A Nosh

Toasted everything bagel with whitefish salad AND lox and scallion cream cheese (don’t worry, not together, I’m not a monster) from Montague Bagels today! 


I was finally able to attend the Career Center orientation on Monday, and WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOEEEEEEEEEE! I have a lot to say about it. I needed to take the week to collect my thoughts because most of them were hurling through the air like Pop Pop snappers at a 10 year old’s roller skating birthday.


While I’m trying to put myself, and these hilarious colored “information packets” together, please enjoy a project that I’ve been working on for a while now.

For those of you that do not know, I have been reading aloud Jackie Chan’s autobiography, I am Jackie Chan: My Life in Action. I read them and record them completely cold (that means I have never read any of the book before I began to read). It makes it quite the challenge because the names are Chinese for the most part, and not in what we now call pinyinwhich I actually do know. There are also dozens of characters, mostly male, that I have to attempt to differentiate from the other characters. If I sound flustered at any point, it’s because I am truly trying to hang on for dear life during some of these recordings.


I started this project for my best friend because he buys books and then refuses to read them. Happily, now there is a little fan base surrounding it.

The zany thing about this book is that most of the chapters are about 3 pages on average. I’m on chapter 49 and that’s only the halfway mark.

Please enjoy, darlings: https://soundcloud.com/lacarter
