My self-summary
I'd rather be fishing.
What I’m doing with my life
I ask old people: tell me a joke?
I’m really good at
a professor in my developmental psych class mentioned a book titled: 'in search of memory', but he couldn't think of the title. I said, 'I know the book you're talking about.' he said, 'what was the name of that book?'...(the professor was an awesome guy, a dapper older jewish man, with tons of clinical experience teaching community college as a form of giving, of community. his short term memory was giving way, not in a misplace your keys sort of way, in a wondering down the block without your own name sort of way. and he knew it. as an old dapper jewish man and as a clinician. heartbreaking. but the guy was sweet and funny and accepting of his fate. and still a decent teacher inspite of things)...'I don't remember,' I say. he moves on, starts speaking. full seconds later I say 'in search of memory'. he looks at me with that sweet smart happy lost look of his, brow furrowed, he nods in the affirmative, and goes on. that professor would say: 'the more you do, the more you can do.' he didn't say: 'being good at shit is over-rated. i mean, fuck it, just do things.' not in so many words.

someone I asked for a book recommendation suggested 'play it as it lays' by Joan Didion. I told her I was saving Didion for when I hit menopause. moral: I want your book recommendations, I might mock them.
