Just got back on here. Will update my photos soon, but they're all pretty much exactly what I look like right now, so, we can leave 'em for the moment.
I fucking love teaching and watching myself get better at it with every new bit of praxis comes my way. I'm applying to go back to grad school to get the degree that lets me teach full-time, shooting for Fall 2017.
So, realllly enjoying the thesis-free life :)
Wordlessly fixing long-dead keys? I guess?
Little Dragon, MJ, Twin Sister, Schoolboy Q, 70s funk, dad-rock, R&B
Westworld, Steven Universe, Simpsons [S02-S10], Adventure Time
Since I moved out here*, I've been trying to read less white men. 100% of everything written either caters to or is written by white men**, so I figured it would be good for me.
So: hardcore into Annie Proulx rn, who a neighbor traded me after I found out she hadn't read "A River Runs Through It" (the dryest, most Scotch-Presbyterian macho fucking adventure book ever) which she introduces. Haven't read "Brokeback," but "Heart Songs" bangs, you guys. Food, sex, guns, the woods, music, cowardice, avarice, pride, prejudice, and she's jamming it into such a tight space. So, that.
Annie Dillard could write the act of putting granola into yogurt so dizzyingly and sensually you'll think she kissed you on the forehead.
Nell Irvin Painter's History of White People has been really funny and extremely interesting.
Ok also: Vonnegut, obvi, James Baldwin, HST, Tim O'Brien, EB White, Gabriel Garcia Marquez -- basically if you got a lot of hope for humanity and can write rl sexy, hmu authors lol

idk man 2016 had some dogshit for movies, but Don't Breathe was wild, Moonlight kicked my butt, the Giant Squid-as-Koko the Gorilla movie was rad. Kubo was alright. Did anybody see Jungle Book? I have it on my HD but I still haven't watched it... Bill Murray's line reading in the trailer kinda broke my heart.
