how fantastic it is to with you, my love

I believe indulging in pretty clothing is just as important as indulging in chocolate and champagne this time of year. I think that’s always why I enjoy Christmas because you can give people gifts and I also like themes. That, or, it’s having another reason to celebrate any given holiday in the calendar year. Are you doing anything special with your sweetheart or besties?

Things I’m looking forward to crossing out on my bucket list this month:

And I’m so sick of love songs, so tired of tears, so done with wishing you were still here

December is here! 2017 is winding down. It’s been a bad year for me, so I’m looking forward to it ending.
Here are something things I’m looking forward to crossing out on my bucket list this month:
  • Calligraphy Challenge  – Last month’s challenge was fun! Also, it’s nice to have some set-aside words to practice on.
  • Reading News: I get the Times and the New Yorker delivered to me, and I’ve been better reading the New Yorker but the Times…some days I don’t even look at the paper. Sure, I have it electronically with notifications from the app, but it’s not the same (also am somewhat wasting money) – so this month, even when I’m busy, I need to squeeze in time to read at least the main section and business section!
  • Read Dubliners: I have been putting off reading Ulysses or I read to a certain point, and then I stop. I think to get back into Joyce, I’ll reread Dubliners. Some of his characters in Dubliners appear in Ulysses
  • Finish holiday shopping: I don’t have many things to buy for people, but there’s still some that I haven’t gotten to yet!
  • Baking: For those who I don’t buy presents for, I tend to make cookies. My friend Liz and I tend to do cookie exchanges, and I normally put 5 of the same cookies in own box, but with all the extra cookies I put them in boxes and give them to other people.
  • Self-time: This holiday season I’m not planning on going anywhere, and a good amount of people I know are leaving town, so that leaves me extra time to spend on myself this month!
  • Photos: I’m so bad at taking photos of myself, and I don’t usually like asking people to take photos of me (sometimes), so I’m hoping to take more photos using the tripod I recently bought.
What’s on your bucket list this month?

I would have only given you love .

Everything is horrible, and I feel like my life is falling apart. There’s this rotting feeling in me, where the earth’s gravitational pull sits in the shape of a disk beneath you like the center of the universe swallowing itself in its core, silencing the air through willing suffocation.

But not to be too personal in this post, these past few weeks I have been swamped with work,which was hard to do since my glasses broke and wearing contacts all day and staring at a screen isn’t fun, juggling coursework / graduate school applications, and trying to fix my bust up life (kind of).

My bucket list for November:
