^ my essay-writing space, a certain table at the cowley g&d’s

essay-writing is a combination of a lot of fun and a lot of not fun. i love writing, but can still be a grueling process, having to pick the arguments that go together and phrase them exactly as brilliantly as they sound in my head (where they’re all muddled together in a ball of general-brilliant-idea yarn). so, to make essay-writing mornings something to look forward to, i go to g&d’s. something about the atmosphere and the familiarity makes it the most comfortable place for me to churn out a seemingly horrific first draft that i can turn into a polished essay with much less editing than i think.
