Describe the room you're sitting in:

  • I'm sitting at the kitchen counter clocking into work.
  • The counter is white quartz resin. (I always warn people who remodel their homes that it tends to absorb liquids and discolor if you're not careful.)
  • The kitchen includes my parents' old refrigerator replete with Instax photos and silly magnets.
  • I quite like my living room, even if my boyfriend often says I leave out too much clutter.
  • It has a jute rug (IKEA), brown leather sofa (Article), a fake Noguchi coffee table (Wayfair), and my cat Holiday (Holly, for short) curled up in her basket (Daiso).
  • There's a monstera. She's healthy, but looking for light and a little bit "leggier" than I'd like.
  • We have a peg wall that displays some of our favorite things: homoerotic magazines, scented room sprays, small handbags, and a vintage Pekkle coin bank. It's very gay, now that I'm writing it all out.
  • On the TV console sits a Pandorobou plush. He's an adorable mouse-bread thief character from JP! I adore him greatly.
