I just caught this on Showtime, just seeing the scene where Emily is doing Dorm Crew, being paid to clean other students’ rooms. I just couldn’t stop watching. It was compelling enough to watch her play on Harvard’s team, but it actually goes on to her playing professionally in Germany, and growing as a person (she also happens to be gay). Just her dedication to basketball is so incredible. I need to find something that I am pulled towards like that.
This makes me feel silly for wanting to write about my day today, where I went to a wolf preserve, horseback riding, bought small world chai and bent spoon cupcakes, and some CDs from the Princeton Record Exchange. I do, however,treat many situations, and life itself, alarmingly flippantly.
