Finished the very very very small amount of work I’d set for myself today. I really should do more, but I think I’ll clean the house up instead.
I’ve been getting a lot of work, and it would be very easy to just bury myself in it and disappear, resurfacing again in a month or so pale, malnourished, and rich.
But, I’m living with someone, and it’s kind of embarrassing to do shit like that in front of someone else.
My goal is to leave the house at least once everyday. Usually I just go to a dance class. I should switch it up some more.
I like going to this saturday class when I can, because my friend goes and we sort of hang out and have a chat and catch up.
I need some more girlfriends. I mean, girlfriends I can go out with (this friend is sober, no going out for drinks). I can hang with another friend on sundays, maybe afternoon/evening after her hangover clears up, because she’s a hostess who works all night and sleeps all day.
That must have been what it was like trying to hang out with me back in the day…
Tomato jam. So good.
Everyone almost licked the jar last night.
I know it sounds weird but believe me, it’s awesome.
We hung out with this guy who we found out lives in the neighborhood, iraqi jew, family in israel, canadian passport, so funny. I haven’t hung out with another jew in ages, and it’s weird, but i realized i missed it.
in bed, falling asleep, I said to my man that I liked that guy. He got all jealous. “How much do you like him?”
Thanks y’all! That was so helpful, thanks so much!
4 and 5 were very close, but it was 6 by a long shot. And I think that’s great because in a lot of ways it’s universal and relevant today (even though it was written in the 1950s), and I think it would have meaning for people in the English speaking world too. Which is important for a translated work.
I like that one, personally too. I think because it felt so real to my own experiences.
And Adamukun, The writer’s name is 金達寿, I’ve seen it translated different ways, but I think I like it written as Kim Dal-Su the best.
AngryPolishGirl, hopefully you can read all of them soon! it’d be great if I could get them published!
