i want today to be a good day. a stargirl day, glitter wings & candy kisses. day off work today, and it is much needed. wendy said she opened a file the other day and it still had glitter in it. i'm leaving my mark, and i like it. it's making people smile, and i feel a bit like the stargirl character in jerry spinelli's book that i'm reading (&oh! how did it take me so long to start reading it?)
travel agency jumping today; trying to make plans and set itineraries and book flights (perhaps?) for my uk holiday in october. i want something concrete, something definite now; i keep thinking that maybe it won't happen after all, but i'm already so excited. i think i'm already too late for some of the earlybird specials; it'd be nice to have some plans & dates for certain. and i love thursdays for late night shopping; stupid mentality from working in retail for 4 years still leaves me feeling as though thursday is a longer day than any other, and i suppose it is, for shopping hours; for once i don't feel rushed, i'm not counting minutes left to get everything done.
still many wonderful zine submissions coming through. it is amazing, inspiring, enlightening to read what people have to say, see what they create. i am touched that they will share it with me, that i can help them to promote their work. i'm nearly all caught up on my penpal letters, and it is a strange feeling. i know i'm going to be going shopping today at some stage and i most definitely shouldn't; but oh, there are always amazing things to send to people that i see in the strangest of places. perhaps i should have tried to give up shopping for 40 days instead.
glitter girl, glitter bug, stargirl. it's okay to be different. i don't want to think about the real world, just for a few hours. is that such a bad thing?
