THORNS: not always feeling like myself and i'm in charge of an in-house housing lottery and it's blehhhhh; everytime i go out, i have an existential crisis because i feel like an old person and i dont know what to do, everyone is talking and laughing and i dont understand, i feel like im watching from behind a little spaceship and its' very weird and i feel lame about how much art i make, i don't know if i should make more; lost my house keys and i was locked out of my room and i slept in bed; it's really scary when other people have control over your thought process, is it scarier when they know what they're doing or when they don't; during midsummer, i had an itch on my back hthe entire time and i don't even remember the frickin' play, slipped the scaff and bruised my hip; putting too much energy into the wrong places; i have an orgo exam on tuesday and i haven't studied; we can't stay with our friend in new york; chafing while i run; really exhausted and haven't done anything this weekend; raphaes bagel, its raphaes bagel; your body forgets how to metabolize poison in your body and my uber driver was very chatty; tried to wake up this morning to read kierkegard and felt very sleepy; really shitty beginning of the week but it got better; way too many things i want to work on, not enough hours in the day to do them; want to be a person who makes their visions come true and sometimes i do not think i know what my visions are; staying up too late

ROSES/IRMAS: for the first time, i woke up before this meeting and did something productive, i made a cone out of paper; andrew made me a grilled cheese and brought it to me in bed; the upside of frying my hair with bleach and i can not wash it for a super long time and it doesn't look oily; josh saw my doppelganger; kim neir is the best and met everyone; seeing people you love; my friends came to visit me; drove up from north carolina to visit my best friend; my mom is coming today to see midsummer; raphaes bagel, it looks really good; best birthday ever surrounded by lovers and love; decided to be a real person and went to a party and got velly velly drunk n' high; thought back to when i was a freshman and couldn't understand kierkegard and now i do! but i am also going to be homeless in berlin next year; tallgrass is beautiful; painting; went to see a nuts-ass play at 95 empire 'since everything'– crazy shit that makes no sense–> 'fuck capitalism' and an old canadian man was sitting next to me and said 'i like capitalism'; it was my nieces first birthday, playing games
