September 18th, 2017
As has been my habit, it has been quite some time since I updated this space. In fact, I kept writing previews for new journal entries over on my Patreon... and then would forget to post them the next day. I'm also going to start posting these in blogpost form so they're saved.
I've been in the US since July, and it's been tumultuous. I hated returning but have gotten to see so many friends, do so many things in that time. NYC with Bex, where I also got to see my friend Kate Sinclaire. Baltimore with Artemesia for a few days before Woodhull 2017 and more people than I could possibly name. Working hard now that I'm back in West Philadelphia for a bit, trying to make money and get ready to make my move to Israel.
I've been focusing on a few different things; a big secret project that won't be unveiled until at least the beginning of next year. Some content for the blog, of course. I've also been doing a lot of contracted blogging rather than pitching articles, so I can focus my attentions more on my own projects.
There are so many things I want to share which aren't ready to be shared quite yet. In the meantime, I'll have to leave hints on my Patreon, my instagram story, and probably not too many other places.
I've also been posting some photography of mine over on the portfolio; there are a few blogposts of film that was recently developed.
In less work oriented things, I've been wanting to paint. I've been taking pictures. I'm wading into the waters of a non-monogamous practice with my partner, and it's bumpy and weird and challenging but good. I've been buying, cleaning, altering, and resuscitating vintage and antique clothing. I've just generally been keeping busy and trying to focus on things that are beautiful.
I hope you're also enjoying the beginning of fall.
I thought of this post when I was in bed, splayed out, using tiny tweezers to pull the hairs growing along what is commonly referred to as the "bikini line": in other words those hairs that trailed from my mons pubis down my inner thigh.
There have been plenty of studies, plenty of takes, and even more personal stories on the internet speaking to this. I could bury you in links. Instead, I’ll share a bit about my own experience with the power of consent.
According to the World Health Organization, treatment-resistant gonorrhoea is on the rise. This is what you need to know.
There's just something about smoking.
What lubricants would I recommend from a company that has over 1500 varieties?
You ever tried dating in a country where you don't speak the primary language? While you already have a partner?
What is it like to date while non-monogamous and in a foreign country? I don't know yet, because I'm anxious. Here are some of the reasons why.
Vulva not vagina: this is what I want in 2017.
