John made a big batch of pork bulgogi and then a pot of apple-cinnamon oatmeal and the two smells together lingering in the kitchen somehow smell exactly like 包子 and I haven't had those in so long and I miss them so much and I'm hungry and sad. 😭 I don't even know where you can get them around here. 😭
So, I'm definitely sick.
I suspect I'm sick because my nightly routine for the past several nights has been staying up till 4 or 5am looking at adoptable cats on the internet & crying, then sleeping very little & getting up fairly early in the morning in an attempt to "get my sleep schedule back on track," but it may very well have been something I ate today, or perhaps some combination of the two.
Either way, I feel so gross & puke-y & I haven't left the house all day. RIP my PoGo streaks :(

Happy #FountainPenDay ! I'm celebrating by scrolling endlessly through JetPens, whispering "I love you" to all the beautiful pens I covet but can't afford to buy (and also do not at all need)! 🖋️ 🖋️ 🖋️

My aunt's gonna get me this book and I'm so excited about it! I find most poetry kind of annoying, but when it hits, oh god does it hit.
How can you tell when your house is sinking? I swear to god our floors are *noticeably* more uneven now than they were 3 years ago when we moved in. And there's a spot in the basement where the curve of the floor fills me with dread. And the tile grout in one corner of our bathroom has separated now, and... I never expected this house to be our forever-home, but I also don't want it to collapse while we still live in it, nor to have to pay to rebuild the foundation before we can sell it & move.
I love winter and cold weather because I like wearing lots and lots of layers of clothing, but I'm not so keen on the part where I'm wearing a tank top, long-sleeve shirt, sweater, and a big cozy scarf *inside my house* and I'm still *freezing* somehow. My husband is wearing only a short-sleeve shirt under a hoodie and is radiating heat. H o w ? 😩
Oh boy, I went down an internet rabbithole, and now I am all think-y feel-y and I would really rather not be today, I have things to get done and I don't have the time to ruminate rn. 😩
Anyway! I made a *phone call* and *talked to an actual human about an important thing* like an *adult*! Pls give me a cookie and/or a medal now, I have earned it. 🍪/🎖️
