i am a bougie girl: A Little Respite

I am looking forward to a relaxing Sunday Brunch tomorrow amidst the chaos of my class final and this week's meal prep. I know that everything will come out alright. My final will get turned in, this week's meals will be prepared, and brunch tomorrow will be fun.

i am a bougie girl: The Wistfulness In Wasting Time

Wasting time does not happen by accident.  It takes a huge amount of energy to wile away your life. Of course, in the moment, you may not feel the life force as it slowly being drained from your soul. Rest assured it is being drained from you nonetheless.

Wistfulness has you clutched in its depths. It blinds you to the current reality of your life.
