simple pleasures  
crap. i hate being so tired all the time. although i know the reason for it this time; last night was a restless sleep, strange dreams, feeling like i hadn't slept at all. i was so tired by 9pm i was almost delirious, yet still couldn't sleep much. very frustrating, and now i'm paying the price for my uneasy sleep. i'd like to wake up some time soon though. i'm deciding whether to go back to Russ's tonight again, or spend a night in my own bed. i hate waking up alone :( and i like early-morning hugs. but i've been there almost every night this week, except for thursday. maybe i'll make a decision later - he doesn't get home from work until 9pm tonight anyway.

so, i have some projects to start working on. i miss being creative, but if there's one good thing about being anti-social lately, it's that i'm getting back in touch with my more creative side, and trying not to be afraid to express myself in different ways. i need to choose somewhere to register and host my domain that i want. i need to write more colourful letters. and i'm thinking about making a zine. only thinking, at this stage. but i have some ideas for it. maybe i'll start, and see where it winds up. there's no harm in giving it a try. who would want a copy if i did actually make one? just curious.

i brought some new coloured pencils and markers today. and it's amazing the range of choices these days. when i was younger, it was exciting if someone had a Crayola crayon caddy (i was always so jealous). now there's aisles of various pencils, crayons, markers, glitter glue, puff paint, gel pens. if i'd had more money to spend, i know i could have gone crazy there in k-mart. and it makes me smile that my heart can still find joy in the simplest of things.

I have been thinking of making a zine this weekend as well, a lot of things have been making me think lately and inspiring me despite the sadness. I love your last point about finding joy in simple things, reminds me of the following quote from the end of Prozac Nation

"Sometimes, when you are 6 years old it's cats and dogs that make life worth living and I sometimes think it's not so different now"

I'd love a copy of the zine if you make one, tho understand about postage possibly being pricy to the uk. I could send you something pretty in return, and a copy of my zine if I make one

oh god, you have k-mart? ;.;

I love crayons and markers ^^ I have this crazy ..obsession with office supplies in general. It's not uncommon for me to buy a large box of crayons once a year or so and then go to the Toy House and get the really really cool colouring books.

Who said I ever had to grow up?

i'd love a zine, if you make one, although i don't know how i'd pay you. i don't exhange my money a lot--

on the + side, markers! i've discovered a new craze for markers, & recently got some fat smelly ones, which are good enough to eat.

but then, i've always loved stationary, so maybe i was meant to go back to markers...

A Jade zine, yes please :) It sounds wonderful. I've been thinking about making one too for ages but it seems like all my great ideas vanish the minute I start writing. Maybe when things are more settled!

Nothing can cheer up a girl like new pens and pencils and crayons :D (okay, beauty products are pretty good too)

i think we all need time to get back in touch with our creative side...i used to do a lot of acting and even now i still go over acting pieces whenever i'm feeling upset or frustrated. it's very freeing.

i also know how horrible it is not to sleep, so you have my sympathy. and buying stationery always makes me happy too :)

seems like we have a few things in common :) do you mind if i add you to my friends list?
