Burn Before Reading: A Carly Allen Story

Quote of the Day: 08.13.17

Today is the last day of my internship. Yay!!! I hope at least. I feel like I'm writing weird letters to my future self in my metaphorical lunch box like "Have a great day at school, sweetie" or "Make friends" or "Network with executives." I don't know. Let's just cross our fingers that I did something productive these past few days.

Today's quote comes from Mary Oliver's poem, The Summer Day. For someone that claims I don't like poetry, I sure quote it a lot.

I'm getting slightly delirious since it's now closer to 2 A.M. on the same night I wrote the last post about Glee and yes, I'm still watching Glee. They're singing Blow Me (One Last Kiss) and I'm into it. My phone's on 1% battery, but I'm trying to download it right now. Every Marley and Unique duet changes my life for the best.

One time, I tweeted that sometimes, in my darkest hours, I think the Glee version of a song is better than the original and I instantly lost two followers. (If you're not following me on Twitter, you're missing out.)

What else can I talk about besides Glee at 2 A.M.? I have no one here to ask because I now live alone. This is both a blessing and a curse. However, I live two blocks from a neon museum and across the street from an In-n-Out, so I'm going to say it's mostly a blessing.

That's all I've got today. I'm going to go to sleep because I am an adult who knows when it's time to stop watching Glee and go to bed. Albeit a couple hours late, but we got there in the end. See ya tomorrow in real time. No more blasts from the past.
