Manic episode rn which means I will defo be crashing for like 16 hours after this
do you think hannibal would murder me if he watched me delicately place chips inside a sandwich and then smash it slowly before eating it
he’d either kill me or ask me why i prefer my sandwiches with chips and i’d shrug and say “i like the crunch”. which would prompt him to say something along the lines of “we often crave a taste more primitive, the crunching between our teeth used to be birthed from the snapping of bones from a fresh kill. is that what you are savoring for? tell me helena, do you hunger for brutality?”

Its hard when i need to keep reminding myself that i have time so that i dont go off the deep end with existential dread, but also needing to balance that by not wasting the time i DO have due to the fact that i keep telling myself ‘oh you have time’.
It sounds simple like… don’t waste the time you do have but don’t beat yourself up everyday for not doing enough, because you have time. But that’s a thousand times easier said than done.
Not jason kenney giving 100 dollars to those who get their vaccines now, therefore rewarding those who got us into this mess in the first place and saying fuck you to those who did their due diligence when we were supposed to
I wish I could lock myself inside a room where all time has stopped full of bookshelves filled with all the knowledge i wish to consume and means to learn all the skills I want and just exist in that space until I’m ready to come back out bc honestly this whole passage of time thing is real unsexy
17th and 18th century perfumes fell into two general categories: floral and musky.
Floral scents of the time were made from flower oils or waters distilled from blooms such as roses, orange flowers, and jasmine. These scents float near the top of the modern note range.
Musks are base notes– heavy yet subtle at the same time. They are often animal-based and were favored by both sexes because they blend well with the natural human scent, itself a musky note.
In an age of inconsistent bathing practices perfume served as a popular odor equalizer in the merchant and noble classes.
During the 17th and 18th century, there was very little difference between men’s and women’s perfumes. A man might wear a wash of rose water to fresh his skin while a lady might don a heady amber toilet for a candle-lit dance.
