    when I was a senior in undergrad I was in a Facebook group called “I’m Dating My Honors Thesis.” well, that thesis and I had a lovely romance and we’re still on excellent terms. we keep in touch.

    now I’m dating my dissertation prospectus. that’s really not even the right word for it. we hang out sometimes and it’s SO GREAT. like Monday night I brought my prospectus tacos and we lay on the couch giggling about inside jokes. but then most of the time it’s just frustrating, like will we ever get a moment alone together where I don’t have to respond to a thousand emails or do any household tasks? which is to say, it’s Wednesday and it’s 2:30 PM and I am going to take my prospectus out for a beer and maybe a sandwich because we gotta get this thing going somehow.

    I pride myself on my rejection of certainties, but that also leaves me open to so much. everything shakes me. everything has the potential to change everything… maybe all the boundaries would shift and I wouldn’t stop that from happening. I am a house of leaves moments before the wind.

    I heard a rumor that I was amazing. I tell myself everything I hear about myself.

    What does it mean when your lucky cigarette breaks?

    also what does it mean when you hand yr friend yr pack to bum from and they smoke yr lucky and you don’t realize it until the next day and what if they didn’t make a wish?

    luckies are important.
