End-of-quarter is over and I didn’t throw up or get yelled at and now it’s October, the best month of the year. Happy midnight deadline, everyone. May you never have to know what that is.

I got a haircut today, got up early and went before work despite knowing I’d be at work for 12 hours, and it was worth it, no regrets, but I got a blow out and it looks so silly on my head? the person with this hair belongs in a romcom about having it all. the person with this hair bakes. the person with this hair wears nude heels and has certainly never cried in the grocery store while buying cat nail clippers at 11 pm on a Monday. don’t get me wrong, I’m not washing it for a week, but I do keep wanting to tell strangers that I’m merely an imposter in the hair of a duchess.

You could feel a vibration in the air, a sense of hastening. It has started with the moon, inaccessible poem that it was. Now men had walked upon it, rubber treads on a pearl of the gods. Perhaps it was an awareness of time passing, the last summer of the decade. Sometimes I just wanted to raise my hands and stop. But stop what? Maybe just growing up.
