One of those moments

I'm having one of those moments.

It's one of those moments where you stop thinking about what's going to happen tomorrow and next year, when you stop living in the future, and realize that right now is what you always wanted.

Right now is what I've always wanted.

And there are many more moments that I've always wanted, and I'll get them eventually. But right now is one of those many moments.

I'm drinking tea and listening to Kaki King. I'm wearing something that looks like Diane Keaton circa Manhattan era. I'm in a college dorm room in New York studying something that makes me happy. It's cold outside. I have lots of wonderful friends who aren't yet tired of me freeloading Metrocard swipes off them. The song has changed and now it's Sleepyhead by PassionPit, so that's awesome. Sure, my desk could be cleaner, and I could be finished with my paper by now (I've only sort of started, and it's due tomorrow) but this is one of those moments where I have to stop living in what's going to happen and relish what's happening now.

(I do, however, want a nose job, in other news. But that's for another day.)

And oooooohhhhhhmigod I have so much work to do. It's really startling. What a stressful semester.

I have so much to be envious of my friends for! One of my best friends is in Amsterdam, another of my bests is getting a majorly hot body through dancing and sensibility. Eventually I hope they both move up here and get a damn apartment with me already.

Saw Next to Normal tonight. I could do what she does.

Ok, time to stop procrastinating and get down to work!
Me sportin' the fingerless gloves. Aw yeah. (They do absolutely nothing for my fingers in 20º wind chill)

I made a picture for my desktop-- it's a collage of a bunch of women who inspire me, whether I aspire to look like them or sing like them or simply make art and do something original like they do. This is one of the photos from the collage
Kaki King, and though I don't have any goals oriented towards mastering the guitar like her, I want to make something original like she does daily. Also she's super super fierce and I don't even like using the word fierce.

K, this is about ten times longer than I planned. Time to go write a paper, study Kanji for a quiz, write two pages of Japanese, memorize a song, plan my work schedule for the week, and still get in my daily hour of Kindle love...
