hello again! I've moved around a lot bc of all the instance extinctions, but am now here and planning to stay put.
I talk about: my day to day life, my feelings, knitting/yarn, art, books, lesbian stuff, naps, random objects I find, piano, ukulele, and organising. sometimes I do my nails and take pictures of it. my favourite colours are blues and chromatic greys.
I am friendly (I hope) but not great at initiating conversations, so talk to me!
Welcome new people! 👏 👋

the heat is changing the viscosity of my nail polish, but I got em done anyway! this is that holographic rainbow stuff over blue (still haven't really figured out how to photograph it but oh well)
I think I'm finally starting to recover from the sickness I've had for the last two weeks, bc I just Did A Thing that wasn't in the "strictly required to stay alive" category
I quite enjoyed painting this one. Wanted to do a piece like that for ages but didn't know where to start and how to proceed. I figured I would just work in layers, back to front, and I like how it turned out!

Spicy Hot Take: Howl's Moving Castle (the Ghibli movie) does a terrible disservice to the book, removing half of the important plot points while simultaneously making the narrative completely incomprehensible outside the context of a cheesy children's film

relationships/thinking out loud Show more
loving everybody equally can have the unfortunate effect of seeming like you love nobody at all
i wish people belonged to communities more than individualized relationships because it would eliminate the need for people to rely on getting what their idea of love and validation from a single "significant other" as theyre called
im not even talking about polyamoury here, i just think theres a strong need for other kinds of connections to be explored, only then i believe can a person feel like they truly belong in the world. the western idea of relationships is very toxic, the idea of finding "the perfect one" is dangerous.
