blah blah reagan blah blah

Real notes I wrote in Economics class, yes.

I have a history of taking angry/sarcastic notes (seriously— my AP US History notes about Andrew Jackson were epic) so it should be unsurprising that I make angry drunken edits to professional documents.

Anyway, everything is terrible so I’ve basically just spent all my free time reading very specific analysis of Clayton Kershaw’s pitching this year and that’s working as well as anything I guess.

Some random dude on the street said he liked my sunglasses today and when I turned to say thank you (because I also like my ridiculous, brightly colored sunglasses) he told me to smile.

I did not thank him. I hope the look I gave him haunts his dreams.

This doesn’t work for me. From the minute I joined the study group I’ve been worried about how uptight I am, and how I’m no fun. And then I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to fit in here or hang with you guys, but you know what? Why don’t you ever ask yourselves whether you can hang with me? Why am I always the one that has to adapt? I’m sick of this crap! Enjoy your stupid dreamatorium!

All memory of the brilliance of the young Tenenbaums had been erased by two decades of betrayal, failure and disaster.

I have so many feelings about these two.

It’s the kind of day where I got home, realized I didn’t have any beer, and took it as a personal insult from the universe.

I didn’t watch the whole documentary. After a few episodes, it was too painful. I kept wanting to scream at Pam. It took me so long to do so many important things. It’s just hard to accept that I spent so many years being less happy than I could’ve been. Jim was five feet from my desk, and it took me four years to get to him. It’d be great if people saw this documentary and learned from my mistakes. Not that I’m a tragic person I’m really happy now. But…it would just— just make my heart soar if someone out there saw this and she said to herself, “Be strong. Trust yourself, love yourself. Conquer your fears. Just go after what you want. And act fast, because life just isn’t that long.”

This weekend marks the 200th anniversary of “The Star-Spangled Banner” — the poem written in 1814 that in 1931 became the United States’ official national anthem. 
On March 3, 1931, Congress sent its bill to make the song the official anthem to President Hoover. See The Times’ coverage of that here: National Hymn Bill Approved. Alas, The Times was not around to cover the War of 1812.
Above, that banner yet waves over Griffith Park in 1934.

Ooo // Karen O 

Don’t tell me that they’re all the same
'Cause even the sound of his name
Carries me over their reach
Back to some golden beach
Where only he remains

You planted your eyes on my feet
You told me to dig my heels deep
The night wore the rain
on her window pane
Drifted us to sleep
