“rest and be thankful.” // w. wordsworth
unintended hiatus aside, there are very few benefits of being as waylaid by illness as i was over the last six days or so.
i can’t recommend the fever for anything other than having a chance to wear your most enormous knit sweater, that one that fits under absolutely no coat whatsoever. there is the constant sinus headache that makes your eyeglasses absolutely mandatory, instead of cutely perfunctory. and of course, there’s nothing as cleansing as staying in bed for for four days not putting on a stitch of make-up to make your skin say… thanks, thanks for this feeling of physical dreadfulness – it was worth it to get my dewy skin back. it wasn’t worth it, but let’s be thankful for small mercies. in five days, i used five products – thankfully one of them was toothpaste, to the rest of them? just… thank you.
