i am a little uninspired lately!
but i will be back next week with a little update on my life :)
here are some things i've found that i love.

how to live in new york city: 

watch your life in new york go through phases. spend a summer in fort greene with a lover and get to know the neighborhood and its rhythms. othe fling ends, forget the blocks, parks and restaurants ever existed and don’t return unless you have to.

encounter a lot of people crying in public. watch an nyu student cry in think coffee, a business woman in midtown sob into her cellphone, an old man whimper on a stoop in greenpoint. at first, it will feel very jarring but, like everything else, it will become normal. have your first public cry in front of a bank of america. cry so hard and don’t care if people are watching you. you pay good money to be able to cry in public.
(the rest)

i just finished this book. i read it years ago but forgot how haunting it was. it's a really lovely book, full of twisted fairy-tales and creatures. i really recommend reading it if you haven't yet!

while speaking of books, this is one that i've had on my wishlist for a few months now. after reading the book of lost things it has only made me want it even more!
