On feeling unremarkable

I am one
in a pair of ones
in a group of ones
in a room of ones
in a crowd of ones
in a mass of ones
in a land of ones
in a sea of ones
in a world of too
many ones to hear my one self sometimes but
Hello? I am still but one in seven
billion different ones and always questioning my oneness
Am I one?
Am I a number or am I a name?
Are you a two, three, four, or a five
or are we all the same?

Things that have made October bearable.

Every year, I find myself excited for Autumn’s arrival; for crisp leaves and warm drinks, cozy knitwear and milder temperatures. And yet, each and every year I am promptly reminded that I LIVE IN ENGLAND, and my heavily romanticised expectations of ‘fall’, well…. they fall short. It’s 2pm on a particularly wet and dreary day in mid-October, I’m bundled in four layers of clothing and I’m applying Blistex every hour in an attempt to combat my chapped and weather-worn lips. Yes; this is the sad reality of Autumn. It’s cold, it’s dark, and I’m bored of wearing jumpers already. While I’ll continue to yearn the onset of spring, I’m conscious that I must live in the moment, and so, I’ve compiled a list (NB: A fairly short one) of small (and some guilty) pleasures that have made October (slightly) more bearable.

(FAUX) SHEARLING – Because nothing makes me happier than practicality AND stylishness. I am all about resembling an overgrown baby polar bear in winter, and I am definitely about being swaddled in what is essentially a huge, fuzzy blanket. LOVE. IT.

22, A MILLION There’s been an unmistakable ‘Bon Iver’ shaped hole in my life for the last few years, and 
hoorah!
that hole has been well and truly filled by this corker of a !!!
new album!!! Yes, it really is wonderful, in the most mysterious, fractured and haunting way possible. I’d highly recommend setting aside fourty minutes of your life for a bubble bath, a mug of hot tea, and a full, start-to-finish listen. Particular favourites include ’21 Moon Water’ and ‘8 (Circle)’.

bon-iverPROJECT RUNWAY – Cold, miserable weather goes hand-in-hand with binge-watching cringeworthy TV, and this is my current go-to. It’s bitchy, ninety percent of the clothes are revolting, and yet every episode I find myself regretting not working harder in Textiles class. Side note: there is a refreshing diversity amongst this years cast, and this is, for obvious reasons, a really good thing. Excellent viewing.

PORRIDGE – Every few weeks or so I become completely obsessed with a food, and, naturally, I eat it as much as humanly possible, until I never want to go near it again.oats
Well, this month I’ve been eating oats like they’re going out of fashion, with banana/peanut butter/jam/apple/berries/literally anything. Warm, filling, and delicious, they really are an all-round winner. *goes to make porridge*

And finally…

LAUGHING AT DONALD TRUMP – Because, like many others, I’ve been doing a lot of that this month. 10/10, would recommend.
