> I must not form irrational, overemotional attachments to electronic items, laptop, smartphone, Kindle etc and instead remind myself that the best things on earth are simple and involve nature and shit, and I can totally manage to go a couple of weeks without checking my email.*
(*okay, okay, Facebook. FINE. ARE YOU HAPPY NOW?)
> I must do a complete closet purge and throw away all clothes that I haven't worn more than once (or ever) and resist the voice that says, "That would look pretty in three years if you grew taller!" Instead, live for the current sartorial moment, even if you will look back with regret at that awesome dress you gave away three months ago.
> Totally stop using the word 'totally', even if it started out in an ironic fashion, is now irrevocably part of my vocabulary and must be removed. Similarly, the 'duck face' photo pose, once used to mock other girls who used the Duck Face, now part of an alarming amount of my pictures. Must. Go. Now.
> Take success with cooking as a jumping point from which to leap into ALL domesticity. Learn how to crochet, to make homemade thingummys, and centrepieces for your table and be the kind of effortless lovely all round housewife superstar career woman etc that makes everyone look to her with awe. Do this all very modestly and graciously.
> Focus on actually writing third novel instead of opening a Word document and then spending your day daydreaming about all the wonderful reviews you're going to get.
Awesome, Awesome. You want to keep it simple that is good. Best of luck for that.ReplyDelete
Crocheting? Seriously? And superstar housewife-ing?? When did you bring the 50s back?ReplyDelete
Throwing out those clothes is the easy part. It's the getting new ones which is a bit more complicated!ReplyDelete

everyone like it...
thanks for the information...
So here's what new happened on new year... I bought a new book titled "You are Here" (you know who's the author, don't you?)... But I ended up reading the book, sitting in the last bench on my Engineering lecture room... The teacher surprisingly caught me + the book + my bad luck... Now that is not the Happiest New Year for me... And who else should I tell this if not the author?ReplyDelete
Read about 36 pages and cannot buy a new one... Good it is but I guess I'd miss the better part...
