Right now the purpose of this blog is to organize the stuff I want to over spring break, which is this week! That includes: drawing comix, watching Jackie Chan and Miyazaki movies, reading 1950’s scifi books/short stories, going to the Art Spiegelman exhibit in the Jewish Museum, searching for summer internships, and doing homework for college…
That’s a lot of stuff. If I include maybe running, walking in the park, going on a trip Wednesday, hanging out with family and boyf, that’s even more. Sometimes I get so excited about unscheduled free time with no looming deadlines that I schedule in everything I want to do, instead of scheduling what I’m likely to do.
I highly recommend “The Exquisite Corpse Project.” It has some good lines, especially at the end, and it’s really funny.
Sleepovers can be so intimate. You climb into bed only after being too tired to hang out anymore, after falling asleep on the floor or during a late-night movie or next to each other on the couch, or back from a party. But once both of you climb under the covers, under the dark, you start talking and talking in that magic hour where you forget that you were (two) separate people during the day. We lower our inhibitions while falling asleep in order to stay awake. We know that we must (immediately) pour out our thoughts from our stream of consciousness in a (constant,) breathy whisper. Or else we’d fall into sleep, and drown out the other in a sea of our dreams/of our musings. I highly recommend having a sleepover with a close friend.
I also recommend “The City and the Stars.”
I also recommend carrying a little sketchbook to doodle in and draw people if you feel like it.
