tfw someone calls you out of the blue and needs the serious therapy part of you and you're not prepared. That was two very intense hours on the phone and I am fine and the other person is fine, but yeah. If you know you know, I guess.

It's always so joyful when I can reference my favourite memes seriously in my academic papers. I feel like I'm getting away with something, but It's Good And Important, Actually.

Would someone like to give me a medal for not snapchatting my ex back when he was hinting at flirtation and instead putting my thoughts into my Poetry Thoughts document?

Cause yikes. It's been a month and I still feel like I'm responding to him out of muscle memory at this point.

fell asleep at 7 am because I had a Very Good Scenario going in the dreamworld I go to escape my life, thus I am tired today.

the absolute hubris in putting all 3 of my duvet covers in the wash at the same time and praying one of them is dry before I go to sleep.

I have tried to let good men love me kind.
I wonder sometimes
if I entered them like a fungi.
My heartbeat in their stomach, pulsing in the night
if some of my bad blood
travelled their system
like rot. I tried to make beds out of them
where I could rest
but I only made mulch. And I myself
am not really woman
but something belonging to the dark soil.

me: I'll do a subtle drag king look, that will be good practice on shadows...

also me: *ADDS DEEP RED EYESHADOW*

Someone validate my soft chin so I stop second guessing cutting my hair very short tomorrow because I am not a sharp jaw gay

Single again, it was the right decision and I'm fine, but...it sucks ya know.

Trying to get my database work done before The Weekend Start is kinda a lost cause, but I'm hoping to be done before 9
