-I just finished Cormac McCarthy's All the Pretty Horses and it made me love and miss my desert and the English language. I finished it feeling very whimsically complete. A quote that many of you will relate to:
"They said that a man leaves much when he leaves his own country. They said that it was no accident of circumstance that a man be born in a certain country and not some other and they said that the weathers and seasons that form a land form also the inner fortunes of men in their generations and are passed on to their children and are not so easily come by otherwise."
-I should be writing more, because maybe if I wrote enough I'd have 1/10 of Cormac McCarthy's talent
-I'm moving in about 30 days and we don't have a new place yet
-Our new beach town wasn't as great as we thought it'd be, so we're going to live in the next town over
-Am I going to find students?
-I'm going to spend about 1 million hours on buses this month on bus trips to the beach town on the weekends to help Alexandre look for apartments
- I'm moving in about 30 days and we don't have a new place yet
-I need to find a way to get cardboard boxes from the supermarket to my house without a car
-The wind is loud and it rattles our crappy window shutters and when it goes through the palm trees it sounds like a gorilla stomping through the tall grass
-It's funny how something slightly irritating suddenly becomes unbearable once it has an end date
-To throw myself a going-away party or to not throw myself a going-away party?
-Our top-floor apartment is leaking in 5 places and the landlord hasn't done anything about it all summer and I give up because I'm leaving in 30 days
-I'm leaving in 30 days and I have to pack up the whole apartment by myself and we don't have a new place yet
-Diet shakes are not a good idea for dinner if you can't sleep. You'll get hungry at 1am
-This once-a-week morning class just won't do.
What useless things do you stay awake thinking about?
