this is a remarkable time in our lives. one we’ll probably always remember. something we should learn from.
tomorrow I’ll meet my best friend and as much as I love her I’m terrified by seeing a person I’m not somehow related to.
I used to meet my friends every other day and now … now what?
I waste my time.
I’m discovering myself.
this is how I use this time. because I have privileges.
if you can’t use it the way I do, that’s okay.
maybe you grief for someone you lost.
maybe you try to help people.
maybe you’re laying in bed all time feeling unwell.
maybe you’re not productive at all.
we’re going trough a global trauma experience.
stay safe (and maybe this “safe place” isn’t home).
know that you’re loved.
soooooooooo…. enough deep words for today :))
I’ll just go ahead my usual schedule and share my favorite reads, movies, looks, accounts and songs ♡
books I’d recommend to read in spring:
- basically any Jane Austen book
- heartstopper /alice oseman
- old children favorites — such as the secret garden, Peter Pan etc.
- the secret history /donna tart (for some reason that’s very spring-ish to me)
- Ramona blue /julie Murphy
movies I enjoyed:
the half of it
I saw someone on twitter who wrote: finally a lesbian drama about two girls of colour directed by a lesbian woman of colour
and yeah, that’s right and amazing but I think this movie is so much more than this.
it’s about the need to be loved.
about how every (aloromantic person) keeps looking for the ultimate love. the so called love of my life.
and how you may get disappointed. how you keep fighting.
how you struggle going your way and doing it anyway.
it’s a sad movie but it’s a life-affirming one as well.
Sense & Sensibility
to watch Jane Austen movie adaptions in spring might be a little basic but still great.
