i suck at everything (or is this just my jet lag talking?)


I’m still jet lagged, it’s 1:00 AM and I’m tired (but not that tired) and I didn’t do any of the things I wanted to get done this weekend.  I didn’t:

  • Go to the farm shop and buy lots of fresh produce + the amazing rhubarb jam that I love and am currently out of  :( 
  • Finish the invite for our Artists Unveiled Launch Party or do the other 45 things I must do for our little site / cause. (Liam, you’re the best for not sending me abusive emails about all this!)  
  • Find out whether or not the Tea Tree Oil I’m putting on my face is actually doing anything– and if it is, is it good?
  • Sketch a family portrait for my best friend who just had a baby!!!
  • Research new beds  (After staying in amazing king-sized beds in America, it has become all too clear that our DOUBLE-SIZED mattress is basically the cause for everything bad in our lives.  No joke, it’s the worst. I’m pretty sure 4 hours of sleep on a normal, good mattress = 9 hours of sleep on ours.  It’s so bad.)
  • Exercise  (hahaha! but seriously…)
  • Read Kinfolk, which I bought in the States and have been carrying with me, unopened, for the last week and a half
  • Written about the surreal melancholy I feel every time I go to The States and then come back.  I can only imagine it’s like having an affair in that I am so in love with both places but need them for different kinds of fulfilment.  It’s so confusing / heartbreaking / amazing / perfect.  I don’t know.  I JUST DON’T KNOW.
  • Get rid of my mustache which is growing like ivy all over my face, I swear.  :(

I’ve also been really bad at taking pictures lately.  In fact, I’ve been terrible at doing anything creative, meeting personal deadlines, and cleaning. Seeing as autumn has always been a time of reflection for me (something engrained from my school days and the dawning of a new academic year), I have a good day or two of re-evauluation and goal-setting ahead of me. And one of those goals will be to spend more time on this space. Because right now, this is awful.


Okay, goodnight.
