*(Even though I wasn't, I studied environmental science in university before I switched to college.)
Listening to an 1996 interview with David Foster Wallace and wondering how many social medias I could mirror my thoughts about it on, and with what formatting changes. I'm thinking at least three, like:
@GoosesTwitterName Listening to DFW interview c.1996 & finishing laundry #newyearrrrr
Goose's Facebook Name listening to a David Foster Wallace interview, thinking about how who you're writing too affects what you can write but only as much as you need it too.
Tumblr Post @GooseTumblr: Listening to David Foster Wallace interview, a) I really like this dude, b) I should make actually finish-reading 'Infinite Jest' a thing to do this year???, c) We need better mental health discussion everywhere and also good mental health care everywhere but particularly, I'm thinking rn, for you US people
#also I'm wearing wine-red leggings and a stretchy soft white&black striped shirt that could be a dress if I really wanted it to #and didn't mind constantly tugging it #I AM V. CUTE #you'd think I dressed up but no it's just all my pyjamas are in the wash #1am Jan 2cnd PARTY TIME
I'd phrase it differently if I was just talking to my friends on Skype, too, which is kinda the most direct social media because instead of shout-outs to the void they're very specific shoutouts to people I know and love. "Tfw you listen to old DFW interviews and want to read 'Infinite Jest' for real and also, separately but not really separately, want to punch Chuck Palanhiuk right in the face."
I wonder why I think of certain white dude authors (DFW one notable person, JD of The Mountain Goats and 'Wolf In White Van' a second) as good people but other white dude authors (most notably rn Chuck Palanhiuk, and also the guy who originally wrote 'I Am Legend') as just terrible humans based on like, how they talk and how they write but nothing else. Also how JD sings, of course.
I don't have an answer, but if I was writing on my first semester's class-mandated Wordpress I could probably tie it all together with some idea about how words matter so balance your media well, or something.
It sounds shaky and is, after a point, but I don't care 'cause I got a pretty good mark on those assignments.
And in general, as it turned out! My last grade for first semester went up on the 22cnd of December or so. The highest GPA that you can get in my college is a 4.50, and this first semester I managed to wrangle a 4.04. Aside from the obvious error message joke it was a lot better than I expected I'd do (especially with my seasonal depress kicking in early this year for some unholy reason). In percentage terms, which I understand a bit better, my average was about 86%.
