i am so blessed. so so blessed.

so in love with my life right now despite everything.


Neat and tidy Japanese retailer MUJI has designed a home maximising living space on a small plot specifically for the city dweller. The slim three-storey house is simple and efficient, a central wooden staircase connects the floors, placing functions of daily life in close proximity to each other. All the floors are free from internal doors and walls, and with the house featuring large windows, it makes for ample natural light running throughout.

every interaction you have with another human being on a regular basis is a relationship. i’m not sure why we only call our “significant others” people we are in “relationships” with.  also why do they have to be a significant other? how are they more significant than your other friends? i mean idealistically, a “significant other” for me would be a someone i consider to be a close friend but that i also sleep with. definitely not my best friend.  making this person into the end all be all, having to spend all your time with them, being dependent on them - that’s just a lot of pressure waiting to explode.  why do we put these expectations on individuals? 

  • jenny: last year i dressed up as oedipus rex
  • me: did you fuck your mom?
  • jenny: no, but i was the original mother fucker.
  • renae: i've never seen you this happy before. i guess it's cuz you're in your element
  • me: what, my room?
  • renae: no, eating.
  • renae: where did the A come from??
  • jenny: the scarlet A? it's from your adultery!
that’s the thing about friendship, it’s a lot rarer than love - because there’s nothing in it for anybody.

May the life you lead be a good one, a life free of regrets
Have you ever seen the shadows of tears, Mr. Wind-Up Bird? They’re nothing like ordinary shadows. Nothing at all. They come here from some other, distant world, especially for our hearts. Or maybe not. It struck me then that the tears my shadows was shedding might be the real thing, and the tears that I was shedding were just shadows.

— Haruki Murakami’s The Wind-Up Bird Chronicles

Do you ever wonder whether people would like you more or less if they could see inside you? …I always wonder about that. If people could see me the way I see myself—if they could live in my memories—would anyone, anyone, love me
