After nine months of living in Zurich, I finally went to Üetliberg with Victor and it was more than incredible.
Granted, we did go when it was a weekend and filled with tourists, and could have been better. But I honestly loved it anyway, because I could not have made it up that slope without some one’s dog walking in front of me.
I think in the year that I was there I definitely saw at least three or four different views of Zurich Lake and the city itself from as many angles.
The moment I thought I was back on track with meals and sleep I completely venture off path. Establishing a habit is way hard. I spent a good three or four days last week eating properly and sleeping well and the moment I think I’m going well I lose it.
Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about self improvement and self love. I caught myself telling multiple people that the balance is hard because you have to hate yourself enough to improve but love yourself enough not to give up. Now that sentence is banging around my brain constantly.
I could make a zine out of it, probably.
Things that I bought yesterday:
5 x gouache tubes
4 x pairs of black school stockings
8 x pairs of grey and white school socks
4 x cotton stockings sized 10 – 12 yrs
a size 0 paint brush (synthetic golden sable)
3 x photo albums 200 sheets each
20 x kraft paper envelopes
12m brown kraft paper
a kneadable eraser
4 x washi tapes
an A5 210gsm rag sketch pad
I did a gouache painting of Iris Apfel and now I’m thinking of doing one of Lee Lin Chin to have a cute little duo of paintings of my beloved life goals.
