It is time to stuff my body with pasta again

Sent on Sep 18, 2018

A year ago I released a set of emoticon faces as stickers for iOS and I've recently started making a new collection of faces. I've just been uploading them to an are.na channel because I don't know what I'm going to do with them yet. Making stickers for messaging apps is hard, I don't think I can bring myself to do that again. If you have any ideas of where you would want to see them or use them etc, let me know. I was sort of thinking a mood journal/calendar thing with a physical sticker pack that you can use to document your moods throughout the year. Might be helpful to find patterns in your mental health.

I installed a browser plugin that surfaces quotes from The Creative Independent every time I open a new tab. This one from Claire L. Evans is very comforting:

We are all literally as good as we're gonna get for us at our level right now. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


My life is really a complicated affair of mirrors I look nice in and mirrors I don't. Just like Jean Rhys in Good Morning, Midnight:

There's nothing I do more than eat pasta and scroll through various social media feeds. So, I will end with my poem about just that:

It is time to stuff my body with pasta again

and browse the feed
and look in the mirror
and expect to see the same:
         a feed of pretty things

instead i see me:
         dense
         round
         uncooked
