First Friday Back in NYC Links

Well I'm back. What do I do now? There's still this lingering flakiness juju in the air that I am trying to effing sage-smudge out of my general vicinity. More things have fallen through lately than my patience level can really cope with-- and yet, I'm remaining relatively calm. I feel like I end up having a lot of conversations with people about my standards. That I expect too much of people (only what I expect of myself, for the record) yada yada yada. While I think I've become softer in my existential angst towards the parts of the world that don't make any goddamn sense, I don't see myself being any less demanding anytime soon. 

It's weird to be here without a job and weird to constantly answer so many questions (How long are you here? Where are you living? What are your plans now?) with a big smile and an "Uhhhh.... that's a good question. I'm not sure about that yet." For the most part, though, I'm trying to stay positive and looking ahead. I think there's a lot to be excited about this Autumn.

- What if Olympics 2012 had been in NYC instead of London?
- Wait, the power of negative thinking??
- Six Reasons Your Move Abroad Might Not Work Out. I laughed.
- The world's most perfect man? Just. Might. Be.
- Owls are assholes. No... I love them. Go Rice.
- What if I lived here?
- Behind the scenes of the Chaplin musical and his famous bread roll ballet
- I can't wait for Season 2 of Homeland. Counting down the days.
- Everything Is Fiction from Keith Ridgway. So good.
- Speaking of writing, The Fall Book forecast looks gooooood! I want to read almost all of these. Junot Diaz short stories! NW from Zadie Smith! And The Twelve is out! Huzzah for Cronin.

- Speaking of Cronin, here he is reading from The Twelve. Have a great weekend!
