So um I’m just going to post things here because I’m not okay but whatever
Thing 1: The other day my friend told me I had long eyelashes and I sorta went “thanks, I grew them myself”, which is basically a summary of my sense of humour
Thing 2: I’m mostly dealing with things right now by listening to Sarah Kay’s poem “B”/ “If I should have a daughter”, and every time I listen to it I am almost reduced to tears (which is a small miracle because I rarely cry over such things) because I love it a lot. And I absolutely love the following line:
“And she’s going to learn that this life will hit you, hard, in the face, wait for you to get back up just so it can kick you in the stomach. But getting the wind knocked out of you is the only way to remind your lungs how much they like the taste of air.”
Thing 3: I’ve realised that I’m a bit of a freak and one of my favourite things is free fighting, which I sometimes (but not often) do at my karate classes. It’s really the only way I know how to let everything out? it’s sort of how I relax, which is weird, because I actually completely hate conflict.
Thing 4: I’m very bad at showing affection, and I strongly sympathise with the quote ”and how can you say I love you to someone you love?” from the book Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer, but it doesn’t mean I don’t care about my people, I just have a different way of doing it.
I think that’s enough because otherwise I’ll tell you all my deepest secrets and we don’t want that
