• i had passion fruit for the first time. it smelled fruity & floral & tropical. i ate it half with the coconut yogurt i made & gave the other half away.
  • i spent a few afternoons painting in watered-down colors without placing expectations on myself, on the turn-out, or anything at all. i played with colors & experimented with different techniques.
  • i made cashew cream cheese. it's delicious & tastes a lot like ricotta. i cut up some chives & a scallion & mixed it in there to give it some more flavor. it tastes really good with sourdough bread.
  • i recently ate a pizza that had vegan cheese, tomato sauce, red onion, black olives & fresh arugula. i can't stop dreaming about it.
  • i also made some lasagna that turned out really well.
  • i bought flowers & took lots of pictures ...

Feeling up & down... Work life is stressful & very unsatisfactory. I don't see how changing jobs will change much, since I feel like the problem isn't only within the usual misbehavior of most people but also my stubborn inability to confront others & anxiety that comes from the forced social situations having a job requires. It's almost like I'd be settling for a different set of problems. How I wish to make my living in a fulfilling way!

I have also had a strong urge to buy myself a few items (which of course comes at the most inopportune time, as per usual). Wishing for:

  • Basinger top & Shaylin dress, Reformation
  • Haloscope highlighter, Glossier
  • Cybele choker in pink, AYAI
  • A vintage Edwardian top (finished with vintage pearl buttons)
  • Sofia bodysuit in white, AA

I am so down atm & can't get myself feeling optimistic. Need to get out of here, need to have hope in myself. I am extremely excited to fly out to NYC next week. I don't know, I feel like that trip might change things for me. Maybe my outlook, maybe I'll get even more bitten by the traveling bug. Either way, I want to roam the streets & look at beautiful art & share picnics with my beloved.

Beautiful things/things I may want:

    • Carmen top, American Apparel
    • A bouquet of roses
    • The color red
    • The compact Too Faced Love Flush comes in!
    • ZIMMERMANN everything ♡

replacing my feelings with things. replacing my thoughts with wishes. i am up i am down. i cannot get my emotions straight. i am bored yet feel no motivation to do anything about it. i am easily disappointed, is that how everyone is? what a defeated way to be. i should actively try to replace my short-comings with positive actions. i should really truly try. update: trying to keep busy. still not much motivation other than the drive i feel to bake & knead bread.
