note to self: go outside

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived." —  Henry David Thoreau credit My phone died recently. Not like died because of its charge — permanently died. I'm not the only one whom this has happened to, I'm sure, and this isn't a complaint. Rather, it's an observation on how different the landscape of my life has been without it. I've been reading more, watching more TV, doing less doomscrolling. I found that I've missed my phone a lot less and simultaneously a lot more than I expected. And I've been noticing a difference in my mental state. My mental health is, apparently, linked in part to the device I hold in my hand 99% of the time. Who knew?

Spring Flowers

I have seen a lot of people posting pictures of flowers lately, so I decided to follow suit. Captions are *below* the pictures.

These aren't very recent. They are from last year; when my Mom's rosebush bloomed. Aren't they pretty?


I really like this ^^ one; it turned out pretty well.




I was trying to get a good picture of them on the grass. This one was the best one, too.


My friend Emily arranged the flowers in this one. I'm not sure why she stuck the flowers in like that, but it turned out pretty nice.



These are some more summer-y flowers. They are I think Black-eyed susans, and they were growing in our backyard last summer.


And finally... I don't know what kind of flowers these are. Although you can't really see it in the picture, they had very complex, delicate centers that really intrigued me.

Sorry the pictures are so... grainy. I had to resize them. I hope you enjoyed them though!
