The last month or so has been filled with blooming tea, lily scented incense, mix cd's, Audrey Hepburn calendars, and hours and hours of art class. Leopard print shoes, cozy scarves, hand holding, movie watching, grocery shopping for fruits and vegetables, and cuddling. Dashing out of school to shop for ripped vintage dresses. Smiling at gradual weight loss. Getting excited about short brown hair slowly becoming long brown hair.
"I've got a family, + I drink cups of tea. I’ve got nostalgic pavements, I’ve got familiar faces. I’ve got a mixed-up memory, & I’ve got favourite places." Kate Nash.
I'm starting to pretend that spring is here. Excitement for February fills me with anticipation. I apply rose pink lipstick and light candles that smell like fresh flowers. Close my blinds and try to hear the birds chirping. Things are changing now more than ever, and it excites me beyond all measure. I go over the letters on my history binder in black sharpie; "Herstory." That teenage feeling.
