Can I just throw myself on the floor
next to the cat food so that my babies will come sit with me.
Next month I will graduate, 2 of my best friends leave me, and I turn 26.
Amazing things, sad things, but it seems like right now all I am doing is suffering for the coming month.
…really, I said I was turning 26 not 16 like this entry would have you believe.

FUCK “SEXUALITY & MOTHERHOOD” IN TRISTRAM SHANDY.
I can’t even pronounce the name of the novel.
No joke; it takes me 3 times, each time, to fucking say it.
I just want to eat coconut ice cream.
I don’t even like coconut flavor. Or sweet things.
Fuck this degree.

If not write 50 lines a day, read a book of poems a day.
One of my favorite drunken activities is to read an entire book aloud to myself.
Yes, I’m often drinking by myself.

Benoit Paillé. Illuminated Landscapes.
Montreal-based photographer Benoit Paillé has been working on a fascinating series of landscapes using a bizarre lighting method involving a suspended glowing square. The images above are not photoshopped, the 1×1 meter light is instead hung in the center of each photograph and the resulting image shows the unique form of illumination that creeps into the surrounding area. Paillé says his goal is to redefine what a landscape photograph is by questioning its reality, creating a kind of poetic moment in space and time. You can see many more of his Alternative Landscapes on Flickr. (by Christopher)

“I actually attack the concept of happiness. The idea that - I don’t mind people being happy - but the idea that everything we do is part of the pursuit of happiness seems to me a really dangerous idea and has led to a contemporary disease in Western society, which is fear of sadness. It’s a really odd thing that we’re now seeing people saying “write down 3 things that made you happy today before you go to sleep”, and “cheer up” and “happiness is our birthright” and so on. We’re kind of teaching our kids that happiness is the default position - it’s rubbish. Wholeness is what we ought to be striving for and part of that is sadness, disappointment, frustration, failure; all of those things which make us who we are. Happiness and victory and fulfillment are nice little things that also happen to us, but they don’t teach us much. Everyone says we grow through pain and then as soon as they experience pain they say “Quick! Move on! Cheer up!” I’d like just for a year to have a moratorium on the word “happiness” and to replace it with the word “wholeness”. Ask yourself “is this contributing to my wholeness?” and if you’re having a bad day, it is.”

My paper is due in less than 3 hrs
and of course I made myself a badass meal, prepared another dish for when I come home on Sunday, and am on Tumblr.
On the other hand, I am sure that all I will ever need to do for the rest of my undergraduate English career is compare heroes to Jesus Christ and their friends to Mary Magdalene. Ivanhoe ain’t got nothin’.
