A Picture: It’s worth a thousand words. Boy. Ironic.

img_0057Is that irony? Irony that there are way more than a thousand words that I have to slog through? Probably not. But, if you are wondering where I am for the next day and a half? I’m sitting behind this stack of books, sobbing. Reading, but sobbing. Out of happiness Mom. Happiness that I get to be a student for only a few more months. Well. A few more.. ok.. 6 years. Alright. Whatever. Forever. That’s where I am, behind those books, thrilled. And smoking.

ps – Thrill alert: I took the job for the mag. And I’m sending and receiving a million e-mails a day about designers, models, hair, accessories and it is SO exciting. Mostly because I get to talk to people I secretly blog stalk a lot legitimately. There, I said it and now you know for sure how uncool I am. However, because we’re focusing on a Home Grown theme, I get to talk to and expose little and underexposed designers etc that may not get a lot of play. Which makes me so happy.

    and i know how you feel about the reading/sobbing with all those philosophy books. i got my ba in english but with a minor in philosophy so i know exactly the kind of slogging that philosophical works (particularly with mr. communist manifesto himself.)

    good luck :]

    Good news about the job. The stack of book looks fun, to me, compared to the drivel I often read before falling asleep.

    Of course, then I see the Hegel, chuckle to myself and return to my pulp fiction. Enjoy!

  8. Congrats on the job – woo-hoo!

    And that is a lot of Marx. Wow.
