The Starbucks Experiment

Breaking the Silence

Well, that does it. Adithi posted a new post so now i have to too. there is something rather parallel about our situations. she felt guilty about not writing, didn't know how the time was going by so quickly etc. i feel just the same, guilty for not having kept up with something that i don't think anyone reads, and not really wanting to write because i feel like nothing's happening. that's the major difference i suppose, Adithi is in a brand new and far more stimulating environment. she could actually choose to have a social life, while i seem stuck in some approximation of high school. ie, occasionally i'll hang out with an old friend but i'm hardly out there partying and meeting new people.

it's not that i'm bored exactly (i know i've said this before). i enjoy my work at the gallery ten times more than i did three weeks ago. i used to feel like i never really knew what to do or didn't have enough to do, and now i don't know how i'll get it all done. but more importantly it's all really fantastic reading. the main reason i stopped blogging for so long was that i actually hate to leave the library.

and i love Starbucks too; i get along with everyone i work with, being there is just about getting the job done while having a good time. i feel like i haven't talked about sbux that much, despite the blog title, but i think that's because good news is no news.

i feel like i have to keep reminding myself that this is exactly what i wanted to do in this year between undergraduate and graduate life. i have fun part-time work with benefits, plus a great internship that lets me do research while looking great on my resume. i know i'm preparing myself well for the future i want, but that's a sort of quiet joy. i guess that's it. this is a v. quiet time in my life. hibernation.

i'll end with a joke:

Q. What is President Bush's position on Roe v. Wade?

A: He really doesn't care how people get out of New Orleans.

Fool, I read your blog!! I check it every day . . . along with Pink is the New Blog, Go Fug Yourself, and Toothpaste for Dinner. And I'm v. disappointed when you don't write, and predictably pleased when you do.

So I was especially happy to see this last post . . . which also may be due to the fact that its 7 pm on a Friday and I'm still in the lab, and it's raining. Boooo.

All right, let's find you an entertaining tidbit to make this comment worth the time it took you to read it . . .
ah, this shall do nicely: It's currently my wallpaper on ze iBook.
