free time

Now that I am graduated and unemployed I have a lot of time to think about things that maybe do not deserve too much thought. I have already contemplated writing essays on female community in "Practical Magic," and the sincerity at work in blogs like Sexy People.

I would really like to choose a home and settle in so that I can discuss these things with friends instead of with a non-existent internet audience.


even if she had the time, to save her moments
in words, the way she kept buttons in a box,
and was assured of the support to write them all down.

thanks for this

Short film by George Wu, inspired by Kazuo Ishiguro's Nocturnes.


I want to sit in sunny rooms and read about books all the time.

"at your earliest convenience"

these shoes are in love. these shoes are busted.

since i am trying to find a job and since that job will probably require toning down my outward appearance i have been thinking i should try to appreciate and utilize my freedom here a bit more. i am not sure if wearing a flowered housecoat outdoors is too much. it has snaps instead of buttons. it has really great sleeves.

who am i kidding?

is this how it ends
with a whimper in the place of a bang


i have a horrible memory for album titles and song names (and geography, history, facts in general). i would have made such a horrible 80s sweetheart.
easily impressed, though.

real things

how do you go about making someone a friend who talks to you about real things?
maybe i already have as many real things friends as i'm supposed to have
but circling around real things is hard, too.
someone has to just start?
