I finished reading We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver a few days ago, on a car ride. I’ve been reading the book off and on for maybe the past month and a half or so, after putting it on my to-read list when the movie was released all the way back in 2011 (dude, in 2011 I was 14… what a wee beb I was!) and I decided I loved Ezra Miller and wanted to see everything he was in. Well, I finally got around to it, @14y/oMax! I found the damn book at a thrift store a year and a half ago and now I’ve finished the thing and I’m writing down some thoughts!
It’s the last day of this thing!!!!! Apologies for this belated post – I had kind of a rough go of it last night and spent some time crying my eyes out, which is possibly a post for another time if I ever decide to talk about this strained mother-daughter relationship o’ mine. But here we are, and better late than never, yeah?
ONE MORE DAY!!!! One day more like the Les Mis song? Today we’ve got another outfit that pushes me a bit out of my comfort zone in forcing me to combine pieces I thought wouldn’t work well together, and then upon finding them on my body I decide they do actually look kind of alright!
Another month down, and big things are gonna be happening – I’ll be going back to the US on the 9th of June, which makes these last few days in London all the more precious. I haven’t gone anywhere too far off and exotic this month, but I’m kind of a homebody, so that’s been nice. Also, when ‘home’ is currently ‘London’, home is full of things to do anyway, so it’s not like I’ve been staying in some potato farm in the middle of nowhere. (Although that might be cool? I would presumably have access to all those potatoes to eat.)
Anyway, this month in review we’ve got some cat photos (as always), some thoughts against digital detoxes and the Karlie Kloss/Joshua Kushner relationship (yes he’s Jared Kushner’s brother yes that means if Karlie ever gets married to him there’s a Taylor Swift/Donald Trump connection yes that appalls me), and a really, really great podcast episode.

The last 3 days of the 10×10 are upon us! Hallelujah praise the clothing minimalist lord. Today’s outfit is entirely a product of me being too lazy to shower and then just thinking, “Well, what can I wear that’ll go with my baseball cap?”
Day 7! That’s, like, 3/4 of the way through this damned thing, right? I’m waiting anxiously to regain access to my full wardrobe again, but I’m also kind of enjoying how this 10×10 pushes me a bit out of my comfort zone. I never would’ve paired a button-up with these pants, because I assume it would look awful, but I actually like the look of it! So that’s at least one thing this challenge is good at – helping me discover new outfitz~* (in the midst of crying about my lack of shoe choices).
It is so blissful getting to wear anything you want and have the whole of your closet available, lemme tell ya. But after a weekend away from this 10×10, we’re back! Onto the last half of this thing –
