unlike some people, i don't thrive when i'm wildly busy. i cringe and dread instead. i usually think longingly about escape. and i indulge myself in little ways to keep me sane. today, it was a tiny piece of vegan chocolate cake, sweetened with white grape juice and grains. it brought me happiness for about three minutes. (i write that with full awareness and admission that my present state of mind is pathetic and sad.)
so, all that to simply say that i've been very busy with unimportant things. work things that don't really change the world for the better. things i will very soon forget.
