sea lion progression

the mouse pad of my laptop broke and for a day i was forced to listed to the only think i could get to with a miraculous combination of arrows and enters. ani difranco. don’t get me wrong i love ani difranco but the love is more sentimental than anything. i listened to her a lot when i was a kid and she’s just not appropriate for this time in my life. she fills me with angst, which i think is visible in this first layer…
