uggggh I was all set to go to the Paideia Institute’s Cocktail Party for Classicists, but I have to go to bloody King of Prussia PA for work the next day  

theoretically I could do both but it would involve taking the 9:10 to Philly and getting to King of Prussia at like midnight, which is not horrible but I am Delicate

how the fuck did a squirrel get in your cereal box?

campus was infested; I foolishly left my window open. 

to elaborate: i was taking a nap, as one does on a lovely spring afternoon when you’re avoiding your homework. The window was open to let the air in. Suspended between sleep and waking as you are at the end of a nap, I hear a scratching sound. at first I ignore it as part of a dream. it keeps going. i get up, set my feet on the floor, and then a huge gray squirrel explodes out of my box of honey nut cheerios. 

I’m still traumatized.

you’ve been to Russia? Holy shit! How, when, and what was it like???

2008, with the Princeton in Petersburg program (I took a year of Russian and was terrible). I can’t really tell you because I was hella depressed and rarely left my room except to go to school, but, like. Kind of how you’d expect? I went to the opera twice, which was nice; the Hérmitage was wonderful (and I think I went into parts that were closed, or at least there was no one else there); my two favorite memories are the display that just read “MEAT” and the corner store woman who didn’t believe that I didn’t have anything less than a 500-ruble bill and went into my wallet to prove it.

1. Are you named after someone? Okay, so, like, I am super not In Touch with my ~heritage~ but it is my understanding that you don’t name people after people but you do use the first letter of their first name, so like, my uncle Adam who died before I was born, I guess?

2. When was the last time you cried? Okay so I was listening to this Civil War song, We are Coming Uncle Abram, and…

18. If you were a crayon, what color would you be? Okay, so, one of my clearest memories is my dad getting me a 64-color Crayola set when we were camping on an island and I loved the color names and my favorite was Purple Mountains’ Majesty.
