followed that I began revering my privacy and closed myself in areas where I previously wasn't, to people I previously wasn't. I put a wall up and it usually feels good. I can see that wall in the way I write here and especially contrasted with how I write privately. The few posts I've written are superficial and not at all interesting if you like reading about a person. The dilemma is that I don't really know if that's something I want to work on. Privacy can be good, but so can opening yourself. We'll see what happens. Even if I wanted to write more expressively and openly, I don't know if I could. But I shouldn't let that stop me.
Since we last talked, I've read these books and you should too:
Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking by Malcolm Gladwell
How to Lie with Statistics by Darrell Huff
Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal by Christopher Moore
The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August by Claire North
The Old Man and The Sea by Ernest Hemingway
Here's some music I've been repeatedly, abusively listening to this week:
Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats by Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats
Yours, Dreamily by The Arcs
Other assorted tracks
I also started watching Vinyl on HBO. Highly recommended if you dig music, the music business, or Martin Scorsese.
