Most of the way through graduation weekend
I pick up Brian at 8:00 am tomorrow at the airport. Then I speak at the ceremony at noon. Then I’m done. WOOOO. Probably going to bed right now, as this whole deal has been exhausting.
Graduation is upon me
I do believe I’m going to cope by being blitzed on vodka and syrup throughout the weekend. I may even make sneaky punch if my family stresses me out enough.
I'm the graduation speaker for my program on...
So far all I’ve got is mushy nostalgic stuff and shit-talking about which deli has the best reuben. Sigh. What else should I talk about? I have 3-5 minutes. http://americangothicqueer.tumblr.com/ask

Oh, and I graduate this weekend
I just realized that since I’m relatively new to Tumblr and never post random details about my life that probably no one knows I get my master’s degree on Sunday. I’m barely believing it myself. Damn.
Finally starting United States of Tara, S2
Liiiiittle behind here, y’all. But since I don’t have Showtime I won’t see Season 3 until it’s on Netflix anyway so I guess it doesn’t matter.
It's 71 today
Just spent over an hour walking from my house, along the river greenway thingie, and through two parks to get to campus. Now I’m Tumbling in the computer lab and then going on to the gym. Spring Saturday turned into sneaky physical fitness day or something, and I’m fine with that.
Capstone isn't over but meh
Going to the gay bar w/Justin. Expect shenanigans.

What have you done for me lately, Tumblr?
Livejournal just extended my paid account by two weeks to compensate for the multiple times it was down recently. Whatcha got, Tumblr?! (I know I don’t pay you $, but still. Your much older step-sister is showing you up.)
Done with classes
Last night was a good end to my days as a student, at least for this degree. After the last day of classes, Danny had folks over with a keg of Oberon. I got there around 7:00 with donut holes, spring cupcakes, and TRON CUPCAKES. Thank you, Kroger, for thinking that children would want those for their birthday parties so 27-year old grad students could snatch them up instead. Anyhow, we drank on...
Midday grocery shopping
A Coke guy and a Pepsi guy were simultaneously stocking the soda aisle at Meijer just now. Aren’t they supposed to fight, or have a dramatic standoff, or something?
Maybe I drink too many bloody marys?
Every time I take the first sip from a glass of V8, I spend half a second wondering why I can’t taste any vodka. The clear solution is to just add vodka.

Week ends with a flop
My entire day was falling apart, and was about to culminate in me punching a fax machine at Kinky’s*. Buuuut I asked my dear boyfriend to fax a document for me, and I made an eye exam for next week to milk my vision insurance before it’s gone. And now things are just fine. NAPTIME
Was away from Tumblr all day
Wow, y’all have a lot of things to post.
That's enough, master's project.
I’m completely rewriting the introduction to our capstone plan. Because after I incorporated more than 200 comments from seven people in the 12-page version we were using, the instructors decided it needed a major overhaul. The timing would be funny if it weren’t such a waste of my time.
This has been a productive evening
I’m playing Amanda Blank while watching muted Youtube videos of Snoopy dancing. He’s perfectly in sync.

About to leave for dinner with Emily!
The last time I saw Emily* was June 19, 2010, on the night that I (re)met my now-boyfriend. It was one of the best nights of that year, not just for that fact but because she’s the coolest and we get along famously. Nooooow I’m on her turf and about to go eat a pile of shellfish with she and her girlfriend. SO. EXCITED. * Best friend from NC. We lived in the same apartment complex...
And that means I’m in Boston Friday through Tuesday. Somehow I’ll survive.
When urban planners travel
Is it bad that I want to cancel my hotel reservation because the building is hideous? It looks like it’s made of Duplos. And not in a good way. Google Street View has ruined me.
Grad school, you ignorant slut
I don’t read comments on online news stories. Ever. My life has been much less rage-filled and more peaceful since I decided long ago to ignore them completely. It looks like Track Changes on capstone documents are also going in that boat. Just going to accept all edits and not even read the comments. Sigh.
Just followed lots of new folks. Curious about me?... →

Weekend in the District
Brian just went off to work. I cleaned up the kitchen and am now getting ready to go out while blasting Kelis remixes. Meeting up with Keith, Tristan and anyone else that’s out at Nellie’s in 45 minutes. Love. this. town.
Off to the airport!
See ya in DC, Tumblr.
