I got two letters in one day yesterday, from the same person. I tore through them at the kitchen table, then read them again in bed, then re-read them this afternoon before writing a response to them. I added to the response to an envelope already thick with unsent letters—I have a thing about sending a lot at once, rather than one at a time—and then sealed it and dropped it in the...

This concern with aim or results, with differentiating and passing judgment on various thinkers is therefore an easier task than it might seem. For instead of getting involved with the real issue, this kind of activity is always away beyond it; instead of tarrying with it, and losing itself in it, this kind of knowing is forever grasping at something new; it remains essentially preoccupied with...

charlietangofoxtrot: astationaryjew: thewhywhygirl: phdork: This may well be the best use of the internet ever: crowd-sourcing adjunct working conditions as way to introduce transparency to and positive pressure on institutions that exploit the holy hell out of their highly skilled and dedicated workers. Get on it. $6,800 per 3 crédit course would be heaven since I 1,700 meant forgoing...
gussyyoself: tonight i went and saw dean spade talk about his latest book titled “normal life.” sometimes i don’t really like to go see well-known authors, figures what-have-yous talk because i feel like they are treated as some sort of star… which they obviously are. like for example angela davis came and talked for less than an hour at Mcgill. but it’s this weird crux in activist...

i went to a frou-frou soap store today and tried some zodiac perfume. their taurus scent was wayyyy too sharp and flowery. seriously, a taurus scent needs to be, like, leather and saddle soap, or zucchini bread baking, or petrichor, or water that’s a little too hot in the shower.

There was an unseasonable thaw at the beginning of February. The snowdrifts in the yards melted and revealed piles of mud; what I thought was just snow turned out to be thrown-out mattresses or discarded desk chairs, now soggy and rotting. Grey water sluiced down the streets, puddling at the curb cuts. Part of the top of my cheap pair of patent boots from the thrift store peeled off from the...
