#thatawkwardmoment after a phone interview when you know you need to head straight back to the job boards.
Out to eat with my parents and betting on where our waitress is from based on her accent. It was pretty clearly a Dutch accent, but my parents voted for Scandinavian countries.
me: Who’s gonna ask?
mom: why are you looking at me?
me: you’re the loudest.
mom: *sigh* well you’re the bravest!
dad: I’m the meekest.
me: doesn’t that mean you’re going to inherit the earth?
mom: according to the Bible!
dad: yeah, well, there won’t be any of it left!
She was Dutch!
Of the small list of things that might’ve convinced me to stay in Boston permanently, Acadia National Park being a 5 hour drive away -aka a weekend trip - is number one; followed closely by Heroes at TT the Bears.
great hikes, of which we only got to do three (impressive for only having about 36 hours in the area)
Nova Scotia vibe.
Holly and Akshay were great travel and hiking companions.
some memories of the trip:
Polish owner of our cottage being one of the coolest guys I’ve ever met. We reminisced about Europe
Akshay recruiting Holly to gulliblize me
frustration and laughs during 20 Questions and Contact eg, ”Are you some type of onomatopoeia? Are you ‘CLOMP’?”
best muffins/ bagels ever at a small cafe in Ellsworth
me getting Limp Bizkit’s “Rollin” stuck in my head until I actually tripped, drew blood, and nearly continued “rollin” off some rocks.
the most perfect scene behind the Jordan Pond House of the valley between two mountains and a lake. Me deciding I want my fictional future wedding to take place there.
poppovers - rolls native to Maine, Im assuming - a cross between a biscuit and a rolle, great with jam!
Cadillac mountain head - beautiful views.
the ocean path trail from Sand Beach mostly consisting of us climbing over rocks along the shore until we found the Thunder Hole, a small cave which swells with water quickly and the waves crash to make a thundering sound - many a queef joke was made here. We also saw a double rainbow move across the sky with storm clouds. a beautiful sight.
Sand Beach at sunset and a game of frisbee.
more than 12 hours the first day spent exploring Acadia.
slept in til 8, headed to Schoodic Point and did a massive hike unintentionally because we had no trail information about it, Stopped in Bar Harbor to pick up food for the beach, back to Sand Beach where we thought we would get in, but the ice cold temperatures didn’t see me in beyond my knees unlike Akshay’s badass self.
I had my class propose a new piece of technology to invest in. They had to do five minute presentations.
One Italian guy presented his ‘hover skateboard’ based on the hoverboard featuring images from BTTF2
I smiled from ear to ear the entire time.
I’ve never had a suck-up before!
So once upon a time I designed a can koozie for Bomb the Music Industry because of what amounted to a bit of a miscommunication on whoever’s part, and then it turns out they don’t do merch, so, ultimately, I made what I’m gonna chalk up as a piece of Bomb the Music Industry fan art. This is exactly what Tumblr’s for, so here you go.
CLARIFICATION: People keep correcting me on my “they don’t do merch” comment. I meant they don’t do THIS merch. It’s a long story. Actually, it’s a very short story, but a very, very uninteresting one, so don’t worry about it.
last night i dreamt you called from costa rica…………………………………
I am about to buy $350 round trip flights to Costa Rica after Semana Santa.
1. fuck working at a school that doesn’t have ‘spring break’
2. fuck working in a country that doesn’t have semana santa.
3. fuck having no friends to go to shows with, and the only one that does come consistently leaves before the headliner comes on, leaving you drunk and alone to enjoy the show solo.
Lawrence Arms and the Copyrights killed it tonight.
#tipsy back at home “tryin” to lesson plan. hmm
Tommy and Joe make it to a full 50 podcasts. They discuss punk rock and make some dumb jokes. You know the deal. Proceedings get interrupted briefly by a child. And it’s not even Tommy this time. Featuring FYP, La Misma and The Law.
Meet the men who made 50 episodes of a punk rock podcast. Doctors hate them.
Yay! My favorite podcast is up to 50 episodes! I found it through Mitch Clem in early 2012 and have caught every podcast since. Love these dudes.
