Goodbye, autumn

autumn 22 playlist mood: a lazy ripple in the water—coffee burns the tongue—long dark nights filled with flashing lights and dancing—the way a bit of amber light touches your face as it turns—crying until I can’t breathe, laughing until I can’t breathe—a ten minute voice note—a cold beer, a cigarette—taking off my clothes and strewing them across the floor like pregnant conkers—long showers, reading poetry aloud, shouting ‘I love you’ out the window as a friend passes, watching the streetlight flicker to nothing

what do you run in? i wanna start and i know this sounds dumb but i feel like i don't understand what i'm supposed to wear, especially in these colder months!
when I started I just wore some shorts and a t-shirt I already had. there are no rules :-) nowadays I wear a running top, leggings and trainers and I have a lil running belt for my phone/keys etc just easier that way. I would wrap up a little (tights/leggings etc) at this time of year - even though you'll get sweaty it's worth keeping your joints and skin from getting too chilled

Galina, i'm a first-year graduate student with a focus in literature and i am just really struggling. :-( with the workload, yes, but also with having to participate in class discussions - I'm a really shy person and have always found trouble here but grad school is even harder because everyone else is so damn articulate!! I feel like such a weirdo and it makes me really sad. Any advice? 🖤 you
Can you maybe write down what you think ahead of class and try reading it out? Just listening is ok too, if you're getting enough out of it. You're not weird and I always cack it whenever I have to speak in front of a group sending love xxx

hello!! are there any vegan foods / recipes you’ve been enjoying lately? hope you’re doing well x
hey! here are some of my favourite cookbooks : - ) thanks, I hope you're ok too.
I'm newly obsessed with dr rupy's series thrifty cooking in the doctor's kitchen and I've been cooking some of those recipes, really easy stuff that's quick and cheap.
on the other end, I've got quite into french and mediterranean style foods – I can confidently say my potatoes boulangeres would knock your socks off 😈 I just adapted a regular recipe!
I really want to make a gingerbread house this year, me n my mum always used to every year, but I'm skeptical of the vegan recipes - if anyone knows a good one hmu

hi galina! do you have any tips for someone who wants to start writing on their own, maybe a blog/substack about art/film? i'm quite shy on social media but love writing and want to get a start. thank you!
well tumblr is obviously a fantastic place to try things out :) and it's easy to be anonymous. medium is also pretty good :)

It’s London—it’s night, it’s nearly morning, and after an unseasonably sunny day, the mist is settling over cranes and tall glass buildings—it’s still mild, but it’s refreshingly cool—we run for the 55, I’m wearing a novelty veil and a sash which keeps falling around my ankles, a car slows and a man shouts with one elbow leaning out of the window, ‘don’t do it!’—we make the bus—my friend writes our names in the condensed window and puts a heart around our initials—it’s the temporariness of it that makes me blink back tears as I smile, sat on my friend’s lap with her arms gripping me so tight—on the bridge, overlooking everything, I feel overwhelmed with love

Hi Galina! I was wondering how you build the confidence to express opinions on art, literature, etc? I have an MA in literature and I can write *academically*—but often feel self-conscious having a ‘personal’ opinion, and you seem to express views on art with such ease (and did even as a student). Did you ever struggle with this kind of imposter syndrome where you worry your subjective feelings about art aren’t ‘valid’ enough? How did you move past it?
oh god I think I'm just deluded that anyone wants to know what I have to say. then I go home and yell internally at myself about blathering on! does everyone get this, who knows, I think we're all just muddling along. I know nothing
