Five Things

  1. When you receive exactly what you needed in the mail.

Currently my mood is very “Days” by Philip Larkin:

What are days for?
Days are where we live.
They come, they wake us
Time and time over.
They are to be happy in:
Where can we live but days?

Ah, solving that question
Brings the priest and the doctor
In their long coats
Running over the fields

At any given moment you can be 100 percent certain that what’s going on in my head is just the constant recitation of that first line, “What are days for?”

At least it’s not the Mambo No. 5. (Or would that be better?)

2. I love the weather.

Besides that, I’m juggling staying positive with two jobs and school and the nearing end of my undergraduate career. This is helped by things like reading in the bath, notes sent from friends, museums, the color pink, and that hot-vicar-detective show, “Grantchester.”

3. Two displaced cousins have a new ritual: brunch & the museum of the moving image.

4. Working in the flower district

5. Estrogen Empire Strikes Back

Another thing that is keeping me positive is activism: huddles of women all over the world plotting to destroy patriarchy, capitalism, racism, etc. In fact, inspired by a huddle I went to recently I decided to make a list of things anyone can do to help the world in this current moment. Let me know if there’s anything I should add.

Stay positive!
