Are Quarter Life Crisis’s a New Thing? And other thoughts of a jaded grad student...


I think you can have it all! The acting and the writing and the house in Italy. I think it goes something like this: You write a 21st century staple and everybody wants to be part of it. You have studios bidding in the billions and George Clooney calling your personal cell phone saying he can pass for 35 and would kick ass at the role. You then play the lead in the movie which is really just the first stop to Broadway where your talent can be appreciated 8 shows a week. And congratulations now you’re a very rich actress/writer with a house in Italy and a castle in Ireland! See easy :) As far as Ben and the wanting different things, I have never been in a relationship that lasted longer than 5 minutes so I can’t really help you there, but as your friend I’m going to say the whole it will work out and I’m always here if you need to talk bit! I mean it too, even if it’s not very helpful.

The Peace Corps lost my finger print package and I keep thinking it may be some kind of sign. Like a wait a minute, take a deep breath, is this really what you want kind of sign. And the thing is I don’t know what I want. I’ve wanted to do the Peace Corps for years, but I’m also about to finish a Master’s and the only thing I can think about is how this is never what I wanted to do and I was a coward to not go to college for music. Yeah, it’s a really hard life and one out of a million people make it, but why couldn’t I be one in a million? I feel like I’m having a midlife crisis at 23 years old. I also feel like we need to have two couches in our book shop for therapy sessions, but at least we’ll never have to pay a professional!

On a happier, I live in Europe so I’m going to make the most of it note, I’m going to Spain/Portugal for 11 days! One of my friends from Elmira lives in Madrid so I’m going to spend a few days with her and I figured why not make it into a vacation of sorts so I’m going to travel around (I love the train system in Europe!) and I know I’m going to do Barcelona and Lisbon, but other than that it’s still up in the air. I’m calling it my between finals and thesis mental health break.

April NaNo is going very much like regular NaNo meaning I don’t have very much to show for all that’s going on in my head, but I still have most of the month and I’m determined to have something to show for my character sketches – they want a story and I want to give it to them. I’m glad you’re a writer because that sounds slightly crazy like I have a bit of dissociative identity disorder and that just doesn’t look very good (and by good I mean sane) to the rest if the world :p

I finished my video on final cut! It actually came out pretty good. I sent it to you as a message on facebook because it’s a big file and I didn’t feel like keeping it on my computer. It’s part of an advocacy campaign project, but I think it turned out to be just the right amount of information and humor. I hope you like it!

All right I need to go write a paper on the evolution of democratic participation in the museum. It’s going to be hoot. Really, I’m wearing my happy face and everything.


P.S/ I feel like I should have posted pictures, but I don’t have any new ones so I found this on google images and it can be motivation for us to finally sit down and write that trilogy! Imagine having a book store here :)
