Malaga Bluez



Just got back from a 10-day trip to Spain. Many, many photos to come, but let me just say two things:

1. Being internet-free for nearly two weeks is one of the best things that could happen to anyone. It was great to pass my time reading, drawing, and writing, or in any case focusing on ONE THING AT A TIME, instead of living under the permanent illusion of productivity while letting the multitasking  devils take over my body.

2. I am now a firm believer in karma: during our trip, every single one of my friends suffered immensely from mosquito/general bug bites. Seeing as I’m used to being a perpetual target for all the unsightly critters of the world, I boarded the return plane with a big smirk, announcing that – for once! – I had not been bitten or stung a single time during the trip. Two days later, my arms/face/legs/chest are covered in what appear to be mosquito bites. Literally covered. So, yeah. Either it’s karma or the powers that be will just not let me be a smug jackass.


  1. I am trying so hard to focus on one thing at a time instead of "multi-tasking" lately and it's so hard if the internet is plugged in! But I'm trying to maximize my time there as well.

    So glad to hear you had a good time. =)

  2. Wow, you've got a lovely blog! I'm following you now.
    And you're absolutely right: being internet free can be amazing (sometimes). So much more time for reading and watching films...

  3. Magical gif.

    I completely agree on the evils of multitasking... It allows you to do 10 things superficially rather than one thing really brilliantly.

  4. i just discovered your blog
    oh my...
    you are absolutely beautiful
    just wanted to let you know:)
