Right before I opened my laptop to write this post, I carried my plate into the kitchen to refill my water glass. Yeah. I looked over my shoulder when I got to the kitchen, and I saw my glass, the purpose for my trip, sitting there on the zebra-printed decorative trunk we use as a … More becoming stronger for the journey
If there’s anything that’s made me wary of shopping, it’s the realization that the purchase is—like the alcoholic’s first swig of bourbon—instantly gratifying, but—like the alcoholic’s subsequent hangover and reduced mental faculties—devastating in the long run. Once the itch to purchase has been scratched, we’re left feeling guilty and hollow until we seek another “high” … More Quote of the day…
I’m writing this post absurdly slowly, because I’m actually chatting with my brother about these exact topics at this very moment. I’m still struggling to motivate myself to update the blog regularly. This is apparent. I’ve discovered, though, that it isn’t actually about motivation. It’s about insecurity.

Moving forward, the plan is to schedule posts for Monday and Thursday mornings. In my defense, I’ve been job-interviewing like a demon. It’s not that I don’t like my current job. … More A late goals update.
Well, this week’s art that grabbed me was definitely, without question, the video collaboration between Salvador Dali and Walt Disney that I just found this week. Everyone who kept this from the world, and especially from me, go sit in the corner and think about your life choices. This shit is amazing. It goes without … More On Destino, fleeting romances, and creating change.
So! It’s been a few months! I can’t catch up in just one post. But I’m literally sitting in a workshop for computer coders who want to start blogging, right this moment. They’re all just starting their blogs, and I’m still in the midst of processing the last few days, and… well. There we are. … More Changes and oh so many feels
11:39 am I’ve already begun to regret my decision to liveblog this. I’ve dumped every item of clothing, literally every, except my winter gear which is already stored in a tidy fashion, onto my bed. My Pinterest inspired floor bed, which isn’t looking very pinteresty right now. As an added bonus, a lot of other … More The Great Closet Purge of 2016
