just applied perfect winged eyeliner on a moving megabus. i think i could actually feel myself leveling up.
i’m wearing modified victory rolls in my hair right now and i think this is a style i’ll be sticking with for a while (｡♥‿♥｡)
my grandparents gave me a milk foamer for chanukah and i think that is honestly the most perfect gift they could’ve gotten me
cause i live a life of getting ridiculously focused on one somewhat offbeat hobby or activity or style for like a really intense period of a couple of weeks, forgetting about it, and coming back to it months or years later
so allow me to be fixated on making foamy coffees and cocktails for like a solid 15 days, and maybe 15 days more sometime in february
~*~*~foods 2 eat that are helping 2 make my skin really soft and nice and clear (in conjunction with a clarisonic twice daily)~*~*~
- sweet potatoes
- green tea
- salmon (i hear oily fishies like mackerel are also great but that’s hella expensive and stupidly hard to find anywhere that’s not an asian grocery store)
- blackberries (berries in general are a good plan)
- pumpkin seeds
- raw garlic (yes i’m serious and also no vampires will getcha)
- eggs (the yolk especially)
- less dairy, less bread/cakes/crackers/white flour stuff, less red meat, if you’re gonna eat meat try to make organic
i have more foods and stuff on this giant list i’ve compiled from a ton of research for the past year (seriously) but this is the stuff i’m currently trying and i can say that this plan is working super super well right now (for me anyway and my skin is awful cause it’s always breaking out a little/stupidly dry and red in spots but also oily?? yay combination skin hah no)
but i also really have to stress the use of a clarisonic with all this stuff cause honestly that’s probably making the most noticeable difference, the foods are just really helping in conjunction with making breakouts less frequent and making texture soft!
i s2g i get 8 billion times more nervous asking a girl acquaintance to hang out with me in the hopes of becoming better friends than i ever used to get straight-up flirting with guys
sort of back
on a lab computer, mine is still supposedly getting fixed…they said i’d have it back within 3-5 days, today is day 5 and i haven’t heard a thing from apple.
neat. not like i have actual assignments and super important registrar stuff to sort out and jobs i have to apply to with files that are on my hard drive. nope, not at all like that.
so, my computer is staying at the apple store for the next couple of days
when misinterpreting a recipe gives you too many lemons, make fresh-squeezed homemade lemonade
i met this woman tonight on boylston street who looked around 60 years old and told me she just moved to boston from denver, colorado on a whim because she felt “spiritually inclined”
she asked me for directions to fenway cause she heard they were giving out free hotdogs
so i ended up walking all the way down from the common to hynes convention center with her, as she asked me a ton of questions about the publishing industry and my own writing aspirations and if i believe in fate or chance or destiny
and then she she shared stories about her cooking adventures and travels across continents and approved of my plans to make a shepherd’s pie tomorrow and said she thought i had an awesome mother when i told her my mom bought me a ’60s housewife cookbook
so once i ended up at the grocery store, (cause i decided to go there tonight instead of tomorrow cause i was now in the area) we went our separate ways, but before that she told me that i was “so exceptionally friendly, knowledgable and well-spoken” for my age, asked for my name so she could look up my writings, and then said that she “just knew” that i was going to make it as a writer
and now i’m home and i’ve got a pretzel roll and a cold glass of apple cider and i’m happy i ended up taking that long walk instead of just pointing her in the direction of fenway and going back to my apartment to do nothing but netflix
the lab has been literally empty except for me for the past two hours so i’ve just been blasting tally hall n’ devant david and his spirit wife as loud as my iphone speakers can go
