Thank you, New Years Card, for being the fallback position from the onslaught of the end of a fall semester. You give me a way of sending good wishes to beloved family and friends while only looking moderately like a holiday lump.

Me constantly: *Hears about a researcher tangentially related to my interests*

*Instantly orders a used copy of their book*

Two hours later: *Remembers I pay Scribd money every month so I will stop doing that*

“You’d think I’d learn.”
