“Cryptic crossword of a person”
Highly traditional. Driven, type A personality. Anti-feminist. Anti-foodie. First class snob. A walking contradiction of herself.
Demand excellence. Never settle for mediocrity from yourself or others.
I enjoy conversations that are straightforward and candid.
I have an “all or nothing” mindset, which has its benefits and drawbacks. When I’m interested in something, I invest all of myself into it.
On the other side of suffering is greatness. Difficulty/struggle is often necessary to grow.
Low key breatharian. High key snakeoil saleswoman. Spleen model wannabe.

iwooltheworld: I have really dry skin just on my hands. This is year-round problem.
Often, my fingers bleed because they are so dry. I wash my hands 3-5 times a day. I drink a good amount of water.
I’ve been taking Vitamin E (both orally and topically). I have also used mineral oil, olive oil, coconut oil, lard, petroleum jelly, aloe, commercial lotion, etc.
I bought a machine to dip my hands in hot wax to add a protective layer.
All of these methods give temporary results.
I’ve been reading about Vitamin A for skin. I’m considering consuming liver for the first time to get Vitamin A from a natural source. I hear it’s an acquired taste, but quite rich in nutrients. I wonder if my dry skin is some sort of vitamin deficiency.
iwooltheworld: I’m evolving into my future self.
It’s a slow process—kind of falling into myself, exploring the abyss which is my mind. Constant discovery 🐑💫
iwooltheworld: Just received an unexpected message from an old friend. Brings me down memory lane.
I find it incredible how I’ve changed so much in so little time. I wonder how my friend has changed too.
iwooltheworld: Inflation is wicked. Money is tighter. Sometimes I think I should seek additional employment to make ends meet.
But then I realise that that would mean less sun. Less hiking. Less time spent just being with myself.
And that is more valuable to me.
So I’d rather cut back on things I truly don’t need than to overwhelm and lose my sense of self.
Current American culture encourages people to be workhorses, exhausting their bodies and minds. I don’t want to be part of that.
I want to remain VIBRANT, with good balance between work and relaxation.
iwooltheworld: I don’t really like fashion. I’m simple. I wear black, dark blue and grey a lot. I don’t wear jewelry.
I find the thought of planning outfits to be emotionally fatiguing. I’d rather spend that energy on something else.
But yesterday, I realised that I really like athleisure, if it’s done tastefully. Some athleisure can look frumpy. But I think if I ever really gain an interest in fashion, that’s the route I’ll take.
