Whenever I eat ice cream I feel like a man dying of thirst that finds a septic puddle of water. I know I’m going to be sick as hell later, but I’m going to die if I don’t have this.
Essay writing marathon statistics:
Fourty mostly-consecutive hours of writing and research
Nineteen pages written
Nine cups of maté cocido downed
Eight days and counting of having the flu

One entire box of tissues used
Entirely too much time spent trying to wrap my head around Postmodernism.
