So rainy outside these days! I'd best get all the wear out of my cute little rain coat before it gets too cold for a plastic jacket, and this rainy weather is the perfect occasion. I sort of wish I had proper wellington boots to go with my jacket because wellies can look so stylish, but I would feel ridiculous wearing them for anything other than a quick walk through the mud. Can you imagine shopping in rubber rain boots? I sure can't! Me, I draw the line at a plastic jacket. Classy as heck.
Like my tights? I bought them last winter in London. God, February feels years ago. So much has happened since then: my dad dying, finishing my thesis, graduating from University, losing a dear friend, getting my first real job... Sometimes I scroll back through my archives (OK quite often) and I don't even recognize myself. Like I'm a distant relative of that girl, or like she's someone I sometimes encounter on the way to the supermarket. Somehow, the cold light of the frozen foods section really evokes the feeling I'm trying to pinpoint here. Fridge surrealism.
I'm not even sure if I'm still the same individual I was back then. Not because I've changed that much as a person, but because it feels like it was too much for one person to experience in such a short time span. I think I must have respawned since then.
Gosh, autumn really has me all kinds of introspective, right? AWKWARD
