15 Minutes

I’m giving myself 15 minutes to write this post, so I hope something good comes out, and if not, well…

Here are the biggest updates:

  1. I’m nearly done with my next Camino blog post, pinky swear! I’d say it’s been difficult to write, but that’s a lie. I just haven’t had enough spare time to finish it up.
  2. Re: the job interview last week, I don’t think that I got it. But I’m not heartbroken about it, either. The interview didn’t go as well as I’d liked, for a few reasons. Given that, I think that I’ll stay where I am for awhile and figure out a new plan of attack.
  3. Facebook is making my anxiety flare up again, so I might need to step back from there again soon. There’s just no “on/off” switch when it comes to me freaking out about the state of the world, and I don’t know if being an anxious wreck 24/7 is very useful (but I’d assume the answer there is “no”).
  4. Went to Austin last weekend and had a lovely time. Went to an Alamo Drafthouse, both locations of Vulcan Video, Parts & Labour (my favorite Austin store, which features artwork by my favorite artist, Tim Doyle), and ate tons of tacos. I bought a Tim Doyle print that I’d been looking for, to add to my collection. He has a series of works based on Wes Anderson movies, and I have two of them already (click here for poster art scenes from Rushmore and The Grand Budapest Hotel). This latest one is my second favorite of the entire series, a closeup of the suitcase from Darjeeling Limited.
  5. I’m trying not to be scared of the West Virginia-based Voldemort followers, North Korean nukes, whatever Russia has planned, or the fact that none of New Orleans’ water pumps seem to be working and we will definitely be underwater if a hurricane hits (I waded through knee-deep water a couple of weeks ago when the pumps failed during a heavy rain storm). But maybe they’ll all cancel each other out when the solar eclipse pops by next Monday, who knows?

      It was pretty lame where I was. It didn’t get much darker than looking through lightly tinted sunglasses. The temperature went down, though. I didn’t have special glasses, and I was too lazy to make a pinhole camera, so we just looked at the shadows and took photos of the sun with our cell phones without looking directly at the sun. The light was interesting, but nothing that special, honestly. I wish I’d traveled to a place where it was more evident.
