I would love to get a decent sleep one if these days. I would like to not spend hours tossing and turning and ruminating. I would like to be able to just close my eyes and fall right to sleep like my cat does. Lucky little monster.

I left the ALA group on LinkedIn. Most topics were usually from vendors with agendas, and any attempt to engage other librarians in conversation went nowhere. Other topics quickly became dominated by this one retired librarian with a massive hate-boner for Millennials and change in general.

Am I just generally unwelcome because I'm under 40? I mean, I can't do anything about my age or lack of experience. Should I just kill myself and get it over with so that more deserving Boomers can harvest my organs to prolong their obviously more superior lives? That's kind of the feeling I'm starting to get from the world.

I'm so tired of everything. I'm tired of the endless job hunt. I'm tired of endless rejections or silence. I'm tired of hearing old-farts spout off at the mouth about how horrible millennials are and how they lack everything that made the Baby Boomer generation "the best ever" (so great they tanked the economy twice in ten years and are working on a third time). I'm just....tired.

This is a blog post for genius

I have several entries that’s like 90% finished and I may or may not post sooner or later. But that’s for later. This is my current reading (English titles for natural reasons):

L by Erlend Loe. A man - named Erlend Loe - decides to organize an expedition to Polynesia to prove his theory that South American Indians went ice skating to Polynesia. Norwegian Erlend Loe write that kind of bizarre, humorous stories. Sure the “experts” with their “evidence” thinks the Polynesians came from Asia by boats. But Erlend was quite sure the Polynesians came from Southeast America on skates. Why should the experts facts be worth more than Erlend Loe's facts?

The man without qualities by Robert Musil. That’s a book for genius and that’s why I might not finish it, two thick vol. of genius writing is a little much. And it was reference to one of Musil’s description of Austria Hungary. He wrote it was a country for genius and it’s likely the reason it fell. I have read the book before, and I liked the book but maybe not as much as I pretended to like it.

Humm. In 1913 when The man without qualities takes place genius and experts were worshipped. In 1997 when L was written it was a joke that ordinary losers could come up with his/her own crazy, scientific theory, and dismiss the experts. Now twenty years later self proclaimed experts get their place in the limelight by coming up with their own theories. Vaccine cause autism and enemas cure autism (enemas also cure cancer). Climate change is a myth. Modern plant breeding is always dangerous. Sodium carbonate cures cancer (and possible autism ). And the eath is flat ... Of course I myself think I’m a genius and an expert for writing this and I deserve fame for writing this.

I also have Douglas Coupland's Polaroid from the dead by my bed. But that book doesn't fit my "theory".

Wow. Three rejection emails in one day. That's gotta be a new record.

You know, it's really hard to stay persistent at this point. I mean, what do these assholes even want from me at this point? Blood? A kidney? Do I need to hire an assassin to pick off a few people at the top to free up some space?

Cherany's Visit

I had the pleasure of meeting up with a good friend, Cherany, who I've known through LiveJournal for years. I didn't sleep too much the night before, I was too anxious and excited to finally meet in person! Cherany is a such a sweet person. Her colorful outfits and kind positive attitude will put a smile on your face.

I made sure I made it into the city early so I would have extra time to grab some goodies to welcome her first trip to New York. I was going crazy looking all over for the foam statue of liberty crown often seen on tourists. I finally asked a store worker for help who pointed above me. I'm 4'10 so my neck doesn't crank that high.:P I grabbed one and became lost looking for a good flower shop. Beautiful ladies deserve beautiful flowers and I wanted to make her first day in NYC extra special. I picked out a mixed bouquet over simple roses because she's so colorful. :D

Next I wasted a whole bunch of time trying to hail down a taxi because I was too lazy to walk. I finally just took the subway which brought me right to the restaurant we planned to meet at.

So I ended up late, which I really, really, realllyyy hate not only being in general but it's just plain rude on my part. :/
Afterwards we arrived to see the ballet titled Whipped Cream right on time. The tickets were twenty seven dollars and I assumed we'd be looking at little dots. We actually had great seats! We were high up but I could see the whole stage. I had a great time, it was such a fun and unique time - my first ballet! :)

Of course I had to check the gift shop! I bought the stickers with the art from the inspiration of the show. We both agreed the pink shirt was too kiddishsh so I also purchased a black shirt.

Times Square was our last stop but we were both tired. I was pretty down when we had to say our goodbyes.

Us trying to get some of Times Square in the background :P 

It was a ultra fun time and I hope she'll visit again soon!
