Monday Mix – Decemberists Edition

I’ve been really bummed out all weekend, y’all.  I miss NY.  I’d probably miss it less if I could, like, find a job?  This time last year, I was a college professor.  This time last year, Junot Diaz told me I had the greatest smile ever (swoon).  Now I’m…here.  Sigh.  On one hand, I hated living on such a crappy salary; it made living in NY a nightmare.  On the other hand, at least I had a job.  As a college professor.  [Long story short, I moved back to TX to get certified to teach high school, since living on aforementioned salary sucked.  But now I’m jobless.]


The Decemberists’ Radio City show was the last thing I did before leaving NY (literally, I left the next day).  So here’s a playlist that reminds me of Decemberists concerts, working at Starbucks after grad school, and that time I gave some dude—a total stranger—a ride to the GW bridge after a Toni Morrison book signing (we talked about how he’d played “16 Military Wives” for his friends, and they thought he was weird).

  1. The Legionnaire’s Lament
  2. 16 Military Wives
  3. The Wanting Comes In Waves/Repaid
  4. Song for Myla Goldberg
