A Quick Word

"In order to go on living one must try to escape the death involved in perfectionism." -Hannah Arendt (1906-1975)

There's nothing common about that.

I like the fact that certain songs make even the most banal parts of life seem vibrant, epic, and more alive. (Especially when they make things epic--I tend to appreciate a song that can turn brushing my teeth into a sweeping space opera or driving to Walmart into a high-stakes car chase from The Italian Job.)

As is the case now, when I'm sitting here trying to finish a take-home exam that, if I can complete before going to bed, will mean that I can go home tomorrow afternoon rather than Friday.

Thus is my life.
