. . I've just officially accepted at Duke, where I'll be pursuing a PhD in English next year. It was one of the more difficult decisions I've had to make personally and professionally, but I feel good about it.

I need to start preparing myself for North Carolina. And: North Carolina needs to start preparing itself for us. The Trettien-Torres Duo Does Durham not a story I thought I'd find myself writing, or even a narrative whose potential existed until very recently. In my mind, it already has a very Dr. Caligari vibe.

I know nothing of Durham, but Chapel Hill/Carrboro is a lovely, lovely place. Your dreads will fit in on the lawn outside its fantastic food co-op.

Again, congrats!
