It is the best of times, and it is the worst of times.

with one comment

Yes, this is going to be one of those deeper, introspective posts blogdom tends to draw from people.

I’m always weary of the beginning of a new semester. And while this one is no different, for the first time in a while I feel I’m starting almost entirely anew. I’m perched at a kitchen table, in my very first off-campus house. I’m making my own food (tonight’s an experimental mash-up of buffalo style popcorn chicken and mac ‘n cheese spirals). I don’t really have a significant other. I don’t have a night job.

For the past 3 semesters I’ve been a resident of a fraternity that cooked for me, arranged my social schedule, and kept me awake much longer into the night than I often wished.

I’m beating around the bush a bit, but I think the most positive way to look at things right now is I have plenty of time to spend with myself. I no longer sleep 6 feet from my best friend Ken. And I no longer regularly have someone else’s body hugging my curves while visions of sugar plums dance in our heads.

Which is, to be honest, a little weird and uncommon.

For better or for worse, I guess.

Things I love today:

Bon Iver – For Emma, Forever Ago
I’m told Bon Iver is spelled wrong—that they meant to be “good winter” in French, which would be “Bon Hiver”—but the music is anything but a bad translation. The name of the album hits the mood spot-on, and singer Justin Vernon’s super-indie sound cuts to the bone like a rush of wind-blown snow.

Californication Season 2
Just finished the latest season of David Duchovny’s sex-fueled comedy, and I can’t wait for the third. Duchovny’s character, an inspiration-deprived LA writer who fucks an endless stream of women trying to fill the void caused by the loose relationship he has with his baby’s momma. Confused? See the show.

  1. I didn’t know you knew French. Also, I really liked how you described the album – very eloquent, Tony Brown.
