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