September.

I detoured on the way home at work to buy a candle tonight because I had a sudden craving for one. I have a freelance brief I’ve been putting off, a complicated page for a busy, info heavy website. I’m exhausted. I think, maybe a nice candle will help me sit down and tackle this son of a bitch. Nup, now I just wanna take my candle with me and go have a long hot bath. 

My skin has been intensely itchy the last few nights and I haven’t been sleeping much. It’s not too broken, just bone dry and ferociously itchy. It’s almost worse when it’s not broken, because I feel like I can scratch harder without doing damage, and that just perpetuates the scratching cycle.

I toss from 1 til 5, trying to sate the itching behind my knees, my ankles, my shoulders, my neck, my elbows, it taunts me and moves every time I think I’ve gotten rid of it. I check the clock when I can’t bear it anymore, surely it’s 7 and I have to get up. But the hours drag, even an antihistamine does nothing anymore. I can’t take any more than one Phenergan because I have to drive to work in the morning. I pass out somewhere around 5 and wake up to my alarm at 6:45. I snooze three times for five minutes each and drag myself out of bed at 7.

I’m dying for summer. I need to get into the ocean and let the salt water and sun burn away my eczema. It stings like fuck but it works every time, better skin from a single day at the beach, healed by the end of summer. I’m too pussy to go when it’s cold so I put up with this shitty, crusty excuse for skin. 

I’m tired. I need my skin to stop being so motherfucking attention seeking so I can sleep and do work and have a life. Maybe I’ll just stay up til 5 doing this freelance job, it’s not like I’ll be sleeping anyway. 

Whiny post is whiny. I know I don’t even have it that bad , a lot of you guys going through TSW are going through hell. I should shut up and be grateful.

Typeface Memory Game: The Quick Brown Fox Jumps Over The Lazy Dog

For everyone who wishes to enhance their skills at recognising typefaces in a playful manner. A typeface memory game. With twenty-five pairs of cards, each presenting a different type family, this is a very stylish and interesting typographic concentration game. The kit includes a typographical glossary with the main terms used in typography as well as a text about the evolution of type design, locating in history each one of the fonts used in the game.

Yeah I have designer bags.. under my eyes. Thanks eczema & insomnia for another sleepless night. #selfie #whatissleep

sfumare asked:
Once you get this you have to say 5 nice things about yourself publicly and then send it to 10 of your favorite followers (not back to me though). Thinking good thoughts about yourself is hard but it will make you feel better, so give it a go, for the sake of spreading positivity!

Ack, read this message and completely forgot about it until now. Will do in the next few days :) thanks for the tag @sfumare.

Mmm peanut butter blondies. Can you guess what the secret ingredient is?

OREOOOOOO.

When people tell you the best treatment for eczema is to “not scratch”. LOL THANKS BUDDY. I hadn’t even thought about that one! Go fuck yourself.
