[ mini environmentalist ]
Of the many things I'm obsessed with, I have a small, fairly innocuous fixation with KeepCup s. On the whole, it's a reasonably healthy preoccupation, and much less disastrous than previous ones. In fact, it's pretty constructive if you think about it, and ...

[ recap ]
I wasn't going to write this for a number of reasons. Firstly, while I do, in fact, watch reality tv shows, I try not to let them colour my ideas or experiences too much. Mainly because they are based on fragmented, heavily collated, and frankly biased vers...

[ bibliophile ]
