hanging out withcarmen, drinking green tea frappés with red beans! it is way more delicious than it sounds, i had four within the week she introduced them to me. run while you still can. this is reminiscent of that time i went through a stroopwafel phase.
now that you have done your exercise for the day, instagram?
i'll try and be creative and go for at least a photo a day! lies, all lies! no. seriously.
today kikiasked me whether i knew how to skateboard and this was the reply that played out in my head.
when my brother was two he received a skateboard. who gives a two year old a skateboard i'll never know.
being nine it was logic that i would use the board until he was old enough, or until the board was lost, or until the board was thrown over the fence by accident and consequently never retrieved. we lose forever the items that land in the yard of certain mysterious neighbours. sometimes they are thrown back but most of the times even we grow to forget them.
i would skate in the driveway with a surface that physically resembled cobblestones. one day i was pushing with my front foot and the board ran away below me. the thud when i landed on my back was so loud i thought surely all my bones were in pieces. silence sank moments later and my mum opened the door to see what mischief i was up to. unable to move i replied her with my head to the sky.
mum: why are you lying in the driveway you'll get your clothes dirty!
me: i fell.
mum: why aren't you studying?
me: i can't feel my back, i think i'm paralysed.
mum: have you practiced piano?
me: i don't think i'll ever be able to get back up.
mum: are you listening to me? stop wasting time and go do your homework.
*single tear drop proceed to roll down from my unloved right cheek*
i eat ramen way too many meals a week. one day i'd like to live in a house with windows facing the east or west (because i have south facing windows right now and a vitamin d deficiency). for the time being i am on an indefinite mission to see the world (i have travelled five continents thanks to google earth), photograph, and build my teaspoon collection (current count: 2). hi, i am impressively bad at first impressions.
