Spicy Tomato Pasta

It would be nice to put on makeup and pants.

Technically, nothing is stopped me from doing that now.

Except I barely have enough motivation to practice proper hygiene. Who do I have to impress?!

I mean, welcome to my first world problem of the day, but I just want to get dolled up! But I’m sorry, I can’t fathom using my v expensive Wet & Wild highlighter when no one will actually see it. I’ve also spent these last 6 weeks going through some rigorous training. By that, I mean I’ve trained my hair to only be washed once a week. By train, I mean, I just ignore the grease or throw it up in a bun & headband & pretend everything is OK. Zoom calls aren’t even enough to motivate me. I’ve learned I can face the window in such a way I practically look like a ghost and no one *really* knows if I did anything to myself.
