Anonymous asked: what are you listening to these days?
Nothing that’s new to me. Earlier today I was listening to the Softies. I’ve been listening to Jeremy Larson a lot lately (what else is new, right?). He also recently produced the Honey Trees’ latest album, so I bought that and have been enjoying it. And of course, lots of John Mayer and John Legend.
Now accepting recommendations for good dreampop, twee, orchestral stuff, and anything else you think I might dig!

This is what I wore to my job interview today. I fretted a lot about whether the dress was too informal, but then when I got there and saw what others were wearing, I felt very overdressed! Oh well, always better to be overdressed when you’re trying to impress a potential employer, so says internet guides on such things.
Last week Damian and I went shopping for job interview-y clothes and I picked up these flats for $15. They are basically made of cardboard and I will have to upgrade to black Dr. Marten Marie flats one of these days, but dayum they are cute and actually reasonably comfy.
I have been keeping careful documents of all the books I’ve read, new movies I’ve seen, plays I’ve attended, parties I’ve gone to, money I’ve made, and highlights of my year throughout 2014 so far. And I’m loving it. It is SO GREAT to be able to see all these things that I’ve accomplished, at a glance.
It’s also fantastic having little notes on all the new pieces of media I consumed, because so often it feels like I forget every book I read as soon as I’m done with it. Doing a short little “review” helps me process it and remember what I liked about it.
Anonymous asked: You realise that 'femme' is a lesbian identity, right? Are you a lesbian?
femme was actually coined as a term by a lesbian, written about a bisexual woman she was having an affair with.
that being said, i’m fucking queer and dyke is one of my identities and i’m femme. so yeah.
Things I have on my phone: an overabundance of photos of llamas (and I think the last one is a calf?). Last year my class was required to go to the Royal Winter Agricultural Fair and write a story, so I interviewed salespeople there and wrote a piece about how sales were way down… but mostly I was just interested in the llamas.
