Taking a Break

Filed under: Uncategorized — galileehitchhiker @ 9:23 am

I’m going to be taking a break from blogging (and pretty much everything else) for the next 12 days. My first final is going to be this Monday and the last one is on the 15th. I’m pretty calm right now which is quite strange for me because I usually start panicking right before exams. I’m actually freaking out about not freaking out. Anyways, since I see that I’ve developed a small yet consistent readership, expect the next blog entry to be on the 15th. Take care until then! Au revoir, amants!

By the way, when I outline for my classes, I have this marathon of records and songs playing, back-to-back. One of the songs that makes a constant appearance on my playlist for studying is “This Year” by The Mountain Goats. It has the power of making a cold, lonely, dark, and concrete parking garage into a paradise. The flowing puddles after a rainy day into sacred rivers. And the doors of cars slamming off in the distance into the clapping of barefooted angels. “I am going to make it through this year if it kills me.” Ah, what a perfect chant for a 1L.

Currently listening to: Bob Dylan – Another Side of Bob Dylan



  1. Hey Omer-

    Cool blog. I love the Mountain Goats, I have seen them twice. I am listening to Blitzen Trapper right now to accompany me with my studies (

    I wanted to let you know I got the Books(!) poster. I love it. It’s hanging in my living room. Good luck with studying!

  2. Hey Alysa!

    Thank you so much. I greatly appreciate it. I love the Mountain Goats as well but have yet to see them live. I find myself listening to each song of theirs over and over since Darnielle’s songwriting ability is so amazing. I’ll check out Blitzen Trapper. Right now, as I’m studying, I’m listening to a lot of Tv on the Radio (my favorite band right now) and a lot of jazz.

    Ah, Lilya Brik! That’s a great place to put the poster.

    Anyways, good luck to you as well! Let’s just hope we make it out alive and with our brains intact!
