What/who do you associate with me?
I’m curious. What are the, say, top 5 things you associate with me?
Can be a tumblr user, a book, movie, character, actor etc.
one of my roommates has a fancy-schmancy internship at the law school and she’s been put in charge of their social media campaign for IWD2014 and today she came home from an event wearing a pencil skirt and heels and being like, “oh my god i have to write a blog by 4:00 and i don’t even know how to log in to the site what even is tumblr what am i going to doooo”
and i, slouched over my laptop at the kitchen table in sweatpants and unbrushed hair, straightened up and said, “this is my moment”
so then i taught her how to use tumblr
it was awesome
DON’T LET THE BASTARDS GRIND YOU DOWN
forty degrees today. walked downtown and bought pork chops, milk, and apples from my favorite local butcher/grocer. plus a bottle of white wine from the wine store next door. i feel like a norman rockwell painting.
NYT: What books are you embarrassed not to have read yet?
TEJU COLE: I have not read most of the big 19th — century novels that people consider “essential,” nor most of the 20th-century ones for that matter. But this does not embarrass me. There are many films to see, many friends to visit, many walks to take, many playlists to assemble and many favorite books to reread. Life’s too short for anxious score-keeping. Also, my grandmother is illiterate, and she’s one of the best people I know. Reading is a deep personal consolation for me, but other things console, too."
