    I wonder whether it’s sustainable to rely on my memory as my second life, my life performed in the real-time of yesterday, last week, last year, in the now-abandoned cocoon from which I have metamorphosed. Shower, kitchen, tabletop, school, in the streets of Paris, no matter. I am always thinking…

"Oh my God, what if you wake up some day, and you’re 65, or 75, and you never got your memoir or novel written; or you didn’t go swimming in warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy; or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? It’s going to break your heart. Don’t let this happen."

    quick update on what i’ve been doing with my mind the past two weeks while ive worked my body to the point of mindless exhaustion:

    binge watched the second season of orange is the new black in 2 days, fell back in love with the writing and character development. missed the characters so i went on…

    I hope I can take that class with you :*
