Wheelman & Co.

The perfect backpack. Silly foppish details on a fancy "performance" Chrome-type bike bag. It goes for the obscene price of $200, but that seems to be the going rate for decent looking backpacks marketed towards bike people. Considering buying. I would use it every day, after all. And it does meet all my criteria (weatherproof, roomy, small front outside pocket, comfortable straps, nice looking). It even looks just like the small army surplus bag I use on the rare occasions that call for a purse. But for a person who has been buying clearance rack Jansports her whole life, a 200 dollar backpack is a difficult concept.

I shall think about it.

Tiny Black Sketchbook and Tiny Watercolor Set

Do you ever read Hipster Runoff for a while and it makes you very tired? It can be emotionally exhausting to absorb that level of manic self-awareness. It is basically a website that loathes and makes fun of its readership. Yet it is still very popular and people keep coming back. Like an abusive boyfriend or something. Sometimes it is pretty funny but sometimes I am just like, why am I reading this? It feels masochistic. I wonder if other people feel that way.

I have stopped drawing my outfits over break because they have mostly been pajamas. Don't want to fall of the wagon too hard though. I will start again tomorrow.
