Brown eyes, deuteranomalic. Oh the irony.


These past weeks showed me something that I have been denying all my life. I’m a memory hoarder. I use some serious space in my room to keep pictures, letters (well, mostly envelopes, really), postcards, gig pins, bracelets, descend commemorative jacket, 17th birthday gift bag, another jacket, a cassette tape, another bag, shoes…

Where have I been? I know, right? This whole article is about laziness and living under a rock. Also, I hate iOS 10.
