All of my aspirations are wrapped up in books.

I am somewhat intoxicated at current moment, so naturally, this is the perfect time to write a blog entry.

Despite the pressures of work and school, I’ve been making a ton of time to read over the past few weeks. Consequently, I’ve made my way through eight books so far this year and I’m presently in the midst of  books nine and ten. Granted, several of them were fairly short (under 200 pages) novellas, but regardless, it’s been nice to actually sit down and carve out the time to read books like Story of the Eye and The Stranger and Candide which have been on my “to-read” shelf on Goodreads for the better part of two years. Reading has in general just been a really nice way to escape from all of the craziness that’s been going on in my life lately. I know I say this all the time, but I really am in a period of flux (and extreme busyness, but that’s neither here nor there) right now and being able to say “fuck it” and go off and hide in a world where I don’t have to worry about things like post-college aspirations, love and loss, and letting go of the halcyon days of my youth.

I had the intention of writing a real entry, but now I’ve gone from bouncy-drunk to sleepy-drunk, so I think I may just eat a Popsicle and watch YouTube videos until I fall asleep. I’ll update again soon, though — I want to talk about the productivity software I’ve been using.
