this year

this year, i've been lucky enough: to have met some of the sweetest kindest people who have become great friends, to have met someone whom i've fallen in love with and to my greatest delight has fallen in love with me, to have been able to be stupid drunk foolish and young, to have explored a beautiful city. and i have been lucky enough to have laughed more in this past year than i've laughed in a real long time. hawaii, i will miss you--but not enough for me to truly care. and seattle, i love you.

bad n' ruin

these are good things.


christmas, whatta piece of shit.
this year included: 3 whole presents from the parents (socks, a mug, and a sweater that i'm returning). a dramatic family moment in which my almond biscotti dough was thrown to the ground. now i'm going to go drink heavily at some shitty ex-hippies house.

Big Time has always been my favorite Tom Waits' concert series. Obviously.


just rewatched Pan's Labyrinth, so delicious.
read read read, sleep sleep sleep.

...I have some, but talking to certain someones allows me to realize that I can't rely on habits and anxieties. Instead, I must rely on productivity--even on a minor scale, I have to keep busy.
So, as a result: I will be industriously reading, sewing, drawing, cooking, and watching good film.

(lately: read Candide, watched Synecdoche, New York, baked thumbprint jam cookies)
