“And yet I know very few adult males who consider themselves serious ‘music guys’ who don’t laugh when I say I like Mariah Carey. Why? Because she’s beautiful and people like her. Therefore she must be selling sex, right? So obviously her music is terrible, right? Ugh. The first time I heard Mariah Carey it shattered the fabric of my existence and I started Grimes.”

tripwithoutanend asked: Don't worry - I couldn't care less what you think. I can tell you from experience that is much easier to exit your comfort zone and try new things if you have some level of physical fitness and aren't in pain from sunburn. But if it makes you feel better to assume I am on some "sad, pale, skinny trips" go for it.
glad you don’t care then

I like the sentiment of this post - except that it violates the number one rule for successful singular travel as a woman over the age of 30 which is wear sunscreen and don’t get fat.”
I feel sorry for you…well actually not really. Enjoy your sad, skinny, pale trips.

“The best argument for verse memorization may be that it provides us with knowledge of a qualitatively and physiologically different variety: you take the poem inside you, into your brain chemistry if not your blood, and you know it at a deeper, bodily level than if you simply read it off a screen. Robson puts the point succinctly: “If we do not learn by heart, the heart does not feel the rhythms of poetry as echoes or variations of its own insistent beat.”
