A good day.

Things I did today on my first alone day:
  • watched the rest of Girls, season 5
  • 3 loads of laundry (ugh. Why? GUILT-INDUCED. Must give less fucks.)
  • cried
  • (sadly) discovered someone who really needs my magical paper cranes more than I do now, so I'm going to send the little guys to her to help with her own health battles
  • wrote for a while at a coffee shop
  • had coffee with a friend
  • got the mail

Here's a picture of me and one side of my scar in the coffee shop. My hair is growing and I think of the scar as a bike path going through a thick forest. I was feeling sad about my short hair and not feeling like myself until I googled pictures of women with buzz cuts and then I saw Natalie Portman from a while back. No joke, it normalized the look for me a little. 

But mascara helps me feel more normal too. For real.

I gotta say, you are ROCKING that 'do my friend!

You (and your big smile) are BEAUTIFUL. Beauty comes from imperfections, not in spite of them.
