Back when I was a wee high schooler, and when Soft Skull Press has a brick and mortar, I picked up a small poetry chapbook at random and immediately became enamored. I always loved reading, but poetry, I thought, this would be my thing. Continue reading musculus
Finally checked off a visit to Beco do Batman in São Paulo.
I heard a podcast about Mother! about a month ago, but apparently none of it stuck with me. I remember the vague sensation of “Oh, I’d like to see that,” but cannot recall any of the conversation around what the movie was about.
That may also be because it’s almost impossible to say what it’s about. (I’m also finding it impossible to say if I liked it. Or not.) Continue reading Mother!
I wrote before that I’ve been extra sensitive to my diet these days, meaning little to no soy products. I also do a fair amount of weightlifting which, for me, means being mindful of how much protein I get since I’m also vegetarian and could easily live on pasta and pizza for the rest of my life.

Taken in Newark, NJ.
It’s no secret that I love Rio. A lot. Probably more than what would be considered normal for someone who’s only been twice.

The end of the human race will be that it will eventually die of civilization.
I started watching Black Mirror while I was in Brazil. After dinner one night, we decided it was time for some Netflix-ing. I can’t remember if one of us had had already watched an episode, or we picked it randomly. I still miss some things in Portuguese, but I’m working on it, okay? Continue reading Black Mirror
That’s it! A whole year, in photos.
One week left. I’m determined to not miss any of these final days now that it’s just one week left. As I get closer to the end of things, my focus often peters out, so now’s an excellent time to challenge that.
Two more weeks. There’s Christmas decorations everywhere. The weather is frighteningly warm. And I’m exhausted from the early sunset. What a weird time of year. Continue reading 365 Photos – 50/52
So many pictures this week, and so many days missed! WordCamp US happened this past weekend, which means everything was a whirlwind. Continue reading 365 Photos – 48-49/52 (NY and Philly Style)
