Meiji Almond Chocolates = very, very good. I didn’t know they were/are “one of the most popular chocolates ever” in Japan — but I can definitely taste why!
Other things I like = Garnier + Redken hair products, St. Ives + Neutrogena + higher-end natural beauty/skincare products. Johnson’s Clean & Clear range was really not-so-good for me, but what I could afford during my early-mid teenage years.
Over the past 10 days, I’ve managed to clear out some sh*t from my life which I should’ve binned a really long time ago, lol (as in, years ago). I tend to focus my energies very intensively, so thankfully I didn’t spend every single waking minute on the said person/thing (that’s been eradicated out of my life for good, this time / “you’re full of shit and not man enough,” I wrote in a text message / best string of text messages I ever sent in my life).
So I’ll probably be taking a few days to chill out…I have some things to ponder over. Mainly with regards to my sexual life. I don’t know if I want to continue being enslaved by my ideals, or go the other direction and “run around freely,” so to speak. I have tried both, but for some reason seem to be unable to fully experience the latter option (so far), even though I have been willing to accept any and all consequences fully. Both sides have pros and cons — exploring via writing works to an extent, I think? After which one will actually have to DO something — depends on the individual too though.
I tend to go underground/very quiet for a while, just before or when I’m planning to release some new projects. I actually have 2-3 projects sitting around somewhere. All that’s left are the covers and some final touches…and a bunch of outlines for new projects that I *wanted* to complete in the past 10 days, but didn’t, due to uhm, “random activities/opportunities” that showed themselves, lol.
P.S. I need to pack my room first. It’s been in an absolute mess for a while, and I think de-cluttering it would be positively psychologically beneficial.
