On What a Pulitzer Prize Will Buy You in 2014

@LookUponMyWorks I fully expected to hate it. I considered quitting after 50 pages due to an extremely anxiety-inducing first 50 pages (I actually had nightmares & couldn't sleep; this says more about me than it does the novel). I ended up loving the middle, and I still don't know what I think of the end. In any case, I'm still thinking about it weeks later.

On Every Job I've Had: City Paper, Biking in Jorts, and The World's Largest Design Firm

@eemusings Have you successfully made the move into something corporate (lol high school fave band)? Any advice for me? It makes other people look at me crazily but I'm really ready to work for something less "cool" and something much more STABLE. Like with a boss and a job description and a 401k. Is this the dream now??

@alexbaca Oh you made it clear, but I have literally THE EXACT OPPOSITE OPINION. Why does anyone live out there in those small states?! The weather is trying to kill you, the traffic is horrible, everyone is SO MEAN, there are Dunkin Donuts instead of Starbucks, what the fuck. My colleagues are in Boston and whenever they come to this coast they're convinced they should move.

On For the Love of Books

@RachelG8489 Agreed, the best way to read. I love being surprised with books that I wanted to read months ago. Kindle library books are THE BEST THING. Even better, it is impossible to accrue late fees with them. I am an expert at accruing late fees!
