A new study points to a conceptually novel therapeutic strategy for treating depression. Instead of dampening neuron firing found with stress-induced depression, researchers demonstrated for the first time that further activating these neurons opens a new avenue to mimic and promote natural…
does anybody else think tired and sleepy mean two totally different things
sleepy is cute and dozing off and happy but tired is 10 cups of coffee and murder
also, napsy is like sleepy except less urgent and cuter. this is true because i said so.

I need you in my life to choose clothes for me. (well, if i can afford them, hm…)
hahah believe me i can’t afford any of this stuff either. but i can tell you what i do instead, which is hit thrift shops and the like. find some layerable basics in black and/or neutral colours, some well-made maybe-slightly-oversized pants and sports/suit jackets, a couple of well-made and well-fitting collared cotton shirts (these are much harder to locate so hoard ‘em if you find ‘em) and some shoes/accessories. you can spend more money on the latter if you have it cos a) you can conceivably wear them every day b) cheap knockoffs look awful and don’t last c) they turn a $10 tshirt into a ~*look*~ while also e.g. drawing attention away from the fact that said shirt is held together with safety pins (because it is my last clean shirt and i am too lazy to actually fix it shhhh just call it “minimal punk” and leave me alone ok).
then i can go home, put on some tunes, probably drink some bourbon tea, and try stuff on in different permutations. because everything is layerable and utilitarian and neutrally coloured & thus could conceivably go with everything else i have just created INFINITE** OUTFITS (**ok a REAL AND CONCRETE BUT SURPRISINGLY HIGH NUMBER OF OUTFITS). fine-tuning will probably involve consulting my style tag or creating a spontaneous backstory for a character who’d want/need to wear this stuff, which will ironically prevent me from looking too costumey unless that is what i’m going for. (a solid 15-20% of these outfits will be tragically flawed but i will not figure this out until i have left the house and am probably about to run into someone attractive. these are the risks we take.)
the benefits of this approach are multifold. you can stack statement pieces/accessories on top of your basic stuff and look eccentric when you want to or stay understated if that’s your jam. you can be semi-confident in your ability to throw something coherent together when rushed or hungover. your cost per outfit will decrease dramatically. also, you will feel like cayce pollard.
a lot of the stuff i post is about detail, cut, fit and fabric so i will never truly attain yohji looks with my pinned up 90s department store skirts :( but if you experiment a little and learn to pick stuff that fits you it will pay mad sartorial dividends. have fun.
