new room, a quick update

It's been a while, hasn't it? I moved recently, but that's coming up on almost a month ago so that excuse for not being active on this thing is wearing a little thin. I'm absolutely loving my new room. It's an attic room. I have wanted an attic room ever since I first read A Wrinkle in Time. Meg's room sounded ideal to me. It makes the fact that I'm still living at home with my mom and brother a little better. (I love my mom and brother, but I'd rather be on my own). We ultimately decided for me to have this space because I am super hyper-sensitive to noise, and this place is pretty sound tight. I haven't heard anything once. It's really private and has skylights, so I've got a ton of natural light coming in. My old room was so dark all the time it drove me insane. I've almost got the room sorted. I just have a few more things to hang up and put away, which I'm going to try and get done today. Then I will be able to make a post showing it off.

Until then, here is an instagram photo from last week of my little nook, vanity area. Excuse the dead flowers.

Hello, I'm not dead. Here is a girl with a bird's nest on her head.

Nope. Not dead. I just moved a couple weeks ago, which is exhausting. But I am still here.  I'll have a lot of things to share pretty soon. My new room is coming a long nicely and I'll show you as soon as I've got all of the decorating and boxes throwing away done. I've also got a new computer set up and a slew of photos I'm already mulling through. Here is one:

I've been super busy recently so I haven't been able to make any real posts. (They're pretty mediocre right now anyway). We'll be all moved into the new house this time next week so there'll be more things then, hopefully. I'll start to put more into this thing. Until then here is an old picture. I miss using film all of the time.

hot, lazy monday

Mondays are pretty low key for me. (It's like Sunday). I don't work and I generally just hang out in Philip's attic room while he's working. It's hot as balls up here, though.

This is what my Monday looks like:

I'm listening to this.

and I'm reading this

Yesterday Philip and I drove up to my Dad's house and went out to a Mexican restaurant for Father's Day. We came back, took a nap, then watched Game of Thrones (what the hell?). And now, Monday, I'm hanging out with Bogie, the dog, taking cold showers and sitting in my underwear in this un-air-conditioned attic.

Reading List

The Wind-Up Bird ChronicleSerenaL'Écume des joursIlluminationsYour House Is on Fire, Your Children All GoneStonerDuneStories in the Worst WayFoundationThe Lime TwigI Love DickThe Oxford Book of Victorian Ghost Stories

These are some books I've recently added to my to read shelf on Goodreads. I'm thinking about buying a Kindle Paperwhite. I bought one for Philip for Christmas and he uses it constantly (it's actually kind of annoying), and I'm finding that 99% of the books I want to read aren't available in my local library system and I'm not about to order a hardback copy any time I want to try a book out. I really took my college library for granted.

You might notice a theme: I really just want to read some scary shit.
