that is Gloria Swanson in the picture for the video above. I am kind of infatuated with her even though shamefully, I haven’t ever even seen any of her movies. I just think she is incredibly interesting and beautiful and I am a little bit jealous of her gorgeous face. she wrote an autobiography that one day i’m going to read.
only 11 more days of term and then i will be free to daydream, bake, and doodle as much as i please
i just finished reading The Rum Diary by Hunter S. Thompson. i had been meaning to read it for what feels like a very long time, so i bought it from shannon and jared’s yard sale this past summer. i really really liked it, but when i was finished reading it, it made me feel really sad. or something. i’m not fully sure. i kept going back and forth between liking and hating every character in the book. especially Kemp and Yeamon. I very much wanted to like Chenault and Kemp together but it didn’t feel right a lot of the time. I wish Catherine was home so that I could talk to her about this book. it just made me feel so strange. But it’s good. I feel like my mind is working.
I wonder how the movie will compare
Basia Bulat’s new album Heart of My Own comes out tomorrow (january 26th). i’m pretty excited about that. i’ve written about my ohoh one true love for her here before. but repetition about a good thing is a-okay with me. she’s so gorgeous and genuine and if i were to change myself and make myself more like someone else (this, i would not really want to do. but theoretically), i would want to be a little bit like her.
