I should add that if you do call me, please leave a message if I don't answer. I usually don't answer if I don't recognize the number, but if you leave a message, I can program you and return your call.
Crypto-ene, or whatever you're called these days, I just saw your message over on "the thread" about giving me a call. Please do. I'd love to hear from you and find out what's going on in your life. I wouldn't mind at all.
Oh wow. Sorry for neglecting this (presuming you're still checking your account.) I'm in the process of applying for a PhD position, which I've been semi-obsessed with for the last few weeks. I finished my undergraduate last year though, and am currently doing an MA - I've gradually moved over to literature and film.
How have you been? You were starting a new job I think, last time we spoke - are you still involved in this, doing other things? Seems a few older members, LoR, Inappropriate Behavior, etc, are all coming back about the same time. (:
I'm well. Those pictures were from two trips, Nepal I think I remember writing to you a little about at the time, Kilimanjaro was last summer. Being above the clouds is definitely one of the best things, but also just how alien an environment it is to what you commonly experience in the West. Stand behind a rock and there's basically 0 sound. Too used to the sound of cars on the periphery. And vivid dreams, of course.
I've been good. I was laid off of my job this past summer, so I've been in an extended time of quiet self-reflection. It sounds great, but I've found just about every possible distraction in my life to keep me from making substantial life changes... it's a mixed bag. You?
I'm guessing she didn't read it, but on the bright side, I doubt it anything could change her mind right now anyway. At least you're able to remind everyone else that she doesn't reflect on your worldview just because she claims the same affiliation.
Yes please do tell her.
Mmm about your last PM.
Heh. This is a classic example of me being presented with information.... wandering off to think about it and forgetting to come back.
I did find it, it was about justification correct? When I'm feeling better I would really enjoying responding to your PM. *nods*
A pity she's not doing it professionally - I was thinking I'd probably buy a CD of hers if it ever came out. I've heard a lot of amateur songwriting attempts that are terribly bland, so hers was refreshing. More adventurous musically, and in a coherent manner (unlike others that simply shoot off haphazardly and hope to hit the jackpot).
If you do manage to cajole her into it and a collection of songs is born, notify us!
