probably won’t have much new stuff up this week- i’m staying with the kids i nanny while their parents are out of town. every night so far we’ve just climbed trees to have aerial nerf gun battles then built a fort in the basement where i play and we sing beat happening’s “godsend” together before bedtime it’s the sweetest thing ever to me these children are angels i love them
also love being in a house with a stocked pantry/ fridge i had nearly forgotten that food other than ramen existed. they even have a pool god is good i wanna spend all summer here
wish i had liked math in school cause i’m so hooked now. some book about the munchhausen trilemma and logic got me fixated again now they just make me feel very alive. approaching complex ideas w/ logical progression & finding explanations woven into concepts i thought unexplainable calms me. also cause the books pose challenges for me that require hefty mental exertion but reward it the moment it comes together and you feel wonderment/ acute awareness of the universality of the language
there was one i read recently called “mathematics: modeling our world course 1” and the application based setup really resonated w me- it gave you a problem to focus on but approach from all directions via different mathematical tools- it implemented a new kind of self critical approximation of quantitative reasoning within me i hadn’t evaluated in mathematical terms before. math is so useful for evaluating social tradeoffs and everyday conflict resolution. it’s neat
also “e: the story of a number” had me so fucked up e is riveting i need more books about it
No joke your work and how committed you are to it and improving it is so inspiring to me. I was feeling so lost about coming out of school and not knowing how to go about it and seeing how committed you are and confident it just helps me a lot.
happened to see this comment on my phone by accident and now it’s making me want to cry kinda.. like wow. i wish i could articulate how much this means to me.
What kind of equipment do you use for digital art? Like what tablets and stuff?@Anonymous
it’s odd to me that i get asked this question so often? i’ve never made digital art in my life i don’t have the first idea about that space..i don’t even know how to work photoshop i am your mom on a computer
my stuff is all ink, markers, magazine clippings, and cardstock. i can’t afford a tablet rn and because i get most of my work done on the bus/ at work/ where ever i can i don’t think it’d be ideal for me, i need supplies that are completely portable. but uh, there are lots of digital artists on tumblr i’m sure have resources for you. sorry!
me @ parties: yeah molly’s cool i guess but you know vinegar? has like a million and a half common household applications to fight grime and stubborn set in stains it’s a godsend for the germaphobe on a budget. you ever clean the inside of a microwave with nothing but a lemon and some mcdonalds napkins? spiritually enlightening experience most definitely better than the time you did peyote in the desert w/ your cousin
like a lot of my anxiety manifests in a desire to keep my surroundings sterile. so many times i’ve needed to make an important phone call only to clean my kitchen instead and afterwards feel like i accomplished what i set out to do even though i didn’t at all. i think i make an unconscious deduction that that the tidiness of my space supplements the messiness of my life or something
