music: adieu - coeur de pirate

yesterday i almost forgot my writing journal at work. it would have been embarrassing to have my coworkers read it period, but it probably would have outed me and ughhh. it also would have totally ruined my plan for my eventual last day at work to be like 'btw i'm gay, and i've totally catalogued all those homophobic micro aggressions. try thinking before you speak. byeee.'

i was so anxious about it i kept checking to make sure it was in my bag even after i got home. i really need to work on this because i've been late work because i'm double checking that i locked the door, turned off all the lights, etc. even though i know have. i keep thinking, though, that the one i don't double check, i'll be robbed, and a light will malfunction and burn the house down, killing the cat, and so on.

here's a nice essay on scully for the x-files' 20th anniversary.

also, i ordered shoes from delias a while ago, and it's been kind of a hassle. first they were on backorder 5ver, and today learned they've just now charged me. unfortunately, it was with my old card, so it didn't go through. i thought they'd already charged me (it was on my bank statement and everything), so i didn't say anything, but now i have to call them. this is kind of my fault, but i'm still just like ughhh at phone anxiety and talking to people.

i just want some flipping cat shoes.

oh gosh, i am so terrible at this.

this month has been a write-off, and i don't think i'm getting any of the big girl full time jobs i applied for.

in other news, christie's can fuck off with this predatory bullshit. i get it, they're in the business of making $$$, but have some common sense if not compassion. the dia is not deaccessioning a few works to improve their collection. this institution will potentially be decimated. no one is happy about this. (except for auction houses i guess.)

i just applied for a job that i really want. i'm trying not get my hopes up because it's definitely a long shot, but this is the first job i've applied for because i really want to do it and not just because i need money.

ughhh, i spent the last week not caring about anything, and now all i can feel is anxiety about this job. can i just turn my brain off?

today, i spent 8 hours listening to the dull roar of rain hitting the museum roof. it would have been nice if i wasn't at work.

it wasn't too busy though, so i was able to finish a tale for the time being. it was very good even though it wasn't exactly what i expected. i would like to see nao's book about jiko though.

there was a line about creating a beautiful world in your head and then changing it to the point where you can't get it back when you write it down. i feel like this a lot. i've been meaning to write a novel, but i spend thinking about how nothing is coming out perfectly, and i lose motivation. maybe one day.

Nicholas pressed his head between his hands. "Is it possible," he asked, "that for twenty-two years I tried to act for the best and that for twenty-two years it was all a mistake?"
The question was astonishing. It was completely beyond the the bounds of propriety for Rodzianko to answer, yet, realizing that it had been asked honestly, man to man, he summoned his courage and said, "Yes, Your Majesty, for twenty-two years you followed a wrong course."

- Robert K. Massie, Nicholas and Alexandra

this book is making me more emotional about the romanovs than i thought i'd be. admittedly, i'm more depressed about the children being killed than anything. nicholas ii made his own bed really.

also, i still don't understand how alexandra was so into rasputin when he was an actual rapist. i mean, when everyone else on the planet thinks rasputin is a scumbag, and you're the only one who has positive things to say about him, maybe you're the delusional one. just a thought

here is an article about photography in art museums.

i'll admit, i'm one of those people who takes photos regardless of the rules. (never with flash though!) i think i made it about halfway through the kunstmuseum basel before getting caught. although, to be fair, i wasn't entirely sure about the photography policy because i completely overlooked the signs that say no photos.

however, i will say that even though guards at the louvre don't have to concern themselves with visitors taking photos, there are plenty of people who get away with touching the art. but the guard to visitor ratio is pretty high, so that's to be expected i guess.
