The Goldfinch won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction!
Why am I so excited?
Because this is the first year I’ve read a winning novel in the same year that it won, and I absolutely loved it.
It’s kind of Great Expectations meets Great Gatsby meets jaded New York millennial. It’s pretty amazing and I highly recommend it.
This is my human. Though there are many like it, this one is mine
Oh my gosh, I just realized I could actually pull very gently on the laces on my minnetonka mocs and they would tighten the whole shoe…I spent like 2 months wondering if it was possible the suede stretched out that much, even though I got it in a 6.5 when I’m a 7.5! I had no idea those laces did anything but look cute.
I no longer feel like my shoes are going to fall off my feet! Now I can wear my favorite, lazy day shoes without feeling like I’ve given up on life!
workout motivation: 2% get healthy 98% become wonder woman
I’ve been trying to get back on the fitness wagon, and I was doing really well for the last two weeks. I wouldn’t say I’ve plateaued this week, but I have been in stuck in situations where the only solution is to have something really sugary. Like, right now, where I am at a mediocre boba place for the wifi and I ordered an assam milk tea that is literally sugar milk. And I did so many exercises yesterday that my butt is way too sore to do any kind of running.
I know it’s shallow, but whatever. I’ve been feeling the stress, overeating, and addiction to milk tea in my belly and thighs. It’s got to end because summer is coming and I have some cute clothes I’d like to wear again without discomfort.
But really. Of all the amazing milk tea in SGV why is this one so awful.
I haven’t posted in awhile because there’s too much going on in life to even process how weird I am. Between being really, super broke, work, working out more, and needing to sleep basically all weekend in order to stay sane, I really don’t have time to write something nice and happy on tumblr. And I’m not even that depressed.
Instead of tumblr, I should be cleaning my room. Ha.

kangalex asked: uniqlo hoodies vs aa hoodies?
I’ve never owned an AA hoodie, because back when I though AA was so hip and cool I couldn’t afford anything in the store. Uniqlo hoodie is on the thin side though, which is great for layering imo.
I went several years without purchasing a hoodie. That’s so hard to do in LA, where a hoodie basically takes care of any cool weather needs, but I was successfully wearing sweaters, cardigans, parkas, and other real clothing that said “I’m making an effort in life! I’m ambitious and going places!”.
Then I got this super soft hoodie from Uniqlo. Initially, it was just to wear around the house. How naive. The power of the hoodie is strong.
I’ve basically given up sartorially. I am wearing this hoodie at every opportunity and it goes into the wash every single week without fail so I can wear it all week again. I don’t even have any other colors, so if that doesn’t scream “Start-up uniform”, I don’t know what else would.
