emotions aren't covered by single words.

emotions in my experience aren't covered by single words. I don't believe in "sadness", "joy", or "regret". maybe the best proof of that the language is patriarchal is that is oversimplifies feeling. I'd like to have at my disposal complicated hybrid emotions, Germanic train car constructions like, say, "the happiness the attends disaster." or "the disappointment of sleeping with one's fantasy." I'd like to show how "imitations of mortality brought on by aging family members" connects with the "the hatred of mirrors that begins in middle age." I'd like to have a word for "the sadness inspired by failing restaurants" as well as "the excitement of getting a room with a minibar." I've never never had the right words to my life, and now that I have entered my story, I need them more than ever.

thank you jefrey eugenides author of middlesex.

..wait, they don't love you like I love you.

made off, don't stray. my kind's your kind, I'll stay the same.

bathroom stall.

A quotation from jeffrey eugenides' (author of the virgin suicides) novel middlesex has recently stood out to me. I love finding meaning beyond the surface of things, especially those that concern identity and adolescence. In this case, the bathroom stall. The center of the universe for any high school, secrets are told and tears are cried. with more privacy than the locker room the bathroom stalls provide an isolation away from the chaos of high school. some discover their first period, others purge their last meal. some find safety and others fear harassment. eugenides writes "Where else would a girl like me, hiding from the world of knowledge she didn't quite understand herself - where else would she feel more comfortable than in this subterranean realm where people wrote down what they couldn't say, where they gave voice to their most shameful longings and knowledge?".

my faith.

...imagine if you didn't?

job hunting...

I mean I already have the black cat and gothic decor...
