I woke up in a closet.


The last thing I want to do is listen to you sing along to your ipod.

I do this thing everyday where I work for about 9-10 hours — and yeah, it’s work, so of course it’s not always the most invigorating way to spend my day — then I ride the subway home before I get to walk fifteen minutes from the station to my apartment. I don’t mind public transportation because I have no other choice but to use it, however there are some days when the public I share rapid transit with make me want to pack up and leave those god forsaken tunnels of filth forever.

I’ve complained about the G train before, but that had to do with the range of smells to be disturbed by while riding it. Here I have a short list of the awful awful sounds that make me grind my teeth into nothing.

1. The sound of someone singing along to their iPod.

2. An already low-fi recording of New York State of Mind blasting out of someone’s pay-as-you-go cell phone. Clearly no one wants to listen to this song on Wednesday at 7:30pm when they’re on their way home from their dead-end job.

3. Children screaming “mommy, no” when their mother deprives them of snacks.

4. Gum snapping/lip smacking/crinkling bags — anything food related goes in this category.

 



Now I’m in the future.

I started this blog when I was a student. I was mostly still afraid of the future and felt like there was a good buffer between my thoughts and how they might be applied to the real world. I wasn’t part of the real world because I was still a student and anything I had to think was influenced by whatever peer pressure I felt from my friends and whatever my favorite professors were saying.

Well, months and years late, I am here and no longer a student. I graduated and wrote a small book of poetry. I wrote a useless introduction for the collection of poems, then I got a job at a restaurant in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn as an Office Manager.

I aspire to become a cat.
