are not so bad when you can walk to your friends' houses.

So Caleb and I are setting up this show. It's on March 4th.
Here & Now: Ephemera is a multidisciplinary collection of unconventional writers, visual artists, and performers seeking to create an ephemeral artistic experience in reaction to the hyper-documentation of modern social life.
Five writers will read new pieces from type-written pages with no additional hard or soft copies. Other acts will include burlesque, visual art, and a lecture on ephemera by a physicist (performers' credentials range from The Slutcracker to Harvard, if you care). Once the performances are complete, the writers' pieces will be ritualistically burned along with all materials from the other acts.
No cameras, recording devices, or other forms of documentation will be allowed in the space.
By the end of the night, the artists will render a timely manifestation of the phrase, “One night only.”

After a mostly-positive December that almost drove me insane from business, I flew home to Indiana for a week of sitting around, eating, and drinking Champagne.
On Christmas day we did the traditional Italian seven course dinner. I learned to make braciole and proper lasagna from Grandma:
This is a life skill that will surely come in handy.
My bro and I were dago-ing out.
It's good to get back to my routine though, and I wound up missing home (Boston, that is) quite a bit. It's crazy how much I really do love my life here. Plenty of people dread getting back to their "real life." I need it to feel like myself.
I do need to take better care of myself, though. I literally ran myself to exhaustion toward the end of last year. I loved almost everything I was doing, but I started having panic attacks (a new experience for me) and major anxiety. If I believed in New Year's Resolutions, that would be mine.
My new living situation helps. My roomie (who I can't name because he's all businessy and fancypants, so I'ma call him Dr. Manhattan) actually gets me to relax sometimes and watch movies(!). Yoga helps, too. Maybe I don't need to work from the second I wake up to the second I go to bed.
Also, my brother got me a ukulele for Christmas! I played it at a show in Portland ME last night. Check it:
