What I’m doing with my life
Getting a PhD in how strange the world is. Running (mostly long distance). Baking. Reading (lit, essays, journalism, mostly). Building things -- shiny things.

Spending the rest of my time aimlessly wandering Camberville. Want to join me?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Books in progress: West With the Night by Beryl Merkham & Small Gods by Terry Pratchett

Writers I like: Ta-Nehisi Coates [journalist], Ezra Klein [journalist], Jia Tolentino [journalist], Richard K. Morgan, David Foster Wallace, Patrick Rothfuss, J.K. Rowling, Brandon Sanderson, Oliver Sacks, Neil Gaiman, Nabokov, ...

TV: John Oliver is a genius. I'm pretty happy with Colbert's new show. Seth Meyers is adorable.

Music: Yes.

Food: Yes.
