I took this photo while sitting in my truck in the parking lot outside Cory's apartment. I could've gone in but I really wanted to finish the interview I was listening to on NPR with Mark Bauerlein, the author of The Dumbest Generation: How the Digital Age Stupefies Young Americans and Jeopardizes Our Future (Or, Don't Trust Anyone Under 30). Based on the interview, which really frustrated and angered me, I'd say this book sounds like little more than an aging man bitching about how his generation was so much better (smarter, more motivated, etc.) than the young punks these days. Jeez.
I am a teacher, grad student, writer, voracious reader, photographer, singer, feminist, and thriftstore fashionista. In no particular order.
I am Squirlaraptor. This name was originally created for my kitty to reflect her squirrel-like fur and her raptor attack skills and has recently been adopted by me to reflect my own curious nature and tendency to hoard as well as my (sometime) fierceness and my love of the hunt (at least, in terms of shopping and research--not so much in terms of killing and maiming, vegetarian that I am).
