A Few Things I Need to Add to My Life

  1. More pattern in my wardrobe, as today I can't help but notice I'm wearing The World's Most Boring Outfit.

  2. More music, because I've gotten into a bad habit of listening to nothing or to the same things over and over.

  3. Less clutter. Adding less of something makes total sense to me.

  4. More fruits and vegetables.
  5. Daily art-making.
