When someone tells me a raw diet may help “get rid of” my type 1 diabetes.  A girl I work with.  A “health coach.”  I JUST CAN’T.

And here we are

the-hurricane-k-reigns-here:

Decided to apply to grad programs in English and/or art history “in a noncommittal fashion” this fall.

Thought I was over this desire, but apparently not.

Hahjajahja oh god.
Send help.

My phd-possessing friends, words of advice or warning?

You’ve gotta do what you’re meant to do.  I think all the time, if only I were fit to be a doctor or an engineer… but no, singing-songwriting has chosen ME, not the other way around.  You will find your path and you will find a way to make it work.  I know *plenty* of English Ph.D. students who love their work and are doing just fine.  Have faith in your intuition!  All you have to do right now is begin.  The rest will fall into place.  I love this quote from “The Artist’s Way” (and have it tacked on my bulletin board): 

In my experience, the universe falls in line with worthy plans and, most especially, with festive and expansive ones.  Understand that the what must come before the how.  All too often, when people talk about creative work, they emphasize strategy. Neophytes are advised of Machiavellian devices they must employ to break into the field.  This is rubbish.

The folk community hierarchy were all pretty indifferent towards me and showed very little enthusiasm. They could tell I wasn’t from the North Carolina mountains, nor was I a very commercial singer, either. I just didn’t fit in.

blorft.

I know you’re going to have a hard time believing this but as it turns out, Tina Fey (yes, THE Tina Fey) knows me, and so intimately, in fact, that she has invented a word to describe what I am going through right now: “blorft”. This is a word Tina invented that means “completely overwhelmed but proceeding as if everything is fine and reacting to the stress with the torpor of a possum.”
