❝ this too shall pass ❞
and if it isn't okay, it isn't the end.
08 01 15 - // good_morning

This morning, when I got to work, my brother and I sat in the shade of the building for a little while. He was just soaking the breeze while I was smoking. It seems a little weird, but the weather here hasn't been this nice, cool and clement in a while. It was kind of a novelty.

I just finished reading The God of Small Things, by Arundhati Roy. It's... definitely left an impression on me. It's hard to explain. Even now, when I step outside, I'm always a little stunned that it's not hot and humid and that it doesn't smell like rivers and swamps.

Yesterday was a rough morning. It got a really, really rough start. I fought myself, hard, and I'm not sure who won. But there's a line, in the book, that kept coming back to me to haunt and terrify me:

"D'you know what happens when you hurt people?" Ammu said. "When you hurt people, they begin to love you less. That's what careless words do. They make people love you a little less."

It just kept spinning round and round in my head because I was so ungodly terrified of how I'd hurt him that I couldn't think of anything else. Ammu's words felt like law to me and it didn't feel like things could be any other way.

So this morning was... a welcome breath of fresh air, so to speak. Felt like something new. Now that i've finished that book, I can move onto other things, and keep making more beautiful jewellery.

the thing i was scared would happened finally fucking happened

this guy at work (who’s probably really nice but has never bothered to show it to me and goes out of his way to be/pretend to be a sexist mysoginist pig) came up behind me and touched my neck

I know that’s where my tattoo is and I KNOW that a pentagram will attract a lot of attention but you have no right to touch me you fucking disgusting scum of the planet

Ever since I met him I have been terrified this would happen. Even since I started working in these offices I’ve been scared this would happened because I work with my back to the “hall” so I never see anyone coming or going

I am going to have a fucking metldown

Happy birthday to leyla_lovely, who is an amazing artist and whom I appreciate from the bottom of my heart. Much joy for you in this day of glory!
