pretty grey morning, crisp clean, breakfast twice, potatoes, roommate, coffee, dishwasher hum
sticky notes rolly pens makeup everywhere need a shower also a grilled cheese sad to be done with Parks and Rec on Netflix long reading lists youtube book fan little side projects one more week of school, college, no

nathaniel hawthorne, non fiction writers, personal reflection essay, patti smith presentation, edits, reports reports reports

note to self: read dictionary
