======================= β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” [23.12-20] The sun began setting later about one week ago, though tomorrow is the shortest overall day of the year. It is interesting that as we turn back towards the sun, it takes so much longer for things to warm back up than it took to kill them off. Maddie says I should NOT go on a date with a TikTok/IG influencer whose videos I have seen and thought, "this person might be extremely toxic." But we DID match and she does seem halfway decent. Tough call (I'm going to cancel the date). β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” [23.12-09] really struggled the last two days with brain stuff. the weather was nice today but that freaks me out too. Decided to do what I could and arbitrarily release a third solo EP. now I can finally stop singing "like that." β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” [23.12-04] at the cafe I dreamt about before moving here. Christian, the friendly proprietor, is talking with Kelsey about Nick Drake and Daniel Johnston. one time Kelsey asked me about my favorite books, which was a hard question to answer. I offered up a few and she said, "so do you like any books written by women?" Eamon's been sober for three months now. Xtian's been teetotaling this past week as well. I'm jealous – my stomach is jealous. This can't continue. Three-borough day: Marlton, Maestro @ Angelika (lost my awesome umbrella) May's birthday on the UWS; Izzy's birthday + karaoke @ Sundown. Kelsey just asked Christian, "have you done the crossword?" and I feel that I should do it. β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” [23.12-03] I cannot believe it's already December. There's always too many emails to answer, too many texts to respond to or inflict upon others. I feel as though New York is a race between my sanity and my career. I admire Katy's ability to choose a person and allow them to grant her stability and serenity. I have done a whole set of wonderful and lovely things this year and am proud of myself. If ever you'd like to make a change this city is big and open to you, all you have to do is step out the door. Though today it's raining. (Serendipity: listening to "Here's That Rainy Day" perf. by Rickie Lee Jones) β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” [23.07-18] went on a date with someone who was, quite clearly, still reeling from an emotionally devastating breakup but who wound up taking that out on me in the most banal, passive, yet cruel way possible. i hope she finds peace. i have been reading and watching movies not going to parties, writing in my journal, going on dates, etc. the air outside is poisonous and leaden with moisture and we're all exhausted at the end of each day, whether we spent it swimming thru the environment or sheltering indoors. β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” [23.01-21] i and several of my best friends got to have a hands-on experience with the archive of Arthur Russell thanks to the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts. one week later, i return with Alberto and we get to listen to session tapes. we hear unreleased songs, alternate versions, overdubs, etc. there is a song about a slug. there is a song about not being sad. β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” [22.04-28] W*ll B*tler's wife (name of J*lie) tried to hook me up w/ her friend until she asked me my age. but she then affirmed my suspicion that ppl like me move to NYC mainly so their mid-twenties last 10 years β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” [22.04-27] Chr*s Sm*lls, B*zos' public enemy #1, pulls me aside for a hug at Baby's All Right and we go to the urinals together. He gives me his number and I invite him to the fundraiser. β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” =======================
