this has gotta be a quick one because it's finals week and i'm a busy kid. but over the past week and a half after i drove to sacramento for my brother's wedding i have become obsessed with This American Life. if you haven't heard of it it's brought to you by pri, public radio international, and based in chicago (station wbze, i believe. they say it every program and i've been listening to A LOT lately.) i think you can listen to it on npr, although i wouldn't know because i don't listen to the radio or know what station npr is. for some reason i feel like it's on satellite radio but i'm also sure that it isn't, but rather it's on some elusive radio station i have no idea how to access. 

i'm writing this because i reallllllllly want to finish listening to my episode that i'm on right now. or any episode really. but i can't because i have mass work to do for finals. so instead of listening to this american life i'm telling you how much i want to listen to it. some of my favorite ones that are just captivating and fascinating are #76- mob, #65-who's canadian? and #86- how to take money from strangers

they're just so good. if you've never listened to it go to their website NOW!! and listen to one! it's free to stream! and you can download the weekly one for free, which i have of course been doing. i also hesitate to keep listening because i really like to listen to them as i get ready in the morning and as i walk to school. i don't want to run out!

this is the host, ira glass. he needs to be in your life. 

in all its glory. this american life. and if its really a show it absolutely needs to be in my life. 

ALSO! i got a .55 raise at work today instead of the usual .20! lots of happiness.
