What I Learnt Today

  1. monogamy is a social construct.
  2. guilt is a strong aphrodisiac.
  3. people don’t care about each other as much as they care about airbrushed bodies of famous women.
  4. if you knew what you were doing with your life, you might be bored.
  5. hugs are sexy and terrifying at the same time.
  6. if you want to fall in love, try by starting with yourself.
  7. sadness can, and will follow you everywhere, like a dog you turned away returning with dead birds to leave at your doorstep.
  8. fuck belonging to rightist parties, yogic clubs, fuck karmic exchanges at the bank or belonging in the arms of your lover — start by belonging to your consciousness.
  9. spending time with yourself will exhaust you. do it anyway.
