typesetting & mike daisey

Typesetting takes time. a lot of time. Its the process of hand placing lead characters into a 'composing tray'. everything is upside down and backwards! what?!! crazy, i know. but i LOVE it. i really love it. its so soothing. one can jsut get lost for hours setting a project. letterpress is my friday class and its makes for some lovely friday afternoon relaxing.

brandon has decided not to leave until sunday. i bought tickets for us to go see the mike daisey show tomorrow at TBA. I am SO excited for his monologue.

and then... well and then brandon leaves. and im scared and nervous. and im hoping my friends keep my ass in check. thanks friends. for reminding me to breathe.
