Such a good month for the eyes :)

FEAST FOR THE EYES>>

  • The Language instinct. Steven Pinker. Finally bought this book at Strand after having to return it to the Denver library. I left off kind of not wanting to read it so much, but now I’m re-interested again. It’s just a slow read though. I really liked this quote by linguist Ken Hale: “The loss of a language is part of the more general loss suffered by the world, the loss if diversity in all things.” Truth. 

OVER AND OVER AGAIN>>

  • Unbelievers” by Vampire Weekend. This is no joke people, definitely my song for the summer. I have played this song more than a lot of other songs I have put on this list. The whole album in fact. this might be in part because it’s one of two albums on my phone, but also because it’s amazing.
  • Get Lucky” by Daft Punk. I mean, yeah, of course.

COMPULSIONS>>

  • Making lists and writing. My go-to activity when overwhelmed. 
  • Reading article after article of design stuff.
  • Lot’s of hanging out with Katie & Igor. They’re good people.

COMPUNCTIONS>>

  • Spent so much money while Dina & Christy were here. 
  • Carnegie-Mellon is seriously scaring me with their lack of giving their students financial aid information.
  • Turned 24…good thing? Bad thing? Time will tell.

ENTHUSED>>

  • I already made this list on Friday, but yes: enjoying the rest of the summer, traveling, grad school on the horizon!
