A list of something

by Teresa Finney

– Do everything for myself. Radical independence.

– Eight hours of solid sleep is a pipe dream. Five hours, in between waking up once or twice to throw a glass of water down my throat or to pee, is fine. I can survive on that.

– Employment activities. Hustle.

– Write three pages of long-hand every day. Don’t worry about “being in the mood” for it or not. Just do it.

– Talk to people.

– Read.

– Go for a walk.

– Stay away from men.
