I am confident that I lack confidence
I’ve been sleeping in a sleeping bag on top of a folded cardboard box for like 2 months now. I don’t even remember why I started doing that

Usually when I’m in the lounge practicing my music I get people harassing me in some way but some girl came in and told me my playing was really nice but I think I weirded her out cause all I did was nap today so my hair was all matted and I got all tense cause I thought it was gonna be some drunken kid come to tell me I’m a little bitch and she was probably expecting someone who wasn’t a skinny little four eyed jerk and idk I hate college/interacting with people
“There are professional thrills and there are professional thrills, but I am extra especially thrilled to report that FSG is going to be publishing John Darnielle’s novel, Wolf in White Van, this fall. John is famous for his work with the Mountain Goats, and I suspect that none of the many fans who know his lyrics and have heard his stories will be surprised by the revelation that his is a genuinely literary mind. And it’s true—Wolf in White Van emphatically proves that his imagination and voice are at least as at home on the page as they are in song.
There are many things worth singling out for praise in Wolf in White Van:the unforgettable main character, Sean Phillips, who has been isolated by a disfiguring injury since age seventeen; Trace Italian, the intricate game within the novel that Sean created and runs; the interplay of real and imagined worlds, which is both complex and heartbreaking; the structure of the storytelling—audacious, brilliant, and never anything but convincing and unreasonably suspenseful; the prose itself, which is precise and beautiful and (forgive me) lyrical.”
