Not much of anything has been going on in the bubble universe I inhabit, hence the lack of postings. This past weekend I ventured back to Massachusetts to visit my family (and drink my dad's homebrews, eat free food and also eat more food) and came back with materials to give a second go at becoming a green thumb. I love having plants around my apartment—one of the good things about living with my friend Molly (she's a gardener)—but I'm pretty bad at keeping them alive and healthy. Given that my mum is pretty damn good at gardening, I should, theoretically, be much better at it. So she sent me on my way back to Brooklyn with some dirt, a few containers and some Coleus seeds. I guess she figured these shouldn't be hard to care for and they're also colorful little fellas. She gave me the assorted/rainbow pack, which means I have no idea what colors are going to sprout upon my windowsill. That's something I shall discover—unless I commit some sort of flora shmashmortion—in 7-14 days.
