I read Brave New World, it didn't freak me out.
I read Catch-22, it was good.
I'm reading A Farewell to Arms, it is creative nonfiction, srsly.
I'm going to a prom on Friday which is weird because a) I was homeschooled b) I'm in college and c) I have no idea how one proms. Prom. Is that short for promenade? I don't know how to promenade, it freaks me out. I don't know how to dance either, which is even worse (I've been led to believe that dancing is central to promenading? Is that true? (If you've been to a promenade, please tell me how one acts at such an event)

This is an interim post, because my job won't start until June but I want to get into the habit of weekly blogging so that I make time for it when I don't have time.


  1. You're going to have to tell me all about this prom experience. Whatever you do, promise me you won't take really awkward prom photos. Also, you'll basically be the coolest guy there ;)
    Farewell to Arms is great. When I saw that quote on your facebook I was like "yuss"

  2. I think my favorite thing about Brave New World was how it didn't freak me out.

    This may or may not make you feel better, but my sister is going to prom and I am freaked out on her behalf. I have also heard that dancing is somewhat central, but at least that's fun. The rest, I am skeptical. So you should definitely report back with your experience.
