I really want to like Spring, I really do, but every time I go outside there's a fresh menacing cloud of green-yellow pollen just waiting for me. I can't really escape it when I'm inside, either. Every morning I wake up with glossy goopy eyelids and I can't tell if its leftover dry-eyes ointment, or allergy leakage. It's very unpleasant.
Last weekend, I went thrifting for the first time in a while. I decided to check out two spots I hadn't been to before. They were right next to each other, anyway. I saw several things I liked at the first one, but everything was way too big. I'm not even particularly small, I just think it would be nice to not have to modify all of my clothes, so I didn't leave with anything. The second one mostly stocked vintage, so some of it was kind of pricey. But I could find things my size. There were a lot of cute sweaters, but I didn't want to wait another 6 months to wear them, so I ended up leaving with a cardigan that's still a little too thick, but I told myself I can wear it indoors so it's ok. Decent pastel cardigans that aren't wool are hard to come by!!! I regret not leaving with this awful unicorn applique sweater, too. I'll have to go back soon and see if it's still there.
Another thing I regret is agreeing to do some light freelancing for a friend who shot a music video and needed motion graphics for it, since I guess she's doing that now. She sent me some of her songs a while ago but I didn't know I'd get roped into it. Good for her for following her dreams, but I can't say I'm a fan. But she was pretty straightforward about what she needed and didn't ask for a friends and family discount either, and it really took me no time to do it. It should have been fine! We were supposed to meet up just for coffee and to discuss it more, but she had to cancel because I guess she indirectly got caught up in some legal trouble. I didn't ask for the details because we're really not close at all and I think I'm better off not knowing. But I hope she's doing well, and not just because I would like to be paid. But I do really want to spoil my dolls while the yen to US dollar exchange rate is good!
