It’s been a long time since I’ve posted, but I’m planning on getting back on the studyblr game! Here’s a little update in case anyone is curious about what I’ve done in the past year:
-I started my doctoral program! I’m working towards my EdD.
-I bought a townhouse! 🏡
I hope you’re all staying safe,
trying to keep things organized 💭 i’ve been reading a lot i’ll post book recommendations soon!
“I must be off. Necessity drives me on.”
- Homer, The Odyssey
I finished The Odyssey this evening. I think I enjoyed the parts before he arrives back on Ithaca more. The relationship between the goddess Athena and Odysseus is fascinating.
I liked what the translator Robert Fagles said about Odysseus:
He is “the beggar-king who moves at will from self-effacement to self-assertion, from mê tis to mêtis, from Nobody to Odysseus.”
I wish I had more to say here since I have a lot in my journal, but those notes are mostly disjointed and I think I’m still a little overwhelmed. I’ll be starting Madeline Miller’s Circe probably on Sunday.

May 29th, 2020 | It’s that weird time of the year when I realize I can’t remember shit unless mindmapping it.
Listening to 503 from Hans Zimmer on repeat.
you know, there are some things about the studyblr community that can be critiqued, but at the end of the day i love it here. i love how deeply there’s a sense of humanity and desire for growth, it’s really inspiring. thank you for letting me be apart of this.
When you choose, as a listener, to focus on what’s buried deep in the layers of a recording instead of what’s been placed up front to catch your attention—then ‘you’ve’ changed what is signal, and what is noise.
But if the noise has been eliminated—as digital media can and so often do—then that choice is eliminated as well.
