taipei

quarantine day 6 of 14: family thanksgiving call was nicer than expected :) quarantine day 5 of 14: set up my e-reader again, broke some drm. read the first essay in Trick Mirror, it's very good. quarantine day 4 of 14: it rained for the first time since i've been here! quarantine day 3 of 14: new weird snack: licorice watermelon seeds. very tasty, but the texture isn't great quarantine day 2 of 14: today's breakfast was called a "quiche", but it was really more of a crepe. delicious all the same. quarantine day 1 of 14: i ordered a wide variety of unhealthy snacks. most delicious so far are the "oreo wafer rolls" quarantine day 0 of 14: the hotel room is very small, but plenty comfy, especially after my long flight. outside my window, i can see two men attempting to repair the door on a silver van. worried that i'm going to fall into the pathology of feeling like i need to be constantly producing things, now that i don't have a job. ✉ @syx are those numbers from MHTRTC? i love that album :) ✉ @kirsten - a complicated question! — NYC feels most like "home", but i just moved from san francisco to taipei this morning. i'm hoping to settle in to taipei for a while, but it's definitely not home yet. ~~~ they/them
