One fine day

One day a photo will be taken of me in which I am wearing makeup and my hair is combed. This is not that day.

This day was huge.

This day I found out I was promoted. Lots of stuff happened.

When I got home there were tons of packages waiting for me. Jewelry and clothes.

It was like my birthday all over again, except I had ordered them weeks before when I was a little depressed. :/

So I had all this new stuff, and I'd just been promoted. My face was still all hot when I got home as you can see, and my hair had frizzed out of its braids. I realized I wanted to remember this moment forever.

April 14 - turned 30

April 15 - promoted

April 22 - taped some inspirational quotes on my desk. Feeling. unsure of myself.

This cemetery was near Waterside. We wandered there after dinner. The first, and oldest, grave, mentioned in the historical marker.

Studying with Dolls

In the afternoons, I usually take my laptop or a book to the bed and study, and a doll for company. Gertrude is sitting on my bed desk. I got her in 2015 from the Korean doll company Dollmore. She's a "Flocke" sculpt. Willow is sitting with my headphones. She's made by the Chinese company Angel of Dream. I got her in 2013. She's a "Qing" sculpt.
Two older entries I edited tonight re-posted today's date. However, the original month/year is still visible in the permalink. Looking back on the past often makes me cringe, especially when I remember my own behavior. However, re-reading these entries makes me feel the past is accessible in the sense that I am still holding on to many of the same dreams and desires. This week, for comps, I read two early gothics, James Hogg's The Private Memoir and Confessions of a Justified Sinner , and Charles Brockden Brown's Edgar Huntly; or, a Sleep-Walker , which were very much along the lines of the books that absorbed me from 2005-2007, most of which I read on my Treo from Project Gutenberg. Looking back upon my interests and desires of that time sustains me now, when I have to tap into my reserves every day to keep reading.
