 I sing of Artemis, whose shafts are of gold, who cheers on the hounds,
the pure maiden, shooter of stags, who delights in archery, own sister
to Apollo with the golden sword.

for how else would I have gotten even one bullseye? and won (!) a contest that involved shooting through rings (!!) 

Tags:fun story: i can't close my left eye to aim, so i had to wear an EYEPATCH, with a SKULL and CROSSBONES on it, and also evidently i can't shoot WITH a sight, so he had me do it without it and i Improved, kai ta loipa, don't take me on your shooting party, i have no accuracy, that is why i am melee dps

Except for the jar of nuts, this is the epitome of “by his home shall you know him.”

but seriously that picture of the bookcase is the most intimate thing i’ve ever shared with you, forget complaining about depression and wanting to get laid* – it’s me in an object, or rather an assemblage of objects, if it were in a novel it would be too perfect to be realistic: the bunting, put up with care but still ugly at the ends; the nuts (unopened), symbolizing the start of a good project and the lack of follow-through, the books everywhere, the excess of lipsticks, the bags carelessly piled up, the general mix of order and disorder…

Is that the OED I see up top?

it is! it was once my grandmother’s and was passed down to me through my father, whom I kidnapped it from.

@literarymagpie tagged me to post 5 New Year’s resolutions, which I sort of made but didn’t articulate, and are the same as they are every year, which are:

Write more. 300 words/day and I’ll be finished by October! (they say, working on grinding out 70 more words)
Finish things. I’m very good at starting and not so good at ending. 

Be more thorough in my reading. I read very shallowly last year, and would like to have more extensive thoughts this year. 

Make friends offline. This is a Problem, because I have no idea how to do it, or if I’m even suited to having friends who haven’t known me for years and years.

And the obvious one, exercise more. Not for weight loss, but because I am tired of being very out of shape.
