[all you need to do is write five things • it can be people's names, places, emotions, film titles, song titles, bands, anything that sums up your day • do this each day on your listography • copy and paste this so others know what this list is about]

  • 30 Sat → writing my way out usually helps me out • "your mom and brother wouldn't go out and just buy a car, would they?" of course not; they'd ask before buying, dad • an overdue listening/jam session to David Archuleta's EP (released back in August) • told dad about recent events, because something like that shouldn't damage my well-being • drive for Lou Malnati's pizza to celebrate bro's new car~
  • 29 Fri → whenever Ma gets worried, I get worried (but see, it's not necessarily the other way around) • Tio, fixing the car: "you're gonna go for a drive, mamita" I DON'T HAVE A LICENSE • I hate mentioning non-PoGO mobage in my "five things" list, but I just had the absolute luckiest Enstars and LLSIF pulls and I didn't want to leave the house because I legit thought I'd get struck by a car • quick PoGO walk to and through the loop • Italian beef; the black pepper is what makes it a stellar sandwich

  • 26 Tue → the tamales were way too spicy for my taste pallet • obviously I have a problem if it takes me 5 months to make a phone call; on the bright side, I can't complain about a 1.5 month wait • southernmost point: Buckingham Fountain; northernmost point: Chicago brown line station • walked down Randolph far enough en route to the lakeshore, and I finally stumbled upon that park I've been meaning to visit! • why do males approach female pedestrians more often than females approach male pedestrians? why patriarchy, why?
  • 25 Mon → I know I shouldn't feel discouraged for not earning an event reward I wasn't even shooting for, but here I am • felt the strong urge to crack open the ol' coloring book • highkey self conscious of audio recording my own voice; props to people who actually put themselves out there • treadmill pros: I wasn't sitting all day • it's been 56 months~

"I just needed a good mood and a good cup of coffee" I said to myself, for the past 10 days • although I'm 2.5 generations removed, it's hurting to be a child of Mexican /and/ Puerto Rican heritage; I can't fathom my experience if I was dealt a different fate (I shudder because it's like, if my relatives made different decisions, I could've been one of those people) • feeling devastated
