okay i am back! no more not-doing-shit. it is back on. I am ready / funfetti. (metaphorical funfetti, because no more eating rando treats like it is not Ban-uary.)
remember how Heather Vee has a word of the year? today I thought of what mine just might be: shine. I know, I know. But here’s the thing: when Taraji P. Henson reposts her onscreen children’s photos on the Insta — of, say, Jussie Smollett singing beautifully or looking ridiculously handsome — she often captions them shine, baby, shine, and I love that. And fuck they are shining. An all-encompassing and yet directed word o’ the year. I’m gonna test it out.
