3. I bought two lovely tops - a snugly oversized t-shirt and a flowery black shirt - for a total of $10 from a Neuw outlet. There were so many lovely things it was hard to only buy two, for two reasons (haha) - I didn't have much money and I was trying to stick to my rule of thinking of 3 ways to wear something (well) before I purchase it. THAT SHAT HARD.

5. I wrote three letters! Three whole letters! My my, this post is just full of numbers and counting. Two are for overseas - one to my grandparents and the other to my radical pen pal Eva. The third is to a dear friend of mine who wrote me a thank you note and who does that these days? So she needed to be acknowledged obviously. I find letters so endearing. The pleasure of re-reading them is incomparable to anything else.
7. I wrote an introductory piece about me for my lit homework that is exactly 150 words - count 'em. It's about me from the point of view of my alter ego - I chose my inner child. It took AGES to make myself write it (seriously it could count as its own era) because I just didn't know what to say. But then while I was doing some other homework I just had this sudden idea for it and started writing. It took about ten minutes to complete totally, and I'm quite happy with the result. I think you get to know me and my inner child well enough in what these 150 words allow.
Un-once upon a time, there were no princesses or dragons or knights in shining armour. There is, however, a girl called Katia who believed in all three. Not me Katia, but the grown-up-ish one, sixteen and two thirds old. But she doesn’t really like grown-ups, just adults.
She used to believe in things like knights in shining armour, but then she found out all this cool stuff about grrrl power being real and she’d rather be something like an AE/IOU or OB/GYN than a princess. So I’m sad that we don’t get to play princesses anymore but she lets me play with her brother Vincenzo sometimes so it’s okay.
I want to be an author but Katia has no idea anymore. We still both love reading, and sometimes the same books. We still wish we were older than we are, but Katia doesn’t want to actually get there just yet.

10. I worked on a very exciting art-related project with my excellent friend that hopefully I can share soon! It will be reallysuperhyperfantasticalcool. I'm going to leave you in suspense now MWAHAHAHA
but I'm not that mean so I'll give you a pleasing music video to an even more pleasing song to take your mind off of it.
Looking over this I feel sort of embarrassed that a lot of what I have done lately is quite focused on myself. It's good to take me time and blah blah but I'm trying to be careful not to stray from this so I'll be posting more aware and thoughtful things soon. Stay tuuuuuned.
