  • the color yellow
  • succulents, which remind her of California
  • Starbucks, which reminds her of California
  • really good Mexican food, which reminds her of California
  • sprawling urban decay
  • the smell of grapefruit, but not the taste of grapefruit
  • reading, writing, editing, and devouring literature
  • pretty fish
  • cooking things in the morning while listening to shoegaze sad girl music
  • and children’s education

  • Making lists and bullet journaling
  • Painting with watercolor, oils, and chalks as well as editing photographs that she takes
  • Linguistics and accents – especially Russian and Irish

  • Black cats, Halloween, Horror Movies – well-made or otherwise – and the number 13
  • Sunflowers and her mom
  • The way cream moves like clouds in coffee
