Afternoon. Y'all have coffee here too? I'd love a Cortado.
Hard at work in the lecture-free period: 2 final papers due mid-September. Family visited (kind of a shitshow but ultimately fun and strengthened our relationships, I think), so I had a bit of a break, but now it's back in the library. Writing 15 pages about Heinrich Heine and 9 about Milo Rau (Swiss Theater artist-- totally fascinating guy). It's a good thing I enjoy academic work, because the summer is really fucking nice here (not exactly hard-work-friendly).
Continue to beat down depressions as they pop up. Swimming, surviving, etc. Speaking of which, the new Mac Miller album is awesome. Check it out if you're into hip hop and/or artistic representations of coping.
Also getting weirdly good at foosball, and finally convinced my best friend to join Hubski (hi izzy417)! Life's good.
