ask me anything
Will you still love me, tomorrow?

Ain’t no sunshine when

This is precisely how I feel about being in Los Angeles right now.

I’ve always felt like home was a person and not a place.
I feel so homesick. Homeless, rather, more than ever.

I want to say that I’m trapped, here, in my transience.
I want to say many more things, to explain. I don’t have the wherewithal.

Bianca wrote me this morning. The subject was simply “<3". Another reminder that everyone who cares for me lives in New York, or Berlin, or Toronto. A few days ago, her company, Small Girls PR, had sent me a pair of Tortoise & Blonde sunglasses.

They arrived precisely on a day when I had been crying steadily. I needed these glasses. Thank you.

She suggested that I elaborate on the motto inscribed in the case “ONE Today. ANOTHER Tomorrow.” I think I’m supposed to write about babes and adventures and how life goes on. How I could have one of each of the aforementioned today, and another tomorrow.

But I can’t. I haven’t decided what it is I could say that would make things better or whether they’d be worse.
I’m afraid that I may have already said enough of the wrong things, rendering irreparable.
I’ll let my new Sunset shades tell you how I feel –

black and blue.

For now, I just want to take each day as it comes. One today, another tomorrow.

I haven’t been able to get excited about anything for the past few weeks except for this!
Generation You-only-get-real-mail-when-you-purchase-things-online.

After years of crash-bang-booming around vintage totes, overhead storage, and off bathtub ledges, I bought a skin for my Macbook Pro. Considering my hometown friends Dayna and Dawn are both so dear to Gelaskins, I took advantage of their facebook promo and ordered one. Go midnight madness purchases!

My two babies match.

I chose to make my own custom skin using a disposal camera photo I took at Umami Burger in Los Feliz.
It’s my favourite reminder that the sun is always shining somewhere, so SMILE!

Reaction formation

: a psychological defense mechanism in which one form of behavior substitutes for or conceals a diametrically opposed repressed impulse in order to protect against it.

– Merriam-Webster dictionary

Some people burn bridges, I tend to hurl wrecking balls at them. Drunken fists full.

Sometimes we say and do things we don’t mean
because it’s easier than being vulnerable.

To get a reaction, even if it’s a bad one. So you can run away from an insurmountable problem you’ve created than to admit and endure what’s really bothering you.
