$7.19

白露。

A collage, but mostly black. Not sure why. Click for a song I heard today.

It’s already 11pm, so I won’t write too much. The picture for today is the first thing I’ve made in a while… whether it’s for these posts or for fun. I haven’t been up to much (creatively). Since last time, I’ve been moving—packing, loading, unloading, moving, doing that again after getting keys, and then now unpacking finally. I unfortunately hurt my back because I am very weak and ended up having to compensate with Parts of the Body that probably shouldn’t be lifting things (it’s my back).

I bought meals at the small Korean supermarket near where my cousin lives recently and although I bought very different things, the price was consistent. A few days ago it was $7.19, and today it was $7.21. I bought kimbap and a bottle of milk coffee. I took the bus and streetcar to my new place. After a few hours of strenuous unpacking and furniture wrangling, I went back. On my way, I noticed that there’s a bubble tea store really close, and that made me extremely happy for about five minutes. I also called my mom and my brother earlier, and it was alright. My brother… is entering grade 5…

Anyway, my mental state has not been That Great recently. Perhaps it’s the fury of all the repressed anger and frustration bubbling up, or the remnants of [whatever happened 5 or so years ago, and also whatever may have resurfaced a few weeks ago], or maybe because I’m just stressed and school is starting soon. I’ll (ideally) be graduating soon. How unexpected! Everything has changed, yet somehow, absolutely nothing has changed. Hopefully when classes begin I’ll be distracted enough by Having to do Stuff that I won’t be sad or empty.

Until then.
