Hello 2021

Drawing by Edwin Austen Abbey, 1900-1910 I find it hard to believe that today was the first day of the new year. It feels like just yesterday we were celebrating the start of 2020, unaware of what was to come. I feel grateful that, as of now, my family was (mostly) spared by the pandemic.…

impractical ootd

Hello everyone, I hope that you are healthy and safe! I intended to stay indoors today, so I decided to wear something that I usually wouldn't in the summertime.

Summer is almost over

And it was one of the best ones I've had in quite a while. Summers have always been difficult times for me. I am usually broke. I am usually lonely because my friends live far away. But this year I had a job that allowed me to save enough to get by, and my partner…

Mori Kei Inspired: OOTD

I've been meaning to share this outfit for a while, but I kept forgetting to! In case you're wondering what the heck the title is referring to, Mori Kei is a name that was given to a Japanese fashion style. "Mori" means forest, and "kei" means style. It's supposed to look like the style of…
