Making a (bunch of) list(s): 5 things 11.12.2017

 I get unreasonable satisfaction from small achievements like getting the monthly recycling out on time. (There are specific, separate days for cardboard and paper.

Still navelgazing: 5 MORE things about identity, 6.11.2017, dear gods when will it stop, enough already with the narcissism

Still keep thinking about my changing sense of self. I had a bit of a jolt this week when I realised I'm becoming far more conformist than I ever used to be (or wanted to be) – I was reading about Disneybounding (I KNOW RIGHT!!) and realised I'm never going to try it. Not just… Continue reading Still navelgazing: 5 MORE things about identity, 6.11.2017, dear gods when will it stop, enough already with the narcissism
