A Scorpio Races miracle

This is a very silly thing that I am nonetheless excited about:

Last month, I custom-ordered a book necklace using The Scorpio Races, my favorite book of all time.

Only I requested they use the Polish cover.

Can you blame me, though?

Perfection.

I couldn’t resist buying my favorite book in my favorite color.

After weeks of waiting, I finally found a slim envelope shipped from the UK in my mailbox.

Do you see this!? It looks just like the real thing!

The shop owner even made a custom spine and superimposed the English description on the back cover!

I’ve been having a hard time with the changing of the seasons. I’ve been busy and exhausted and ill. Even on good days, I’m emotionally exhausted.

And I’m really over being alone and frustrated with the men I meet, if you couldn’t tell from my dating app post.

I feel better facing the day with one of my favorite stories on my person.

It’s a silly thing.

Its impact is tremendous.

 

 

You can find fromnewleaf’s shop on etsy. They’ve closed their custom necklace orders (I imagine because of the coming holiday) but they have other great items available.

Keep them in mind after the holidays die down!

In 2014, tired of my pop culture rants, my mom told me, "You should start a blog!" In 2015, needing a place to gush about the new Star Wars trilogy, I created this site. In 2016, while working an insane schedule at the local bakery, I stopped writing. That same year, I moved to Seattle. Picture every fresh-faced young woman you've ever seen stepping out of a taxi in a movie. That was me...only with a lot more anxiety and shorter hair. Living here has been a trip. I'm not always happy, but I find plenty of stuff to write about. I love to call out, complain, overreact, analyze, and reimagine. This site contains the fruit of that labor.
