alexandra ewing is on the internet.

twenty-something philadelphia-area online diarist comes home in the midst of a total breakdown and eventually makes good, to an electrifying soundtrack of '60s power pop.

it's the feel-good movie of the summer.

In unrelated news my therapist had to walk me through breathing while crying today and told me some people (read: me) have a fear of success. So. I am looking forward to a vacation.

If there are no pictures of a person on the internet, do they actually exist?

In four short hours I will be leaving for enemy territory (Pittsburgh during playoffs) to see one of my favorite people in the world and I couldn’t be happier about it and I will probably still use the internet and things but technically during this weekend alexandra-ewing is off the internet.

‘Crave You’ by Flight Facilities is my new jam.

This song forever and ever a hundred years.

I am still working on a paper I have due tomorrow. I put off writing it because I didn’t want to write it: it’s supposed to be a personal essay, and I knew from the assignment that I wouldn’t be able to write about anything but the hoarding, and I didn’t want to write about the hoarding, but here I am at 2am, writing about the hoarding. I have to be up in five hours for work and I am still not even close to done.

And I didn’t want to write about the hoarding because if I think about it for too long I start to cry. I am still so ashamed and embarrassed and I still carry it like a failure. I dropped out of college and came home and I had no choice in the matter but at the time I told myself it was because I was going to fix everything and I was going to fix my family and I didn’t. I failed. And I am not sorry for leaving that house behind but I am sorry for the things we lost: the physical, the items (a tin I owned that looked like the staid white outside of a Philadelphia hotel on the one side and then the technicolor reverse that showed the manic insides of the hotel with its lively occupants on the reverse, all my mother’s heirloom jewelry, the books, the baby pictures, the wedding photos, the Christmas ornaments, my childhood dolls, my brother’s microscope), but the intangibles too (my faith in my father, the belief I could feel safe in my own home, my sense of self and any confidence I once had).

And I am here now, trying to write a paper at the last minute and explain that I had to learn to sleep with my blankets pulled up over my head because birds can’t try to nest in your hair if they can’t get to your hair, and explain the good thing about rats is that they eat mice, and explain the sinking horror and shame and fear of waking up to your parents being arrested for letting the house fall into disrepair and literally hiding under the covers as deputies walked through the squalor with judgment and disgust and so eager to ridicule.

Four and a half hours now.

I am trying to write a paper about being the worst and I am not good at it and I never want to be good at it and yet I am here and I am writing this paper and I hate it.

I don’t make a habit of sleeping with men I’ve hardly spoken to but if I do it now and again, it doesn’t make me a bad person, so you can fuck off, Popey.

Her expressions, lord help me. The little pleased eye squint thing after Penne Zellweger alone!
