twenty eight degrees in the shade of banana trees [Apr. 19th, 2004|10:48 pm]
Rachel ??? ???
Im doing just fine. I was going crazy because life was sorta redundant- and I was about to do something dangerous but then instead decided to read some Vonnegut and I calmed down again. I have a band now- A tattoo artist named ChengDu (haha- he lives in Chengdu that is so sad that the name is the same), Youyuanr, Yufan, Heather, and me. Had a practice on saturday night- with some other folks too, and it was bongos and howling till 4 AM. Rocked. Heather has a soundproofed practice room at her house for her real band- so its convenient.
I got ahead in Genetics and really enjoy studying it. I am behind on plant keying though...and awating the day of my death when I dont have enough specimens to give Steve- but by summer I will have more- its just that the last trip I took- most of the plants were already collected last year. Still good practice for me, but AGGRIVATING and makes me want to stay in bed for days. There is also a particular Asteraceae- plant number 2004-SS-36, that is kicking my ass over and over again. I gave up the logical methods with it and started flipping through 11 books of Asteraceae trying to find a picture of a plant that looks like it. Hell...the method worked for 2004-SS-30.
I gotta say though- the weather has been great- Ive been really active- and happy lately. Listening to lots of new music- but I need more. So whatever is rocking your world- let me know so I can get some too! Lately for me its been Blonde Redhead, Coltraine, Miho Hatori, and Tiger Trap.
