I stop everything I’m doing and ask myself why I’m not going to spend the rest of my life with music, and I worry and become anxious about not pursuing music as a major; then I console myself, thinking that just as music has been part of my life since 3rd grade, it will continue to be part of me. Even after Vassar, I’ll keep singing.
Into myself, I fall.
I just received
my copy of The Three-Text Hamlet, an out-of-print book that juxtaposes the text of Q1, Q2, and F1 Hamlets, line by line, with original spellings and stage directions.

Music has the power to make the beloved feel lonely, and the lonely feel loved.

Kanye: Yo, Kanye Im really happy for you and Imma let you finish, but Kanye had one of the best celebrity gaffes of ALL TIME!
I dreamt that I was handcuffed—to myself—and the handcuffs wouldn’t come off, until I squeezed out of them, but then I realized I had awoken—handcuffs still binding me—and didn’t feel the need to flee anymore.
The earth engraved on my hands, an irreplaceable map as difficult to follow as it is to lose.
