The sudden infusion of well-earned slush funds into my veins, your friendly neighborhood blogger now has the peace of mind to focus on writing to ya'll -- as opposed to working hard for the daily dime. Yet again, in my absenteeism there appears to have been a virtual cornucopia of topics abounding throughout the blogosphere, some of which just demand my attention.
Before we get to that however, please allow me to summarize recent events...
I work as an office administrator at a popular, and prominent tour company here in San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf. My job was one of necessity as the summer months are not supported by my college's financial aid, and so I consequently have been working 10+ hour shifts (for decent pay though) dealing with all manner of tourists, sightseers, and random passersby. This hectic work schedule in combination with a 3-hour round-trip commute made my workdays one HELL of a long day.
In tandem I have been doing heavy revisions on my book, as well as working with a collaborator to finish the artwork I have commissioned for the collection. (Expect a post with previews in the near future!) Also, I've still been promoting and hosting the weekly open-mic I've been running -- now #2 in The City!
And on top of all that, I moved The Girlfriend to our new apartment, building: a bed, a coffee table, a TV stand, a chest of drawers, fixing faucets, shower-heads, cleaning air ducts, sliding doors, communicating with landlords, leasing agencies, cable-companies, power-companies, handy-men, and all while trying to enjoy a little TLC time with my lady... if you know what I mean!
So... yeah, it's been a crazy-busy summer, and I can't believe I'm actually relieved to get back to the daily grind of the college semester (my last one, lawd please!) where at least my schedule is as predictable as it is filled.
Nonetheless, expect my posting to resume its semi-usual frequency. Here's what I've been reading and what I'll be talking about in the near-future:
1. The open-mic I've been running for a year+ now
2. semi-anti-Semitic reactionary conservative ish
3. Shout-outs & Rationalization Hamsters
4. Masculism et cetera
5. Underrated and undernoticed music
Until then, I hope ya'll enjoy the links, and keep checking back for more betterness a la Saboteur Academics the world over.
