  • "This chocolate is so good I could rub it in my hair" Audrey Hepburn

    Some people tend to eat less when they find themselves in stressful situations. I, on the other hand eat more.

    Apparently Audrey Hepburn "did not head for the freezer and pull out a half gallon of Breyers: she got focused, probably worried too much, and ate less than she normally might" Pamela Keogh.

    Recently, I have been seeking comfort in a book store. I can spend hours in there browsing and picking up books that catch my attention.

    For some reason I found myself in the poetry section drawn to The Art of Struggle by Michel Houellebecq. Reading about human despair, alienation and disillusionment are in some way helping me seek a way out of my despair
