If someone secretly photographed us on our way to the station, we might wince at how surly, stern, uncongenial, guarded to misanthropic we seem.

Monday So much rain. I came home from work, did a few minor tasks, then moved to the sofa early for two episodes of Handmaids’ Tale. I hired a Task Rabbiter to come Thursday and assemble my bookshelves. Which means that soon, this nonsense will be sorted out: Tuesday OOTD: I came across this charming […]
Finally, on a nice afternoon, Amazon dragged a beautiful book into my life. That is, I was excited for it since Christine’s first Book-Writing video, and a few weeks after the book got released it arrived… in Austria. (I still took my time reading it because that’s what I do, apparently. I stare at piles […]

Inside royal apartments, in Versailles. Maps on the wall, books, manuscripts on tables. On the World Map, the King traced the itinerary of a long journey. Still young in his uniform of captain of navy, a man closer to him observed. The royal finger always goes further. He passed round America, went up towards Asia, […]

Zara has always been my go-to store when I’m looking for stylish but affordable clothing. The company plan I created below explains briefly what I’d […]
2:30 am. 06.17.2019. there is something about the simplicity of this blog theme and the vacantness of the blog as a whole that makes me feel put-off by my own creation. the words read as though i am some young socialite who lives in a tiny apartment in a cosmopolitan city. an air of pretension, […]
Some friends of mine adopted a dog last week. They’d rescued him from a monster who beat him, and the pup had mostly been cowering behind the furniture ever since. He whined a lot, my friends said, but he never barked at strangers who came through the door. I told my friends they should name […]
