I got vintage eclectic but my like where is the cozy-sweater library goth aesthetic option??
Tbf I would be much more devastated to be called moist than moody.
Back when I was extremely broke (as opposed to just regular broke now 😅) I ate a LOT of black bean, kale and potato tacos. I was living in the PNW so kale was v cheap but you could sub in any dark leafy green.
Oh yes ham & white bean / ham & split pea soup is so dirt cheap and will be enough for like a week for 1 person.
Oh boy I mean great that he wanted to try but maybe start out with something a bit more beginner-level 😂
I WILL TAKE THIS CLASS PLEASE FORWARD ME THE READING LIST AND I WILL START IMMEDIATELY!!!
I also do not eat pickle butts!
I just finished Under the Pendulum Sun and it was really good and I really want to talk about it if anyone has read it and has Thoughts or Feelings.

Possession is one of my favorite books in the whole world, I hope you enjoy it!

Yeah I think that’s a big part of it, I just need something *nice* for my brain.
I haven’t - I’ll look it up!
