Politics, pop culture, and self-deprecation

Alright, I suppose it’s about time that I do some updatin’. Life in Boston has been lovely recently, but I haven’t had much to say. It’s starting to turn into fall, about which I can’t decide if I’m happy or scared. I quit my job at the crappy cafe, although I am still waitress extraordinaire at Bella Luna. How could I give up those $2 beers?

The exciting thing is that I’m a bona fide freelancer. So what if right now I’m only getting typing assignments? Typing is exciting…or something. It’s my plan to pick up some copyediting assignments soon, so I’ve been spending a lot of my time perusing the Chicago Manual of Style (you know I’m a dork because I find it genuinely interesting), and talking to my compatriots at Beacon Press. They have been awesome to me there, and are teaching me many and varied important publishing things. It’s swell.

I’ve been watching lots of movies (I just watched Bull Durham for the million and twelfth time; it was great), and playing with my fancy new ‘puter, and burning CDs like a banshee on fire. Yeah. Anyway, my music collection is expanding exponentially. I’m a music thief!!! Mwah ha ha ha ha!

I have plans to revise the main and important parts of this website, and will have plenty of free time in the coming week to do so. So just you wait. It’ll be so exciting. You’ll pee your pants, that’s how exciting it’s going to be. Mmm hm.
